It is not too often that you see Bigfoot 1 with the 10 foot tall tires. The photo is tagged Bigfoot 7, which must be the monster truck trying to climb it. I kind of lost count of the Bigfoot monster trucks after the first three or four. Via Monster Mayhem.

I’m sure there have been other comments on this, but… The Bigfoots are almost impossible to track which one is which because they were almost all re-bodied at some point. I think you’re right about #1. Bob Chandler found the 10′ tires and adapted them to put a rest to the ‘Who’s biggest?’ arguments. Eventually, #5 was built specifically for the 10′ tires and sat more on top of them. #7 was converted to look the same as 5 later in it’s life.
Pretty sure the ‘small’ one is #3 with it’s first body. Although it usually had polished aluminum wheels or the duals all around. You can see the little ‘III’ after BIGFOOT on the door. The fenderwells are a good way to distinguish them sometimes.
Cool pics!
