1977 Walker Evans Ford Truck

by Curtis Guise on July 22, 2013

A friend recently came across this vintage Ford near San Jose, CA.  After asking around it looks like about 50 of these Walker Evans special edition trucks were built by Dick Landfield for Ford to sell at dealerships in 1977.  Walker Evans raced a Ford for part of 1977 before signing his deal with Dodge in 1978.

This 1977 Walker Evans edition Ford is restored and looks amazing.  These photos are courtesy of the previous owner from their Flickr page.  She said they sold it about a year ago to someone in Ohio.

He hasn’t bought it and I don’t know if he ever got in contact with the owner. I will try to find out. Great job on the other truck you restored!

Hey Steve,
I ran across this site looking for pictures of this truck because my dad bought one of these back in the early eighties from a marine who was stationed in CA. The truck is in my possession and has been repainted and the roll bars and safety equipment removed, but I am going to restore it and wondered if you had anymore info on these? My dad bought it being told that it was raced in a baja event driven by an Unser. I remember there being stickers on the bottom of the door panels indicating that it was driven by Bobby Unser I think.

I recognize this truck from around town.
I’ve seen it a number of times, though its been years since the last sighting. If these pics are recent, then its still local. I’ll leave a note for the owner if/when I see it again.
