Bigfoot was built in 1985, and was the last BIGFOOT vehicle to begin life
as an actual factory production pickup truck. The original chassis was
extensively modified to enable it to handle 48-inch tires and the stresses
produced by a 571 cubic inch, 1,000 horsepower, supercharged aluminum hemi engine. This little truck was grossly
overpowered. The truck made its debut on July 4, 1985 at Jack
Murphy Stadium in San Diego, California. At the wheel the first time out was the
monster truck sport's first woman driver, Marilyn
Chandler. In 1987, the
truck received new graphics and paint and was renamed BIGFOOT Ranger.
1993 it made monster truck history for the last time when it became the
first BIGFOOT truck ever sold for private, non-performing use.
