The ‘Caballo Del Diablo’ Bronco Is A 7-Time Desert Racing Champion

A wild, no-holds-barred desert rally race over the unforgiving terrain of Baja California — calling NORAA’s Mexican 1000 grueling probably doesn’t do it justice. Unlike its cousin, the Baja 1000, it’s a smaller event with fewer rules and regulations — meaning the vehicles that are allowed to participate are often a lot wilder (think Death Race 2000, except without the murdering). So when we tell you that the 1968 Ford Bronco you see before you is a 7-time class winner in that very race, we want you to understand how impressive that is.

Spanish for “The Devil Horse,” Caballo Del Diablo is piloted by Boyd Jaynes and Brian Godfrey — who dropped into it an extremely reliable, brand-spanking-new Ford Performance Parts X2347 V8 crate engine, which is good for 360 horsepower (even when run on cheap, low octane gasoline). The rig also rides on Fox performance suspension parts and a quartet of Yokohama Geolandar M/T tires, which shockingly survived the 1,300-mile trek without a single flat. And that’s just a fraction of what makes this beast so good at tackling unforgiving terrain. All told, this monstrous steed is another in a long line of examples of why the Ford Bronco is one of the best 4x4s ever built.
