High Roller II 1979 Ford F-350 Monster Truck - Dirty Version - Very Limited Availability
• Hobby Exclusive
High Roller was built in 1985 by David Mattingly of Fordsville, KY. The design was heavily influenced by Bigfoot 1, the Original Monster Truck. Greg Coston purchased High Roller in 1986. He and his friend Rodman Hobbs enjoyed the truck and performed many car crushes at Ford dealers, county fairs and jamborees. After being bought, sold, and modified several times it was eventually donated to a church where it sat in a field for a decade.
Jeff Krekeler of Farmington, Missouri purchased it from a craigslist ad early in 2015 with the intention of building a Bigfoot tribute truck. He was surprised when Rodman Hobbs tracked him down and shared the High Roller history, eventually convincing Jeff to fully restore the truck.
Jeff enlisted the help of his brother-in-law Rob Maize and Alan Fenstermaker of Shaker Racing Monster Truck Team in Sparta, MO to make the restoration a reality. In 2017 Michael Drake undertook additional work to bring High Roller up to its current state of awesomeness.
