800 Derita Road, Ste. A
With a slick paint, an aggressive stance, and a performance-oriented interior, this 1968 Ford F-100 restomod has an awesome speedy look. So it's a good thing this fresh build also has a 400+ horsepower motor and all the right supporting components to back it all up. The truck was recently gone through, ready for the new owner to take out and enjoy weather it is for an exciting ride or take to a show.
The paint is quite a cool presentation. They borrowed the graphite color from the more modern Fords and finished it off with an added metallic element mixed in. It looks so good that they also painted other areas, like the front bumper and grille. The total effect is a look that instantly announces this is a modern and custom machine. Everything looks so good because this restoration was finished only a few months ago by Forge Speed. You'll love more great details, like how the clear headlights gives this glowing eyes, there's complete new trim around the body, and the rear is smooth with a flush roll pan. And the 17-inch Boyd Coddington wheels are like bright beacons that draw your eye to the aggressive lowered stance. There's even liner paint in the bed to get down to real truck work.
Inside are more shades of silver, and the whole package is focused on speedy business. It starts with two awesome race-style bucket seats with proper competition harnesses. You'll slip behind the Grant sports steering wheel, and your right hand will be instantly attracted to the Hurst shifter. When you twist the key, not only does this one growl to life, but also the gauges glow with an evil red, including the digital tach.
The engine bay contains a beastly motor. This is a 331 cubic-inch stroker V8 from Blueprint Engines. The consignor states it has been built with go-fast goodies like a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, Edelbrock heads, and long tube headers. The full package is estimated at 430 horsepower, and the sound out of the dual exhaust let's everyone know this is a powerful pickup. You're in complete control of it all thanks to a TKO 500 five-speed manual transmission that now also includes a high performance clutch and lightened flywheel with mechanical linkage. This feeds a stout Ford 9-inch Detroit Locker with 3.73 gears. As you look at the undercarriage photos, you'll also spot other great performance upgrades, like the ladder bar rear end, Carrera adjustable coilovers behind each wheel, and four-wheel disc brakes.
This is the distinct pickup that's also an awesome performance classic. So if you want it all, call today!
