I have been helping a good friend of mine put this truck together for about 3 years,we got it running last spring and he drove it around some during the summer(2012)but never finished it.He got tired of it and sold it to me last November.I have been trying to finish it up since then.I have been trying to get an interior put in it but have not found anyone around me who has time to do it ,so I am going to try and sell it unfinished.
My friend that started the build bought everything new except the cab,rear end,and wheels.The frame is new from DCR Hot Rods in Denton N.C.and has been powder coated a charcoal color,all of the suspension parts are new from Speedway.It has a new 604 Chevy crate engine with aluminum heads and roller cam,air gap intake and Edlebrock carb.(very powerful)It has a new 700R4 trans with 2200 stall converter. It has a new balanced drive shaft,all new power brakes,and unirack steering.(no play in steering) It has a new chrome tilt steering column,all new gauges,and a new wiring harness.The lights are all new and the headlights have the signals built inside them. New aluminum radiator and electric thermostat controlled fan.It has a new A model style bed with oak floor and stainless strips. A new stainless gas tank,and new billet fuel door inside bed. It has new bias ply tires from Coker (16inch) and new hub caps and trim rings.It has a 3.73 limited slip ford rear end.(works good with overdrive and tall rear tires).It has new glass,new aluminum windshield frame,and new power windows.
The cab was sand blasted and had new floor and patch panels where needed .The paint is nice with the exception of a few rock chips that I have tried to touch up. The truck has been driven less than 500 miles,it runs drives and stops good,and the ride is not bad for bias ply tires.
To be finished it will need interior, speedo cable,(needs the adapter that plugs in transmission also),emergency brake handle and front cable(it has cables running from rear wheels).The wheels that are it now have adapters,the regular patern is ford car.So if you want to change wheels and tires you have plenty of options.
I would like this picked up in person so you can see what you are getting. If you do not like it when you come to pick it up you do not have to take it.There has been a lot of money spent on this and someone will get a good deal. You may call Darrell with any questions at 276-608-4193,276-608-5543or276-628-6540 home.
Start with a Ford F-150 SVT Raptor as your base vehicle for modification, and chances are high that you'll end up with something pretty cool. Now, have those modifications done by professional lunatics Hennessey Performance, make the project turning the pickup into an ultra-long SUV, and the result stands a real chance of being a total kick in the ass. Let us present the Hennessey VelociRaptor then, in all of its awesomeness.
Hennessey has taken care in grafting a "Expedition style" rear cabin onto the Raptor, complete with an optional third row. The pictures we have show a cabin that's up to the fit and finish standards of the original Ford truck, too. The cab added over the bed also makes room for a massive load space out back, accessible via split out-folding doors and long enough for a person to lay down in (see video).
Mechanically, the truck-turned-SUV sticks with Ford's stock 6.2-liter V8, rated at 411 horsepower, or can be had with a supercharger and some 600 hp. Hennessey says the stock-motor VelociRaptor will run from 0-60 miles per hour in 7.5 seconds, while the hi-po version takes just 5.9 seconds. The SUV does take some of the off-road ability away from the Raptor, with the company saying it hasn't yet had the opportunity to test its capabilities. On-roading and "moderate off-road duties" are the current prescription.
Joe Hinrichs, Ford's President of The Americas (pictured above), announced today that in late 2014, the automaker will be building the 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder at its Cleveland Engine Plant, a move requiring a $200-million investment and the hiring of 450 new employees. European-built Ford products will continue to source this engine from the Valencia, Spain plant where all of these EcoBoost four-cylinder engines are currently built, and the new Cleveland engines will be used for all North American-made models.
Ford is planning to build its popular EcoBoost engines regionally to maximize production capacity and meet customer demand. Last year, Ford sold 334,364 vehicles with EcoBoost engines in the US alone, and that number is expected to swell to more than 500,000 by the end of this year, with global sales expected to total 1.6 million. By 2015, Ford says that 95 percent of its nameplates will offer an EcoBoost engine.
One such vehicle that could be adding an EcoBoost engine, according to Automotive News, is none other than the 2015 Ford Mustang. The report says that Ford could use either the 2.0-liter EcoBoost or an upcoming 2.3-liter EcoBoost in the sixth-generation pony car.
Typically, we'd expect a vehicle from 2006 to fall well short of a more modern vehicle, both in terms of performance and style. Of course, the Ford GT is not your average offering from the Bush era. That's doubly true when the 2006 GT in question belongs to one Chip Foose.
Purchased by his wife as a 50th birthday present, Foose is showing his custom, personalized GT at the 2014 SEMA Show. The 5.4-liter supercharged V8 breathes a bit easier thanks to a full Magnaflow Performance exhaust, but Foose's GT isn't all about the performance.
Instead, the car customizer extraordinaire has focused on tasteful aesthetic enhancement, tweaking the rear end by removing the bumper and trimming the frame extensions. The wheels, meanwhile, are one-off aluminum alloys, designed by Foose himself. Like the stripes, the wheels feature orange accenting.
