This 1977 Ford F-100 sits on a 2007 Crown Victoria chassis. This
concept gave the truck a great, low stance and also a much more
comfortable ride. The Police Interceptor Crown Vic's all had a very
heavy duty suspension and with some minor modifications, it fit the
truck perfectly. The F-100 is also powered by the 4.6L V8 from the
Crown Victoria and the 4 speed Automatic Transmission. Once the
body was body was fitted to the Crown Victoria chassis, it was
pulled back off and underwent a transformation to update the look.
The bed was customized to give more room for the tires giving the
truck a much more "Pro-Touring" look, especially with the lower
stance. The exterior was finished in a beautiful Diamond White
paint. The Interior was finished with a White & Grey Leather on the
seat, door panels and carpet. The Tilt Steering column from the
Crown Victoria was also retained and used in this build. Vintage
Air was installed, along with a Push Button Start. A Touch Screen
DVD/CD player with back up cam is mounted in the dash. Other
options include Power Assisted Rack and Pinion Steering,
Independent Front Suspension, 4 Wheel Disc Brakes, and Limited Slip
Rear End. A new Ron Francis Custom Built Telorvek CV-05 Wiring
Harness was professionally installed for the Engine and
Transmission along with a new Ron Francis 21 Circuit Body Harness
to assure all systems continue performing as designed. New Weather
Stripping was installed at the Door Openings and around all glass
Including the New Windshield. Over 800 hours were put into building
this custom F100. It is set up to drive and enjoy!

My oldest son, Rob, and I purchased an old farm truck that had almost as much rust as it did clean metal.
Let’s say you are buying your dream car, and you really can’t decide between the classic look of an old truck, or a modern muscle car.
So, what do you think is the fastest-growing segment of car collectors? European sports cars? Rare muscle cars? Classics?
An upcoming exhibit tracing the history of Ford F-Series pickup trucks since 1948, announced for January by LeMay seemed like a good jumping-off point for today’s Pick of the Week.
