Harm's - Ford F150 "SHELBY-BOSS " style custom Truck
Ford "Shelby-Boss" Truck by PTTM
This sad old Ford truck stood outside for several years waiting for a refit or restoration. The Owner turned to PTTM with the request if we could do the project and he told us he wanted it fully restored and upgraded he wants to use it as a promotional truck for the JUMBO supermarket chain in Holland and to drive and enjoy it every now and then. After we discussed some of our ideas on how the truck should be build and looked and could be improved he liked what he heard and was impressed with what he saw what we did on the other current projects that we are building. So he handed over the keys and we picked the sad looking '77 Ford F150 truck up from its last resting place and took it into our shop. The picture of the design example below is not final at all, it is just an indication. We are currently making studies on how the final result should look but we have chosen the BOSS & Shelby mustang design features and the plan is to make this truck into a ONE OF A KIND high-performance truck with classic style drivetrain but with modern day braking and handling, that will carry its original features combined with details of the legendary 70's mustangs!. The complete chassis will be fully upgraded and boxed and lowered. The truck will receive a modern suspension with air ride and a rack and pinion steering kit, modern brakes, and more special options. The body will get some special SHELBY-BOSS design features and all the old trim pieces will be removed and the body smoothed. The nose and grill of the truck will stay almost as is today as we feel its important that the truck stays recognized as an F 150 truck. But you will see along the way how the truck will look in the future. Before we can start the car will be dismantled and inspected as the body and chassis and all components are in real bad shape. All will receive a special acid bath for removing old rust and paint and afterward the complete car will be coated to give it a lifelong protection against rust and dirt. Also the old engine an driveline will be taken out and make way for a 555cui !, special build MONSTER BOSS 429! style engine with Kaase-BOSS nine heads and approx 700+HP and a newly build high-performance transmission with manual shift kit and with and modern overdrive system. More details and pictures of the design and build will follow during the build.
THIS PROJECT IS UNDERWAY!
