A 1,500 HP, 7 Second Ford F-150? Yes, Please!

A lot of people may think it’s silly and pointless to build a fast pickup truck. Well, the owner of this 2000 Ford F-150 isn’t one of those people, in fact, he’s quite the opposite.

The owner of this particular truck set out to build the fastest Harley-Davidson edition truck on the planet, and it’s probably safe to say that he accomplished his goal. I mean, just look at it. It’s basically a race truck!

Powering this beast is a DOHC,  390 cubic inch aluminum block V8 engine courtesy of a Ford GT.  But this is no “stock” Ford GT; it’s been bored, stroked, and topped off with an F-2 Procharger. The result is a whopping 1,500 horsepower, which is enough to propel this full size truck to a pretty amazing 7 second quarter mile!

Make no mistake, there isn’t much original Ford truck going in this project. A full tubular chassis has been fitted underneath, and a fiberglass front-end replaces the heavy stock bits.  The interior has been replaced with a full cage, and only the parts needed to go (really) fast and monitor drivetrain performance remain.

Of course, who’s to say you can’t take this beast on a grocery run, because it does remain street legal.  It’s highly doubtful that any truck is going to draw a crowd the way this one will at your local cruise night. Plus, you don’t have to worry about some chump challenging you to a race. If he does, you can easily recoup some of that sub $100K investment it took to buy the truck!
