1967 Ford with Cummins Power and Tracks is Unstoppable
Ford Franken-truck has an F-100 body, F-250 chassis, Chevy suspension parts and a Dodge drivetrain.
The video above comes to us from the YouTube channel of Brian Bormes and it features a truly unique 1967 Ford pickup that Bormes calls “Fummins”. On a normal day, this diesel-powered classic tears up the streets with Cummins power, but after a winter storm, the owner swaps on a set of tracks to create the ultimate snowmobile.
The truck in the video above looks like a 1967 Ford F-100 and in terms of the body, it is, but that is the only half-ton feature of this classic pickup. The turquoise body is mounted on an F-250 “Highboy” frame, with the front axle and suspension bits coming from an unspecified Chevrolet truck. The rear axle is a Ford 10.25-inch unit, but that is the only aspect of the drivetrain that came in a Motor Company vehicle.
Powering this 1967 Ford F-Series flatbed is a 12-valve Cummins Turbo Diesel engine from a 1993 Dodge Ram 2500. It has a few upgrades, including an Aurora ATS 3000 turbocharger, which help increase the output beyond the stock combination of 160 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. The power is distributed by means of the manual transmission and the transfer case from the Dodge as well.
We don’t know the exact power levels, but this unique truck packs big torque. In some cases, that would make charging around in deep snow difficult, but the owner of the 1967 Fummins has bolted up a set of American Track Truck tracks that make it unstoppable.
Playing in Fresh Snow
In the video above, this 1967 Ford F-100/F-250 hybrid beast is storming around a big, open area after heavy snowfall. The tracks allow the classic F-Series pickup to effortlessly storm through the fresh powder, but with the aggressive traction firing the snow into the air, the tracks also make for impressive-looking footage.
During the short video, we get to watch the Cummins-powered Ford from a variety of perspectives, including an on-truck angle and rolling footage from another vehicle running alongside the Fummins. Unfortunately, there is music playing over the video, so we can’t quite hear the tuned diesel engine, but it is still some fantastic footage of one of the most unique classic F-Series pickups online.
