Freaky-Ford Friday: 6-Door F-550 Is the Real King of the Road
Shy types need not apply, because this insane, ultra-white Ford F-550 is nothing less than pure sensory overload.
Ah, America. A land where gluttony reigns supreme. We like everything supersized around these parts, whether you’re talking about our meals or our trucks. Many, especially those in “other” countries, like to poke fun at our obsession with massive trucks. But those of us that enjoy tooling around in these cartoonishly large creations could care less. Because, well, you can’t exactly be self-conscious if you own something like this insane, all-white Ford F-550 we spotted at Mecum Auctions.
We’ve featured these mammoth 6-door Supertrucks before, but this one is even more over the top than those things. For starters, well, it’s really white. Like Don Johnson‘s suit from Miami Vice white. Like early Young Jeezy lyrics white. The side steps, bumper guard, you name it – all white. It’s the kind of in your face experience that only a red-blooded, red meat-eating American could love.
We’re also digging the fact that his particular Supertruck is based on a ’96 Ford, since most of them are built with newer bodies. That old school touch might not show up on the front, but the sides and bed are unmistakable. And in case all of that isn’t enough, there’s a huge set of chrome stacks and that giant brush guard to add to the effect.
Another interesting tidbit lies under the massive tilt hood. Instead of the typical diesel, the owner chose to stick with a gas 427. Which probably sounds pretty darn good bellowing through those massive pipes. Throw in an air horn, and we’re pretty sure you’ve covered all the bases. This Ford F-550 is nothing less than pure sensory overload. And that makes us love it even more, despite what all those detractors might thing.
