This Blown, Chopped, Pro Street 1969 F-100 Defies the Laws of Physics

Trucks are typically a afterthought when it comes to building a fast means of transportation.  The reasons why are obvious – trucks are generally heavier than cars, and they have the aerodynamic efficiency of a barn.  Since weight and aero are the enemies of speed, you have to work harder to make trucks fast.

That didn’t deter the owner of this 1969 F-100 from building what turned out to be a screaming street beast.  It’s the opposite of subtle, with a chopped top, tubbed rear, and giant blower sticking out out of the hood.

And it appears to have the go to accompany the show.  Two Demon 750 cfm carbs sit on top of that big huffer, and it’s all attached to a built 351 Windsor.  The power goes through a C4 automatic transmission back to a 9-inch rear end with 3:73.1 gears.

Out back, a four link setup with adjustable shocks houses the giant meats.  A Mustang II front end completes the upgrades underneath that not so subtle exterior, and stopping power has been greatly enhanced with Wilwood brakes.

The result is a Ford that sounds as nasty as it looks (in a good way).  So if you’re the type of person who laughs in the face of physics, this truck’s for you.
