Flat 12 Gallery Building Killer Ford F-150 for SEMA
SEMA 2017 promises to be a Ford F-150 lover’s dream. And this hand-painted build is sure to stand out from the crowd.
The SEMA show in Las Vegas, which is happening from Oct. 31 to Nov. 3, is nothing short of an automobile enthusiast’s dream. Everywhere you look, you’ll find hundreds of thousands of square feet chock full of the latest and greatest parts and accessories. And, obviously, tons of amazing Ford F-150 builds. After all, the F-150 is the most popular, best-selling vehicle on the road. And from what we can gather, Flat 12 Gallery is building an extra special one for this year’s SEMA.
Dallas-based Flat 12 isn’t just some kind of glorified used car dealer, you see. They also churn out countless, incredible custom builds. So, it only makes sense that they would team up with Autonation, the country’s largest automotive retailer, to build a killer custom F-150. And while neither is completely spilling the beans on this truck, we did gather some clues from a recent blog post.
The blank canvas Flat 12 chose to begin with is a Shadow Black 2017 Ford F-150 with both the XL Sport and STX packages. Power comes from a 2.7-liter Ecoboost V6. But that’s pretty much where it all begins and ends. Because this nice new rig won’t be very stock when it’s all said and done. Instead, the guys at Flat 12 have teamed up with Auto Gear to make this Ford F-150 truly stand apart from the crowd.
To do that, the truck is receiving a full body wrap with 100% custom, hand drawn artwork. It’s quite the undertaking, but obviously worth the effort. To complement that amazing, one-of-a-kind treatment, a 3.5-inch Readylift lift kit and 20-inch Grid GD03 wheels were sourced from Tire Rack.
The artistic Ford F-150 will be on display at the Pennzoil booth in Las Vegas. And if you’re lucky enough to be there, we’re guessing it’ll be hard to miss!
