Let’s Buy a F-750 and Make It a Drift Truck!
Chassis cab trucks are common sellers amongst all of the manufacturers. They allow the commercial truck buyer to configure a truck to exactly what it needs to do. Need a dump truck? No problem! Need to haul a trailer full of beer? Easy peasy.
The new F-650 and F-750 models that debuted at the NTEA Work Truck Show in Indianapolis are fine examples of this in practice. With 725 lb-ft of torque available from a 6.7L Power Stroke diesel engine, it’s capable of dealing with whatever the purchaser decides to throw at it.
But whenever I see the chassis cab trucks on the manufacturer’s site, or in press photos, without an accessory of some kind on the back, I can only think of one practical use; drift truck.
How about we all get together and start a GoFundMe to purchase one of the new F-750s (with either the diesel or the V10 gasoline, because America) and just do drifts and donuts all day. We could travel the country letting Ford Truck Enthusiast members have a shot behind the wheel. Sounds like fun to me!
The only downside is that you’re probably going to have to have a CDL to drive it.
What do you think of the new F-750? How would you, or your business, spec it out? Let us know in the forums!
