Powerstroke ’74 Ford F-350 Dually Is the Perfect Restomod
Amazing oil burning Ford F-350 went from cab to modern stunner thanks to the skilled hands of one talented man.
These days, old Ford trucks are incredibly popular among the restomod crowd. And why not? Vintage Fords look pretty much amazing with a nice paint job, the right stance, and a solid set of rolling stock. Throw a modern powertrain/suspension at them, and you’ve got something that drives essentially like a new pickup. Albeit, with infinitely more style. But few restomods match up to this amazing 1974 Ford F-350 we spied over on Instagram.
If you didn’t know any better, you’d think that this classic Ford F-350 was mostly original, judging by appearances only. But you see, the owner, Steve Burris, has a bit of an affinity for modernizing vintage pickups. And this one is far, far from stock outside of the mostly normal-looking exterior. Which we certainly appreciate, because messing with the lines of a Dentside is akin to blasphemy in our book.
The powertrain, on the other hand, is fair game. Well, unless some yahoo decides to shoehorn a Chevy powerplant in there. In this case, that’s not what happened, thankfully. Burris instead turned to a modern Ford engine and sourced a 6.7-liter Powerstroke diesel for his Ford F-350 build. He could have simply gone with a Cummins oil burner too, but thankfully that didn’t happen.
Even more impressive, this vintage Ford F-350 started out as little more than a cab. Now, the finished product is a true testament to the incredible skills of one Mr. Burris. So be sure and give him a follow to check out not only this amazing build, but all of the cool Ford trucks that roll out of his shop!
