This 1960 Ford F-100 SEMA Build Will Make You Say: What Budget?

By -


When it comes to SEMA builds, budgets are a four letter word. Money is no object as builders and manufacturers of aftermarket parts are simply out to construct the baddest trucks on the planet.  There’s only one goal – to get as many eyeballs as possible on their respective booths, and to hopefully convert gawkers into future customers. Budget, who?


A 2011 SEMA veteran, this wild 1960 F-100 build fits the bill of a big budget, no holds-barred build. It cost an astounding $250,000 to put together, and the result was definitely a head-turner. The first thing you’ll undoubtedly notice is the blazing turquoise paint, accented by white trim. The custom wheels are bound to be a bit controversial, but you have to at least appreciate the fact that they went with a steelie look instead of massive chrome or billet wheels.


The truck sits ultra-low on those massive steelies thanks to an Aristech air-ride setup and Heidts IFS front and 4-link rear suspension. Huge Wilwood disc brakes sit on all four corners (14″ front and 12″ rear). Originally built with a twin turbo Y-block, the ’60 now features a blown Coyote under the hood equipped with stage 3 comp cams and backed up by a 4R70 transmission.


The interior is just as detail-oriented as the rest of the truck, with custom touches everywhere. Much of the stereo equipment has been located in the roof, and the sub box has been cut into the bed. Almost everything on the inside is unique to this truck – the door panels, headliner, kick panels, and dash are all custom made.

There is so much going on with this old Ford, that it seems like every time you look you’ll see something that you didn’t notice the first time around. That’s the level of detail you expect to see in a SEMA build, and this ’60 certainly lives up to the pedigree. If that’s your sort of thing and you have the means, bidding is live here!
