This Yellow Pro Street 1966 Ford F-100 is the Opposite of Subtle

In the truck world, you have examples that run the gauntlet from mild to wild.  Some are subtle and fly under the radar with boring, earthy colors and quiet exhausts, while others choose a less subtle approach. Then there are those, like this 1966 F-100 that are so in-your-face that you can’t help but notice them.

Introverts needn’t apply when you’re talking about a truck that is painted in a blazing yellow and sports massive rear tires sitting under a tubbed bed. And if that isn’t enough show for you, this truck also has a motorized front clip that tilts forward at the flip of a switch.

The fuel cell and rear-mounted battery scream race, as does the tweed interior with Simpson racing seat belts and Autometer gauges. It’s total sensory-overload everywhere you look. Except, well, under the hood. A 302 rests under the custom hood, and while modifications are unknown, it seems like a bit of a letdown when you take the rest of the truck into context. Granted, it could be a 500+ horsepower beast, we just don’t know.

Even if the powerplant isn’t quite up to the extreme levels of the rest of the truck, this ’66 is still a capable attention getter and streetable beast. It’s equally at home on the strip or at your local car show, and with those looks, it’s also impossible to ignore.
