Question f350 Centurion Conversion

Looking at buying an F350 with an 8 passenger Centurion Conversion. Can anyone tell me the details about these conversions?

Welcome to FTE Joel. To the best of my knowledge Centurion has never done a Superduty, so I'll move this to a more appropriate forum.

Whats year you want ?

Since no one seemed to read your question (postmaster what for sale Sale) and Vijay (yes they did make one in 2000 + but not as wild)

They are rare in any year . But the centurion coversion could be had in Half and 1 ton . Mostly .2x4 4x4 and duelly There are allot of regular trucks F150-350 with special stickers ETC . The newer right before they sold out where just stock configurations (that I saw) With different seats and paint.

But in the mid 90's
The 1 ton could be crew , crew stretched in middle doors. crew with ex cab on back ,(could fit 9 fit 2 were small) or the 6 door. 460 and a fuelly are the norm .
They also made Bronco type with 4 doors (9 passenger) .There is a fuelly for sale locally right now.

Good luck on search

Sure thing.

Centurion was a company that used to be partnered with Ford and did custom conversions on their trucks, as well as accessory packages. The company has recently been bought out by another customization company called Southern Comfort.

Centurion did conversions to all kinds of Ford trucks, ranging anywhere from stretching a regular cab F150 into a crew cab (like my truck, see sig link) to adding another set of doors onto a Bronco to make a Suburban type vehicle:


Centurion would buy the trucks directly from Ford, literally cut the frame and cab, and add in segments of truck. Here are pictures of the cuts on my truck from when they converted it from single cab to crew cab:

They also added accessory packages to some trucks, which included things like wood grain accents and fancy electronics (which was usually an old TUBE television back in the mid 90s). The conversions are very professional and well done, and it comes at high price. The Centurion conversion on my truck was $8500 on top of the MSRP of the truck, and that was over 10 years ago!

Not sure if that's the kind of response you were looking for... Lemme know if you got any more questions. Good luck buddy.

Wow, I thought Alton (http://main.altonco.com/listman/listings/) was the best in stretching business.
pictures please...

I can't see why they'd go to the trouble of stretching the cab themselves when they could have used a cab from a 1 ton crew and just stretched the frame. It's really cool how stock they made it look though, you'd never know it was a stretched cab!

It is curious why they didn't use the F350 cab... Or the F250 for that matter (post 95ish when the F250 crew started). But I do assure you that my cab is a custom job

Oh I believe you bro, I looked at the photos in the link you posted above. Like I said, I'm amazed they stretched it and made it look factory, it's incredible work!

My old autobody instructor actually built one of these himself and made it look pretty good. I think he started with a f250 and a wrecked bronco. made it look really good. He called it a " Mountainer" and had 33's and a full decal kit too.

Did the company that bought Centurion make any 6 doors at all? Their site does not have any conversions!

No, Southern Comfort mainly just does vanity packages now, ie, custom paint jobs, flashy wheels, big lift kits, big sound systems, etc etc. There isn't much reason for them to stretch trucks anymore since most trucks can now come stretched from the factory
