Big window is more desireable, in my opinion, and much more rare.

Nice truck. But not for me. But some people apparently want it bad. 58K right now (and reserve not met). But I'm like some of the others. Can't stop staring at that fender.

That's not a truck, you couldn't even haul your groceries in the back of that. I don't think you would get to far on 16 gallons of gas either.

I'm a Ford in a Ford guy! You want big valve covers? How about some big Boss 9 valve covers? Or what about a 427 SOHC?

Lots of fine craftsmanship but not something that I would build (or pay $78,300 to buy). I really like the hood hinges though...anybody take note of them? It seems like someone should be building a good replacement rear hinge for these trucks, I am so over the front flip.

I'm also not a fan of the big back window!
It's a great truck regardless of the powerplant. I wouldn't know what to do with 659 HP but would love to see it parked in my driveway just the same!

If they just "had" to have a hemi, Ford built a hemi. It is a much rarer engine and would have made the truck a lot more desirable in my opinion. Tom

I would agree with truckrod. THAT TRUCK IS UGLY..... he took IMHO one of the great Ford cabs and modified too much. why did they remove the lip over the top of the winshield? that is why I love the 56 cab so much. As for the Hemi, I never have owned one, couldn't afford one, and have heard nothing but what a pain the the rear they are to keep running. I give that truck Four thumbs down.

Altho well done; the combination of pancaked hood, No running boards, shaved brow, and tucked Gravelpanel just don't blend to my preference. To each there own tho.

That's what it is, I couldn't put my finger on it before, but that's why I don't like it. You're right, why?

there are just SO many things about this truck that are weird..

56 cab, without the brow, squared back edge of the cab
pancaked the hood, too much I think..

minimized the lower roll pan..
lengthened the body, extended the back of the front fenders, but then left the rear fenders normal..
the bed is a waste.. (is this a truck?)
