Vintage style on the outside, custom comfort on the inside, and the most monstrous crate V8 ever under the hood. Oh yes, this 1977 Ford F-100 Restomod is awesome. So while the fuel-injected Godzilla motor grabs your attention in the headlines, it's the way they made the full package detail-oriented that makes this power pickup so irresistible.
Sure the slammed stance and 20-inch Billet Specialties alloys instantly announce this is a street machine. But we also love how this makes sure .....
it gives a proper classic Ford impression. The sunset-style graphics dominate both sides. This mimics the Free Wheelin' package offered by Ford back in the day, but what you see now is actually a recent addition. And that's sitting on top of a more recent respray. So you have a smooth and glossy style to the retro-cool presentation. Plus, as you look through the full package, you're going to spot plenty of attention to the fundamentals. Clean glass, pliable weather-stripping, a fresh-looking grille, and mirror-like bumpers are all part of this clean and stylish presentation. And while you're unlikely to be doing too many lumber runs with this restomod, the full liner paint bed and thick rubber mat have the right classic truck attitude.
The interior continues the custom attitude that also respects the truck's history. For example, the seats could be considered a bench setup, but this modern TMI unit is a fresh addition that has a sports car level of individual bolstering and the kind of trim you'd expect on an exotic car. Plush carpeting, nice door panels, and a smooth dash make this an inviting atmosphere. There are well-integrated upgrades like a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner with Bluetooth, power windows, and provisions for air conditioning (it likely has a slow leak.) And details like the sports steering wheel and full gauge package are the kind of upgrades that let you know this truck is something special.
Under the hood is one of Ford's newest and meanest powerhouses. It's the 7.3-liter fuel-injected V8 that was called Godzilla for a very good reason. This displacement is larger than any other gas or diesel powerhouse in the current Super Duty lineup. We like how this setup does a good job of balancing the everyday ease of a modern motor and Godzilla-like power when you want to lean into it. Part of this setup is also because there's smart packaging to handle the power. It starts with a stout rebuilt 4R70W four-speed automatic overdrive transmission with a US Shift control module, and this feeds into a strong Dana40 rear end. The front suspension is now a Mustang II-style setup with tubular control arms and adjustable coilovers. The rear is a parallel four-link with Panhard bar and adjustable coilovers. Add in power seeing, power brakes, front discs, and grippy ZR-rated tires, and you just know this is serious power pickup fun.
This is the fresh build that mixes bold style, serious brawn, and real cruiser fun. You know this Free Wheelin' Godzilla belongs in your garage. Call today!!!
