Race Ready F-150 Pre-Runner for Sale with a Crazy Low Price
F-150 has a built big block V8, custom body work and an elaborate suspension setup.
We were recently checking out the trucks available for sale on the Streetside Classics website when came stumbled across this incredible 1995 Ford F-150 pre-runner. Every aspect of this truck has been upgraded for high performance fun in any off-road setting, but this isn’t an F-Series pickup that you are going to drive on the street without at least a few key changes.
Build to Race
While this truck began its life as a 1995 Ford F-150, still wearing the VIN tag on the dash to prove it, there aren’t many components that were included on any factory-built F-Series pickup.
While the cab, doors, grille and tailgate are factory F-150 parts, Hanneman front and back fiberglass fenders and a Glassworks fiberglass hood provide the pre-runner shape, with help from some tubular bumpers and the huge tires. The original frame is still in use, but it has been modified to work with the elaborate suspension setup featuring I-beams and radius arms from Camberg Engineering along with Sway-A-Way coilovers in the front along with Deaver long-travel lift springs and Sway-A-Way reservoir shocks in the rear.
Both the bed and the underhood areas have been completely stripped out, with custom tubular chassis reinforcements filling both of those areas. Also up front, there is a high performance, 460-cubic inch V8 that sends its power through a built C6 transmission and a Currie 9-inch rear differential.
This is a rear-drive truck, so it is designed for crossing the desert at high speeds, not digging through deep mud, although it would probably do better in mud than your average rear-wheel-drive F-150.
While some people drive pre-runner trucks on the street, this F-150 lacks some key features for road use.
Most notably, it does not have a windshield, it doesn’t have an exhaust system south of the headers and that big block engine likely wouldn’t pass any emission tests in the United States. There is no heater or air condition system, but the builder did include a modern stereo system with a CD player, along with a Lowrance Baja GPS unit. There is also room for passengers, with race seats in each of the normal front positions and another in the rear seating area, nestled up between the front seats a bit.
The original dash board is still in place, as are the factory door panels, but the dash has been customized with a ton of switches and unique gauges.
Really, if you live in a state like Michigan, devoid of any sort of annual emission testing or inspection of any kind, the only thing stopping you from driving this badass F-150 on the street is a windshield and a cheap muffler.
Best of all, with a list price of $28,995, the suspension and chassis upgrades alone may have cost as much as the asking price. This F-150 is being sold for a fraction of the build price, so whoever buys it is driving away with an awesome truck and a great deal.
