Of Ford’s customized trucks, two feature the name of famous Ford racers.
Of all the OEMs making appearances at the 2014 SEMA show, Ford owns arguably the most significant group of vehicles, thanks to its new 2015 F-150 and Mustang. While you can look for our Mustang coverage soon, we’ve managed to sneak out and get snaps of some of a few of the F-150s on display at the company’s sprawling, 20,000-square-foot display (look for even more aftermarket F-150 goodness in the coming days).
Of Ford’s customized trucks, two feature the name of famous Blue Oval racers, with both Formula Drift driver Vaughn Gittin, Jr. and Global Rallycross Championship driver Brian Deegan lending their unique tastes to the F-Series.
In Gittin, Jr.’s case, his history as a drifter has inspired the design of the F-150 shown above. Riding on a suspension with components from Kibbetech King and Air Lift, this F-150 enjoys 12 inches of travel while its five passengers are kept in place by Recaro seats in the cabin. Aside from those mechanical changes, eye-catching details include the lime-green wheels, which contrast quite nicely with the silver paint. Gitten said he wanted a truck with “on- and off-road capabilities, as well as drifting and jumping capabilities,” and overall, this is a pretty handsome job.
If Gittin’s F-150 is somewhat restrained, the F-150 Deegan 38 is a far more outgoing, thanks not only to its wild paint job, but to its more comprehensive set of mechanical upgrades that make it arguably a larger showcase. Its 3.5-litre EcoBoost V6 now produces over 600 horsepower thanks to upgrades from BorgWarner, Full-Race Motorsports and ProEFI. The suspension bits and pieces come from Fox Racing, while Mickey Thompson has provided the monstrous, 37-inch tires.
Next up, we have the widebody TSDesigns F-150. The custom, all-metal build was designed by Octavio “Topo” Villafana and team, who also did the work on the Ford Mustang that starred in last summer’s Need For Speed movie. On top of the aesthetic changes, a Vortech supercharger, Gibson exhaust, Belltech lowering kit and Forgiato 24-inch wheels have been fitted the gray, black and yellow F-Series.
