Custom 1951 Ford F2 - Barrett Jackson Las Vegas 2018
Saturday September 29th, Barrett Jackson Auction - Lot#689
This ground-up custom-built Ford F2 was recently completed, featuring a 700hp supercharged Ford Racing crate engine and a custom-built chassis. The truck is painted black with a copper pearl. The entire chassis is powder-coated in Candy Copper, while control arms, rear axle, brake lines and other underbody components are powder-coated gloss black. The same Candy Copper and black color theme is continued throughout the entire build.
The custom TCI Engineering chassis was built to handle the horsepower and provide the best available steering and braking. The chassis features a front ISF suspension built by TCI engineering with 2" drop spindles, along with a power rack & pinion. The rear suspension is a 3-link, torque-link with a Currie Racing sheet metal rear housing and full-floating rear axle. The 13" Wilwood drilled and slotted rotors have been paired with Wilwood 6-piston calipers and for maximum stopping power.
This truck is powered by a brand-new 5.0-liter Ford Racing Aluminator crate engine with a VMP Stage II supercharger kit, mated to a Performance Automatic 4R70W 4-speed automatic transmission. Keeping the power to the ground, is a set of Pirelli tires mounted on a set of 20" Mobsteel steelie wheels. The rear differential is a 3.50 Currie Racing 35-spline TrueTrac. The exhaust is complete with a set of 40 series Flowmaster mufflers featuring 3" black ceramic-coated pipes from front to back coming together at a set of quad tips.
The entire interior has been coated by two layers of sound and heat proofing. The upholstery features black seats with copper stitching and a single-piece headliner. The heat and air conditioning controls are custom-mounted into the dash. The Ididit tilt steering column and the black leather wheel are color-matched to the rest of the truck. The stereo is a factory-looking deck with USB input for MP3 or phone connection, and there has been an auxiliary USB port added to the dash. The stereo is powered by a 500-watt Rockford Fosgate amplifier, that's running a set of four Infinity Reference speakers.
The bed of the truck features new oak boards with a dark stain. The strips and fuel filler-cap have been powder-coated in Candy Copper to match the truck accents. The headlights, blinkers and brake lights have all been upgraded to LED.
