1961 Ford F-100 Crams a Mustang 4.6L V8 Underhood
There are all sorts of restoration projects with some aiming to put a car or truck back to factory-new complete with grease pen markings and stickers. Others want a car or truck that they can drive around on the weekend that won’t leave them stranded. Some want a mix of the two with a ride that looks like it did when it was new, but wraps in some modern components as well.
This 1961 Ford F-100 pickup is undoubtedly the latter type of restoration. The body looks brand new, but one glance at the truck and you can see its not stock. If the wheels and the hood with the raised cowl don’t tip you off, the lowered suspension and cobra on the fender should. Under that black cowl-induction hood lives a 4.6-liter V8 crate engine that makes 315 horsepower and 325 pound-foot of torque.
