Rodney Melton’s Roadrunner-Swapped 1971 Ford F100
Rodney Melton always had Mustangs; that is, until this 1971 Ford F100 entered his life. When asked why he bought the truck, Rodney says, “I really just wanted something different.”
Rodney bought the F100 out of Arizona with a 351 Cleveland and a T5 transmission. It ran okay, but Rodney wanted to update the truck’s suspension, so he sent it to Gateway Classic Mustang. At the time he sent the truck to Gateway, he didn’t plan on an engine swap, but the guys from Gateway suggested the time do a Coyote swap was now. Since the plan was to remove the Cleveland, anyway, Rodney agreed and a Coyote swap was set in motion.
Technically, since Rodney found a 2013 Boss 302 engine, it’s a Roadrunner swap.
