Coyote V8 Powered Ford F-100 Has Twin Turbos Under the Hood
Vintage truck with the heart of a modern Mustang, we bet it sounds incredible with that 5.0 wailing away under the hood
If the internet is good for anything, it’s showing off random snippets of life. Sometimes (maybe too often), we get too much information. But every now and again, we just get something so strange or so cryptic, that we just need to know more.
That’s what we have here in this all-too-brief video of a ’60s-era Ford F100 rocking a Mustang’s Coyote V8 under the hood. Thanks to the title of this video, we know that the truck was at Palm Beach International Raceway for the annual Truck Jam show on August 18th. Other than that, we can only guess.
There’s no info on the video. And other than a Migos song blaring in the background, there’s no commentary. But what we do know is this: The Coyote V8 looks positively tiny inside the truck’s massive engine bay. With the inner fenders cut away, we can see what looks like a new independent front suspension to replace the ancient “Twin I-Beam” setup. From what little we can see of the outside, it looks to be a lowered ’64 or ’65 F-100. The sun-baked could be original, but the “Hutch’s Welding” signs painted on the doors look a lot newer.
Indeed, a quick Google search finds a Hutch’s Welding in West Palm Beach. And as you might expect, they make some pretty cool automotive-themed art. Unfortunately, there’s isn’t much about the sweet F-100, so we’re left to draw our own conclusions.
Still, it’s a very well-done looking restomod, and we bet it sounds incredible with that modern Coyote wailing away under the hood. If you’re in South Florida anytime soon, keep your eyes peeled for this too-cool custom.
