Classic Car Overview
You Are Looking At A 1961 For F100 Truck Designed by an aircraft engineer in 1983, this truck is an amazing piece of lasting engineering. The power plant is a Thunderbird E-code 312ci Y-block that was bored .030 over to 318ci, then fitted with forged TRW pistons creating 8.5:1 compression, forged crank and rods, Schneider camshaft, and ported and bench-flowed heads. Air and fuel are delivered through a Carter 750 cfm carburetor and a Garrett T3 turbocharger with an Edelbrock Vara-jection water-injection system keeping everything cool internally. Ignition is provided by an MSD controller with separate MSD manual boost retarder. The exhaust is wrapped to and from the turbo to keep the engine bay cool and sent out the side through a Flowmaster muffler. Mated to the engine is a 15-speed transmission consisting of 12 forward gears and 3 reverse. It starts out with a 4-speed top loader synchromesh manual transmission mated to a divorced auxiliary 3-speed transmission linked to a 9 limited-slip differential. For longevity, the engine oil capacity was increased and dual remote oil filters were added, along with a 4-core radiator, low oil pressure warning system, and a full array of gauges, including boost and exhaust temperatures. Stopping power is provided by a disc brake conversion in the front and adjustable proportioning valve. The exterior features a well-earned patina that has been wet-sanded and polished. Its been updated with period-correct American Racing Wheels with new tires, and the factory Ford Steelie wheels with hubcaps are included. The only hint of the power this truck has are the dual aluminum hood scoops and larger side-exiting exhaust. The interior has been updated with a custom bench seat and headliner. The original build documents and service records are included, and all hoses, belts, fluids and filters have been recently serviced.
