The Custom Ford Mustang GT-100 Truck is a classic truck with a modern pony chassis

Trucks and trucks are ingrained in the DNA of American culture, but what if you could combine them into one vehicle? The answer to this question could be the depicted Ford Mustang Truck GT-100, representing a unique mixture of a heavily modified F100 body with modern underpinnings and a V8 from Fifth generation Mustang GT.

It all started by removing the bodywork from a donor 2007 Ford Mustang GT in preparation for this unconventional marriage. The next step was to mount the body of a rusty 1955 Ford F100 directly onto the Mustang chassis, although this project was not destined to be reverse restomod the traditional way.

The only parts that appear to be carried over from the original F100 truck are the greenhouse, doors, roof, and bed frame, as everything else has been modified to resemble the Mustang. The highlight is the radiator grille and headlights that come straight from the 2007 Mustang GT and show the true nature of this build. A prominent splitter, a bulging hood, wide fender extensions and an aerodynamic windshield cover give the F100 more of a sportiness that would undoubtedly look better with a chopped roof. Other interesting details include side intake, its own bed and a fixed rear wing.

Unlike most DIY projects that use fiberglass for bodykits and custom panels, the exterior of the Mustang truck is made entirely of metal. As a final touch, the unique pickup was painted in a classic blue shade with white stripes combined with dark alloy wheels.

Step into the cab of the truck and you’ll notice that the dashboard, steering wheel, instrument panel and front seats are carried over from the pony car. More importantly, the ladder frame of the original Ford F100 gave way to the much more modern architecture of the 2007 Ford Mustang GT. This change brings significant improvements in handling, handling and performance, effectively transforming the classic truck into a sports car. Likewise, the fifth-generation Mustang GT’s 4.6-liter V8 engine produces 300 hp (224 kW / 304 PS), beating the ancient Y-block V8 used in the third-generation F-Series trucks.

It’s unclear if the unique Ford Mustang Truck GT-100 is available for sale, but the owner proudly showed off his build on a Facebook group called Original 306 Truck Club. Commenters seem divided on its looks, but all agree that this truck is a head, especially when you hear the roaring V8.
