In 1969 there was the 302 Windsor V8 for the Ford F-series, which provided 205 hp and 408 Nm. Those were respectable numbers for the time, although of course a comparison of the 4,9-liter engine with the much more modern one 6,2 liter Boss V8 limps heavily. Nevertheless, we have to approach this comparison, because after all, the engine is now exactly under the hood of this Ford F-100 Ranger pickup in the two-tone (green and cream) Body dress. The engine comes from one 2014er Ford F-250 and was even painted with one in body color Billet engine cover and pretty greens Valve covers fitted. Tuned by Torq'd performance there was also a specially made one for improved acoustics Sports exhaust system and one at that BeCool cooler and two electric Fan. The output thus adds up 385 PS and 549 Nm at 4.500 revolutions per minute.

The power is transmitted by means of Six-speed automatic on the rear axle, but of course you can too all wheel drive be switched on. Incidentally, the tuner relies on that for the transmission Ford 6R, which is based on the ZF 6HP26 and is built under license by Ford Motor Company (FoMoCo).
In conjunction with a Dual-range transfer case and 2008s Ford Super Duty axles and Mag-Hytec differential covers the drive train is prepared for all eventualities. And then there is the wheelset.

Incidentally, there is a new one hidden behind the mighty off-road rounds Disc brake system and also on one Power Steering must the Restomod do not give up.

And of course it is Cabin completely renovated. Here you can see one that is painted in the same color as the car and covered with leather in the upper part dashboard with a few hidden new ones Features (Retro sound system etc.) and there was TMI seats and door panels. But our personal highlight is next to the new one Leather seats definitely the red backlit Dakota Belt speedometer with digital kilometer display As well as the Aluminum sports steering wheel with leather wreath.
