Because trucks can be hot rods, too.
Sometimes a stock Ford F-150 pickup truck isn’t good enough. Sure, there’s the formidable Raptor, but not everyone seeks its extreme off-road appeal. Fortunately, alternatives exist, but they don’t come directly from Ford. Instead, a few Ford dealerships have taken it upon themselves to offer customized F-150 hot rods for customers. Recently there was the 650-hp F-150 Lightning from a dealership in Georgia, and now there’s this: the F-150 Outlaw WJ750, courtesy of Wyatt Johnson Ford of Nashville, Tennessee.
As the name suggests, the truck has 750 hp on tap thanks to a Shelby supercharger bolted to its 5.0-liter V8. In fact, the modifications are done by Shelby American, but it was this dealership that initiated the project. Available in Race Red, Shadow Black, Oxford White and Lightning Blue, buyers will appreciate a supercharger housing and intake manifold powder coated in the same blue used by the Ford Racing team. Other features include a billet throttle body, high-performance fuel system and even a Borla exhaust. Because it’s more of a hot rod than off-roader, its suspension has been lowered for improved handling, and it rides on a set of 22-inch wheels wearing performance rubber.
