Bagged 1967 Ford F100 Pays Tribute to Owner’s Deceased Wife

May 28th, 2022

Like a big old pig with a belly that drags the ground, this pickup gets about as low as you can go. What started out as a cab-only project (with a straight six) has morphed into this incredible cruiser that we are blessed to witness today. Lou’s wife (also a 1967 model) has recently passed away so, excuse him for being a bit emotional. He built this cruiser as a rolling tribute to her.

The project began the right way; with a Roadster Shop rolling chassis (including Baer brakes). Lou added AccuAir air ride on all four corners. This feature really sets this truck apart from the crowd. After that came a set of 20-inch Detroit Steel wheels (9-inch front and 11-inch rear). All this love and care yields an impeccable stance with plenty of attitude.

Under the hood is a stock 5.0-liter Coyote motor mated to a 6R80 automatic transmission. Mods are limited to a custom cold air intake system that feeds from the grille area. The rear end is a 9-inch Ford. This truck sounds nice and runs slick as a whistle.

Key exterior features include an awesome man-made patina, a “false-bottom” bed and a set of killer custom exhaust outlet openings.

Nice ride Lou. Bet the Missus would have loved it. I know we do.
