This 1987 Ford F-350 has the bright blue dominating style that might have you yelling, “Hey big foot!”
But while the stature is impressive, you’ll also just appreciate the features and power that make this 4×4 desirable for more than just its monster size.
The metallic blue is an instant attention-grabber. It’s a clean application where the radiant style shows off the well-creased body lines that make this generation F-series such an imposing truck. Of course, the huge lift, billet grille, carb running lights, and awesome 20-inch white wheels make this quite aggressive, too. It’s such a cool total package that we’re even told it spent some time as a promotional tool for a dealership. So we bet you’re thinking about how memorable this one will be no matter if it’s in your driveway or in front of your business. Everything about this wants to be bigger. That’s why you have the beefy front bumpers, wide fender flares, and double-hoop Baja bed bar with five KC lights. But these additions also are quite functional. In fact, a pickup with a fully lined long bed, and a proper trailer hitch can be quite handy.
The side step plates are a nice addition to let you hop up into the truck. There are some nice factory-style pieces like the bench seat with a fold-down armrest, sliding rear glass, and floor shift for the 4×4 transfer case. There are also some nice additions, like the A-pillar readouts, AM/FM stereo with USB and Bluetooth, subwoofer speaker system, tinted windows, and a durable garage-style floor covering. There are even provisions for R134a air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.
Under the hood is an awesomely upgraded powerhouse. It’s a 408 cubic-inch stroker motor by the masters at BluePrint. It’s said to be rated at 425hp and 490 lb.ft. or torque. There’s even a FAST electronic fuel injection system to give you the best consistency to go with the big power. There are even good supporting components like a newer dual exhaust, upgraded pulleys, an MSD ignition, and an aluminum radiator with electric fans. The off-road attitude is more than just glamour muscles. The suspension includes dual Fox shocks in the front, singles in the rear, and rear beefy radius trailing arms. We’re also told there are AAE custom driveshafts, 35 spline chromoly axles in front, and a 14-bolt Yukon Dura Grip locker in the rear with 5.13 gears. The transmission is even a Hughes Racing C6 three-speed automatic with a 2200 stall and separate trans cooler. This truck may have a monster attitude, but you still can drive it on the streets. After all, it’s not on tractor tires, but instead capable Mickey Thompson Baja Claw rubber. And while we doubt this is going to be your new freeway cruiser, it has a good feeling on the road that comes from a quality build. Plus, with power steering and four-wheel disc brakes, you’ll easily drive to all the events you can handle on a weekend.
