There was a time a few years back when someone building a pro touring pickup truck was kind of a fun anomaly. The world of hardcore pro touring cars was dominated by traditional machines like Camaros, Mustangs, and other more traditionally known performance vehicles. Fast forward to today and the idea of a hardcore handling truck isn’t just normal, it’s surging in popularity by the month. The biggest difference between then and now, though, is the fact that you can build a truck that will hang with exotic sports cars and still have a rig you can drive down the street. Why? Companies like QA1 have been working to refine and develop suspension components that deliver in competition and also deliver the kind of ride quality that allows you to love your car or truck as a driver, to boot.
We love the dentside and bumpside Ford trucks of the 1970s and the rest of the world does as well, apparently. This second wave of pickup truck love follows on the tails of the explosive growth of 1978-1987 GM squarebody trucks that have dominated the scene for years.
This truck is great because it is 100% about form and function. The factory style paint job and trim look mint. The stance is perfect, and the fit and finish are of amazingly high quality as well. From the wheels an tires to the innovative components that underpin the truck and make it fun to drive, we’re loving everything that this Ford represents. Enjoy this look at New Blue.
