Money No Object: A 1952 Ford F5 Car Hauler With A Supercharged V-10 For Power!


Money No Object: A 1952 Ford F5 Car Hauler With A Supercharged V-10 For Power!

This is pure indulgence. If you are in a position where you need a car hauler in your life to get your toys moved around, you’re already doing pretty well. You don’t need a monster stacker or anything like that, just a good truck will do to move your race car or show car from place to place. You could go brand new, sure, but does that really work for you? Does a 2018 Super Duty with every last option really fit your style? Chances are, not really…it’s a good rig, of course, but it’s just another new work truck. Go to shows and you’ll see tons of them with trailers attached. Do you remember that scene from the 2000 remake of Gone in 60 Seconds, when Memphis Raines is at the Ferrari showroom and complains that he has seen way too many of the latest models in town? Just look at this 1952 Ford F5…you wouldn’t be self-indulgent…you would be a connoisseur.

You’d also be doing just fine on the work end of the deal. Instead of diesel power, you’ve got a Kenne Bell-supercharged 6.8L Ford Triton V-10 under the hood hooked to an automatic. Unorthodox for sure, but it’ll get the job done. Airport shuttles, ambulances and RVs all use the V-10 to get work done, so handling your little track toy shouldn’t be an issue. You’ve got air ride suspension, heated leather seats, power accessories, Vintage Air and three extra beds, two flat and one dump box bed, just in case you need to do anything else besides haul around the car.

Just look at the thing. Why would you buy a new truck?
