1970s Ford F100 “Max Aero” Looks Like a Widebody NASCAR Restomod

Right now, the 1956 Ford F100 is hotter than ever, but it’s only a matter of time before the later generations get the same attention. Your dad’s or your grandpa’s old truck could then become the target of customization, and in the year 2030, that might include a full racing makeover.

We’re already seeing a lot of old trucks being transformed into racing vehicles. For example, the 2021 SEMA show had that amazing C10 with a Tesla swap and 3D printed widebody, as well as the 1965 Chevy six-wheeler by DeBerti.

This rendering falls nicely into that category but targets a vintage truck that we rarely see going extreme. It’s the Ford F100, though pinpointing the exact model is impossible when there’s nothing left except the headlight placement. The general styling started in 1961 with the 4th-gen and stayed largely the same until 1986, though somewhere in the middle- they switched to square lights.

My guess would be that it’s a 5th or 6th-gen, since the hood doesn’t have the little vents underneath, and the doors are flat. But either way, you’re talking about basic construction, no power steering, and your average 3-on-the-tree gearbox, the opposite of a racing vehicle.

3D artist altered_intent is responsible for this digital build, which somewhat resembles the crisp lines of one of Yasid‘s racing trucks. We’re also strongly reminded of the 2022 Nascar series, where they’re beginning to use 14-inch wide tires and center-locking wheels. But unlike Yasid, this artist has built quite a few project cars that match this level of craziness.

To make the boxy Ford F100 from 50 years ago into a racing vehicle, Mr. Altered (Dom Host is his real name) used a full custom body kit. This starts right at the front with a splitter low enough to plow snow and connects to the widebody front fenders. These wrap around giant racing tires and a side-exit exhaust system.

Carbon fiber then makes its appearance as flat pieces which cover the hood, roof and also create side skirts. Like most go-fast retro trucks, this F100 appears to have a custom tubular frame replacing the chassis. An exoskeleton of parts then changes the look of the bed, ranging from a large wing to a diffuser and some “after burned” style taillights which appear to be stolen from the Ford Fairlane.
