How to make an old Ford F-100 fly

Christopher Polvoorde is a young driver in the Lucas Oil Off-Road racing series. The 19-year-old runs in the Pro-Lite class. He won Rookie of the Year in 2017, has claimed 3rd place overall in 2018, and has just completed a perfect season in the Lucas Oil Midwest Short Course League. That means eight races and eight wins.

But forget all of that for a moment… this future Baja champion has a sweet rig at home. Polvoorde has a fully tricked out 1967 Ford F-100.

You can see it in the video above. If you’re not into some of the vlog aspects of the clip, feel free to jump around. And you’ll land on plenty of shots of this oh-so-rad machine. It’s boasting a 530-horsepower engine and a hilarious amount of travel. The I Beams are still there, but the rest of the running gear has seen a major makeover. Up front, the truck has 24-inches of wheel travel. Out back? How does 30 inches sound?

This thing is a wicked desert toy, and Polvoorde knows how to make the most of it.

    Wonder how much it costs compared to a brand-new F150 Raptor. Because personally I’d much prefer (even a much milder version of) this F100…

      With the amount of work and parts in this truck, I’d wager it’s pretty close…

    I’ve seen a horsefly.
    I’ve seen a dragonfly.
    I’ve seen a housefly.
    I’ve seen a peanut stand
    And heard a rubber band.
    I’ve seen a needle that winked it’s eye.
    But I’ll have seen about everything when I see a F100 fly.
