2008 Ford F-250 Monster Truck Features Shelby GT500 Powerplant

Quite a few Ford Super Duty pickups have been transformed into monster trucks over the years, for obvious reasons. These big rigs make fantastic, well, big(ger) rigs, and can easily be modified to tower over virtually everything and crush lesser vehicles with ease. That certainly seems to be the case with this 2008 Ford F-250 monster truck up for sale at Gateway Classic Cars, which also happens to be powered by a very cool transplanted engine.

That powerplant is Ford’s 5.4L Modular V8 pulled from a Ford Mustang Shelby GT500, which is topped off with a roots-style Eaton M122H supercharger and fitted with Ford Performance’s “Power Pack” and a custom tune. That makes it good for over 600 horsepower, which flows through a two-speed transmission to either the rear or all four wheels.

Those wheels (and the 54-inch tires wrapped around it) are quite large because this is a Ford F-250 monster truck, after all. In fact, the body is bolted to a custom tube chassis, with goodies including five-ton Rockwell axles, nitrogen-charged adjustable shocks, and Wilwood brakes at all four corners. The resulting beast, dubbed “Overtime,” measures in at over 9 feet tall and over 10 feet wide.

Despite its custom underpinnings, this Super Duty still offers up plenty of amenities thanks to its stock interior. That includes things like power steering, a tilt steering wheel, air conditioning, a rear backup camera, CD player, and room for five. It may not necessarily be that easy to park, of course, but then again, who is going to challenge it for that last open spot?

While it would obviously be more at home inside a stadium showing off, this F-250 would also make one heck of a cool show rig. Because who doesn’t get all giddy when they see a monster truck in the flesh, no matter how old we might be?

    $78,000? It could never be built for that so this is a good deal for somebody.
