There have certainly been some interesting special edition versions of the Ford F-150 produced throughout that model’s illustrious history, by both The Blue Oval itself and various aftermarket companies. One of those is the 2014 Ford F-150 Tonka Edition, of which just 500 were produced in total. Paying homage to the bright yellow toys many of us grew up playing with, the 2014 Ford F-150 Tonka Edition is a rare sight today, which makes this particular example – currently up for grabs at Bring a Trailer – something extra special.
There’s certainly no mistaking the F-150 Tonka Edition for anything other than what it is, thanks to the truck’s bright yellow paint, chrome trim, dual-intake hood, custom cladding, large fender flares, and Tonka badging. This particular example has around 77k original miles and remains in very nice condition, almost as good as the day it was finished by Tuscany Motor Company of Elkhart, Indiana, which is the aftermarket outfit responsible for these cool conversions.
This F-150 Tonka Edition rolls on a set of chrome 20-inch wheels wrapped with 35×12.5-inch Nitto Ridge Grappler tires, and sits up extra high thanks to Pro-Comp six-inch lift kit and heavy-duty shock absorbers. Special touches are also present inside the cabin, where this pickup is equipped with Tonka embroidered headrests, along with all of the niceties one would expect to find in a Lariat-trimmed F-150, such as dual-zone automatic climate control, wood trim, leather seats, and a touchscreen.
Power for this particular pickup comes from the naturally-aspirated Ford 5.0L V8 Coyote engine, which was originally rated to produce 360 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque. That power flows to either the rear or all four wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission, a two-speed transfer case, and a 3.73-geared rear axle.
Though they rarely pop up for sale in any condition, this 2014 Ford F-150 Tonka Edition pickup is in very nice shape, with just some surface rust and normal wear present throughout. It’s truly a special find, though it remains to be seen if its rarity leads to a big time sale price when the hammer falls on this auction.

If yoi drop that Tonka F-150 and a real Tonka toy truck off a cliff, the F-150 will be demonished while the toy Tonka will survive with only scratches.
Definitely not one of Ford’s better ideas
In fairness, it wasn’t Ford’s idea. These were done by Tuscany for dealerships.
500 too many. What a hideous vehicle.
