It will sell for more than $100,000.

Mixing parts from different cars may walk sideways hopelessly, or leave you with something more impressive than what you get from the showroom floor. Fortunately, the list of trailers shown here is completely in the second category.

It is classified as a supercharged Mustang F-150 SVT Raptor, which is its essence. Outside, you will see the body panels, doors and B-pillars of the Bronco and F-250 Crew Cab from 1979. But under the nostalgic exterior is the chassis of the 2011 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor, as well as its drivetrain and interior. Oh, did we mention the 6.2-liter supercharged V8?

Yes, this truck is a weird but very popular hodgepodge of various Ford cars, combining the best of old school style and modern machinery. The truck was customized by Sweet Brothers Restomods of Upton, Wyoming, and their work has been rewarded with a current bid of more than $123,000.

On the outside, the truck has a vintage red and white finish. The front door must be lengthened and equipped with a chrome-plated anti-collision bar and a removable white hard top. The wheels are chrome-plated and measure 17 inches. They are wrapped in BFGoodrich all-terrain KO2 tires. However, the sale includes a set of white aftermarket wheels with red trim, and they will look better if you ask us. The Fox Racing internal bypass shock absorber is installed, and the front suspension travel is 11 inches, and the rear suspension travel is 12 inches.

The modern interior is inconsistent with the old-fashioned appearance, but features such as heated front bucket seats, automatic climate control, cruise control, and central LCD screen are all welcome.

Under the hood is a 6.2-liter V8 engine with a supercharger provided by Ford expert Roush. The tuner also provides a cold air intake system. Power is transmitted to the rear wheels or all four wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission and a two-speed transfer case. It won't feel or look like it from behind the steering wheel, but the title of this powerful truck lists it as a 1979 Ford. According to the odometer, it covers approximately 71,000 miles. Although the current price can buy you a brand new Bronco with all the additional features, and you can still have spare change, but this Restomod X-factor is no longer on the chart.
