Monogram Ford F-150 regular cab, short bed.

Recommended Posts

I built this back in 1990 and finally took some good pictures of it. I started with the Monogram F-250 extended cab, long bed kit. I shortened the cab, interior, chassis, inner bed, outer bed sides, fuel tank, exhaust and driveshaft and added aluminum tubing tips to the exhaust. I also cut the “2” from the F-250 side emblems, cut two tiny “1’s”, covered them in Bare Metal Foil and added them to the emblems. Other than that, it’s straight from the box.

That looks amazing, I had a 90 long bed with a 302 and it did not take long to realize why they came with 2 gas tanks..........................

Great job, I love it! If it was white in the middle it would be a dead ringer for the one I drove years ago.

Love the conversion. I would buy one if someone did it as a kit.
