83 Ford F150 4x4 Long Bed


Recommended Posts

Nice conversion, but it isn't an '83. The '82 up Ford F series had the Ford letters removed from the hood and the Ford emblem was added to the center of the grille. I owned an '83 F-100 for over 16 years. Someday, I want to build a replica of it.

It would really be nice if there was a resin long wide box available as there are those who do like the lwb pickups as much or more than short box trucks. Speaking for myself, I'd buy more pick up kits if they weren't mostly all short box variations and I think that there would be a market for long wheel base boxes not just of this vintage of Ford, but older ones as well as well as a long box for the Revell '64 Chevy pickup.

You could just cast the bed sides for those that already have the bed floor. Someone needs to make the tailgate that says Ford and is different then the one on yours. That is a hold up on my 1/25 scale bed. I used a 90's ford bed and sides with the 79 bronco 1/25 scale for the right wheel well shape.I also used the Bronco body for the cab.

I'll buy a resin cast of it for sure whenever you get it done!
