LAS VEGAS — Hot rod shop owner and fabricator Chip Foose has partnered with WD-40 to create a custom 2013 Ford F-150 to display during the 2013 SEMA Show. The car will be raffled for charity this spring.
Foose began by outfitting a 2013 Ford F-150 Lariat with a Whipple supercharger, Magnaflow exhaust and Gale Banks water-methanol injection system to bring output to an estimated 600 horsepower.
Off-roading capabilities are upgraded thanks to a completely redone suspension that includes converted 2013 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor parts on the front end.
Exterior changes include a WD-40 paint job, modified front and rear bumpers, 17-inch wheels with Falken all-terrain tires, new bed cage, LED lighting, a winch and fiberglass fenders, bed sides and hood. The interior received treatment as well, with its Katzkin leather and Clarion sound system. Power running boards, bed steps and a tailgate extender finish off the list of alterations.
The enhanced 2013 Ford F-150 will be raffled for charity in May. Foose says tickets will run $50 and the total cost of the build was more than $80,000. Proceeds will benefit three SEMA Cares charities: the SEMA Memorial Scholarship Fund, Childhelp and Victory Junction.
This is the sixth time WD-40 has teamed up with SEMA Cares charities and the fourth time Chip Foose has been a designer.
