The Ford F150 truck has now been in production for well over 30 years now and initially when it appeared on the scene it was more commonly referred to as the "heavy half ton" by the company. Simply because the F100 was also still in production at this time. Yet it took another 24 years before Ford finally came out with a new version and which they worked on in conjunction with another iconic vehicle company, particularly Harley Davidson Motorcycles. So in 1999 the Ford Harley Davidson F150 was born.
Although this particular truck has been around for less than 10 years there are certainly many people who love the design and looks of it. But with all Ford vehicles and even those they make in collaboration with other motor vehicle companies hold true to the companies believes. But with this particular one it also takes into consideration the believes and philosophies that the Harley Davidson Motorcycle Company hold dear to their heart as well. Below we take a look at the 2006 and 2007 models of this vehicle and which will be come extremely popular with both Harley Davidson and Ford enthusiasts the world over.
1. The 2006 Ford Harley Davidson F150 Supercab – A beautiful looking vehicle which provides the rough and ruggedness you expect from a Ford truck but with the added benefits of some beautiful custom detailing, such as you would see on a Harley Davidson motorcycle. The exterior of the vehicle monotone but comes with a custom scalloped red paint stripe running the complete length of the vehicle which is then further accentuated by electric blue. Along with this custom paintwork on the vehicle at set intervals along the vehicles belt line you will find the Harley Davidson script.
In order to provide the vehicle with a much more menacing look and bring it into line with the kinds of looks that Harley Davidson motorcycles have. Ford has chosen to provide it with a chrome billet grille, plus the headlamps and taillights have also been blacked out. Finally they have included highly polished 22 inch forged aluminum rims to further add to its menacing looks.
2. The 2007 Ford Harley Davidson F150 Supercrew – Unlike the 2006 Supercab this particular model of F150 trucks exterior is not only available in monotone but but also in a rich amethyst color as well. Which is only one of the major differences between these two models. They both come with the 22 inch forged aluminum wheels which have been polished and a chrome grille. This vehicle also comes with both its headlights and taillights blacked out as you will soon discover all models of the Ford Harley Davidson F150 do.
The major difference between the 2006 Supercab and the 2007 Supercrew is what is under the hood. A person who purchases the 2007 model has the option of having a supercharger fitted to the Harley Davidson engine. This is typically to be found on Ford's Shelby GT500 and once fitted to this F150 will give the owner 450 break horsepower.
Along with a number of refinements to the exterior of the vehicle, Ford has made some changes to the interior of the F150 cab as well. It provides the people encased within with the feeling that they are out on the open road riding along on a Harley Davidson.
The seats (captains chairs) in the Ford Harley Davidson F150 truck are made from leather and into them has been stitched the logo which has become synonymous with one of the most iconic motorcycles the world knows. Also it has plenty of chrome trim and accessories in the cabs interior which further give it the feeling of being a custom made vehicle rather than one that has come off a production line.
