There’s a reason why this black F-Series has a menacing stance and custom body treatment: It’s packing a supercharged V8 under the hood and will scoot to 60 miles per hour in just a little over six seconds.
“This black S331 is one of 295 supercharged versions produced and is chassis #325 of 398 total SS1s made,” the listing states. Showing just over 50,000 miles on the odometer, this pickup reportedly received a new engine within the last 3,000 miles.
The Saleen name has been very familiar to Ford performance enthusiasts for nearly 40 years. The company was founded by Steve Saleen in 1983 as a manufacturer of high-performance auto parts, first partnering with Ford a couple of years later with the installation of a supercharger on a Mustang. Later that same decade, Saleen entered the Sports Car Club of America race series, and things took off from there. Saleen went on to modify various FoMoCo models over the years, including a Tempo, a Windstar, a Contour, and various pickup trucks. That’s where today’s spotlight comes into play.
Dubbed the S331, this limited-production 2007 F-150 started out as a traditional two-wheel drive extended-cab 11th-generation that was tweaked both mechanically and cosmetically to set it apart from the rest. Included in Saleen’s “special sauce” were ingredients like a lowered suspension, a custom grille, color-keyed rocker trim, dual side-exit exhausts, and stunning chrome-finished 23-inch wheels.
But the real magic happens under the hood, where a 450-horsepower supercharged 5.4-liter V8 is lurking. With a torque rating of 500 lb-ft, this truck is ready to put in some heavy lifting if ever called upon. The listing doesn’t state the reason for the recent engine replacement, but it’s good to know that things are mechanically sound. The seller states that the Indiana title is clean, and sale includes two key fobs and an owner’s manual.
The F-150 is an all-time American favorite vehicle, and this version brings added power, exclusivity, and style to an already well-rounded platform. Not to mention it’ll tow your boat to the ramp in record time.
The seller is asking $35,000 or best offer for this souped-up pickup.
