Bracing won’t help you get ready for this Ford F-150 being sold on Facebook Marketplace. Neither will yoga, mindfulness, or two shots of vodka. In fact, nothing can prepare you for the DIY Premier Automotive Group fever dream that is the S-150. J-150? Forduar? Is this technically a Jag-up? Please don’t let this be technically called an F-Type.
The early-aughts Jaguar S-Type is generally regarded as one of the cars of all time. Decent to drive but difficult to look at, it was a turning point for the retro-themed car wave that made everyone with taste wonder, “Erm, are you sure about that?” Coincidentally, the tenth-generation Ford F-Series pickup truck is also the black sheep of its bloodline, a jellybean-shaped workhorse that isn’t remembered with the same reverence of its contemporary GM and Dodge rivals, save for the supercharged Lightning street truck and Matt Hardigree’s weird obsession with jellybean F-150s.
However, the tenth-gen F-Series and the S-Type both shared enough cough drop-shaped DNA that someone thought it would be a good idea to mash parts of both together and see what’s what. Up for sale in Denver, Colo. is this 2001 extended cab F-150 with the grille, headlights, partial bumper, and possibly some of the hood of a Jaguar S-Type. Oh, and it has a Lincoln Navigator front bumper for good measure. If the Lincoln Blackwood actually sold, this would’ve been the next logical step.
While the exterior of this rolling Chimera (no, not the TVR) is fascinating, reports of the interior come across as no less than sumptuous. According to The Drive, this this has a red leather interior and dual sunroofs. If that isn’t ’04 rich, I don’t know what is.
This F-150 has been kicking around Colorado for a long time, so it shouldn’t be surprising that it’s deviated somewhat from the vision it was built with. After all, it’s been photographed rocking at least one flier set of wheels while devoid of the awful, visibility-impinging, two-brain-cells-fighting-for-third-place blue headlight tint. However, time has been kind enough to this creation that it seems pretty much intact, complete with some trademark tropes of the aughts. How about those Lightning-aping Altezza tail lights, the Z3-style louvers in the fenders, and the double-bubble tonneau cover? That’s SEMA 2004 all day, baby.
While it’s impossible to say whether some OEM employee — probably a bean counter — did or did not once ponder a Jaguar pickup truck, the marque isn’t traditionally known for high-end work vehicles. However, you’ll want to count your beans if you’re tempted by this tenth-gen F-150 because the seller wants $10,000 for it. Yeah, that’s a lot of moolah. However, it’s also a real case of ‘find another,’ as I’m sure Jaguar-faced trucks aren’t exactly common.
