Photo Gallery for Phil Lowery's P100
This is my much loved Ford P100 Pick-up. It came up when I was looking for a small project to work on in the evenings and weekends. Much to my supprise it didnt turn out to be a 'small' project !
The car itself started life as is a 1986 P100, orginally white with a 2.0 petrol rear wheel drive 'commercial vehicle', however it has now been
First off and most noticeable is the colour. It was painted August '06 and it is 'RAC' Orange ! Its VERY BRIGHT, just ask anyone that has seen it !
Next came the hard work; the 2.0 engine was taken out and binned ! It was replaced with an 80'000 mile 2.9 V6 from an XR4x4, complete with wiring kit, brakes, 4 wheel drive and dash broad.
