Ken Block’s 1977 Ford F-150 “Hoonitruck” is currently sold through LBI Limited at a price of $ 1.1 million.

In case you didn’t know it, the heavily modified pickup was commissioned by Block to replace the “Hoonicorn” Ford Mustang for its “Gymkhana” video series. Block picked a 1977 F-150 because, as a teenager, he had some of his early experiences with the same model year truck that belonged to his father.

The truck is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 with twin turbocharging based on the Ford GT racing engine. It produces 914 horsepower and 702 lb-ft of torque, which is sent to all four wheels via a Sadev 6-speed transmission. The choice of engine is appropriate, because the modern F-150 also uses a biturbo 3.5-liter V-6.

With a width of just over 79 inches, the clearance for trailers was seen as too little, so the truck had to be dismantled for transport to the locations. It’s also modular to make on-site repairs easier.

Block drove the Hoonitruck up the road to China’s Heaven’s Gate in Climbkhana Two, and the truck was also featured in Gymkhana 10 alongside many of Block’s other vehicles.

After his exclusive partnership with Ford ended, Block also parted ways with some of his Blue Oval rides. In addition to the Hoonitruck, he recently put two Ford Fiesta rally cars and a rare 1986 Ford RS200 up for sale. As a free agent, Block has tried Skoda and Subaru rally cars for the past few months, and it’s unclear whether he’ll commission another truck build to replace the Hoonitruck.
