Prototype Concept: 1993 Ford F-250 Predator Pickup

The rumors were out on the internet, but everyone assumed it was a fake.  No, I'm not talking about Ben Affleck's awesome full back tattoo...no sir, I'm talking about the prototype Ford F-series pickup from the 1990s called the Predator.  Find this 1993 Ford F-250 Predator Pickup offered for $20,000 in Commerce, MI via craigslist.




From the seller:
1993 Ford Predator Prototype concept Pickup Truck. This truck was built for the 1993 Detroit Auto show but was never put into production. The body is fiberglass and as such is in perfect condition. Zero miles. Comes with or without original Cleveland engine. Price negotiable.

Will sell or trade.

  1. I'm hardly a Ford guy, but wouldn't this thing be more likely to carry a Windsor under the hood?

  2. I get that it's a show car.

    But does it have running gear? Or do they just throw the engine in the bed and call it good?

    No shots of the engine bay, or undercarriage, or cab make me wonder...

  3. Wouldn't it be a little counter-intuitive to purchase this without the original engine?

  5. I worked at a place in the 90s that built prototype cars. "Blobitecture" was the style for sure.
    It was pretty fun experience, got to work with Jay Mayes, Freeman Thomas (Audi, VW), Franz von Holzhausen (Tesla) before they were famous.

  6. Agreed on the lack of drivetrain info. One would think a zero miles concept truck ad would be spattered with pics/info from every angle. How did he even come to own it, etc. Seller could be the predator....
