1991 Ford F-150 PPG Indy Car Pace Truck Up For Auction

My Post 69

The 1990s were a magical decade for fans of sport trucks, a time when the original Ford F-150 Lightning helped define the at-the-time burgeoning trend. Today, most have moved on to off-road-focused four-wheel-drive pickups like the F-150 Raptor, but some still have a soft spot for the low-slung, performance-focused street truck. Those folks will also undoubtedly remember this 1991 Ford F-150 PPG Indy Car Pace Truck that’s currently up for grabs at Cars & Bids.

Dubbed the “Sport Boss,” this 1991 Ford F-150 PPG Indy Pace Truck is a famous one-off vehicle created by Roush and McLaren Performance Technologies. It was actually used in the PPG IndyCar World Series from 1991-1994, at that time wearing a livery that consisted of purple, white, and red hues, but was later repainted in the scheme seen in these photos.

As one can quickly tell, this is no ordinary F-150, and it has been treated to a laundry list of modifications outside, inside, and under the hood. That includes a comprehensive custom body kit, custom doors, an integrated roll bar, headlight and taillight covers, custom paint, 17-inch AZE wheels, roof lights, and a rear bed partition with rear-facing seats.

Inside, the Sport Boss features a pair of Ford Taurus SHO bucket seats, black leather upholstery with purple accents, a full-length center console, an overhead console, and a Midland UHF radio. What’s particularly notable, however, is what lies under the hood – a Roush-modified 5.0L V8 that produces over 500 horsepower, which it sends to the rear wheels via a four-speed automatic transmission.

The Sport Boss is a cool piece of Blue Oval history that most fans around in the 1990s undoubtedly remember, and it’ll be interesting to see what it ultimately sells for when the hammer falls.
