It seems that more and more dealership customized vehicles are starting to pop up for sale all over the country. Whether it be a convertible Dodge Challenger or a vintage styled Ford F-150, all sorts of enthusiast-focused offerings and the dealers that sell them have been getting media attention as of late. Long McArthur Ford in Salina, Kansas has offered a number of dealer customs in the past, and have now hit the market with their new Ford F-150 LM650 package. These are the same people that gave us the off-road-ready Ford Ranger Baja.
The LM650 starts its life as a well appointed F-150 Lariat before a Roush supercharger is screwed atop the truck’s 5.0-liter Coyote V8, which results in a total output of 650 horsepower. Other performance upgrades include a mean sounding Roush active exhaust system, and a Roush-sourced two-inch suspension lift kit complete with Fox shocks.
Visually the Ford F-150 LM650 is more aggressive looking that the standard truck, and is inspired by the 750 horsepower 2017 Shelby F-150 Super Snake. A large dual opening hood scoop adorns the front of the truck, while body-color fender flares help cover the 20-inch aftermarket wheels wrapped in 35-inch BF Goodrich tires. Shelby-esque blue stripes cover much of the truck’s bodywork, including parts of the grille, hood, roof, tonneau cover and tailgate. Construction supplies aren’t what you’ll be hauling in the LM650 either, as the inside of the bed has been lined with carpet like the Shelby F-150 Super Snake as well.
Long McArthur currently has the Ford F-150 LM650 listed for $84,445, though that price includes a $5,500 dealer discount. While that is significantly higher than the price of the spectacular F-150 Raptor, it is a bargain compared to the $96,880 base price of the Shelby F-150 Super Snake the LM650 takes inspiration from. We love that dealerships are interested in creating these projects for car enthusiasts, no matter how niche they may prove to be.
