And once again a completely crazy project is coming from Russia! However, not quite as idiotic as homemade ones, for example Plexiglass rims or a Machine gun exhaust, but somehow pretty cool and definitely unique. Curtain up for the 6 × 6 Ford Raptor bus, which would be the ultimate candidate as a film vehicle for a remake of “The A-Team”. And the base vehicle as the Ford Econoline (Production period: 1975-1991) would probably even know the four former soldiers BA Baracus, HM Murdock, Templeton Peck and John Smith. After all, the well-known A-Team bus as GMC Vandura also comes from this time. The US-American Econoline van has been given an additional axle and the complete front mask from the current Ford Raptor including the powerful grille and an additional built-in LED light bar.
The monster was created by the “Ford Market” team from Moscow, which specializes in particular in modified Ford brand vehicles. Crazy 6 × 6 conversions are actually not new, but normally you don’t use a van, but almost always a pickup like the Ford F-150, a GMC Sierra etc. But somehow Ford Market has managed to add the additional axle under a bus to bring and apparently even drive. However, the chassis looks like it is generally completely new and maybe only the body of the Econoline is put over it. We do not know it! In any case, there was a modified chassis with a significant increase in height and also a matt black wheelset with 37-inch (0,94 m) large off-road tires.
In particular, the front swap is extremely successful, as we think. Radiator grille, headlights, front apron and also the screwed fender flares fit the old body perfectly. And also at the rear, the rear lights of a Ford F150 from 2019 with LED technology were installed and the tailgate was given a small ladder. There were six additional high-beam headlights on the roof to ensure optimum illumination away from paved slopes. Everything is rounded off with a matt red paint finish that harmonises perfectly with the black accents. Incidentally, the vehicle seems to have been made last year and originally the new chassis and wheelset were also installed on the Econoline without Raptor components.
Only the additional axis was not yet visible. Ford Market has a lot of photos of the construction and conversion of the vehicle on its Instagram page and only pictures of the cabin are not visible. It would of course be the absolute highlight if the interior of an F-150 had also moved in. In contrast to many rather senseless conversions from Russia, this vehicle is really well done, such as the one Valkyrie 766 – Bonkers BMW 7er (E32) 4 × 4 Monster Truck. We are excited to see if we can see more pictures and perhaps a video of the Ford Raptor bus with 6 × 6 drive. If we receive timely information on further changes, there is of course an update for this report. You will be informed if you simply use ours Feed subscribe to.
