1998 NASCAR Edition Ford F-150

Limited Edition NASCAR F-150 History & Information

The Nascar edition Ford F-150 was introduced in 1998 to kick off Ford Motor Company's 5 year contract as the "official truck of NASCAR", as well as celebrate the 50th anniversary of NASCAR. Production of the NASCAR edition F-150 was limited to 3,000 units, and the special order code 94N truck was only available for the 1998 model year. Part of a regional package, the trucks were mainly sold in the southeastern states, where stock car racing, and therefore NASCAR, has the largest following. All NASCAR edition F-150's were produced at Ford's Norfolk assembly plant in Norfolk, Virginia. The NASCAR edition F150 was only available as a regular cab, 2wd pickup wrapped in XL trim. It is impossible to identify these pickups by VIN number, but since there were only 5 options available for order, the trucks are easily recognizable.

1998 Ford F-150 NASCAR Edition

The NASCAR edition F-150s were all painted black and featured NASCAR graphics/accents on the body. The interiors were gray with NASCAR embroidered accents on the seats and floor mats. For powertrain, only the 4.6L V-8 engine and a 5 speed manual or 4 speed automatic transmission were offered. It is rumored that the 5.4L V-8 engine was in high demand at the time and was therefore not used, as Ford did not want to interrupt production of their standard pickups. Though the engine featured a unique FOU1 PCM code, engine output was equal to that of the standard 1998 4.6L V-8. A stainless steel dual exit exhaust system with Roush tips gave the truck additional style. Many dealers installed polished wheels on these trucks to attract potential buyers, but all NASCAR edition F-150s left the assembly plant with 10 spoke, black aluminum wheels.

The NASCAR edition F-150 was only available in 1998, though a NASCAR accent package was available for additional model years (such as 1999). The accent package was a dealer installed add-on, and a truck with this option is NOT a NASCAR edition F-150. Additional unique styling features include a 1" lower ride height, Roush air dam in the front of the truck, and Goodyear P255/70R16 Wrangler AP tires with yellow lettering.
