Introducing the Gateway Bronco Godzilla Ford F-350.

Ford trucks literally make the world go round. These hardy and trustworthy workhorses can be found across the globe, doing neck-breaking work on construction sites and farms, but there's another side to these agrarian machines; people love to modify and restore them. The Ford F-350 Super Duty is a truck that is dear to the aftermarket tuning scene, We've seen some seriously modified versions of the modern vehicle, and tons of resto-mods to classic generations, but this 1972 Gateway “Godzilla” F-350 might just be the coolest creation yet. This crazy truck is set to blow minds at the SEMA show in Las Vegas on November 2, 2021, and we get a sneak peek at it before it goes on show.

Gateway Bronco is a company that specializes in the transformation of Ford vehicles, especially heritage F Series trucks, and makes use of modern tech to completely change the character of these trucks. The F-350 Godzilla is one of its wildest creations to date, and features the mighty Godzilla 7.3-liter engine. This motor makes use of a Harrop version of the Eaton Twin Vortices Series (TVS) Supercharger also found on the Ford Shelby GT500. This combination is good for over 1,000 horsepower. Power is sent to the wheels via Eaton ELocker performance differentials in both the front and rear and a six-speed automatic transmission. For heavy-duty off-roading, there’s even a push-button 4×4 controller.

“When we announced our intention to reimagine classic Ford trucks in 2020, we immediately received a commission to push the envelope by using the all-new 7.3L Ford ‘Godzilla’ engine in the vehicle,” said Seth Burgett, CEO of Gateway Bronco. “Once that challenge was made, the choice of who to work with on the build of this historic truck was easy, Harrop USA. When it comes to delivering performance and horsepower, Harrop is at the top of the list.”

The exterior features a custom paint scheme wearing Porsche's Miami Blue and Shelby's Wimbledon White, and a barnwood bed. This all sits on top of a powder coated custom designed 4-link chassis. On the inside there's custom leather upholstery, including distressed bench seats.

“While our Godzilla won't breathe flames, it will lay them down,” said Burgett. “Featuring the world's first Godzilla 7.3L engine with a Harrop USA Supercharger, and delivering over 1000 horses, this first-of-its kind, handcrafted truck will have SEMA attendees looking over their shoulder for the beast in the building.”

Each and every Gateway Bronco comes with a three, five, or seven-year bumper-to-bumper warranty and the company's industry-leading Field Service Program. We can't wait to see more of this thing in the near future.
