Frankenstein S-Type F-150 Is a Sight to Behold!

Jaguar S-Type F-150

‘Prototype J-150’ is either the Jaguar truck of our dreams, or a bizarre abomination of our nightmares.

Once upon a time, Ford gathered a few of Britain’s greatest automotive names (and one Swedish brand) under one roof, the Premier Automotive Group. Alongside Aston Martin, Land Rover, and Volvo, Jaguar spent the start of the new millennium building cars like the S-Type, a car that Jeremy Clarkson once described as “like Beaujolais nouveau  awful when it came out and then just gets steadily worse as time passes.”

If the S-Type was Beaujolais nouveau, then this discovery by The Drive might be a case of PBR from September 2018: a Denver mad man is selling his “prototype J-150” on Craigslist for $7,000.

And what is the “J-150,” you may be asking. Well, it’s a 2000 Ford F-150 with the front clip of a 2000 S-Type placed over a 5.4-liter V8 from a Lincoln Navigator. The Jag truck is currently painted in blue, while the red leather interior has Jaguar branding stitched just beneath the headrests. Other custom touches include side exhaust pipes, white “ninja star” wheels with black hub caps, and two sunroofs to welcome the sun from every angle.

The current owner says the “J-150” needs “some bondo work on the hood where it has a crack and has a minor scrape and ding on the rear.” The owner also says the truck receives lots of looks and thumbs-ups at red lights, plus plenty of photos taken of this…interesting…build.

If this is (somehow) up your alley, you can take the truck for $7,000 as-is, or have the owner handle the body and repaint for $11,000 with $6,000 down; the owner will also consider cash and trade “if you have something cool.” We think it may be better to use that money for a down payment on a new F-PACE, though.

Since launching her professional writing career nearly a decade ago as a fashion blogger, Cameron Aubernon has written for a handful of online and print publications on a wide variety of subjects, including expat issues, fashion, music, and, of course, the automotive industry. The automotive expert was even the editor-in-chief of a popular online lifestyle publication, where she reviewed luxury cars and interviewed fellow automotive enthusiasts.

A graduate of The Evergreen State College Class of 2005 with a bachelor's in liberal arts, Aubernon took a left turn from fashion writing into the automotive realm when she asked a fellow writer via Facebook if she could write for their site. Following an internship, stints with a couple of hyper-local online publications, and a move to Seattle, she made her then-biggest impact with The Truth About Cars, writing full-time for the publication from 2013 to 2015.

Currently, the highly-regarded automotive journalist is a frequent contributor to the high-traffic Internet Brands Auto Group websites Rennlist, Club Lexus, LS1Tech and Mustang Forums, among others.

Aubernon’s expert knowledge of all things Ford trucks has also made her a mainstay as one of the most prolific writers on Ford Truck Enthusiasts and F-150 Online.
