Ken Block's legendary 1977 Ford F-150, famously known as the "Hoonitruck," is currently up for sale through LBI Limited, with a price tag of $1.1 million.

If you're unfamiliar, Ken Block commissioned the extensively modified truck as a successor to his "Hoonicorn" Ford Mustang for his renowned "Gymkhana" film series. Block opted for a 1977 F-150, a nod to his early days of "hooning" in his father's truck of the same model year.

The truck is powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6, derived from the Ford GT racing engine, delivering an impressive 914 horsepower and 702 pound-feet of torque.

This power is transmitted to all four wheels through a 6-speed Sadev gearbox. The choice of this engine aligns with the contemporary F-150, which also features a twin-turbo 3.5-liter V-6.

Due to its narrow clearance of just over 79 inches, the truck was designed to be disassembled for transportation to filming locations. Its modular design facilitates easy on-site repairs.

In "Climbkhana Two," Block maneuvered the Hoonitruck up the challenging route to China's "Heaven's Gate," while in "Gymkhana 10," it shared the spotlight with several of Block's other vehicles.

Following the end of his exclusive collaboration with Ford, Block is parting ways with several of his Blue Oval vehicles. Alongside the Hoonitruck, he recently listed two Ford Fiesta rally vehicles and a rare 1986 Ford RS200 for sale. Now a free agent, Block has been exploring new avenues, testing Skoda and Subaru rally cars in recent months. The future holds uncertainty as to whether he will commission a new truck to replace the Hoonitruck.
