Would You Turn Your F-150 Into A Fastback With This Topper?
February 13th, 2019
Would you like your Ford truck to have more of a '69 Mach 1 Mustang type of appeal? Maybe you are a big fan of the classic fastback but still need to haul things around. This product might be for you. This bed cap is meant to turn your 2015+ Ford F-150 into a fastback. Interesting, right?
Shown at SEMA last year, these bed toppers are called Aero X and are made by Michigan Vehicle Solutions. It is a 260-lb fiberglass bed cap that is Mustang-inspired with a louvered rear window and sloping angle. It also features a lockable clamshell, a built-in audio setup, and latches normally using bed clamps. It measures 5 1/2-foot by 6-1/2-foot, and pricing starts at $3,995.
"We looked around and saw the lack of innovation out there," Oliver tells The Drive. "It's time for a different thing from our grandfathers' bed caps. The flat tonneau, the shoebox, all that has run its course."
Aero X will need a large aftermarket partner to aid in production and installation, as the company can only make 8-10 of these a week. Also, fast and efficient shipping is quite an obstacle, but the company would like to create fastback bed caps for every available pickup on the market today in the future.
