A lot has been advertised (on TV) about the aggressive financing Ford is offering to consumers to incentivize them to make a purchase now. I wrote about Ford’s Built To Land A Hand program where the automaker, through Ford Credit, is offering 84-month interest-free loans, as well as six months’ worth of deferral payments (three months deferred, and the first three months paid).
This program is aggressive, but needs to be considering how Ford has struggled recently financially due to the coronavirus pandemic. Ford sales of the F-150 were down more than 13 percent year over year. And even specialty truck makers, like Roush and others, have jumped into the special financing agreement through Ford Credit.
Now, Tuscany Motor Company, who is the specialty maker of such F-150 specials as Shelby F-150, Shelby F-150 Super Snake, FTX, Black OPS and Tonka brands, has teamed with motorcycle company Harley-Davidson to offer a 2019 Harley-Davidson F-150.
And, Tuscany announced that these special-edition Harley-Davidson F-150s are eligible for the special 84-month financing program. These incredible programs are available on any 2019 model Harley-Davidson F-150, including both the naturally aspirated and the 700-horsepower supercharged version.
“In my 30 years of building custom vehicles for Ford Motor Company I’ve never seen incentive programs like this.” said Jeff Burttschell, Vice President, Tuscany Motor Co. “Our dealers have very few Harley-Davidson F-150 trucks in stock that qualify for these limited time finance programs. Anyone who has ever been interested in one of these rare collectible trucks should act immediately.”
Harley-Davidson authorized Ford dealerships around the country will work with customers on a “no physical contact” sales and delivery process. Finance program details can be secured through those dealers.
2019 Ford F-150 Harley-Davidson
After a seven-year hiatus, Ford and Harley-Davidson once again teamed up to offer the limited-edition F-150 as a 2019 model year. From 2000 to 2012 more than 70,000 of these trucks were sold.
The Harley-Davidson F-150 is one of the most sought-after special edition trucks ever built.
The 2019 Harley-Davidson F-150 includes over 70 proprietary parts that make the truck stylish, comfortable and unmistakably Harley-Davidson. Styling was inspired by the famous Harley-Davidson Fat Boy® and CVO® models.
“Harley-Davidson is one of the most iconic brands in the world,” said Jeff Burttschell, Vice President, Tuscany Motor Co. “Working closely with Brad Richards, Vice President of Styling and Design at Harley-Davidson, we created a truck which will allow anyone to drive a world-class vehicle that honors the rich heritage of Harley-Davidson. Built to be recognized from a distance as a Harley-Davidson F-150, we believe it will be an instant classic.”
Harley-Davidson fans will appreciate the motorcycle inspired components and proprietary parts that add to the aggressive look of the truck include:
• Harley-Davidson branded Fat Boy style 22-inch milled aluminum wheels
• Custom tuned exhaust with H-D exclusive solid billet aluminum tips with orange accents
• Suspension lift exclusively engineered for H-D
• H-D exclusive tuned FOX performance shocks
• Power deploying lighted running boards with powder-coated rock guard trim
• Full replacement functional ram-air hood
• Painted custom fender flares
• Full replacement painted grille assembly with orange accents
• Painted fender vents with Bar & Shield badging
• Painted custom front bumper cover with skid plates
• LED light bar integrated into front bumper cover
• Harley-Davidson tailgate appliqué
• Locking ABS tonneau cover with embossed H-D bar & shield logo
• Carpet liner inside truck bed with H-D logo
• Custom leather seat covers with orange diamond pattern embroidery and H-D badging
• Accent color door panels, dash, & steering wheel trim
• Stainless Steel H-D gauges
• Billet H-D racing pedals
• H-D floor mats
• H-D door entry sills
• Distinctive H-D bar and shield badging
• Official numbered H-D center console badge
It’s pretty obvious that all manufacturers, including these specialty manufacturers are willing to make deals right now. The 2019 Harley-Davidson Ford F-150 is a limited-edition collector truck. So getting special financing really incentivizes anyone who has thought about getting one of these trucks to do so now.
