A father and son duo from Vietnam has built a wooden Ford F-150 from scratch in 150 days and captured the build process on video.

    Dao Truong Van recorded the time lapse for his YouTube channel, following the intricate process from crafting the ute for his father.

    The duo has built a variety of wooden cars including a Rolls-Royce, Audi, and Lamborghini.

    The video shows the process starting with the metal chassis being welded together. Mr Van then attaches the wooden blocks to the vehicle before cutting each block to shape.

    Once the rough outline of the vehicle is complete, Mr Van begins to sand down details like the door handles, bonnet ridges, doors, and the tray.

    He even includes decals like Raptor badging on the tailgate and the side of tray.

    Inside, Mr Van begins adding blocks to level the dashboard inserts, before cutting and shaping the dashboard itself.

    He adds a seperate part for the instrument cluster and steering column. Once that’s complete he carves out the instrument cluster and central controls.

    After the basic shell of the interior is complete, he adds stained wooden exterior details like the front grille, air intakes, side steps, and mirrors.

    Mr Van begins to add similar details to the interior including the air vents, and faux button controls – all made out of wood.

    Larger interior features like the centre console, drivers seat and steering column are put together and installed.

    After the assembly process is complete, the vehicle receives a polish and spray paint to complete the look, before Mr Van adds headlights, faux fog lights, and tail lights.

    Mr Van has also incorporated perspex windscreen and windows, wipers, dual-metal chain retractors for the tailgate, and Raptor decals.

    Once the vehicle is complete, Mr Van heads over to deliver the vehicle to his father. What appears to be Mr Van’s son hands over the keys, before loading some farm equipment and a bike into the tray and driving into the city.

    The father looks very pleased with his son’s invention and even gives his grandson a high five.
