Even though it hasn't gone on sale quite yet, the 2008 Ford F-150 Chip Foose Edition is already getting some spiffs.

Cars.com says the Foose F-150 has between $3,000 and $3,500 cash back (plus another potential $1,000 in financing cash) on its, "intricately detailed hood."

After Ford introduced the Chip Foose enhanced version of the F-150 at last year's New York Auto Show, news about the limited edition, supercharged half-ton went dark. Here's an update from Ford.

The prototype shown in 2007 was equipped with a Saleen supercharger bolted on the F-150's 5.4-liter V8 - rated at 450-hp and 500 lb-ft of torque. It was the same compressor shared with the Harley-Davidson edition F-150. But for the 2008 model year production truck, Ford has replaced the Saleen unit with a Roush sourced supercharger. Power ratings remain the same, at 450/500.

The first Foose F-150s should be arriving at dealers over the next few months. The truck's base price is $36,355. Adding Chip's stripes, wheels and supercharger will tack another $18,845 to the sticker, for a grand total of $55,200.
