Stunning 1970 Ford F-100 Restomod Is a TV Star
It took an incredible amount of labor to built this amazing Ford F-100. But given who it’s for, it was all worth it.
Taking a beat up old truck, tearing it apart, and rebuilding it from the ground up is not a task for meek. Even if you own a big time, world-renowned shop. But the folks at Classic Car Studio in St. Louis, Missouri, had a little extra motivation for transforming this 1970 Ford F-100 into the stunning masterpiece you see here.
For starters, the entire build was featured on a recent episode of Velocity Channel’s. But even better, it was gifted to a well-deserving veteran and retired fireman upon its completion.
On the surface, this is still clearly a 1970 Ford F-100. But under the skin, it’s essentially a brand new truck. The entire chassis was replaced with a Roadster Shop setup, Willwood brakes, and modern suspension goodies. It also lays the foundation for that killer stance, with 20-inch Billet Specialties B-Forged wheels stuffed up inside the fenders.
The heart of this beast is, well, a real beast. 520 cubic inches of Jon Kaase Boss madness pumps out a healthy 730 hp, making this old farm truck a real hot rod. But on the inside, it’s all luxury with miles of fine leather, custom seats, and Ford GT-inspired gauges.
All of which adds up to one seriously impressive piece of work. But when you’re building a truck for one of our nation’s heroes, all those hours of hard work are obviously worth it!
Velocity Channel’s Speed is the New Black airs every Wednesday at 9/8 p.m. Central.
