Ford's F-Series Super Duty pickups are not what they used to be. The weighty haulers have developed from essential work trucks into a full lineup of models that incorporates high-end luxury trims with costs of more than $100,000. What's more, presently, there is a better approach to align the old ones with the trend. Florida's Velocity Modern Classics has spent the previous decade building "restomods" of the Ford Bronco and International Scout, reestablishing them with modern powertrains and technology, and is currently adding the fifth generation 1967 to 1972 F-250 to the mix. The organization begins with an original donor truck, eliminating the body from the frame and giving it a full refresh. It is then reinstalled on a custom chassis worked by the Roadster Shop that is equipped with a suspension that replaces the back leaf springs with coilover shock absorbers. The powertrain comprises of a 5.0-liter "Coyote" V8 from the current F-150 that sends its power to the wheels through a 4x4 system involved a four-speed Ford transmission, Atlas transfer case, Ford nine-inch rear axle and Dana 44 front axle. The truck rides on a set of 18-inch wheels enclosed by 33-inch all-terrain tires and highlights a set of Wilwood four-wheel disc brakes. All the glass is new, just like the Drove headlights. The interior has gotten a gut renovation and will be and fitted with a leather bench seat, luxe carpet, a sporty tilt steering wheel and electronics that combine retro styling and controls with digital screens, Bluetooth connectivity and premium audio. The eventual outcome could put a new F-250 Limited to shame and accompanies a price that reflects the work. The Velocity Modern Classics F-250 beginnings at $285,000 while a Heritage Edition that adds two-tone paint, billet hardware, a towing package and different upgrades lists for $325,000. Indeed, even at such costs, the organization sells many its different models every year, so there is demand, and doing one of a kind sky's the cutoff interesting builds is likewise cheerful.
