Velocity Modern Classics recently announced its restomod 1970 Ford F-250, a carefully crafted meld of the classic fifth-generation F-Series pickup’s styling and modern-day comfort and technology. The Florida-based vehicle restoration and parts manufacturing company is offering a 1970 F-250 that’s completely rebuilt from the ground up, pairing a restored body with a custom modernized drivetrain.
The restored pickup rides on the Roadstershop RS4 chassis and features an all new Dana 44 front axle with a Dana 60 in the rear. Its off-road setup includes custom-valved AFCO shocks, maintaining ride quality without sacrificing off-road capabilities. Braking is supported by a Baer system on all four wheels. Beefy 33-inch Toyo Open Country tires provide plenty of grip, rolling on a set of 18-inch paint-matched wheels.
This restomod 1970 Ford F-250 cradles Ford’s 5.0L V8 Coyote engine with sound piped through a custom exhaust system. Its power is routed through its wheels via an automatic transmission with overdrive, along with an Atlas II transfer case, facilitating quick and easy shifts to four-wheel-drive.
Up front, a set of JW Speaker LED headlights illuminate the path ahead, while all-new glass and California-style sideview mirrors provide visibility around the custom pickup.
Inside, the 1970 Ford F-250 features a host of modern style and technology. It features a custom premium leather bench seat and a Dakota Digital gauge cluster made specially for Velocity, along with a custom dash. A Bluetooth-capable Morel head unit combined handles interior sound and even includes a subwoofer. A Vintage Air system provides the comfort and convenience of modern cabin climate control, and a GT Performance steering wheel with an Sparc Industries tilt column helps the driver guide the truck.
“The Velocity F-250 is a representation of an incredible, innovative team that brought an idea to life with inspired renderings, calculated visions and passion. Velocity is run by a group of individuals that are consumed with bringing classic restoration artistry to the modern world,” said Cody Dabney, Director of Custom Vehicle Operations. “The F-250 High Roller is the pinnacle of our new F-series Heritage Edition and a beautiful addition to our signature series. We can’t wait to see it on the road.”
Reservations for the first five units of the 1970 Ford F-250 restomod can be placed now, and deliveries are expected to commence in mid-2023.
