Velocity Modern Classics Reveals its Latest Signature Model with 1970 Ford F-250
Starting with the Roadster Shop RS4 chassis, the truck comes equipped with all-new Dana axles, Dana 44 on the front end and a Dana 60 in the rear. To make it more capable off-road and maintain ride quality, the F-250 features custom-valved AFCO shocks. The truck is stopped by a Hydraboost-assisted set of Wilwood four-wheel disc brakes.
The Velocity F-250 is powered by a Ford Performance 5.0-liter Coyote V8 crate engine combined with custom-built exhaust system and a proprietary serpentine belt system. Moving everything along is an automatic transmission with overdrive and an Atlas II transfer case to allow for an easy change to 4-Wheel-Drive.
The interior and exterior of the pickup have been reimagined to incorporate modern features, but maintain the classic look. The exterior of the truck features custom paint and JW Speaker LED headlights that illuminate the street. The F-250 grips the road thanks to 33” BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A K02 tires wrapped around 18” paint-matched wheels. All-new glass and weather seals and California-style side view mirrors complete the exterior features.
Inside the cabin, Velocity’s craftsmen have created an interior that includes a custom bench seat made from premium leather, a Velocity-exclusive Dakota Digital gauge cluster and a custom dash. Sound comes through a bluetooth-enabled Retro Sound Huntington head unit and routes music through a Kicker sound system complete with a subwoofer. Modern climate control is handled through a Vintage Air system and the truck is driven by a GT Performance steering wheel attached to the Ididit tilt column allowing adjustability and ease of use.
“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.”
Velocity is now taking reservations for the first five units, with deliveries scheduled for Summer of 2023. For more information about the Velocity F-250 and other specialty vehicles, visit www.velocityrestorations.com.
