Velocity expands its lineup to include 1967-72 Ford F-100 trucks featuring Gen III Coyote V8 engines paired with an array of modern amenities, available in just 14 weeks
PENSACOLA, Fla. (June 20, 2023) – Velocity Modern Classics, an industry leader in classic vehicle modernization, has just announced the newest addition to its lineup of classic F-series trucks. Designed to be a vintage turnkey driver, the all-new 1967-72 Velocity Signature Series F-100 has been restored and modified far beyond its former glory. With several key upgrades that bring the classic into the modern era, the Velocity F-100 is engineered to retain its vintage feel while still boasting modern performance and reliability. Key features include a Coyote V8 engine mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission all mounted to a Roadster Shop chassis, along with modern luxuries like a Vintage Air climate-control system and a RetroSound Bluetooth stereo. Velocity also offers a variety of paint and trim options, as well as other optional upgrades for customers to choose from.
The Velocity F-100 is powered by a Ford Performance Gen III 5.0L Coyote V8, making 460 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque paired with a Ford 10R80 automatic transmission. Velocity’s proprietary serpentine system keeps things moving under the hood, and a custom-built exhaust gives the F-100 a distinct rumble. Everything rides on a Roadster Shop F-100 chassis with front and rear Fox coilovers for a comfortable ride. The truck also comes equipped with an independent front suspension and a Ford 9-inch rear axle with a 3.73 gear ratio. Baer four-piston calipers with 13-inch rotors provide stopping power.
For the exterior, Velocity’s designers maintained the original look of the truck while elevating it with several modern components. JW Speaker LED headlights set into the chrome grille illuminate the street at night, while 245/50R18 Michelin tires grip the road wrapped around 18-inch alloy wheels. Custom BASF Glasurit paint, chrome bumpers and all-new glass and weather seals make the truck feel brand new.
Velocity’s signature interior begins with a custom bench seat, a Velocity-exclusive Dakota Digital gauge cluster, power windows and a carpeted interior. Sound comes through a Bluetooth-enabled RetroSound Huntington head unit that routes music through a Focal speaker system. Modern climate control is handled by Vintage Air. A classic wood steering wheel attaches to an Ididit tilt column allowing adjustability and ease of use.
In addition to the standard Signature Edition, Velocity offers a more premium Street Edition trim. It includes performance upgrades such as two-way adjustable Fox coilovers, larger six-piston calipers with 14-inch rotors for additional stopping power, and 19-inch front and 20-inch rear Forgeline wheels wrapped in 255/45ZR19 front and 295/40ZR20 rear Michelin tires.
The exterior of the Street Edition sets itself apart with two-toned BASF Glasurit paint options, vintage-inspired beltline trim, color-matched Raptor Liner bed liner and custom-machined exterior billet components, including door handles, side mirrors, hood badging and tailgate handle.
Inside, the bench seat is stitched with premium leather, which also wraps the Sparc Industries steering wheel. The interior also gets the billet treatment with door handles, window cranks, window pulls and dash knobs, all machined by Velocity. Lastly, the radio is swapped with an Alpine double-din head unit and a backup camera is added for additional safety.
“The Velocity F-100 is a testament to our passion for bringing these incredible classic vehicles back into the modern world,” said Velocity CEO Jeremy Hans. “The F-100 is the latest addition to our line-up and shows our team’s remarkable dedication and creativity, who transformed yet another vision into reality. There is such rich history behind these trucks, and we’re excited to see them back on the road.”
The Velocity F-100 will serve as Velocity’s fourth line of Signature Series vehicles, joining the Bronco, F-250 and K5 Blazer lines. Each Signature Series vehicle is built in-house on an unprecedented 14-week production timeline. Velocity is now taking reservations for the first round of F-100s, with deliveries scheduled for fall 2023.
