Retro Ford F-150 build from dealer aims to bring back the 1970s

Old trucks are cool. Those two-color paint jobs, the graphics – some people miss them, so they want the same look on a brand new vehicle. Jeep brought the Gladiator name back, Ford brings Bronco back, and this retro build is actually done by a dealer.

We have seen a wild vehicle from Beechmont Ford in Cincinnati, Ohio, but that was a Mustang. This build is based on the F-150 and they have formally called it the 2019 Retro BFP F-150. The whole idea here is to sell a truck that reminds people of the styling of the 1970s and 1980s. We are pretty impressed with the package as a whole, because you get a lot of extra equipment that matches the new styling .

Beechmont says it starts with a white satin bead wrapping over every paint color you choose from the factory. This cover is the most important key to the whole look. A 3.5-inch Ready-lift kit helps fit large 35-inch BF Goodrich K02 off-road tires. The new tires also feature 17-inch Mickey Thompson wheels. In addition, the dealer adds a Roush cat-back exhaust to the 5.0-liter V8.

Another attractive aspect of the truck is the cover with KC lights attached to it. Beechmont recommends that you order your F-150 with the XLT or Lariat Chrome package to get the best retro effect. If you want something more than what is offered in the standard package, the dealer also lets you choose between a Roush supercharger or a Whipple supercharger to cheer up that V8. The disk reported that the package without the supercharger costs $ 9,995 in addition to the price of the truck. What is the warranty on the truck? We have asked the dealer and are waiting for a response.
