Check out this 50-year-old Ford F-100 restomod
Icon has worked its tuning magic on a half-a-century-old F-100 pickup, landing it with a brand-new drivetrain and state-of-the-art cabin tech.
The truck now uses a Ford Coyote V8 coupled with a Ford AOD four-speed auto transmission to send up to 432 hp (322 kW) and 545 Nm (400 lb-ft) of torque to all four wheels. Advance Adapter supplied the Atlas II transfer case, while Art Morrison manufactured the new frame and made the necessary chassis adjustments.
Further noteworthy features include Borla exhaust, Brembo brakes, 18-inch wheels coming to replace stock 15-inch ones, BF Goodrich A/T tires, Dynatrac ProRock axles, Eibach shocks, Fox Racing springs, PSC power steering, and retractable running boards. Crack open the door to be greeted by a full-fledged HVAC system, USB and Bluethooth connectivity options, and seats wrapped in a combination of Relicate leather and Maharam fabric.
Perhaps the most impressive part of the project is that both the exterior and the interior stay as authentic as possible in terms of design, despite the modifications. The body wears a nostalgia-inducing dual-tone paintjob straight from the 1970s, the aluminum rims sport classical hubcaps, and the window raisers are still manual.
The client shelled out around $500,000 USD for the restoration.
