When it comes to classic trucks, it’s not often that you see a blending of old-school character with modern flair (or rather, it’s not often that you see the blending done well). Outside of a few infrequent tasteful restomods, most modified classic pickups end up looking like something straight from the Dub Auto Show. However, there is a right way to do everything, and we think this ’67 F100 sitting on Forgeline wheels hits the nail on the head.
Owned by Derek Brown and built by Deuce’s Wild Hotrods and Customs in Fillmore, California, this truck isn’t all for show. Under the hood sits a modern Boss 302 Coyote engine, backed by a six-speed T56 transmission. And, with a performance Black Widow exhaust and Full Throttle Kustomz tune, all the power is brought together nicely and puts out a glorious sound.
But Brown’s truck isn’t all about power: the front-end and chassis are custom-built by Fat Man Fabrication and Deuces Wild respectively; a custom, adjustable 3-link suspension sits in the rear; and RideTech remote-reservoir coilers give this F100 some serious handling capabilities.
With all four corners boasting 18×11-inch Forgeline GX3P’s and Falken tires for grip, this F100 definitely looks as great as it performs. So, in case you’ve ever wondered, yes, even a classic pickup like this ’67 Ford can make a badass track machine.
