The BFP Retro F-150 brings nostalgic 70s and 80s style to modern Ford trucks.
Nostalgia is a permanent part of popular car culture. That also extends into automotive culture as people get older and discover they can afford the cars they dreamed of when they were young. The problem there is that 30 or 40-year-old vehicles lack a lot of the features, ride comfort, power, and ability that we enjoy now from new vehicles. For the truck guys, Beechmont Ford Performance in Cincinnati, Ohio, has come up with its retro look package that pays homage to the iconic styling of the classic 70s and 80s trucks but on a modern Ford F-150 platform. Or, as BFP puts it, "Iconic Style Meets Modern Performance."
It's hard to argue with BFP's statement that "The iconic styling that we saw in the late 1970s and early 1980s doesn't roll down the assembly line anymore but that doesn't mean we can't have it. After all, this is America," but it could be taken too far. However, with the Retro F-150, BFP hasn't gone too far over the top while still hitting all the right notes for nostalgia buffs. The package includes a satin pearl wrap to bring two-tone style to the modern paint along with a 3.5-inch lift and 17-inch polished Mickey Thompson wheels wrapped with what should only be BFG All-Terrain tires.
BFP also adds the Black Horse Bed Rack with KC Hi-Lights because it wouldn't be truly retro without a chrome bar for someone to hang on to while standing in the bed and a set of spotlights to blind oncoming traffic with.
True to BFP's roots, a Roush Performance Cat-Back exhaust also comes with the package to uncork the burble and roar of the Coyote V8. For customers wanting more power (and who wouldn't want more power), they can also option either a Roush Performance Supercharger or Whipple Supercharger upgrade on the engine.
