For those coming of age in the 1980s, the typical Ford F-150 pickup truck was a two-tone. That look came with a base color of red or blue (although teal would have been acceptable), and white flanks. Now that all the cars have been painted dull, it’s refreshing to see a dealership out to recreate that ’80s F-150 look with brand new 2021 F-150 trucks.
The so-called BFP Retro F-150 comes from dealer Beechmont Ford from the Cincinnati area. It’s not an official Dearborn creation, but was clearly made as a tribute to the Blue Oval. It starts with a 2021 or 2022 F-150 in any trim level, although XLT or Lariat with the Chrome package is recommended, thanks to the copious amounts of bright work that comes with it.
To that, the dealer adds a Satin Pearl wrap to give it the two-tone look, although Beechmont says a paint option is also available. Other retro touches include a chrome bed rack with KC Daylighter lamps and 17-inch chrome wheels sheathed with 35-inch BF Goodrich all-terrain tires in white lettering. Finally, a 3.5-inch elevator rounds out the package.
Beechmont requires a $500 deposit, but the total package cost will depend on options chosen, such as a Roush cat-back exhaust and the base truck. At the moment, Beechmont says it is experiencing a six-to-seven month wait due to production delays (probably the shortage of microchips).
The current F-150 color palette isn’t the most exciting – different shades of gray, black, white, two very similar shades of blue, two reds and one dark green. The Retro F-150 seems like a neat package to liven up your truck that doesn’t scream a brodozer.
