1969 was a wild year in America. The Vietnam War was at its peak. Protesters were in the streets. The flower power movement was in full swing. Thousands congregated for the Woodstock music festival. On top of that, with the Apollo 11 mission, the first man landed on the moon. 1969 was also a good year for pickup truck-lovers with the beautiful styling of the 5th-generation Ford F-Series. Do you want to take a time capsule back to the late 1960s and enjoy the early days of the F-Series? Enter an Omaze drawing to win a custom 1969 Ford F-100 4×4 truck — and help a good cause!
Restored and upgraded 1969 Ford F-100
The 1969 Ford F-100 for the Omaze contest is a beauty. It was perfectly restored by Gateway Bronco, an automotive restoration company in Illinois. In restoring the F-100, Gateway Bronco stayed true to the classical styling of the original while upgrading it with a new engine, suspension, a luxurious interior, and modern amenities. The retail price of the truck is $207,000. You can also opt for the $155,250 cash payment instead.
The exterior of the custom F-100 has a striking maroon and white color combination. The truck rolls on 18-inch vintage-style billet wheels and 33-inch BF Goodrich tires. It also features a barn wood bed and tailgate, as well as power-retractable side steps.
The cab of the classic F-100 is a pleasing blend of vintage styling and modern luxury. Notable interior features include a GT350-inspired wood steering wheel, 3-point seatbelts, power windows, air conditioning, and a Bluetooth stereo. The truck also has Whiskey distressed leather on the seats, dashboard, headliner, and visors.
Gateway Bronco really worked their magic with the performance features of the F-100. It has a 5.0-liter Coyote V8 engine, which doles out 460 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. With its traction-enhancing 4WD system and a Currie 9” rear differential, the vintage F-100 boasts off-road capabilities. The truck also has Wilwood 4-wheel disc brakes with hydroboost, as well as a Borla exhaust.
