Up close with Speed is the New Black’s 1970 Ford F100
You've seen it on telly with Noah Alexander, now discover all the bits he and his team added to this 1970 Ford F100 – creating the beast from Velocity Channel's Speed is the New Black
St.Louis-based car builder Classic Car Studio has restored a 1970 Ford F100, but it’s not for personal gain. The modified pick-up was renovated for a well-deserved veteran and retired fireman, firmly dedicated to supporting his country.
The 48-year old F100 featured during last week’s episode of Speed is the New Black, the Velocity Channel’s automotive staple currently enjoying its second series, starting as a dilapidated farm wagon that had endured a hard-working life. However, once Noah Alexander and his expert team set to work, the hero’s classic came out of the workshop with 730bhp under the bonnet.

All that power comes from a Jon Kasse Boss 520ci V8, mated to Tremec TKO 600 Transmission with Centerforce Clutch. Already an apt vehicle at towing other vehicles, this beast could now cart away a Boeing 747 or your neighbour's house.
Not quite content with planting the mother-of-all V8s into the chassis, Noah set about installing a Borla Stack Injection pack and Holley Performance Engine Management System. Furthermore, an MSD ignition coil and Magndaflow Custom Exhaust were also added.
With all that grunt, larger brakes were required; bringing Wilwood Disc Brakes into play ensuring a complete stop from silly speeds.
It’s not all mechanical modifications undertaken on the Ford, however. Inside the cabin has been lavished with immense upgrades, including a Billet Specialties Steering Wheel, custom CCS Rollbar, Relicate Leather and a Kicker Audio System incorporating Q-Series Speakers. That’s not all, however. Using custom Speedhut Gauges, the dials are replicated from another Ford hero – the GT.
On the outside are custom front wheel wells, B-Forged Wheels (20x8.5 Fronts 20x12 Rears)and a custom sheet metal bed and wheel tubs, along with a slick paint job.
As a machine, this Ford ticks all the boxes, and the ideal that a deserving veteran received the F100 on steroids is ultimately befitting. You can catch up with Speed is the New Black here.
