Enjoy the photo gallery on this Supercharged Restomod Mustang!

This isn’t your average classic car restoration story. This is about a beloved piece of history, a 1951 Ford F1 pickup truck with a unique past and an exciting future. And the V8 Speed and Resto Shop is honored to be a part of its journey.

The truck, affectionately nicknamed the “firetruck” by its owners, Bloomsdale Excavating, has been with the company “forever.” It sat proudly in their museum, a cherished reminder of their rich history. But now, the time had come for this classic to shine once again. They wanted to bring it out of retirement and give it a new purpose: gracing parades and community events.

That’s where owner Dean and the V8 Speed and Resto Shop stepped in. Recognizing the truck’s significance, the team was eager to help. While the F1 didn’t need a full restoration, it did require some TLC. The paint needed a touch-up, and the electrical system needed rewiring to ensure safe and reliable operation.

For V8 Speed and Resto Shop, it wasn’t just about fixing a truck; it was about preserving a piece of history and reviving a community treasure. They meticulously addressed the paint and electrical issues, ensuring the F1 would be ready to handle the demands of parades and events.

This project is more than just a restoration; it’s a story of community, family, and shared history. Soon, the “firetruck” will once again be a source of pride for Bloomsdale Excavating and a delight for the community. And V8 Speed and Resto Shop is proud to have played a role in bringing this iconic truck back to life.

Stay tuned for updates as we share more about this special project! You might even see the F1 shining bright in a parade near you.

“This Week in Classic Cars” is a radio show covering classic and muscle car restoration and performance topics, and it airs weekly on KTRS 550am Radio in St. Louis. The show recently added V8 Speed and Resto Shop’s Kevin Oeste to the line up, joining host Josh Gilbert and Jeff Homsher, Owner of It’s Alive Automotive. Tune in each Sunday at 1pm for the latest episode!

1967 Pontiac GTO: From Swamp Thing to Showstopper

This 1967 Pontiac GTO wasn’t always the head-turning classic it is today. When it arrived at V8 Speed & Resto Shop, it was a far cry from its former glory. Rusted and neglected, it more closely resembled a “swamp thing” than a muscle car. However, our team of experts wasn’t fazed by the challenge. We were determined to transform this relic into a showstopper!

A Complete Frame-Off Restoration

Our restoration process for this 1967 GTO was a complete teardown, or “frame-off” restoration. This meticulous approach ensures that no area of the car is overlooked. Here’s a closer look at some of the key improvements we made:

  • Chassis Strengthening: The GTO’s chassis received a thorough inspection and repairs were made to the body mounts and other critical areas. We then applied a protective epoxy primer and industrial-grade paint finish.
  • Suspension Upgrade: We replaced the original suspension system with a high-performance tubular setup from BMR Fabrication. This upgrade enhances handling and performance without sacrificing a comfortable ride.
  • Bodywork and Paint: The GTO’s body was media blasted to remove rust and imperfections. Our fabrication team then replaced rusted panels, repaired the dashboard, and built a custom firewall. Once the body repairs were complete, the car was painted in its original Tyrol Blue with a stunning two-stage finish.

Taking the Interior Up a Notch

The interior of the GTO wasn’t spared our restoration magic. Our team reupholstered the bucket seats and refurbished the door panels, dashboard, headliner, and carpet. We also added some modern touches, like a new sound system from Custom Autosound and Dakota Digital gauges.

The Finishing Touches

The final step involved installing a Magnaflow stainless steel exhaust system to unleash the power of the Pontiac 400 V8 engine. New wheels and tires completed the transformation, giving the GTO a truly aggressive look.

A Near-Perfect Score and a Dream Realized

The culmination of our hard work was presenting the finished GTO to its owner at the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals show in Chicago. The car was a huge hit, scoring a near-perfect 997 points in the Street Modified class!
