Gateway Bronco to Restore Classic F-Series Pickups

Gateway Bronco will begin rolling out “reimagined” 1967-1972 Ford F-Series trucks in the second quarter of 2020, the Hamel, Illinois, custom and resto-mod shop announced, as Ford Motor Company has licensed Gateway to transform F-100, F-150 and F-250 trucks using modern supercharged drivetrains, suspensions and amenities.

Like the SUVs from Gateway Bronco, the “Resto-Mod” F-Series Ford trucks will start with an original street legal truck before the Gateway Bronco team then integrates a host of upgrades, including:

  • A naturally aspirated Generation 3 Ford 5.0-liter V8 and 10-speed automatic transmission
  • Push button 4×4 control, similar to a modern truck
  • Powder coated custom designed 4-link chassis
  • Push button Active Control Exhaust for any exhaust note desired, on demand
  • Rugged leather interiors including American Bison, hair on hide or distressed bench seats
  • Genuine barn wood bed

Options include:

  • A 7.3-liter Ford V8 with twin turbos or Harrop USA supercharger with Eaton TVS Technology
  • A Harrop USA supercharger, featuring Eaton TVS Technology, offering up to 700 hp
  • An Eaton Performance differential package, featuring an Eaton ELocker front differential and a Detroit Truetrac rear differential for the ultimate traction performance
