Ford dealer gives your 2021 F-150 retro two-tone paint
Beechmont Ford package features some other 1980s fashion accessories

AutoBlog

For those who came of age in the 1980s, the quintessential Ford F-150 pickup was two-tone. That look came with a base color of red or blue (though teal would have been acceptable), and white flanks. Now that cars are all boringly painted, it's refreshing to see that a dealership is out to re-create that 1980s F-150 look with brand new 2021 F-150 trucks.

The so-called BFP Retro F-150 comes from Cincinnati-area dealer Beechmont Ford. It's not an official Dearborn creation, but was obviously done in 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 brightwork that those come with.

To that, the dealer and adds a Satin Pearl wrap to give it the two-tone look, though Beechmont says that a paint option is available as well. Further retro touches include a chrome bed rack fitted with KC Daylighter lights and 17-inch chrome wheels wrapped in 35-inch BF Goodrich white-lettered all-terrain tires. Finally, a 3.5-inch lift rounds out the package.

Beechmont requires a $500 deposit, but the total package cost depends on the options chosen, such as a Roush cat-back exhaust, and the base truck. Right now, Beechmont says it's experiencing a six- to seven-month wait time due to delays with production (likely the microchip shortage).

The current F-150 color palette isn't the most exciting — several shades of gray, black, white, two very similar blues, two reds, and a dark green. The Retro F-150 strikes us as a tidy package to liven up your truck that doesn't scream brodozer.

I like it. But I'm over 50 so I think I'm biased. Had a shotgun perched in the rear window when that was allowed. Anyone remember that?

Too bad you can't jump the microchip line by getting a manual transmission carbureted truck! That would be truly retro!
Don’t- I repeat—-DON’T tease me!!!
this automatic trans crap takes some serious getting used to.
had to fire up the k1500 today, kinda missing the wiggly stick

I hope they consider retrofitting the seats with that godawful vinyl from the 80's as well.

There was nothing like tearing off half of your skin on a hot summers' day as your legs welded themselves to the bench seat! 🤪

Yep, I remember when I was growing up dad had one of those gun racks. Every year when it was hunting season or target practice time he had his rifles up there. Great memories.

See, now where can we get those bfgs with the white lettering? Seems like if you have 20” wheels then you’re out of luck as far as getting 34” tires with white bfg lettering.

Ah yes the good old days. Had a 81 F150 flare side in black with the pearl white and a sliding rear window. Inline 300 six with manual trans stick and 4x4. Had it converted to run on propane rather than gas. Also added a slide in camper in the back for summers. Needed and extra leaf in the back to level it out. It went many off road places that today’s trucks would never go.
