Here at Autoblog, most of us have cars that “got away.” For me, there are a few, but one that stands out was an immaculate 1995 Ford F-150 in a gorgeous purple. Purple? Yes, purple. And if you had seen it, you wouldn’t judge. While I would’ve loved to own that pickup and spend my weekends driving it to Rocky Mountain trailheads, it wasn’t meant to be. But even with how cool that truck was, it doesn’t hold a candle to this custom 1969 Ford F-100 that Omaze is giving away.
Here are the specs of the restored 1969 Ford F-100 in question, according to Omaze:

- Exterior Color: Royal Maroon and White
- Interior Color: Whiskey Brown
- Maximum Horsepower: 460 hp
- Maximum Torque: 420 lb-ft
- Approximate Retail Value: $207,000
- Cash Alt: $155,250
- Special Features: Whiskey distressed leather interior on seats, headliner, dash and visors; 18” vintage-style billet wheels; 33” BF Goodrich tires; Bluetooth stereo; barn wood bed and tailgate; GT350-inspired wood steering wheel; power-retractable side steps; 4.5” lift; Currie® 9” rear differential; Borla® exhaust; Wilwood 4-wheel disc brakes with hydroboost; LED lighting throughout; power windows and air conditioning; 3-point seatbelts.
I’m not the only one on the Autoblog staff who thinks this restoration is worthy of a little praise. Editor-in-Chief Greg Migliore picked it above all the other current Omaze offerings for our holiday staff picks post. Here’s what he had to say:
“I would go with the custom 1969 Ford F-100. This example is a nice blend of modern power — the Coyote V8 is under the hood — and old-school charm. The two-tone paint and the distressed whiskey-colored seats really set the era. There’s plenty of new features, like LED lights and even some hot-rodding touches, like the Borla exhaust. Older Ford trucks are finally getting some mainstream attention, as evidenced by the ’78 Eluminator concept from SEMA, and it’s deserved. This one benefits Kevin Bacon’s charity, and I randomly just watched the 1992 Aaron Sorkin film “A Few Good Men,” in which Bacon, Demi Moore, Tom Cruise, Jack Nicholson and seemingly every other actor from the 1990s and 2000s appears.”
