We’ve come to expect some bonkers builds from Hennessey Performance. Lest we forget, this is a company that showed us a 6x6 Chevy Silverado, and most recently unveiled a Jeep Trackhawk that’s as fast in the quarter-mile as a Dodge Challenger Demon. Now we have this retro-inspired Ford F-150, but the inspiration doesn’t come from an old truck. It comes from the LeMans winning 1967 Ford GT40. The result is this – the 2019 Hennessey Heritage F-150.
Obviously the defining feature of this rig is its arrest-me-red finish with white racing stripes. The design is a dead ringer for the Mk IV GT40 driven by racing legends Dan Gurney and A.J. Foyt, right down to the number one on the door. Granted, the GT40 didn’t have Hennessey branding, nor an extra set of doors or the ability to carry a wet bar with several kegs of beer. Such attributes don’t lend themselves well to lapping Circuit de la Sarthe, but this big pickup isn’t without some performance chops.
In fact, the Heritage F-150 would give the old GT40 a helluva fight in a straight line. Under the hood is Ford’s 5.0-liter V8, which Hennessey then massages to 758 horsepower (565 kilowatts) courtesy of an upgraded intake and exhaust, reworked fuel system, and of course a whopping big supercharger. If you want to try and chase GT40s through the curves, Hennessey will also add a sport suspension that drops the truck and adds beefy sway bars, not to mention six-piston brakes and 22-inch wheels with sticky rubber. We doubt you’d challenge a GT40 of any vintage in the bends, but you’d probably have all kinds of fun trying.
For those seeking off-road action, Hennessey will accommodate you as well. A 2.5-inch suspension leveling kit with 20-inch wheels and 33-inch off-road tires should get you where you need to go. The big brake kit is also available for the off-roader.
The F-150 isn't the only heritage machine at Hennessey that harks back to the 1967 LeMans victory. It joins a 2019 Mustang GT, 2018 Ford GT, and 2005 Ford GT – all of which wear a red suit identical to the original GT40. We must say, it does make for some great photo ops.
As with pretty much every special-edition Hennessey creation, production will be very limited. Just 19 Heritage F-150s are planned, with prices starting at $94,950.

HENNESSEY HERITAGE F-150 COMPLETES THE HERITAGE FAMILY
A Supercharged 750 Horsepower American Icon that can be Configured as a Sport Truck or Off-Road Truck
Sealy, Texas (October 18, 2018)— In 1967 Ford had their second consecutive victory in the 24 Hours of Lemans. The champions, Dan Gurney and A.J. Foyt, were in the unforgettable Ford GT MK IV. The winning car wore a race red exterior with a white racing stripe livery. To this day, it is one of the most famous heritage racing liveries in existence. It is with great pride, that Hennessey Performance looks to carry on the Heritage history by unveiling the final vehicle in the Hennessey Heritage lineup, a supercharged 750 horsepower Ford F-150 that wears the same 1967 Ford Lemans racing livery.
The 2019 Hennessey Heritage F-150 joins the Heritage family and now sits next to Hennessey’s 2005 Ford GT, 2018 Ford GT Heritage Edition, and the 2019 Hennessey Heritage Mustang. The team takes the factory 5.0L V8 engine in the F-150 and adds a 2.9L supercharger, high-flow air intake, catback exhaust system, and upgraded fuel system components under the hood to take the truck’s power to an impressive 758 hp and 660 lb-ft of torque. The Hennessey Heritage F-150 is configurable in either a sport truck (lowered) or an off-road ready (lifted) set up making the truck perfect for the driving experience of your choice.
“The 1966-1969 24 Hours of Lemans victories by Ford are some of the most momentous races in history,” said company founder & CEO, John Hennessey. “After taking delivery of the 2018 Heritage Edition Ford GT, our team saw an opportunity to further honor the hard work, perseverance, and dedication that the 1967 Heritage livery represents. We now feel that the Heritage lineup is complete, and there is a vehicle available for any kind of driver and/or any kind of driving experience – whether it be off-road, track, or casual daily driving.”
The Hennessey Heritage F-150 in the sport configuration includes a full suspension lowering kit, front sway bars, a front 6-piston performance brake upgrade, 22” performance wheels and tires and custom red/white livery decals. In the off-road configuration, the truck includes a 2.5” front suspension leveling kit, 20” 10-spoke off-road wheels with 33” Toyo off-road tires and the custom red/white livery graphics. A 6-piston front performance brake upgrade is available by request for the off-road configuration.
The starting price for the 2019 Hennessey Heritage F-150 is $94,950, which includes a new 2019 Ford Platinum F-150 Crewcab. Production is limited to just 19 units and the vehicle is available for export to international markets. The Hennessey Heritage F-150 as well as other Hennessey Ford builds are available directly from Hennessey or from select Authorized Hennessey Performance Ford dealers.
