Innovating Classics Since 2012

Velocity’s Roots

Velocity was founded as a simple restoration shop in 2012 by Stuart Wilson, a Pensacola native and serial entrepreneur. Stuart purchased his first Classic Ford Bronco, when he was a Submariner in the U.S. Navy, and while it was intended to be a vehicle for family adventures, it ended up suffering the same fate as many classics: a frustrating project.

After completion of his military service in 2009, he moved back to Pensacola where he quickly worked his way up to being the plant manager of a wire manufacturing company. His experiences in the Navy, manufacturing, and managing his own Bronco project set the stage for what would later become Velocity’s current hand-built production process.

In 2012, the Vintage Bronco was finally finished and was sold to immediately fund the purchase of another Bronco, beginning Velocity Restorations. Seeing the potential in the market he went out on his own and began in a small 250 sq/ft shop. Within six months, Velocity had already outgrown its first workshop, and over the next decade it continued to grow into an award-winning custom restoration shop.

Over the years “full build” Classic Ford Broncos and classic SUVs became the majority of Velocity’s business, becoming a respected shop in a variety of restorations. However, one off restorations also were filled with their own problems including unknowns of the donor vehicles, hundreds of decisions, extended timelines, and costs that couldn’t be controlled.

Combining Stuart’s extensive knowledge of manufacturing processes with lessons learned from building Broncos over the life of the business, the Velocity Signature Series Bronco was production process was born. This unique hand-built process allowed for the creation of authentic, bespoke Broncos with timeliness, efficiency, and the highest grade of engineering possible that was unmatched in the industry. Gone were the unknowns and replaced with fixed prices, reduced timelines, higher quality control, and an elevated customer experience.

The Velocity Difference

Velocity now is housed in a 135,000 sq/ft facility that features a 100% vertically integrated production process allowing us to build hundreds of custom vintage automobiles each year. In addition to the Bronco, Velocity has expanded its model lineup to include some of the best classic vehicles from the ‘60s and ‘70s such as the Ford F-Series, Ford Mustang, Chevrolet K5 Blazer, with more models coming in the future.

Velocity has transformed the restomod landscape and continues to redefine what it means to drive and own a classic vehicle. Today, each Velocity build combines the nostalgia and authenticity of a classic with the everyday comfort and reliability of a modern vehicle, and, more importantly, we continue to deliver precise build-out dates, pricing, and packages. We’ve made it a mission to make it easier than ever to own a modernized classic vehicle, and it’s our passion to keep the important heritage of America’s classic vehicle roots at the forefront of its builds.
