Like so many others, I set out on a quest to buy back a truck like my first truck, a '72 Chevy. I bought my original '72 from my first cousin. He brought my aunt to visit my mom and when he pulled up in the drive in that black '72 I immediately loved it. Even though I was only 15 at the time and had no money or even my driver's license for that matter, I told him to please call me when he was ready to sell it. About a year and half later he called and ... read more >>

My family has been in the used auto parts business for over 35 years, buying core engines and transmissions for the rebuilding industry. So let’s just say it was in my blood to have a 350 engine one day. This truck was bought by my Uncle Joe about 10 years ago in Daytona, Florida, where he spent his winters after retiring from the family business that he once owned. During those 10 years he tinkered with this truck every winter. 90% of the truck was redone from top to bottom. During the summer months when he would come home ... read more >>

1977 GMC Sierra Grande C15 – Bane N.

Truck was originally purchased by my Grandfather back in 77. My dad inherited the truck a few years back and drove it from California to Alabama. Made it all the way with no issues other than a clogged cat and new tires during the trip. My dad had it repainted, keeping the original colors. I inherited the GMC about 9 months ago after my dad passed. The truck is really in great shape overall and runs well. I have plans to do a few things but plan to keep it original for the most part. Since I started driving ... read more >>

Ever since I was 8 years old when I visited my grandma with my dad, I looked forward to getting to take country drives with him down dirt roads in the "Missouri Truck." Even as a young boy I knew I wanted to keep that truck in my family and restore it to an even better state than when it rolled off the assembly line in 1965. My great-grandpa Allen purchased two vehicles brand new in his lifetime, a 1920 Model T Roadster, and a 1965 Chevrolet C10 fleetside short bed in Shelbina, MO. The "Missouri Truck" has done ... read more >>

My father and I have always been motor-heads and he has taught me everything I know about vehicles. He and I built a 1969 Chevelle a couple years back. In 2012 I turned 14 years old and that's when my father started talking to me about what vehicle I wanted to drive when I turned 16. Naturally, I started looking online as soon as he said that- this was my chance to find exactly what I wanted. My father was also sure to tell me that if I wanted to build something we could do that, too. I would ... read more >>

My 1967 Chevy Truck Story When I was 16 my first car was a 1967 CST cab large window short bed C10 fleet side. With straight 6, and 3 on the tree. I turned 16 in April 1985, and we purchased the truck for $250.00. I had saved up $220.00 and my mom helped me with the rest. A great family friend, Doug Donaldson, brought it to his house and said, " you aren't driving it until we paint it." I spent the entire summer sanding it. Doug brought it and me to a frame shop in Reno, Nevada, ... read more >>

Purchased this Arkansas truck from the original family. It had been passed down from uncle to father to son and was no longer being used. I was unable to find anyone to do a badly needed paint job at what I felt was a reasonable price, so I signed up for a tech school's Auto Body class with intentions of having it painted within a couple of weeks. After weeks of hand sanding, I discovered it was much more work than I expected. To keep a long story short, I got some help from some other students and spent ... read more >>

This 1964 Chevy C10 is my first truck project. The truck spent most of its life on Wolf Island on the Saint Lawrence River near Kingston, Ontario. Then it was bought by a used car dealer who ended up using it at his cottage for five years and listed it on a local ad. I saw it and bought it right away. My plan was to clean a few things up on it and have a little fun with it. Well, I kinda lost control and did everything amounting to a complete frame off. I put in a 383 ... read more >>

I bought my 1984 GMC Jimmy from the original owner in Idaho with 76,000 miles on it. After owning four of them in my life and either building mud racers or trail trucks out of them, this one was way too nice for anything like that. It was in really great shape with zero rust and the interior was as good as 1984. The engine had slight upgrades with vortex heads, Edelbrock intake, full headers and dual exhaust. It still has the 700R transmission as well as 373 gears and power everything that all works like new. I thought ... read more >>

My grandfather gave me this 1984 Chevy C10 Silverado on my 16th birthday in 2014. It was all beaten up, the interior was ruined, it didn't run. You could say it was a nightmare of a project. But I wasn't scared to take it on. I rebuilt the motor with a new 4 barrel Edelbrock carb and Edelbrock torque camshaft and a few other things. I'm almost done with the interior and I've been driving her as my daily ever since. I buy all my body parts and interior parts from LMC Truck. My goal is to fully restore her ... read more >>

I bought my truck 19 years ago. The frame was already powder coated red but the rest was up to me. With just a cab, no front pieces or electrical wiring, no motor or transmission, I went on the hunt to restore my new purchase. I bought a donor truck for the brake system, wiring and a good transmission. I then got a crate 350 motor from my son-in-law. I put in a '72 front cross member with disc brakes and a 3.73 rear end making all four wheels 5 lug. I had my truck on the road in ... read more >>

I purchased the truck for my youngest son when he was 16. He drove it through high school and college, but he wrecked it after college and I just put it out to pasture, so to speak. I wanted to put a bed on it and throw some paint on it and keep it for a back up, but then I started ordering parts from LMC and things just got out of hand. Now I have something to give my granddaughter when she turns 16. She does let me play with it from time to time and we take ... read more >>
