As a kid, I was raised working on cars and truck. Spent many days under a hood, under a car, working or handing tools to my Dad. Working on cars with my friends became a passion for most of us. I joined the Navy in 1985, traveled, moved, got married, raised a family in my 24 year career, always saying that some day I'll have another car or truck that I can work on, make it mine and drive it to shows, or just a cruise with my wife sitting next to me. Once I retired from the military, ... read more >>

Growing up, my Dad always had a truck. I was a truck guy before I could walk. As I got older, I really started to fall in love with the old school Ford's of the 1970's. It started with all my Big Foot monster trucks. This set up a dream-come-true opportunity for me. It all started three years ago, as I was heading to work. I could see an old truck for sale on the side of the road up ahead. It just kept getting cooler, the closer I got. It was a 70's Ford and I had to ... read more >>

Purchased brand new in 1979. Within the last few years, I've upgraded to a 4 barrel intake with custom exhaust, everything else is original. Always used as a work truck but not as much these days. Favorite time spent is behind the wheel, driving over into the country near my ole homeplace, traveling along the dirt roads, revisiting memory lane, and stopping to visit for a spell with some family and friends reminiscing about the good ole days. Also enjoy driving with my granddaughter and great-granddaughter in the cab with our fishing poles in the back. It's been a ... read more >>

My 1982 Ford F-100 was given to me by my father. He bought the truck brand new in 1982. After having a few health issues he was unable to drive any more. So after sitting for several years the truck had a lot of work that needed to be done. The original color was red and maroon with black interior. This restoration took me nine years. It could have never gotten done without LMC. From lights to bumpers to steering wheels to mirrors and handles, LMC had everything I needed. Thanks LMC for helping me restore my father's truck! ... read more >>

This truck was purchased new by my dad in the fall of 1989. Custom ordered and his first Ford. Being a self-employed sign painter and pinstriper, naturally the truck was used as his advertisement. The hand-done pinstriping was done down the sides, bug deflector, and tailgate. A bed cap was installed and lettered. The hubcaps were replaced with Alcoa stainless simulators. In 1992 with a 4th child on the way, his beloved captain's chairs and center console were removed in place of custom seats with a drop-down center seat. Other than that, the truck remained fairly stock and meticulously ... read more >>

I owned a small tool and die shop, “Liberty Machine and Tool,” and we were in business for twenty years. In 2013 I bought a 1968 F-100 and started to restore it but an electrical fire destroyed everything. The truck was in a part of the building that didn’t get too hot so I decided to go ahead with it. I took it apart to the last nut and bolt and sandblasted it down to bare metal then built it back from the ground up. The motor is a 390 bored and stroked to a 443, with 650 hp ... read more >>

Marvin and Jackie S. are the proud owners of a 1968 Ford F-350 known as The Blue Mule. The truck was first purchased from a farmer in Hackberry, Arizona, in 1989. Being a farm truck, it was used to haul hay, wood, rocks, etc. It had a broken windshield, body dents, rusted & split rims, and the wood on the truck bed was all busted and rotted out. Trash, mud & hay was all throughout the cab and it had about 6 lbs of hay underneath the worn out bench seat. All in all it was in very VERY ... read more >>

I bought my truck 3 years ago and it was about 80 percent completed. I was very concerned about getting parts for such an old truck. The guy who sold me the truck told me not to worry. He said, "LMC Truck has everything for this truck." He even gave me a folder with many receipts from installed parts, like tinted glass and weather stripping, door handles, bumpers and tailgate, etc. After seeing this and checking the website out I found the confidence to buy my first classic truck. I stopped at the Local Ford dealership one day and ... read more >>
