1982 Ford F100- Don D.

January 15, 2019 | Tags:

    Before I got this 82 Ford, it was my mom’s truck. Her best friend had bought it new, but when she passed away, my mom got it. I went to visit her one summer and was doing some work around the house and noticed the truck had a tarp over the bed and was full of branches. I told her I needed to take the load to the dump. When I got to the dump, I could smell the load and realized it was composting! I told her later she can’t let stuff sit in the bed that long. She ... read more >>

      My dad bought this truck new in 1979. My sister and I went to pick it up and she wrote the check and I drove it home. Lots of good stories to be told about this truck. My dad was going to sell it several years ago and I just could not let that happen so I went to get it. It sat in my shop for several years and about a year and a half ago I decided it was time to get it back on the road. I rebuilt the engine, transmission and replaced the interior. The body ... read more >>

      A father/daughter project on a 1959 Ford barn find. Daughter wanted an old truck for high school graduation present. Together we stripped it to the frame, found and built engine and transmission, while keeping the stock rear axle. Put it together, painted and did all the work ourselves. Total time to build was about 14 months, she drove it to school for the last 3 months of high school, then to college.

        Found this 1988 Ford F-150 about one year ago out in a corn field by an old barn. It had an old military canvas with hay bails covering it up. Truck only had 48,896 original miles on the speedometer. Old man had parked it by the barn due to his on going health conditions. He had passed away back in 2008 and his wife just got around to begin selling his tools and farming equipment. I had done some work at a cell tower site and went to the home nearest to its location and inquired on the ownership. ... read more >>

        Just Chillin' Billy Jr and his 78 Ford F150 Ranger Well I always wanted a 70's model ford truck to refurbish. So in 2017 I found one that I liked, this old truck was brown with yellow and orange stripes. It was in need of some work to get it to where I wanted it to be, so we went back with stock 302 with holley four barrel and rebuilt the automatic transmission. I replaced almost all the parts on this truck and when I say almost all the parts that is what I mean. LMC I just wanted to ... read more >>

        I am the 4th owner of the truck. I don’t know much about the truck other than I bought it off an older couple with only 92,000 miles. I bought it for $1700 not bad for the year, condition, and miles but there is some rust. Plans are on the way to restore it and already started. I will post more details as I go.

        I bought my F-150 from the owners of the company I worked for when it was 2 years old. I drove it daily and as it started to age I began making repairs. One thing led to another and I decided to go all out in 2016. I had a crate engine installed, 351 Cobra, a crate tranny, then found a great body guy. He had it 8 weeks, installed fenders, doors, almost everything exterior all from LMC. The bed was shipped from Texas and was pristine. I’m a huge Ohio State fan, so I chose Buckeye colors. I ... read more >>
