In February of 1972, I was honorably discharged from the United States Army and when I arrived home, I saw a brand new Ford pick-up in the garage at the home place. My Stepfather had just purchased the truck and drove it until 1993. As he aged, his strength began diminishing and finally, he was unable to turn the steering wheel since it was not equipped with power steering. He asked me if I wanted the truck and I said, "yes" without hesitation. The truck was now my truck, with 49,000 actual miles, being fully stock. I drove the ... read more >>

My name is Jill, and I'm Todd K.'s daughter and this is his truck story. This truck had been in our family for many years now, my grandfather Wayne bought this truck brand new in 1979. This was his daily driver to work everyday to and from the cheese factory in Winchester, Ontario. He always talked about how he loved that truck and how it was a very reliable truck for him all those years he drove it. Although he loved the 79 it was time for him to get a newer truck so he went out and bought ... read more >>

1973 Ford Bronco – Kenny R.

    I purchased this Bronco new in 1973 from Gamel Ford in Aurora Missouri. It has made many hunting trips to Colorado over the years. It was at the river almost every weekend during the summer months. I have always taken great steps to take care of it and your company has helped me with that. All the parts that I’ve purchased from LMC have been top notch and have worked perfect. There have been so many wonderful memories that I have made in my Bronco and at 71, I’m still making many more! Thank you for your high quality ... read more >>

    1972 Ford F-250 – Gavin M.

      After getting a 7.3idi diesel motor I wanted a solid old truck to swap it into and drive daily. I've always wanted a highboy but living in the salt belt in Belleville Ontario old trucks are hard to find, this is why I took to Kijiji. I bought a truck from Star City Saskatchewan and hitched a ride with my sister in law as she passed through on her way to Banff to pick it up. The real story begins here, The truck I had bought sight unseen on only a few pictures was not all it was cracked ... read more >>

      My brother bought this truck from the original owner in the late 90’s and didn’t do much to it but drive it until he sold it to my son in 2006. It is an XLT Lariat with AC, PW, PL, PS, PB and cruise. Original AM/FM Cassette. All in working condition. We did a slow roll resto on it for several years. New interior, paint and engine were the major stuff. Added an Edelbrock intake, Holley 4 bbl, mild cam and Hooker headers along with a new stainless exhaust when replacing the engine. Its been a labor of love ... read more >>

      This truck was sold in Kennewick, Washington 53 years ago and then some how ended up in San Jose were it was towed from the side of the road by my grandpa.

      1979 Ford F-100 Ranger – Chad H.

        This is my 1979 F100 Ranger. Dad bought it in 1980 when it was practically new. It’s what I learned to drive in the late 80’s. Although it had always been in the family, I didn’t actually own it till 2015. It got its name “Pete” from mom, who had a nickname for all of their vehicles, so I thought I would just dedicate this build in her memory. Here it is almost 40 years later and nearly 3 years of work. It had all the typical rust issues that these trucks have and the paint was old and ... read more >>
