This truck is all original like it came off the line in 1955. It is fully restored with a 3 on the tree transmission. The truck has been in the family for over 50 years. My dad  bought this truck from a buddy in the 70's. He used it as his work truck and then he used it to haul coal and wood to keep us warm in the winter time. My parents would take it to the local IGA to pick up groceries. In the mid-90's he had it restored by a friend that did restoration in a ... read more >>

My truck story began when a good friend of mine asked me if I’d like to purchase his great-grandfather's 1984 F-150 that his grandfather passed down to him when he died. I knew it was a fixer upper when I bought her but I knew in the long run it’d be worth all of it. When I bought the truck it was overheating, skipping, shifting very hard, and only ran on 4 cylinders! So three months down the road after shaving the head, getting a new carburetor, new radiator, dual headers and dual exhaust with thrush mufflers, she is ... read more >>

Cream Puff, the 1977 Ford F-150, joined the Wilson family from an Asheville, NC, Food Lion. Matt, my father, passed the all original farm truck sitting in the grocer parking lot thinking it would be irrational to buy it. To ease his mind, he told himself he would return later the next day, and only then he permitted himself to look at it. The next day, I saw my parents returning from the store with my father driving the truck and I instantly fell in love with it. Not long after the purchase, my father found a new job ... read more >>

I purchased this truck in August 2017 with 13,643 actual miles. It has the 351M and auto transmission with power steering and has the Explorer package. The original owner passed away in 1985 and the truck has been stored inside since. A friend of mine, a strong GM guy, and his wife bought it in 2003. He repaired the brakes but she was not comfortable with the thought of driving it, so he parked it without ever putting it on the road. It took me four years of prodding to persuade them to sell it. It has the original ... read more >>

1964 Ford F-100 – Jim M.

July 5, 2018 | Tags:

    I was driving down the road 21 years ago and spotted this 1964 Ford pickup. To me it looked like an orphan needing a home. So I checked on it and closed the deal. It was the last year I was single and I married my high school sweetheart in 1965. So it has a lot of memories for us. With the help of a few friends and LMC we put it back on the road. Now I have two long time girls in my life. Thanks to LMC it's fun driving again.

    My grandfather bought this truck in 1987 to replace his Chevrolet Celebrity. He always said, "if you take care of your truck, it will take care of you." My grandfather was a stickler about maintenance on his vehicles and this truck was no exception. He regularly changed fluids, packed bearings, changed filters, etc., and his maintenance shows through to this day. When my grandfather passed in 2010, the truck was passed on to my cousins to drive back and forth to school. This truck served my oldest cousin until he graduated high school then was passed on to his ... read more >>

    The truck was purchased used by my grandfather in 1954 to be used at his property south of town which became a gathering place for many memorable events by our family and friends. My grandfather named the place “Hickory Sticks” because of the many hickory trees on the property. As a young boy I would go with my grandfather on Saturday mornings to "Hickory Sticks" to work, which consisted of clearing brush, mowing, painting or building things. We always went in the truck and as I got older he would let me drive it on the property and later, ... read more >>

    Growing up in Indiana, my parents had our "Brown Truck," a 1978 F-150 custom 4x4. I had many fond memories of camping trips and family time going places in that truck. Over the years, life happened and the truck fell into disrepair, only to be used to haul equipment around the property. By the time I was old enough to do anything with it, the floors, doors, and wheel wells were all rusted out. I couldn't afford to fix it and ended up selling it for scrap. Fast forward to 2014. I was a young adult living in Texas, ... read more >>
