1982 Ford F250 – Rod Y.

November 21, 2019 | Tags: FD

Oh Brother! This re-build started innocently when my brother suggested I "check a few things" on a work truck he recently purchased as a second vehicle. It started life as a 1982 F250 4x4 and someone added a Thiele dumpbed and dual rear wheels. It didn't take long before we both realized he could've selected a better starting point. The truck he initially bought was riddled with electrical issues, abused structurally from many years pushing a snow plow, and also suffered from the usual rust & corrosion so common from our northeast winter salt roads. Early on we decided ... read more >>

2001 Ford F150 Lightning – Charles L.

| Tags: FE

My Lightning I had recently traded my 2013 F150 in for a 2016 Taurus SHO, as time went by I realized I missed the ability to run errands and just throw things in the back of my truck, or to take the ATV to the repair shop. I then started looking for a project truck that I could use for my weekend needs and fulfill my desire to be restoring a vehicle. I came across the Lightning on the internet and it was near by, the drawback was it had 165K miles so I knew it would need some ... read more >>

1982 Ford F100 – Alfonso T.

| Tags: FD

This truck was purchased in 1984 by the grandfather of my ex wife and I bought it in 2012. Having been in her family for 28 years, I was asked to modify it inside and out. It was a motor 5.0 transmission and differential of a 2000 mustang.

1969 Ford F100 – John N.

November 20, 2019 | Tags: FB

The truck was used as a pilot truck for a mobile home moving business in west Texas. I trailered it to my home in Alabama in 2017 and began restoration. I took the truck down to the last bolt with the intent to keep the truck as original as possible. I was able to keep the original inline 6 240 c.i. motor and the "3 on the tree" manual transmission. However, I added power front disc brakes for added safety. And because acceptable replacement exhaust and intake manifolds proved very difficult to find, I installed headers and a modern ... read more >>

1974 Ford F250 – Ted H.

| Tags: FC

I ordered this truck new from Ford in 1973. It arrived in November of 73 as a 1974 year model. It came as a 360 4 speed, Ranger model. With help I did a complete body off restoration, and an engine rebuild a couple of years ago, putting a 390 crank in the original block. It has been a great truck the last 46 years and runs even better now with the refreshed engine and the added cubic inches. I cant imagine not having this bad boy to drive around. I don’t think that I can replace it with ... read more >>

1978 Ford F150- Keith T.

14 going on 50 I previously told this story but felt I needed to update this with some updated pictures since completion of the project. The very first vehicle I ever owned was a 1978 F 150 2WD four speed manual transmission. It was an oilfield truck that had been used hard in the Texas Panhandle. I paid $50 for that truck and loved every minute of owning it. Fast forward to 2018. I was driving through Cave Creek, AZ and happened to see sitting in the parking lot of a local diner a 1978 F 150 with a ... read more >>

1948 Ford F100 – Dennis C.

November 18, 2019 | Tags: FA

I've been watching this heavily modified 1948 Ford at local car shows and featured in a magazine for years. Then it disappeared. When I found out where it was and that it may be for sale I jumped on it.  Sitting uncovered under an open carport this once former enviable work of art had deteriorated over the past 20 plus years. It sat on flat tires and was covered in a quarter inch of dust , bird droppings and dirt. We made a deal, I had it towed to a shop to get it roadworthy and proudly drove it ... read more >>

1973 Ford F100 – Jerry J.

| Tags: FC

This story starts out as an IOU for my birthday from my wife that was in my birthday card. Little did she know that that IOU would be the purchase of this "Grandpa Truck" she calls it. One day in the summer of 2006 I was making some sales calls and came across this 73 Ford F-100 4x4 with a 360 and automatic for $1,000.00 . I'll give you some past history as to why I wanted another 70's era pickup. I had purchased my first Ford pick up when I was in the Navy in 1985 and it ... read more >>
