1979 Ford Bronco – Carl H.

November 20, 2020 | Tags: FC

79 Bronco Life My first vehicle was an 80 Bronco, but I always wanted a 79 . Picked this jewel up 15 months ago and completely restore it with the help of a few great friends. The only thing I didn’t do myself was the seats and interior panels. My step dad growing up had one and I was hooked. This has a lot of sentimental value to me along with the pride of doing it all and having my hands on every piece of it .

1979 Ford F150 – Mark V.

I bought this 1979 Ford F-250 from a local salvage yard in 1985. The truck was bought from an auction by the salvage yard. It was mechanically sound but the body was in bad shape. These old trucks were plentiful in my area so I was able to scrape together some body parts to make it whole again, although that made it several different colors. I used it for many years on the farm as an extra work vehicle. In 2019 I decided to restore it because it was too good of a truck to let it go to ... read more >>

Build for Dad When I was around 15 me and my Dad worked on this truck together. Not knowing how it would always stay with me. It was pieced together to make it all happen. It's a 69 f100 with a 67 289, on a 76 4x4 frame. The truck has 40k original miles. My dad kept the truck while I left home and went on a journey. A couple of months ago, I was able to get it from him and start my dream of rebuilding it. It's been a blast to work on and with LMC’s help ... read more >>

1971 Ford F250 – Mark M.

‘Ole Blue’ Like so many that have submitted stories to, ‘Share your TRUCK Journey,’ I’ve always wanted a Ford pick-up. My favorite is the 67-72, because that’s what I remember as a kid and my brothers have one or two themselves. When I found mine, it was an original owner, Las Vegas truck. It was a little rough, but my intent was never a show truck, but something that could be used. After being garaged while I worked on kid’s vehicles, I finally have it how I want it: a useful beast. It took 14 years and a lot ... read more >>

My 1955 Ford F100! I bought this truck in 1988 for $150. My friends and I painted, built on it, and revamped it. It now has a '66 289 Cobra motor, with c4 transmission, air conditioning, and a Chevrolet front clip. I still improve on it now, with the help of LMC parts! After finding a passion working on cars and trucks, I now own my own auto shop called McKinney Garage in Courtland, MS.

1952 Ford F3 – Leonard S.

I bought this truck in 1994 or 95. A farmer had this truck and it was in rough shape. It needed running boards and finders and I had to rework them. I did put a lot of new parts on it. They were really hard to find for a long bed. Finally got it on the road in 2019.

1952 Ford F1 – Bill M.

| Tags: FA

After a tip from a good friend, I found this 1952 Ford F1 in a farmers field. The body, hood, bed and fenders were all bead blasted and epoxy primered. All seams were filled joining the hood and fenders becoming a tilt hood with electric actuators. Two extra teeth were added to the grill. The truck was lowered with a Mustang II front end and super slide lowering springs in the rear. A nine inch Lincoln rear end replaced the stock unit. The engine is a 347 cubic inch Ford Performance Stoker with a C-4 transmission. An oak bed ... read more >>

1966 Ford F100 – Jewel F.

Grandpa John purchased this new pick-up in California, the San Diego plant was the origin. He drove to eastern Kansas and back in 1967. He owned it for 3 years then it passed to my father Jack. Jack loved that old truck, he used it when it snowed in Kansas. With the roads covered in salt it began to rust. It became a Missouri farm truck in 1987 so through the fields we go. Around the fences and through the gulleys with an occasional moving of the furniture this old truck did its job. So, for the next 28 ... read more >>

This is my 1988 Ford Ranger STX. It has a 2.3 (4 Cylinder) engine, 5 speed transmission with 4 wheel drive. I bought my truck back in 2007, it has been a work in progress ever since and I have gotten many parts from LMC Truck. It has been recently painted by me. My Ranger is very dependable, hardworking truck and its used a lot. I have hauled many loads of firework and it can go paces the big trucks haven’t dreamed of going. I have nicknamed my truck “Little Muscles”.
