Father's Truck My father handed over this 1978 Ford truck to me (I was 17) which he purchased brand new. Shortly after that, he passed away unexpectedly at the age of 37 in January of 1983. We were cutting firewood with this truck in an ash swamp in the middle of winter in Minnesota when he experienced a heart attack. I have a lot of memories of him in this truck. He named the truck "Lord Mr. Ford" after the song by Jerry Reed. He always had a name for his trucks. I drove it for my junior and ... read more >>

A Gift of Appreciation I had a 1999 Ford Ranger that left me stuck in the desert until a little girl in a Jeep came to pull me out. I swore from that day on that my next truck would be a 4X4. Well, the Ranger was totaled in an accident, and I was in search of another truck. I had been giving my sister - in -law and her family a leg up after they fell on hard times. Well, one Sunday, they pulled up in front of the house and called me out. There sat a 2002 ... read more >>

1987 Ford F250 Resurrection This truck began its life in Texas. Then one day, it was retired and put in a Texas field where it sat for 12 years untouched. It literally was coated in dirt and clay and had moss and mushrooms growing on it. Fuel tanks and lines rotted out. It was old and tired and needed new life. Oddly enough, it was perfectly preserved Texas style. One day, my buddy of over 30 years, Jerry Bachman and I decided to pull it up to the garage and begin the 1987 Ford F250 Resurrection. The paint is ... read more >>

Hawaii Mishap I have long desired to rebuild an early 50’s Fat Fender Ford F100 but could never quite find the project vehicle that offered the right level of challenge without getting myself “too deep”. A visit to a specialty body shop to check out my friend’s 58 Corvette paint job introduced me to the perfect project. Sitting out in the back lot was a wrecked 1956 F100. The story was that the owner had sold it to a buyer in Hawaii and prior to shipment the shipping container was dropped and the truck was badly damaged. Considered totaled, ... read more >>

1958 Ford F100 on a 1979 F250 Chassis This project started out as a mostly stock 1958 F100 with a 292 Y block. We transplanted the body onto a 1979 F250 camper special chassis and dropped in a 460 with a C6 and NP205 transfer case. We also used a high pinion dana 44 front and dana 60 rear end to put the power to the ground. Thanks to LMC most of the hard to find parts were available for us to complete this project! Thanks for the support!

1989 F-250 7.3 Diesel Farm Truck! My dad, brother and myself bought it used and it was in pretty good shape. We used it for a service truck, pulling trailers and many other farm stuff for many years. I bought out my brothers share and my dad gave me his share of the truck. The paint was looking bad and was getting rust on fenders. I did a total restoration of the body. Painted and restored to original. With a few minor improvements. Happy to have the 1989 F-250 7.3 diesel back on the road and farm. ... read more >>
