1982 Ford F100- Don D.

January 15, 2019 | Tags:

    Before I got this 82 Ford, it was my mom’s truck. Her best friend had bought it new, but when she passed away, my mom got it. I went to visit her one summer and was doing some work around the house and noticed the truck had a tarp over the bed and was full of branches. I told her I needed to take the load to the dump. When I got to the dump, I could smell the load and realized it was composting! I told her later she can’t let stuff sit in the bed that long. She ... read more >>

      My dad bought this truck new in 1979. My sister and I went to pick it up and she wrote the check and I drove it home. Lots of good stories to be told about this truck. My dad was going to sell it several years ago and I just could not let that happen so I went to get it. It sat in my shop for several years and about a year and a half ago I decided it was time to get it back on the road. I rebuilt the engine, transmission and replaced the interior. The body ... read more >>

      The truck my grandpa used in the late 70”s early 80”s and tranny blew on it so it sat at the family farm for 35 years sinking into the ground. Now my grandpa is passing away with stage 1 terminal cancer and my family wanted it gone for scrap so I took it off their hands. For the next two years I spent the whole time body off the frame sanding everything and let it sit. I worked all winter and was able to get a tranny 350 small block and had help from closer friends to help painted it ... read more >>

      I first saw this truck when I was about 16 years old, and knew I had to have it! It was in nearly perfect shape, and hadn't even turned over 80k miles. Every time I saw the owner, of course I asked if he wanted to sell it. In April of 2017 he finally did, and with the help of LMC Truck I've got my dream truck and have it looking great!

      1976 Dodge D100- Robert G.

        The first time I took my wife of 36 years now on a date back in High School, as we were headed back to her house she said, “ stop, see that truck, someday I’m going to own it." It was a 76 short wide D100 lowered and painted with a ton of laquer paint. Well 7 years later I bought it for her. But with two daughters by then, and no power steering or brakes, shortly the fun ran out of it, and we let it go. I have told her for years, someday I’ll find another one and ... read more >>

        1978 Chevy Silverado- James D.

          I bought this truck from the original owner's wife after Chuck passed away in 1996. Chuck ordered this truck in 1977 after reading a article in Four Wheeler magazine. He ordered it loaded with nearly every available option. The day I picked it up from Ann, I went directly to the radiator shop for a new one. It had 140,000 miles and hadn’t been maintained well but hadn’t been modified or abused. I used it for my construction business for about 10 years before retiring it to camping, fishing, and spare vehicle. I have added the 454 engine, ARB air ... read more >>

          The story of finding "Eileen" started with talks of my wife and I having our daughter Waverly. Jokingly, while discussing starting a family, I proposed to my wife that "for every kid I gave her I would get an old car or truck." Well 9 months later my search began! It took 3 months of searching to finally find a vehicle I wanted. After 15 hours of pulling a trailer to Colorado we stood in front of a misrepresented GMC C1000. 5 minutes of looking over the GMC I knew that I wouldn't be bringing it home. Defeated and tired ... read more >>

          A father/daughter project on a 1959 Ford barn find. Daughter wanted an old truck for high school graduation present. Together we stripped it to the frame, found and built engine and transmission, while keeping the stock rear axle. Put it together, painted and did all the work ourselves. Total time to build was about 14 months, she drove it to school for the last 3 months of high school, then to college.
