1998 Dodge 1500 – Bill M.

November 10, 2020 | Tags: DC

I bought this 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 about six years ago. I have put all the mechanical parts to the engine and rear end in this truck. I also replaced the rear fenders and bedsides and had the cargo cover painted. I put on new tires and rims, and replaced the dash. Had some tumbleweed pinstriping added on as I am a country boy. I love this truck. I put it together like it should be. My 9 year old daughter will get this truck and keep it. I am very proud of how well the truck looks. ... read more >>

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 >>

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 >>

1988 Ford Ranger – Jack F.

| Tags: FR

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”.

1986 Chevy K10- Kole K.

This K10 step side has been in the family for 34 years. My dad ordered this truck from factory with a 6.2L diesel, standard transmission and 4x4. He then put on a 7” lift with 37.5” Super-swampers. This truck was in storage for about 20 years, and in 2008 when I turned 16, my dad asked if I wanted to take it over as my daily driver (with the deal that I ditch the super swampers and drop it down to a 4” lift). I bought the truck with only 34000 original miles and it now sits at 54000. ... read more >>

1972 Chevy C10 – Jeff M.

Long Lost Love When my parents first started dating, my dad had a 1972 Chevy Cheyenne short bed. My mom wanted that truck so bad. My dad ended up selling it to a friend of his who crashed it. My mom was mad. Well, I did research on this style of truck and found hundreds of 67-71’s, but the ‘72 was eluding for about 15 years. One day I went to my buddy’s shop and there it was parked in my usual stall. A ‘72 short bed. Needed a little work, so I asked if it was for sale. ... read more >>

Just Starting Out I’m 13 and have loved the looks of the 67-72 Chevy and GMC trucks for a long time. I have been begging my dad for one for a long time and I found one that I fell in love with but it cost $2,800. So he surprised me and brought it home! I’m in love with it but it needs a lot of work so me and my dad are taking it apart and redoing it so hopefully it will be done and ready when I turn 15

1978 Ford F250 – Keith B.

I responded to an ad on the lego app. It was a 1978 Ford F-250, a truck I have always wanted. I’m old school! The guy I bought it from started to rebuild the truck 15 years ago but had a fallen out with a friend so it was parked in the woods for 12 years so I bought the truck. I had to tow it home because something was wrong with the motor. So I took it home and started on it

1977 Ford F100 – Scott W.

Rolling Tribute The truck originally belonged to my best friend in high school. After graduating in 1983, we remained good friends. About 1987 the engine developed a low end knock so we decided to pull the motor out to make upgrades. We put the engine on a stand and put the truck in the corner of the shop and covered it up. We talked about what we would be doing with it in the coming weeks and beyond. But sadly, that time came and went. The truck remained there for the next 30 years. My friend passed away in ... read more >>
