The Green Machine 1979 Ford F-150 1.jpg

My dad bought the truck new in 79. Sold it a few years later but regretted it. 20 years go by and I found the truck sitting in the edge of the woods. It had been there 15 years untouched. How I knew it was his was 1/4 piece of steel had been welded between the frame rails, and chain hooks welded to the plate (trucks didn’t have tow hooks in 79 ). I was able to buy it back all without my dad knowing. I took it down to the frame and built it back to what you see today. Owning a Body Shop has its perks! 9” skyjacker lift, 40” TSL super swampers, factory “color” paint, and a whole lot of love!
