ls is more? or is it too much?

ryan_manson@motortrend.com Suffice it to say, there are more than a few options when it comes to powering an old pickup; that is, if we only look at those engine options that were originally available from the factory. Flathead Fords, Y-block Fords, and the venerable small-block Chevy, to name a few, get us through the first decade or so immediately following the war; and that’s not to mention the variety of six-cylinder options that were also offered. For this conversation, however, we’ll be focusing on the V-8 variety. Into the ’60s, and things progressed a bit, albeit in a “more of the same” manner. Ford changed from the Y-block to the Windsor block, similar in design but without the stacked intake ports, for starters. An OHV pushrod motor at least. Variants grew out…

shorty’s life story

I love writing about old cars and trucks, especially when there’s an interesting story about the owner and/or the vehicle itself attached. It’s the life stories that truly make it all the more worthwhile sitting behind the computer punching keys rather than throttle pedals. But occasionally, getting those stories out of people is like pulling teeth—and even when the old chunk of enamel’s been successfully pulled, so to speak, the information provided is less than helpful. Or, it’s the exact opposite and I get a novel’s worth of info, which I can deal with. This time, well, let’s just say I got more than I bargained for … and not from the owner, Vincent Troncoso. About a year ago, Jimmy Ruiz had just finished up this cleaner-than-most daily hauler for his…

laid out

There’s nothing like the backdrop of a quaint New England town to frame the ultimate introduction into a world of classic trucks. The combination of vintage farmhouses fused with rolling land and old side roads seems pretty close to perfection. For Corbin Martin of East Freetown, Massachusetts, growing up surrounded by these classic elements, accented by a dad who was deep into custom motorcycles and pickup trucks, easily led him down the performance path. Ever since he can remember there were always projects being worked on in the family garage, along with plenty of entertainment for the youngsters in the form of go-karts and dirt bikes. Being able to watch his dad, David, regularly fabricate parts for his custom motorcycles taught him about the dedication to the craft for the love…

f-100 cab rehab

It was 1948 when Ford introduced the first generation of F-series pickups. Here we are 71 years later and the 13th generation is on showroom floors. Obviously Fords have been a hit with new truck buyers over the years, the ’48-’52 first-generation and ’53-’56 second-generation continue to be hugely popular with the classic truck crowd and recently we’ve noticed that interest is growing in the later Ford trucks as well. Perhaps it’s simple economics. Could the rising prices of Chevy C10 pickups be prompting more hobbyists to seek out Ford trucks, like the ’69 F-100 our own tech center manager, Jason Scudellari, is about to build? Or is it the desire to do something different? Whatever the reason, we like it. Scudellari’s pickup is the fifth-generation style offered from 1967-1972 and…
