When did the line between trucks and cars get blurry? Some years back, trucks not only worked hard, they had a look all their own. Those big rounded fenders and spartan interiors just made you want to roll up your sleeves and get the job done. Today, a lot of those hard working vintage trucks are finding new homes in the garages of guys who want something that looks like a truck and is a whole lot simpler than what you can find in your local Ford or Chevy showroom, but the years have taken their toll and those trucks often need work, sometimes, a lot of work, before they're ready for daily or even weekly duty. If you've found your truck but it needs more than your available time or skills can carry out, Legacy Classic Trucks might be able to help. Whether classic pickup or old Dodge Power Wagon, you should see what they've been doing.
Legacy Classic Trucks provides three levels of restorations:
- Stage 1 is pretty much everything you need to make your truck a reliable daily driver and work truck. It will start, stop and run like it's supposed to and it will pass safety inspections required by your local motor vehicle department.
- Stage 2 is a full body on frame restoration. Engines and mechanical systems are rebuilt or replaced, electrical upgrades to handle a few more accessories and maybe some modern conveniences to make your truck more up to date and a touch less spartan.
- Stage 3 is a body off restoration and rotisserie paint job. Everything is an option, full interior makeovers, just about anything you want and can afford. What you get is show truck quality and appearance while still having a truck you can drive proudly anywhere.
If you can appreciate these classic trucks but really need some experienced hands to do the work, this is a shop that might be worth a look. The full restorations aren't cheap, the Power Wagons are in six figures, but what you get for that investment would look good parked next to your hunting lodge and it would get you there and back no matter how bad the weather.
Not for everyone, but maybe for you? Check 'em out.
