Custom 1978 Ford F-150 - 78JUS4U
Father-and-son Build Turned Memorial
Seldom does a tech sheet move you when reading over the nuts and bolts of a truck buildup. However, after reading Kevin Harrell's info, we were all touched. Kevin rebuilt the '78 Ford F-150 that was handed down to him from his father, who purchased it new in 1978. After years of faithful service as a work hauler, grocery hauler, and eventually a school hauler, Kevin decided to transform the truck and do it in his late father's memory. Hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars later, the very rare '78 was finished and christened with a personalized plate reading "78JUS4U," a fitting reminder that this truck was built for a special man. Trucks are more than hunks of metal with rubber tires. They're rolling time machines that can take us back to a special era when happy times filled our thoughts.
