With faded green paint and 70,000 miles showing on the odometer, Jeff Beaule of Lewiston, Maine, inherited his grandfather's '68 Ford F-250. Jeff replaced the fenders, doors, bumpers, and wheels, rebuilt the bed and painted the pickup Ford Toreador Metallic Red. The original 360ci V-8 and four-speed trans still work great, so Jeff decided not to tempt fate. Eventually, the Ford will need new upholstery and a rebuilt engine. For now, the Beaules enjoy their Metallic Red 2WD truck.
