Dennis and Janice Suscheck from Girard, Pennsylvania, sent us a letter about their '60 F-100. It landed back east after a truck driver bought and hauled it home in 1991 with plans to restore it that never came to pass. Dennis bought the truck within hours of finding the clean old farm truck. The Ford was all there and even had its past registration filed away in an old steering column mounted registration holder. The F-100 became a Suscheck family project for the couple and their four sons.

They soon found themselves combing swapmeets in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and New York looking for the necessary parts to restore the '60. It took about six years of quality family time before the Ford was ready for paint, which was one of the only two things, including upholstery, that the family didn't do themselves. Since completing it, the Suschecks have had a ball driving and showing the Ford, especially since the '57-'60 models have been catching on more.
