Ken & Keryl Lesmann - 1947 Ford 1/2 Ton Pickup

In 2005, their truck was found on a farmstead in Coulee, ND - with little more than the body. With the help of their sons, Karter and Kasey, they hauled it home where it became “yard art” until they decided to restore it.

After buying a ’78 Ford LTD to serve as a donor car, they spent nights and weekends giving new life to their pickup. One year later – according to Ken – “It’s a genuine Ford right down to the Ranger gas tank and the 2002 Explorer seats!”

Ken & Keryl have been members of the Dakota Cruisers for 4 years. Their next project – possibly helping son Karter with one of his car projects.
