A brief history of the legacy of Late Model Restoration and the progression of our brand transition to LMR!
Late Model Restoration launched into the late model Mustang aftermarket over 20 years ago in 1999 with the simple stated purpose of providing quality products and services to 1979-Present Mustang owners. While not an entirely new concept, we sought to capitalize on the emerging market that surrounded the restoration and performance hobbies of the late model Mustang. We knew these vehicles would become the new “classics” around us, eventually giving rise to over 3 decades and 4 unique platforms of Ford’s iconic American sports car.
Like any successful business story, LMR began with humble intentions and only a handful of employees. Like you, we’ve worked hard. Over the next decade and a half, we have experienced numerous expansions and exponential growth within the Late Model Restoration family. We aren’t afraid to get our hands dirty. We’ve spent years of research and keeping tabs on the ever evolving trends within our market to be able to provide the best selection and pricing on all of our Mustang and Lightning offerings.
Our dedication to our mission, our employees, and our customers has since catapulted LMR to the industry standard in 1979-Present Mustang & 1993-2004 Ford Lightning restoration and performance. We are constantly seeking better ways to bridge the gap between old and new, modified and stock, show car and project; no matter what stage you happen to be in.
Since the beginning, 5.0 Resto has been an icon in the industry and to this day remains the only brand dedicated to the Fox Body Mustang. This flagship brand offers an ever-expanding lineup of 1000s of products catered to the 1979-86 and 1987-93 Mustang and continues its ascent as the leading restoration brand for the Fox Body platform. Through our research and development team, we are constantly growing the diverse amount of products that carry the 5.0 Resto mark and look forward to the vast selection of parts we hope to provide in the future!
In addition to 5.0 Resto, SVE (Special Vehicle Equipment) has become our go-to offering for performance, styling and custom wheels for 1979-Present Ford Mustangs. Our rendition of this classic brand is a tribute to Ford's own SVE which was the grandfather of both the SVT and SVO programs. With an emphasis on Mustang performance and styling, SVE Mustang Parts has given rise to popular offerings such as aluminum radiators, suspension components, exhaust, lighting, body components, engine dress up, brakes and more!
Most of all, we appreciate you, our customers. From the loyal crowds who have spent countless hours under their hoods and out on the streets -- to the wide-eyed teenager who just got handed the keys to their first Mustang. It's our responsibility as fellow enthusiasts to feed the fire that surrounds this lifestyle. Like you, we want to ensure the longevity of these vehicles for decades to come, and to provide the perfect destination to all those who seek to do the same.
This is who LMR is, and what we always will be.
