Nope, it´s your parts car. Tongue

Very nice Ranchero!
I owned 2 factory 429 Torino Cobras, one SCJ and one CJ and then one N-code Ranchero. They were all fun cars.
Many years ago, I changed job locations and could not afford to store them, so I had to sell them all.
That was a sad day in paradise - no doubt. To add insult to injury- now I cannot locate my old pics!

Mike, Who knows his Boss 302 should be on the road this spring and he wants a 2015 GT. So the Ranchero may go up for sale this summer.

Thanks. My brother picked it up at a estate sale for 1.500. He calls me one day and had me meet him at the house were it was at. The second owner had owned it since 73 passed and the family was selling off his estate. I pulled up to see this faded green Ranchero 500 with a 1.800 on the windshield.The son in law threw us the keys and said it runs! So my brother and I looked the car/truck over a rust free. Then we pop the hood to find a bone stock 351c 2v that was dusty but dry as a bone. It took a bit for the carb to prime but fired up and sat on high idle. No smoke no ticks it sounded great. Smack the throttle and she idled right down. Then I notice the belt was on the a/c compressor. I'm dude try the a/c! Sure enough the it blows ice cold! So down goes the hood and off we go on a test drive. I'm like ok this will tell the truth about this truck/car. To our amazement the trans went right into gear and took off. I looked at my brother and said "bye this thing" So he offered the family 1.500 for it and they bit.Cool So my brother did what he calls a quick y GT clone to it. We have driven it all over SoCal to shows and that 351c runs perfect in every way.

You ought to be knighted by this forum for that photo - it is the one undeniable piece of proof that convertible frame rail rust is a serious problem.

Perfect to show every gold-digging rustbucket convertible owner out there...

we had to use the trailer winch and a skid loader to get it up on the trailer. If I would of kept dragging it with the winch I think it would have broke all the way in half. Got a lot of good parts out of this car though. Put the disc brakes on my 71. The 351c 2v Motor and fmx trans went into a 68 mustang. 9 inch rear went into a 32 ford coupe. Someone on here got the shock tower braces, and a lot of misc. parts. So this old convertible lived on in many other cars!!! The spark plug wires fell apart in my hands, but I replaced a few of them with some old ones laying around, put some fuel down the carb, ran a line to a gallon jug of gas and it fired right up and sounded great!
