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.

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!

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.

it's great to read a Christmas story this time of year.... WOW!

Appears to be the victim of a rear-ender.

Left in the hills of WV, broken in three places and rusted so much I could not even winch it onto a flat bed. Took what I wanted and left to rest where she sits.

Hey Ray!!
It just happens that yesterday on my latest wasted attempt to find "original parts" to have an ORIGINAL interior in my Mach I...... I stumbled upon a 71 Torino GT CJ car. The guy says its not for sale..... BUT IT NEEDS TO BE...lol. But it was cool just to FIND IT!!! It was stuck in an old shop with 19 other cool cars. Just sitting. Unfortunately that close to the bay...it won't last long.
