    I love it! The bed would be better if it was more useful, but real nice car and great work.
     

  7. I know - Im not a big fan of the "mini truck" look. BUt I do like the way the car lays out.
    Down the road it can change if the bags dont work out.:D

    really sick ranchero. i wouldn't agree with un bagging the rear, but maybe in the future making it a little less "showy" you could definately geat a lot of your bed space back just by moving those bags, tanks, compressors and doing away with a lot of that tubing. but i definately understand why youre leaving it (hell its done, work on more needed shit first right). awesome build man. it's already got that look
     

  11. I know - I started to plex out a little but it was in bad shape and it needs a little life put back in it. More updates soon for sure.

    Picture it - same burgandy color - 15" chrome reverse wheels with a 1" white wall and cranberry and vanilla shake interior - white tonnoue cover with chrome snaps.
     
  12. Thanks.
     
  13. I know - i wish the bed was more useful - just about big enough for an ice chest...and thats it.
     

  14. Thanks man -I became a fan as soon as I saw Mr. Musico's with the tail lights.
     

  15. Right - It is a little much for a bag job - but its done / works well. I knew I would be covering it up with a bed floor and tonnoue cover. I wanted to focus on paint and interior.
     
  16. Wow, you've really made a lot of progress since I saw it Thursday night. Awesome, can't wait to see more.

    Sweet ride. I have owned 2- 57 Rancheros and would give anything to have the last one back. The grill is 55 Plymouth all right. That is what I am working on now. Good luck with the build. Are you going to set those headlights back any? Saw an article on swaping in 53 ford truck headlight buckets, that allow the headlights to not be so bugged eyed. It was in Street Rod Builder April 2001. I can email you a copy if interested.

  24. Nice work, looks really sharp! When something sits that low and tucks a lot of whitewall, you sure get over the whole "mini-truck" influence quick. I know the feeling when you get that new project and have all that motivation to get stuff done on it..
    Do you have any idea what that gas tank is from?
