  1. I don't fully know. I can say that it has been in Albuquerque since 1981. That's the date of registration on the title.

  2. Ran a break line down #1 cylinder and cycled the engine by hand. Using the valve cover lip a my point of reference, I made two marks on the brake line. Broke out the ol dial calipers and she's a 332. The stroke was nowhere close to 3.50".
    For now it'll get stuck in the corner of the garage to collect dust.

    I had two 20 years ago, I was going to make 1 really good one out of, then sell the worse body. My wife decided we were moving, and I got mad & sold both of them. Worse mistake of my life. Two different guys got good starts toward their dreams.

    I love me a good sedan pickup. I'll be watching.

  6. Sorry folks as not much is happening quickly. I've been busy working on my better halfs 49 Chevrolet 3600.
    However this is where I currently sit on the Ranchero. Along with the rockers and quarter panels, looks like I'll be doing some floorplan work. 20210101_131254.jpeg 20210101_131322.jpeg 20210101_131341.jpeg 20210101_131346.jpeg 20210101_131351.jpeg

  7. Just to make sure that I am understanding correctly.
    Are you saying that I should un-rivit those upper a-arm brackets and move them closer to the firewall?

    Looking good. Maybe watching your progress will motivate me to finish mine up.

  10. I just went through your build thread. That is awesome. I'm going to borrow your idea of making the rear floor behind the seats flat.
