    '59 Rancheros are really bitchin when done right. Take your time and don't take any shortcuts on quality, even if it takes a while longer to collect the funds to do it right..........Mike

    Here's my Ranchero, I drive it pretty much every day. Just got fresh paint on it, going to be making some custom tail lights and a clear/flake steering wheel for it this summer. Drive, break, fix, upgrade.

    There a Caddymino in my neighborhood, it was factory built by a conversion company whose name I can't remember, it used a late model El Camino back window and cab steel.

    More info? I bought it from the son of the original owner who parked it in 1969 with 94,000 miles on it. Its a factory 283 4 bbl powerglide car. It willingly started right up with a battery, quick points file and fuel. Welding in floorpans - again today :D.

    That is awesome. It would not look that good here after being out in the weather that long.

    Looks to be the factory paint or whats left after 40+ years of baking in the California sun.
