Looking good. I love Rancheros. Thanks for your reply. Looks like you have it handled.
Now the fun begins putting it back together without scratching anything.
Some pics outside, and one with my '35.
some small pieces getting ready for paint also.
IT LOOKS LIKE A BUILD OF PRIDE
Ranchero going home, and getting dropped off. Now needs to be color sanded and buffed. And the slow rebuild.
Not trying to build a full show car, just a clean driver we can enjoy.
so what did you do with the 51 Ford steering wheel?
This looks awesome! Great work!!
Not much going on cause of work, but cleaned up the front suspension and chassis, and firewall. Got a lot of primer overspray. We will hopefully start building the front soon as time allows.
Started the front end.
Rolled it outside for a quick picture in the sun.
Still have to align the front end, and start color sanding and buffing.
Looking great! Keep up this pace and you'll be driving it in no time!
Here's a little time lapse of the car.
I cant wait to get this on the road.
Awesome! Love it. I have it bad for a 50's Ranchero
Started to color sand and buff.
Clear is already pretty smooth so not too much sanding to get it flat.
Smooth as a new born's butt awesome.
THE RANCHERO IS FOR SALE!!! IF ANYONE IS INTERESTED PLEASE LET ME KNOW!
How Much? any more details?
Is it on the classifieds here?
Yes it's on the classifieds
Wanted to update this topic. A good friend of mine purchased it from me and kept building it.
Here's some photos on the way to the interior shop!
Car is back up and running, side glass is cut and installed, rear glass is installed, all the side stainless has been polished and installed. Steady progress is happening. Should be done in the next few months! Will post photos when interior is done.
Nice truck, at least you'll to get to cruise in it when its finished. Ive been struggling with getting mine done too, even thought I might have to let it go a couple times. Sometimes I wonder if its going to be worth all the sacrifices I've had to make.
nice ride I like your color choice. I went a different direction with mine
Here are some photos of interior. We wanted to keep it classic. (Don' mind the steering wheel.. lol)
Sending bumpers out for chrome, and getting rest of the trim polished.
How could you sell it after all that work?
You got my attention, kool project!
