    Neat cars, congrats. Hard to mess them up, they make great customs, hot rods or stockers. I want one.

    I don't know my Rancheros very well, is that a '56 or '57?

    '57. First year made. The Ford Ranchero is a Pickup /coupe utility that was produced by Ford between 1957 and 1979

    0e3d6c56ab222cf092dbea72b90ba2d3.jpg I must have been mixing it up with the Fairlane Ranchero in '56, body moldings are way different now that I look at both years... as mentioned earlier a mild custom would be sweet

  18. No 56 Rancheros..just 57 and later.
    When I see a Ranchero, I see a custom. They make the best customs to me. 54 Chevy grille, 56 F100 head light rings on frenched headlights, frenched tailights....nice...

    Potential rust bucket - strip to bare metal - remove floor panel in bed - pull seat & carpet - add power brakes & steering

  24. Yeah I'm sure it has more than I can see. It comes with the new/used quarters as both sides are rusty. I'll take more pictures when I bring it home.

    Ford blue blood, I really like the way you frenched the headlights on yours. Takes away that bug eyed look the 57’s have.

    Really cool project. I can see a custom but for me personally I see a “gasser” style project. Straight axle, no front bumper, FE motor, stick and a teardrop scoop.
