Sounds like a fun project. Nice you already have a direction. I have to sit on it and change my mind half a dozen times before I decide what to do.
Keep us updated as she progresses.

Hey BC, I assume you meant a "60 Ranchero in BC" and not an "80..." Regardless, love those Ranchero's! That would be my second choice for going round body. First would be a 63 hardtop of either type.

Nice looking Ranchero, BC. Reminds me of my first (I've been bitten by the Ranchero bug 4 times now). My first was a '60 with 144ci and Dagenham. What a powerhouse that was (ha ha). But it carried three bodies, three dirt bikes, three gas cans, helmets and assorted paraphenalia many trips to the desert riding in central WA from the coast, and still got almost 20 mpg. I loved it and wish I had kept it!
