Since I was taking pictures of the new Ranchero I thought I would snap a few more...

My 1972 Thunderbird (AKA Big Pimpin'...)

460 BB
Power Everything (even the E-Brake pops itself...)
Everything but paint is original (Paint is original color)
Original "NO TRIM and Sport Mirror" car which is very rare

Image

My Dad's 1966 Fairlane GTA

CA Car as well

AC Car

I got this car when I was working in FL. It was sitting in an apartment complex. I bought it for $1500. I just couldn't say no for that price. There isn't a spec of rust anywhere on this car....

All original unrestored (needs minor patch work and a good repaint)

Image

Our 1972 Chevy C 10 (I know... A Chevy????)
My Uncle left us this truck when he passed. It is almost ready for the street. He had it repainted. We restored the engine compartment and put a new SBC in it.

Yeah... It was a piss poor year as far as wheeling goes, but I kept busy. I also built a "New New Haspin Hauler" as well last year I will post pics of it later.

What engine in the 66 GTA? My all time favorite car is a 66 Fairlane 500 with a 427 in it. :twisted: Great looking cars! Nice to see another Ford person, Seems like the majority likes the GM products :roll: Kids....haha. I built a '64 Ford F-100 Step side with a 292 Y block in it and 3 on the tree when I was a junior in highschool. Ive always had Ford trucks.

390/C6 in the '66 GTA (all original drivetrain). The '67 Ranchero is in the process of getting a 428CJ that is balanced and blueprinted with edelbrock aluminum heads and intake and FAST fuel injection and it is getting hooked to a 31spline close ratio top loader from an SCJ Torino.8-)

Still sourcing parts for the Ranchero. I will add more pics of the work on it shortly. Turns out an engine that was made for 2 years can be a little hard to find parts for... and the parts that are easy to find are usually more expensive than the hard to find ones. :shock:

64 F100 with a mystery shifter sounds like a fun truck. I learned to drive stick with a 3 on the tree flat nose econoline. I think my dad's theory was between the wore out shifter linkage and the wore out steering linkage the actual clutch part of the ordeal would become the easy part.... :twisted:
