Nice Ranchero.

Are you going to add a shop sign to the doors? I think that would finish it up nicely.

Yes, Shaw Sign in Milford Ohio is doing that now...I own a Car Repair-Used car sales, in Hamilton, Ohio Lindenwald Auto, Sales and Service, was a Sunoco Station in 1939, and I am honoring that heritage of the orignial owners, the Hinkle Brothers.....Stay tuned...it WILL look killer...all Upgrades, T5 install, inside, ALL done for UNDER $1700 dollars......

"Tonneau".

It's French.

Actually, when I was a kid back in Columbus, someone advertised an El Camino with a "Tonto" cover in the Dispatch for sale classifieds. I have called it a tonto cover ever since.

Falconwagon62,
Great looking Ranchero. Your post brought back a lot of memories for me. My Grandfather had a similar Ranchero. It was white with a 3 on the tree and a straight 6. We would to go down to his little farm in it and "slop" the hogs. I can remember the car like it was yesterday. He had a little repair shop and would get unusual cars from time to time. How I would love to have that car now. He also had a very early IH Scout with the half cab (but that is a story for another forum).
Thanks for bringing back memories. Good luck with the build.
