I wish you luck.....

Hello, First to answer your question, I would check with Dearborn Classics for the qtr. patches and the floor pans. I have dealt with them in the past and have really found them to carry some really nice parts. I have found though that decent quarter panel patches are almost non-existant for several models of our beloved Rancheros. I thought for sure when I bought my 70 that fixing the quarters would be an easy fix. Well after about 8 months I still haven't found anything worth using. There is a guy selling the lower section of full quarter panels on ebay for about $99 each for several different models of Rancheros, Torinos and Fairlanes . I bought a pair of them from him for my 70 and thought my search was over. Guess again! I've seen thicker metal used on street signs!!!! They were total junk. Take it from me, save your money and don't buy anything from him. Anyway good luck on your search. I hope it turns out better than mine......

Rear qtrs. from a 66-67 Fairlane might work depending on how much of it you needed to repair your Ranchero. If you need to replace the whole qtr. then you would have to use a Ranchero specific qtr. If I had to guess, I would say that a qtr. patch from a regular two door Fairlane probably wouldn't work. The rear section of the qtr. from the same year station wagon probably would work though. Good luck trying to find one of those now... As far as the floors go, the Mustang pieces are definitely different than the Fairlane/Ranchero. I work in a Mustang restoration parts place so I've gotten a pretty good look at those close up. Finding replacement floors for your year Ranchero shouldn't be a problem. I believe both Dearborn Classics and Auto Krafters offer both front and back floors for them. As I said in my earlier post, you may want to check with Dearborn Classics about your qtrs. as well. I know they don't offer them for my 70 model anymore but they still might be available for your 67. I hope this helps.
