I was amazed when I saw that C engine code attached to a Ranchero 500 !!

That's one rare bird, and it was rare when new.

There's a fellow in the Phoenix AZ area that may have the production figures. I don't recall his name but I believe it begins with an M. He's into HiPo Fords and advertises in Hemmings Motor News (hemmings.com). There's a fee for a copy of the build sheet if he has the info. He bought all the data from FoMoCo, so it's the real McCoy.

Kevin Marti of Marti Auto Works. He can provide build info for you. You can also call Ford Customer Service and ask them for a History 999 report.

The November issue of Hemmings Muscle Machines just did a great article on a '71 Ranchero Squire 429CJ.
