Just wondering, back in the 80s, when they were common in the boneyards, I had a '78 Ranchero Squire, and found a matching paint code '78 Cougar in the junkyard, put the nose piece/headlights/bumper on the Ranchero, took a leather interior from a '79 Thunderbird (with headrests), put the door panels from the TBird in too, had to change part of the wiring harness (wanted the door lock switches on the armrests) and threw in a new carpet set I found in a Cougar. Sold it about 15 years ago to a guy in pasadena CA. Never knew what to call it, Cougarero? Anyway, has anyone seen that truck? It was yellow. I was going to put a 2 way tailgate from an wagon on it too, but didn't feel like welding in the upper hinge, everything else was a bolt on swap. I would have put on a Tbird front end, but plumbing all the vacuum for the headlights was too much of a PITA. I wonder if it's still around. I'd like to get pictures of it, I got a lot of "When did they make a Mercury Ranchero?" when I had it.
