thinking of buying 1959 ranchero. think its a good deal?
it is a 1959 ranchero i think its a standerd model. it doent have the trim along the sides. from the pics it looks in good shape and very little rust. it is a southern car. and he only wants $800 and its in alot better shape then alot of the other 59 rancheros ive seen on line going for $1500 and if i do buy it were can i find parts. ive tryed ebay, and it has some stuff but a hole lot of interior parts and thats the main thing im gona need to get. (door panels, headliner, weather striping ect. well let me kno what you think and any good places to find the parts i have mentioned. thank you.
hell yah for 800 ,sure what about the driveline? does it run??do you have a place to play with it?derborne classics has most of what you will need ,what are you going to do ? daily driver .retomod(snarf) restomod is what we used to cal keeping it runing with what we had!!it's a 53 year old car..comleatly politicaly wrong...go for it
well to be honest i wana keep it retro. im thinking of going with a lime green 460 with a 4 speed top loader. i wana keep it retro but i dont want to go all rat rod on it. im thinking either a gloss or flat black paint from the trim down with lime green from there up with black top. the guy said the guy he got it off of said it ran. im sure i will be able to get in running by the day affter i buy it. but its got a 390 with a c6. yea i got a place to play with it. i also own a 1970 1/2 ford falcon. and a 79 f150 short bed 4x4. im not sure if im gona shorten the rear end and put some big fat meats in the back. what do u think? think it will look good? im a big fan of the color lime green. but im not a dodge guy. but i think this ranchero if perfect for the color. because no one is gona mistake it for a dodge. is it hard to belive im only 18 lol =P what prodjects are you working on?
18!!! alright!!! it's the right color if YOU like it!! be honest you are gonna build it for you right!....my projects.well I just picked up a 1947 BSA A7 ..500 cc twin.to go with my 71 triumph 250 single,the 68 Rnachero is getting a 428 t-bird mill with a 6-pac and some goodies..the 79 Bronco with a 428 is up and running bought it with a blown posi for 800 bucks and my kid fixed the rear and we went playing in the back field.you can see it inthe big bronco section under 390-428 brnco..and I'm trying to finish the wife's 65 Tbird.new cam offey intake msd ignition...cars are safer then girlfriends!!!
yea.... its gona be for me. altho i already have to many prodjects going lol. my 1970 1/2 falcon is almost done it just needs, new front end parts, new paint and new wheels and tires. and it should be done. im leaveing the 302 in it because it has a lot of sentamental value to me and the last thing i want to do is destroy it with to much power. and to top it off its a rare car. my 79ford is actualy a 73 but ive got a 79 grill for it which will go on soon. my plans for it are kinda big so its gona take me a while. (exspasaly sinse im gona get the ranchero) but anyways. ive got a set of dana 60s that are gona go on it shortly. affter that i wana bedline the frame. and get the truck painted. i am gona go with. a grabber blue paint like off of the 2010 mustangs. the intierior is gona be grabber blue with black, doorpanels, dashpad, seat, headliner, and rubber floor mat. and drivetrain wize i am planing to put a 7.3L powerstroke with the 6speed. and flat black stacks behind the cab. its gona be alot of work lol. and as for the ranchero. i think its gona be awsome. do you think i should go with a 460? i think it will be alot easyer to find then a 429 not a hole lot of them 429s here in new mexico. but being that the ranchero has a frame it should be able to handle a 460 big block no problem. im so exited. lol so what do you think about all the projects ive got going? lol wow a 65 t-bird nice. so you like bikes? thats awsome i do to but i dont own one. lol to many cars.
