Excellent!

I very nearly bought me a 1967 Ranchero with a 289 and a big Dent in the bed, all for $350!

Re: Excellent!

My very first car (truck?) was a 67 Ranchero. It had the dent in the door. I remember my dad hose clamping a chunk of wood to the brake and clutch so I could reach them.

Not All Rancheros are unibody only 60 - 65 I know for sure are but think the 66 was also . 57 -59 had frames and pretty sure 67on had frames . But I could be mistaken.

Take Care

Re: Excellent!

Actually besides the 57-59 ranchero, the full frame didn't emerge till 72.

Re: Excellent!

Paul's correct, 57-59 and 72-79 Rancheros were built on full frames from the Station Wagons of the same body styles during those years. 60-71 Rancheros are unibodies.

No time for love Dr. Jones! No, really I was only like 8 or 9 years old. I couldn't keep that dang thing running though. I stuck to motorcycles until a few years later.
