Re: 1963 Ranchero project.

I want to hinge that panel for additional storage. I saw one at a car show where the guy had installed a remote cable hood catch on the panel to hold it closed and released it to open from the cab.

Re: 1963 Ranchero project.

Hey Ranchito,
I would give a Fat Back sandwich for an orig. 63 Ranchero in cherry shape. I have 4 Falcons and had 2 Rancheros . A 64 and a 65 , sold both like a dumby. Now i want another.
Thats gonna be a fantastic ride.

Re: 1963 Ranchero project.

Got the paint on.
Also got the paint in the interior done.

At this point they were wet sanding the clear coat.

Re: 1963 Ranchero project.

Can anyone I.D. this console? found it on the local Craigslist. Post said it was for a 63 Falcon.
We want to put a console in the Ranchito, and have looked at the aftermarket for the 64/65's (since no one has parts for the 63)

I've never seen one before, so we aren't sure if this is right or not. It has a FoMoCo emblem and part number on the underside of the door.

Re: 1963 Ranchero project.

It's been at the interior shop for about three weeks now. The guy said he thought it would be done by today.
Waiting for a phone call from him.

Got the new Bumpers and installed the brackets.
Also got a woodgrain Shelby style steering wheel from Dearborn Classics.
Sprayed a finish on that last night.

Can't wait to get it back so I can finish it and get to driving it!

Re: 1963 Ranchero project.

Well, after about three weeks at the upholstery shop, I finally have some interior progress pics.

Stopped by today for a look see.
It's kinda deceiving, but they are almost done.
New carpet and kick panels are in.
Door panels, seats, rear panel etc, done and ready to be installed. windshield guy is scheduled for tomorrow morning.

Had a little hiccup with another interior fella who lost some of the parts (new window cranks, door handles, dome light etc) but he got them reordered and they are supposed to be here at noon tomorrow.

Could be cruising in it as early as Wed evening.
we'll see.

Angry Re: 1963 Ranchero project.

Got a call from the windshield installer this morning.
Went to install the glass at the upholstery shop.

Turns out that glass in the box isn't a front windshield for 63 Ford Falcon.
Not even close apparently.

The guy ran the pat number through the data base.

59 El Camino rear window.
