I ditched my bucket seats just for that reason!
A 3 pedal car with a hot V8 and your arm around your girl, that my friends is the good life!
Why remove the bench and replace it with Mustang Buckets?
Um, cuz we wanted to.

Wanted to go with the sporty look and feel for this one. We're happy with the way it's turning out.


If I want to take my honey for a ride and snuggle, I'll take the Fury. It's got a bench, and push-button, so the shifter won't get in the way.

Thanks man. It's coming along nicely.

Did the intake on Friday. Wanted to take it down to the local cruise in we have every week. Was a push to get it finished.

Have a good time being sporty and snuggling. It's all good!
The shifter is supposed to be in the way! When you grab 4th gear, you have a nice warm place to rest your hand!

Re: 1963 Ranchero project.

So, we still are waiting for a few interior pieces, and it needs detailing, but overall, the car is basically finished.

I think it's looking purty good.

Re: 1963 Ranchero project.

Orthmann,
The Rancheto is looking great. Still would like to know the b/s on your wheels and tire size.

Thanks:

Thanks man, It's been a ton of fun. Now I get to enjoy driving it.
Put the wood grain steering wheel on last night. Would have sworn the tires were perfectly straight. Of course they weren’t. Got to "adjust" it today.

Yeah, I figered out after a bit that he was asking what the Back-spacing is. Honestly, I'm not sure.

Re: 1963 Ranchero project.

Installed the wood grain steering wheel Yesterday.
Took some creativity, but I got the original Falcon horn button on there.

Re: 1963 Ranchero project.

Very nice! You've turned that Ranchero around pretty quick. Makes me want to get mine back on the ground.

Re: 1963 Ranchero project.

I noticed you gauge facia is looking a bit funky. Th earlier versions are much cleaner looking. Check out a '62 gauge cluster. Much cleaner and 10 minute swap.
I'll check my barn this weekend to see what I got anf if I have one, I'll send it up to you gratis. That means free!

Re: 1963 Ranchero project.

When we ordered the interior parts they all arrived in two boxes from Dearborn Classics.
I took the boxes with ne to the interior guys house and they turned up missing. Guy was having a yard sale, only thing we can think of is they made someones day.

So he was cool about it and said he'd pay for the parts (poor feller, bout $300 bucks worth of stuff)

So we reorder it.

Have had a hell of a time getting the stuff shipped. It's only one day out from there to here. Been waiting 3-4 weeks on some stuff.

Annoying.

Anyway, last bits are supposed to be here tomorrow.

Re: 1963 Ranchero project.

There may be if you are willing to go thru the back panel of the cab. But no, if you want to remove the cover in the bed and install the spare there. These Rancheros have the floor pan of a wagon, so the area behind the cab is the rear seat area of a wagon. If you can visualize that.

Hope that helps
