Re: 1963 Ranchero project.
First thing I needed to do was get it running.
The car is an original 260 V8 car. When he bought it it was running a 170 I-6.
About 10 years ago (or more. probly more) our shop foreman, who is quite the motor head, did some work on the car.
He replaced the gas tank, fuel lines, welded in new floors, added an electric fan, rebuilt the motor and put a Fairlane four speed in it.
Of course, sitting for 10+ years wasn't good for it. I replaced the fuel pump, installed a new filter on the Carb and used the old "Gas can under the hood" to get it running.
Then I loaded it on the trailer and brought it home.
