I'll post a couple later on this evening.

Car is currently undergoing some minor surgery.
Hoping to get the engine compartment painted this coming week.

Here is mine


In the shop now getting a few things done to it.
Like cleaning and painting the engine bay,
putting a new 5.0 in that hole.
Got the t-10 rebuilt and it is also waiting.

Also need to repaint the dash and the rear shelf.
Recently replaced the floor under smugglers box,
had to cut out some of the back of the cab to do so.
Now I gotta replace that as well.

This is my '63 Ranchero project with a 4” static drop and 13 inch Cragars mounted on 5.20-13 Sportaway tires. The badges on the front fenders are the Australian "Super Pursuit" found on XM Falcons which seemed apropos given the Edelbrock tri-powered engine with glass bowled Holleys that is being rebuilt and will make its way under the hood.

My 63 ranchero in Oz. I purchased it a few years ago but it has spent most its time in the shed due to other projects.

My 65 project...



Whereabouts in Idaho??
I grew up in Blackfoot----Between Pocatello and Idaho Falls

Bet you have to bundle up nice in the Winter---no heater in that car

Question on the Radiator--Water pump

I have the same radiator with a driverside water pump inlet.
If you have a later engine and water pump---what lower hose
did you use.
Not sure the one I had with the other radiator will work----besides---can't find it.

I just did this on my Fairlane, if its 1 and3/4" on water pump and 1and1/2" on the radiator, try a lower hose for a V8 Maverick.

I'm in Mtn Home not as cold as you eastern Idaho guys but still windy. We finally had a decent day yesterday, it was in the low 40's and I took it for a spin. looks like more bad weather in the forecast though.

I'm not sure myself, I haven't had to replace it yet. I just used the same hose when I replaced the radiator. it has an early 70's 302 in it. Might try and run to Napa or whatever and see if they have something close to fitting.
