About

The Falcon Ranchero we chose because we like its basic style and design, timeless lines and usefulness. This car when done will not be a trailer queen but rather a fun to drive light weight truck that should perform with the best

The 64 Ranchero started life as a 6 cylinder car and was later fitted with a 260 V8 and 4 speed I purchased the vehicle in 2007 because the body was very straight with gaps and panels in good condition. There was the usual rust but that didn't matter as the entire unibody floor pan was being replaced with a new tube chassis and floor pan anyway. The 260 and 4 speed were tired and would be replaced by modern running gear.

Specs

The Ranchero will be designed with technologies that allow high performance with clean and efficient operation, excellent handling and comfortable operation. utilizing modern components

Mods

Waiting is a 03 Lincoln Aviator 4.6 32 valve currently stock with variable length intake, modifications will include forged internals and twin turbos. Propane will be the fuel of choice as with 104 octane plus it will provide many performance benefits as well as reduced installation and operating costs

A custom 4 bar with Alden coil overs and new rear frame where supplied by Art Morrison along with 11" disk breaks. The front suspension is an all tubular design supplied by Rod & Custom and includes Alden coil overs with 11.5" disks, rack and pinion steering and custom cross member to fit the 32 valve 4.6.
