A neighbor of mine promised his kid that when he turned 14, they would go looking for a vintage Ranchero project to work on together and have finished by the time he turns 16. Well, they found a very afforable, rust free canidate within a few weeks of their search. It has a dependable 302 V* with an automatic. All they did was get the paint touched up (I guess it was two-toned with lavender :shock: ) so it was one solid color, added the front boss styled spoiler and slapped on the 17" aluminum slots on BFG tires.

He stopped by the other night and I snapped a few pics of her:

I'm glad I didn't! That's not the age at which to be driving a nice car.

That is just beautiful, and a whole lot nicer than any full size truck. I'd love to have something like that. Do you know what they paid for it?

The car isn't perfect, but my friend calls it a "10 footer"

He didn't spit out an exact number, but I believe he has around $5000-$6000 into to it tops. Not bad for such a unique cruiser (especially with todays crazy prices on vintage musclecars).

That sounds like a great price. If I could find one for that I'd be really tempted to buy it.

How much was the boss front lip? The Ranchero looks very nice & it has a clean design. I really like that paint job.
