1972 Ford Ranchero

72 Fish Mouth, somewhat rough but a project on the backburner until I get a few of the others caught up This car has been earmarked for the Zombie Apocalypse Vehicle. I have installed the roll bar from the $2009 Challenger, refreshing the engine. I have picked up some accessories with the theme in mind. Now has a AOD trans, 9” has a mini spool, 302 is fresh 93 5.0

Floors have been repaired, set of Camaro buckets installed that I had spare, a fresh 93 roller engine installed, trans not coping with this though.

Fresh motor is in her, but the tired C4 is not up to the job so I have sourced a small block F350 ZF 5 speed, more to come

Oh good to see you have a ZAV, now that people are chewing each other's faces off.

If you ever decide to sell this car, let me know. I love '72 Rancheros.
