This 65 Ranchero comes to us needing a make over.
A Mustang II IFS suspension with disc brakes will tame it down a bit.
A 5.0 V8 will perk it up.
So far, the tear down has revealed only a small amount of rust. This Ranchero should make a cool restmod!
We found that at some time, in the last 50 years, the Ranchero was involved in a pretty serious accident. The front frame rails were distorted. We were able to correct that and continue with eliminating the original front suspension, and fitting the new IFS suspension. It all looks good now!
