Ranchero at local car show, 02-27-2016

Post #1 by 62Ranchero200 » Wed Mar 16, 2016 10:43 am

The attached photos of my '62 Ranchero are from the Towne Lake car show in Cypress, Texas.

Recent improvements to the Ranchero at that time included: front disc brakes, front Centerline 15" X 5.5" wheels and 205 60R15 BF Goodrich Radial T/A tires, a Centerline/BF Goodrich Radial T/A spare, rolled front fenders, new hood hinges and prop rod.



Next to me on the left is a '57 Ford Ranch Wagon, closely related to the '57 Ranchero. I like the deep red color ("Flame Red"); I'd like to use that as one of the colors for my future two tone paint.


Although you can't tell from this photo, the passenger side door seals, window felts and door panel are not yet finished.


Although I performed a front disc brake swap, I haven't changed out the master cylinder yet. You can still see the "fruit jar" single chamber master cylinder in this photo.

62 Ranchero, 252 cid, 300 rods, RaceTek pstns, ARP mains bolts & studs, balanced & blueprinted, CI AL head, 1.6 adj rckrs, Smith Bros, 274/274/108 cam, CI int, Holley 500, DSII, CI SS hdrs, PowerMaster strtr and 1wire alt, Optima, V8 rad, T-5z, 10" organic clutch, 5 lug 8" w/3.80 Trac Loc, rear drums, front 5 lug discs, Centerlines. Next: ?.

Sweet Ranchero!

The ONLY safety device we need is a 6" sharpened steel spike bolted to the center of the steering wheel of EVERY vehicle.
Emergency Rooms and Funeral Homes will be busy for a week or so, then I predict a dramatic drop in vehicle accidents.

:beer: Bob you did such a great job on that 62 Ranchero!
A bad day Drag Racing is still better than a good day at work!

I am still hunting for a project car to build but with my current low budget it's not looking so good. My Ex- Fleet of Sixes these are all long gone! :bang: 1954 Customline 223 3 speed with O/D, 1963 Fairlane project drag car with BB6, 1977 Maverick 250 with C4, 1994 F-150 a 300 with 5 speed.
