Is it some dude on a farm? Isn't that what they call 'em? Rancheros? Or is it one of those cinnamon bread stick things that you get at the carnival?




HAHAHAHA!!!! SOOOO true....I miss the '64 and '67 I got to stare at all the time at my uncles. I should've bought that '67 when I was 15.

^^NICE!! I've always wanted to build a street/strip/track Gen2 Falcon 'chero with a 302...basically..I wanted to build a Boss 302 Ranchero. Almost bought a '67 Fairlane 500 'chero with a mild 302 and 4spd in it. Then I literally handed over the cash to a '68 Elke with a 500hp 383 and TH400 w/ manual valve body, 12bolt, aluminum dash with autometers, roll bar good for into the 12's. hell yesss! Then dad pulled my hand back. damnit.
