Sounds like a great price, the '65 is probably one of the most desirable body styles for the Ranchero and even though its just a six A straight, rust free body is the hardest part to find!

Are you planning on modifying it or restoring it?

probably keep it stock at least for 6 mo to a year then the bug WILL bite and all those Mustang "leftovers" will need a good home(always a small block lying around here lookin'lonsome)Hey maybe that 260 over in the corner...HMMMM!

Sounds like a plan

It'd be a great car for a 302 5-speed
