It's a 64 Ranchero!!

My buddy John got it from another friend, was part of a deal on a 65 Falcon coupe. Guy just didn't want the 'chero. Too bad for him.

Here's the info:

VIN: 4H27F147172

Plant: Lorain OH
Engine: 260 V8
Body: 66A : Ranchero (std)
Color: A : Raven Black
Trim: 44 : Medium beige bench
Date: 20M : 12/20/63
DSO: 65 : Oklahoma City
Axle: 4 : 3.25 non-locking
Trans: 5 : 4-speed

Must have been a pretty sweet little ride when it was new. Car came from Texas at some point, still has the Texas plates and all.

Plans at present are to just get it running and driving. The body is not terrible, but has a couple good dents. Floors are MIA, must have left themselves in Texas..

He's got a 5.0 from an 87 Mustang, I'll loan a toploader to get it going. We'll get it running and driving and then take it from there. Some floors are part of the plan as well.

I do have aquestion...motor mounts. The 64 style V-8 mounts are nearly impossible to find from what I've "heard". What will bolt in as a replacement. I've heard that later style Mustang mounts will work, but I just want to be sure.

Can't help with the mounts seems like the falcon or mustangs would work.

Cool car should be a fun ride.

Sounds like a nice ride. I checked my Dearborn Classics catalog and found them under part numbers MM102L and MM102R for the SBF. (Unfortunately, they don't show a set for cramming a 429/460 or FE in there...)

Leave it the way it sits now. It would make a BADD gasser.
I can see it now big'ol scoop, slicks, and a big cam.
