My next victim?


 40 panel is kind of on hold until I decide on running gear and find a donor. The 36 coupe has to wait it's turn in the parts gathering progresses. But I've had this 62 Ranchero a couple years. Took it on trade and haven't had any luck selling it. I also have a 76(ish) Scout pickup with no title. I've been thinking a lot about butchering the Ranchero body onto the Scout running gear. I think I'll need to take 8-9 inches out of the frame. Engine is a 196 4 banger and if It runs decent, I'll probably just go with it. Some guys have told me they got 20mpg with them. I think I can scrounge up a set of 31x10.50s. Junkyard roadkill project. Should be fun.
