Greetings- I purchased a 62 ranchero a few weeks ago. I’m 48 and guess I needed a project. Not entirely new to rancheros. My dad daily drives a 66 and my brother had a 60 years ago. My 62 is an interesting story. I purchased it with a 200 in it and a 4 speed according to seller. In looking it over and decoding the transmission turns out it a late 80s 5 speed. Fun discovery. It has a header, 2 barrel Weber carb and electronic ignition. The engine was beautifully smooth but it dumped oil so I started the rear main removal process to find out someone silicones the seal in place. In fact there was so much silicone it’s on the crankshaft. Because of this I pulled the engine yesterday and will be pulling crank to get to the upper portion of seal. Car is rust free and has numerous other mods both interesting and awkward. It’s a long story so I’ll try to add more later.
