    I installed engine and did an alignment and have been driving it for a few days. Took it to Home Depot to pick up some trees. Fun little ride.

    And added 3 point seatbelts. That was a bonus. I found a design online and fabricated some brackets to install inside the b pillar.

    That's great! Just exactly what these Rancheros were designed for.

    I'd love a driver Chero but none are ever around here. Either total junk or $$ restores. Wish I kept Charlie Brown.

    There is one for sale in Phoenix right now looks all original and needs everything but runs and probably rot free for $1500. I’ve been tempted just to horde it.

    That's why I'm keeping my '67 F250. It's never going to be a show-winner, so it can make the occasional dump runs or haul heavy stuff. I can hook up a trailer (it hauled my '64 home last year, and didn't break a sweat). Plus, it's paid for. The only downer is registration ($200/year in California, because it's a pickup (who cares if it's 50 years old?!?)). It's so useful that it would probably cost more to NOT have it.

    I’m in total agreement. A good old truck is worth more in utility than the money you get. And there are a lot out there but none exactly like the one you own. My brother is second owner for one just like yours. Doesn’t get used much but will do anything asked if it.
