    Veeery Sexy. I like the color. Any info on the wheels? That is the exact stance I want mine to have.

    I am sure it is because I am new to the Ranchero world (but have quickly become a HUGE fan) but I didn't even realize that it had the Squire trim on the tail gate :eek:

    Hmmm.... To keep or not to keep???

    well that is up to you and whether or not you like it that way. If you remove it tho I believe it will leave holes behind that would have to be filled necessitating a repaint of the tailgate. If it was me I'd probably save up some money and redo it just so it matches the rest of the car..but its up to you dude...great looking ride either way.

    Since it runs great my first goal is to remove as much rust as possible. I have already sanded down a small section right behind the left front tire and found a small hole rusted through. I also sanded down the bottom section of the passenger door and found a even smaller hole rusted through.

    So there is a chance that once I finish my rust crusade I may be painting the whole car so I think I will pop that extra trim off before I do.

    I was doing some online research on rust removal and found a few people who recommend using molasses! Anyone ever try it on parts that you can soak? Drums maybe?

    the ranchero enblems on the quarters are a different touch as well.
    Sweet ride either way. I kinda wish mine was a plain instead of a squire some days.

    Bench seat??

    So I ordered a set of black leather buckets seats (power)

    My question is... Did the 1970 Ranchero bench seat have a rear ash tray?

    Mine does & I am thinking it might be out of a different model, Torino maybe??

    I need to wait to see how I like the bucket seats are once in the car, but if all is good I will sell the bench seat. Just need to know what model its from :confused:

    BTW, the bucket seats are out of a Porsche 986 :eek:

    One of my Ranchero's also had a an ashtray on the seat back. Maybe they did toss of few Torino seats in the Ranchero?

    What year was the one that had the ash tray? If a 70, did the seat look like mine?

    Mine was in a 70, but now that I look at yours, I have to say, nope, mine wasn't like that. The style of yours looks newer than a 70-71. Do you have a Dearborn catalog? It shows, in decent detail, what seats were offered in what Fords.

    Might be wrong but that seat kinda' looks like a 72 Montego MX Brougham.
