    Post some pictures of the ride. There are still some great finds out there. I was looking for a 73 to fix as a play car, and stumbled by accident a 73 Squire Q code in Hinkly CA. Went to look at it and it was complete missing condenser and radiator. More shocking is when I pulled the engine it matches the VIN. Had more rust than I cared for but a complete Q engine and original, couldnt pass it up. Oh and I only paid $500.00. Have to skin the right quarter, too much rust and one large dent to repair. Before I bought this beauty I was unaware that Ford put the CJ motors in Ranchero. I will send picts once we get further. Going to pickup another 73 for parts this weekend. I need floor pans, doors, and ??? Found one with no rust, great donor car.

    Don't be a quitter. Maybe he's in a coma, or something.
