    1975 Ranchero Parts Needed

    No one has a decent used front passenger side wheel lip moulding?
    Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    Right Front Wheel Lip Moulding. (Bought the other 3 already)

    Front license plate bracket. Must be from ‘74-‘76.
    1973 is a one year only bracket and will not work.

    One Inside door lock knob.

    Sweet.
    Thanks!!
    I don't know how I missed that!
    I have 6 saved searches on eBay for this thing and none of them hit.

    Yeah, tube duct hose... too many names for it ;-)
    Part numbers can be tricky, too. Some people only list one of the part numbers for a part that basically consists of 2 individual parts. Found that out trying to find an intermittent wiper switch with governor. So if you're searching on part number, you might want to keep that in mind.

    Just curious, why don't you go for the horns that are available on rockauto.com or ebay? Looks like they are factory-like reproductions.

    I'll check them out, but I kinda like factory stuff.
    Also, I need to see what was done by the PO.
    The PO replaced the factory horns with European air horns.
    This thing sounds like my 1959 Alfa Romeo.
    I'm not sure if he simply plugged the air horns into the factory wiring and left the relays, wire etc... in tact.
    Or if he did something else.

    I know a German guy that has a pair of Sparton horns coming off a '78 or '79 Thunderbird. I don't know if they fit your '75 or if they work, I could ask if you want to, though I have a hard time believing you can't find a used pair in some US junkyard. :) Let me know if you're interested, S&H shouldn't be too bad from EU.

    Seems to me any mid to late 70's Ford product will be a good match I really can't see them making a lot of different horns ( for cost containment)
    Local yards have tons of them
    1 high and 1 low note

    All: I'll wait for my next junk yard visit for the horns and tire iron.
    The door lock knob I need is the one that kinda looks like a bolt at the top.
    I think they make repos, so no biggie there either.
    Thanks!

    I’ve been looking for wheel lip trim for literally 12 years (off and on). I see in your original post you found three- good for you! Mind my asking where?
