    Hello everybody, I'm a French guy (sorry for my poor english) and a new owner of a Ranchero 73' Squire / Brougham, motorized by the 351ci. I try to pick a photo with my post.

    I'm a fan of the 70's in the USA (music, films, and naturelly...cars! ) and my dream come true when I bought this big block !

    I hope I can be helped by the "community" to find good stuff for my Ranchero on us websites, in France / Europe it's very hard; and also good advices to carry on my old lady !

    We have a few members in France, if I remember correctly. Bienvenue! My niece taught me that. That green is very bright, and reminds me of the shade of green on some of my Tonka Toys when I was a boy. The body looks to be in great condition (I had a 74 Squire, and it never was as good as yours is now), and if you have any trouble mechanically or electrically, speak up, we'll do what we can to help you.

    Thanks! For the color I was hesitate over green or "pumpkin orange", to stay in the 70's spirit..

    Thanks for your "bienvenue" post! Yes body is in absolutely perfect conditions, also undebody; that was important for me. It's easier to replace something for the engine than rusty steel

    Tell me about it. Mine has several rust spots that will need replacement.

    Welcome to the group! I like that green on that body style!

    just a technicality, but might help you later if you are looking for engine parts, on this side of the pond 351 is not a big block. Might also want to identify whether it is a 351C (Cleveland), 351w (Windsor), or 351M (Modified). The M is also sometimes referred to a 351/400. Plenty of guys here that can help with that off the top of their heads.
