    Nice car!
    You will have to learn to ignore the 72 envy around here and the 'fishmouth' references.
    I don't know what jealous person came up with that, but every fish I ever hooked had a mouth as wide as it's head. Kind of like the 70-71 models.
    Good to see another 72 saved from the Torino vultures!

    don't have the distributor but he said he would get it to me.said it was a dual points one if thats right.did get the chrome air cleaner top.
    you'll never guess what he was thinking about doing to the car.

    Good find. Hope the inter. isn't butchered up. (radio opening cut for aftermarket radio,door panels cut for big speakers,roof & headliner drilled for cb/2way radio etc.) Looks like it's pretty complete. Tell us more.

    A total of 782 1972 Ranchero GTs were built with that configuration - good find! That one is a good candidate to fix and keep.

    Very nice looking ride. I would loose the topper. Had one on my 74 for over 20 years made it look too much like a camper special! Keep us posted with progress :)
