    One of the teachers in my school bought a 1965 Ranchero and wants us to completely rebuild his brakes but I'm having trouble find the partsso I was hoping you could recommend me some websites I could find the parts on

    Remember, the Ranchero and Falcon wagon are built from the same subassemblies (wagons have larger rear brakes than the sedans), so if you can't find the parts under 'Ranchero,' look under 'Falcon Wagon.'

    is it a 6 cylinder or 8?
    brake drums and shoes might be different.
    i would start with dearborn classics or (Ecklers)

    Might take a day or two to get the parts shipped from their warehouses but try asking the guys at your local NAPA parts house. Find a counter person who is literate enough to read an actuall paper parts catalogue from NAPA and you can get every little part you need, and nearly all the big parts that make up that Ranchero. Try that, surprisingly it can be done without flogging the internet. Get savy with parts chasing the old way first then you can tell if what you see on the net is a bargain or someone out to take your money.
