    15" American Racing Torq-Thrust Grey. Front tires are P215/70R15 and rear are P225/60R15. I bought new springs for it, front and rear. Front are for a 1970 Torino w/429, and the rear springs are built to factory specs by JR Spring, in Detroit. The rocker sits level with the ground, pretty much. I sort of wish the front was a little lower, but that'll happen over time.

    Nice, thanks for the info. Do you know the backspacing? Or can you point me to general info for backspacing needed on this car?

    I'll have to dig out the receipt for the wheels. I can't remember stuff from 10 years ago, for some reason.

    BB sent me a janky old GT emblem, which I took apart, repainted, polished and installed. It's not perfect, but it looks better than the regular Ford one that was on there. I would like to get a really nice one some day.

    boring to you because you do not have a Ranchero project and when you did all you did was let sit in the drive way and RUST

    emblem looks good from 20 feet Sean

    Not in the couple places I've listed it. There's still some stuff that needs fixing before I can get top dollar, and it seems more stuff each time I look. You interested?

    Interested to see what you get for it - especially with all the effort and stellar work you put into it. I've got two already and haven't been able to free up the time I need to get mine where I want them. I just don't have the time and energy for another one.

    He might sell the e.blem if he finds a better one, but I doubt that's he is selling the beast.

    Hopefully more than it's worth. Like I said, I need to fix a few things (large opening around steering column, rattling wood bed floor, etc.) before I can ask and expect top dollar. It'll probably be sold to some fool overseas, because that's who pays the most. Overseas fools.

    Be nice Sean, their money is as green as ours is. It works both ways too, our mundane rides are exotics to them like their daily drivers are exotics to us. Got a very sharp Swedish connection who might help you. PM me if you want his name and number.
