    Just purchased a 1968 but don't pick it up until Monday(1-7-19).. Will post pics when I get it home.. I'm sure I'll have many questions and hope to be a contributing member, Milo... P.S. It's a 302/ C4.. Is the rear end an 8" or 9"???

    Hey Carl. I'd guess an 8", as all three of my 1970's were (two 302 and 0ne 250/6). Easy visual check when you get it.

    I'm excited to pick it up tomorrow.. I guess I'm also excited because it's our 46 wedding anniversary.. At least I better act like I'm excited...

    Old?.. Is there an Age Limit? Do I have to take my shoes off to count that high?

    It's not how old you are, just how old you feel or act, I guess I need a extra pair of shoes.

    It's not the age...it's the aches, pains and the scars on your fingers and the backs of your hands.

    I tell my wife that working on the Ranchero keeps me out of bars, and keeps me from chasing girls. ;)

    My '69 has kept me out of trouble... and every time I push the pedal to the floor, I feel much younger!

    Thanks for info^^.. As soon as it warms a little I'll take some pics.. I'm changing wheels and tires and want pics with steelies and dog dish caps.. It came with Mustang Mach 1 and Torino GT 14x7 rims with the special Sports wheel covers.. I'm hoping to sell them to pay for my new wheels and tires...
