    I have a 67 Ranchero which I love. I am curious about the significance of this year versus others. One would think this year would be more valuable due to the Fairlane chassis and styling. How many of these did they make? Did they make more of other years? I'm also curious how many Rancheros were produced compared to El Caminos. Any other 67 fun facts you all could share? Thank you.

    Your 67 is beautiful Saff, Looks like it sits strait too. I wish mine did. Changed front springs and shocks and new rear leafs and have 1.5" sag in front drivers side. I am taking it to a friend that is a mechanic / engineer and hopefully he'll pinpoint the problem. I'm dying to know whats causing it.

    Actually its the same Chassis and body as the 66 66/7 fairlanes and falcons shared the same platform. Just the front sheet metal and dash was different. Ln 67 they changed the Ramchero over to Fairlane. The Falcon and Fairlane line was being phased out for the new Pinto compact Maverick and Torino take over the small and midsize car positions. 66 to 69 falcons did not receive any major styling updates 70 shared the torino/fairlane body . In 68 the Torino name was added to the midsize line 69/71 Fairlanes and Torinos shared the same body 72 Fairlane name was nomore

    Hmmm … I thought the 1964 was a more valuable year, because it was only offered in 1964. After that, Ford moved on to the 1965 model year. ;) Actually, I drive a '64, but the '66 - '67 is probably my favorite, strictly from an aesthetics viewpoint. I don't think any year is particularly valuable, simply because you either love or hate the car/truck styling. Just my two cents.

    Well, I'll through in my 2 cents worth of opinion: I've liked '67 as well but about a year ago almost purchased one with a 351W. After driving it just had too much of a "sedan feel" to me (totally subjective) and I couldn't get out of my mind, from way back when, watching a '66 El Camino with a 396 blow away a '67 Ranchero with a 390....

    I guess I've never really seen the FE family as a performance block. I have a 352 in my '67 F250 now, and I may swap in a reconditioned crank and connecting rods this summer to turn it into a 390, but it will still be a truck. Thirsty, too, but it will haul a load all day long, and never complain.

    I also have enjoyed the look of the 66/67 body style... but my favorites are the '68-71... with the '69 being my absolute favorite! Obliviously! :rolleyes:
