    Here is the '73 Ranchero Squire Cobra Jet that I picked up for the price of a used engine. Sorry I only have one picture of it before it started snowing here. Here is the brake down:
    Vin 3A49Q192048= 1973, Built in Atlanta,Squire,351 C 4V Cobra Jet.
    Door data plate 97K 6F NZ U 9 76
    That translates to
    1973 Ranchero Squire
    Bright Yellow Matallic
    L/B Flight Bench Tobacco
    C-6 Auto Trans.
    3.25 Conventional Rear Axle Ratio
    Out of Denver Co.
    All the Squire trim was included and will be reinstalled after repaint. It has an all new Front suspension, minor body damage to rt. side door and frt. fender, and bad Torque Converter. Stock A/C still working.

    You know I have always wondered if somebody had gotten a Squire with the Q code engine. Now I know. Next question is how many others are there?
     
  9. How do you left coasters keep finding all this stuff?

    Sarah, it's not just the trucks, my 68 Mustang, my 68 T-Bird,and a 65 T-Bird that I gave to my brother were all some shade of white when I found them, I'm not a big fan of White cars, but it seems the best deals for me end up being white! :eek: :D :mad: ;)
    As far as how many CJ Squires, I'm not sure, but I am getting a Marti Report on it, and I will post what it shows. I would guess not too many built an even less that still exist. This one was almost sold to someone that was going to use the engine for his Mustang, but because I was willing to take the whole car and not just the engine, I am now the owner. ;) :D

    Now that the snow is gone, I have been able to work on the Squire Cobra Jet. Here are some pictures. I also posted these pictures with the Squire Trim restoration link under the Ranchero Tech section.
