    I just joined this site. I have owned 2 Ranchero GT's in the past, Black 72 Q code and a Blue 76 460.
    I am ready to buy another one now.
    I want a 72-79 GT or 500.
    Q code 4 speed would be top of my list and 400/429/460 would be next.
    Prefer stock/original.
    Let me know what you have and what you want for it.
    Looking for someone that wants to sell at a fair price.
    My email is inxsbob@aol.com.
    Thank you

    A few thoughts to manage your expectations:

    1- Not many of these are original in all respects, those that are will likely require some work to get them up to your standards.
    2- The total overall cost of one that is in really good shape in comparison to getting a project up to really good shape is going to be very comparable. Meaning, it takes a lot of Rancherobuck$$$$ to get a solid car into good shape, one that has already had it done might actually cost you less in the near and long term.
    3- Be patient - the right car will come along in time.

    I am in no hurry.
    I want a nice stock driver, not a beater/project/show/race car.

    Beautiful ride you have there! I agree first color matched one for me too! (except for my 79 but I did that one myself) really clean.
