    Hi all it's been a while hope all are doing well.
    I am still working on my 1962 Ranchero, getting close to paint now.
    I am considering buying a 1966 Ranchero but don't know a whole lot about them and can't seem to find out much about them anywhere either. If I get one I am thinking about installing a Coyote engine setup in it. Are the front suspension and frame rails the same as the Failanes of the same year?

    Saw a couple of swaps done in 1964 Falcons at the local FCA event that took place here a couple of weeks ago, they gave me inspiration and made me realize it's a pretty nice fit with a MII set up.

    yeah, that would be nice setup. rack and pinion, lose the shock towers for sure. 9" rearend, overdrive and all the electronics to go with it. you got a new "old" ranchero.
