Keep us updated. The ranchero has a really nice body. What year is the lightning motor and did it come out of a F150?

did way more cutting today than i planned on. The Fairlane tunnels are tiny.The tailshaft is down 2% in the pic and the cross member I am fabing up will adjust up and down. Hope to get that done tomorrow.

wagon. I welded angle to the c4 cross member and than flat plate to that angle iron.Used the c4 trans mount. The plan now is to make a new tunnel and have it ready to transfer over to the ranchero.

made a trans tunnel to go in the ranchero when i am ready Hope to push it up in from the bottom to make welding it in better Used some refrigerant cylinders for the 16 gauge metal The 2000 mustang shifter works well but not sure what is up with that cable i cut that is in the pic.It will not let you get out of park with tension on it and you release the tension by stepping on the gas. If that is all it is, then I
