I'm not the biggest fan of Ranchero, but this one is actually quite nice. I like it very much. Good job.

I like this one quite a bit . . . the color, the engine details . . . it's a wonderful model.

Now there's something we don't see very often. That looks great. Nice work.

I second that opinion.

Nice build. I had a 72 Grand Torino GT and my cousin had the Ranchero GT (same year). Both had the 351 cleveland.

It's definetly worth the price ! I have a couple of resin bodies from other manufacturers and never attempted building them because of the extra work involved . I guess you really do get what you pay for !

And thanks again to everyone for your comments !
BOB.

I'm not even a Ford fan and I like this one. I might even be tempted into looking into building my own. Car-trucks like the Ranchero/El Camino/Aussie "Utes" have always appealed to me.

I really like your Ranchero, we could do with a few companies here in the uk to do some stuff like this. I would certainly get hold of some. Thanks for sharing.

Wow! That's one awesome Ranchero. Its a shame there aren't more models of these cool pickups out there.

Great job on this one,hopefully a company like revell or AMT will make a new tool for this in full detail so it doesn't cost triple digits to build one.

Thanks Jim , Mark , Pauli , and Austin .
Austin , Actually the kit costs $55 and I paid less than $5 for the yellow paint . Everything else was just normal supplies I already had , and the engine was in my parts box . I've spent more than that building a styrene kit before ! The best part is the Ranchero body looked as nice as a styrene body , not like a lot of resin bodies available for a lower price that require tons of work before you can even spray some primer !

Beautiful ranchero Bob. The front ends on those old rancheros are so mean looking. A lot of nice detail, great build

Thank you Carl , Gary , Jason , and Johan . I've always loved the front end of this year Torino . This resin piece was really easy to sand and open the grille up instead of using a wash .

I forgot to mention that the Ford Blue on the engine is actually Rustoleum Sail Blue # 7724 . I've used it on a few 1:1 engines and it is a perfect match .
It's costs a lot less too !
