I bought it a long time ago and they didn't have the Reissue hardtop body out yet so my plans were to take the 61 Ranchero and make a 65 Ranchero. I know they aren't exactly the same body and roof but I think it is close enough with a little modifications.
Just one of my projects that is on the back burner right now.
