Still very much a work in progress this Ranchero is the child of a previous ‘57 marriage , Gladys, my sedan build that required side spears only found on the Revell wagon body. Body bodies were cut up to achieve the desired trim level on the sedan leaving me with the mis matched remains that were combined to make another wagon. Still with me ? then read on, I have now removed the upper rear from the wagon to give me a Ranchero with stock cab height rather than the odd looking chopped offering from Revell some time ago.
To achieve the low stance I’ve recessed the entire floor and chassis up inside the body, lowering the front inner wing tops and sectioning the bulkhead as necessary. The axles remain box stock and the chassis is above the rocker panel lower edge.
Heres Gladys, the cause of all the work.
And here’s where the bodies were cut.
This is where the Ranchero currently sits.
