Since I got some nice feedback on my posting of the ancient Rancheros, here's a follow up. I was going to put a bunch of old Valiants in one post, but then got to looking at the pictures I have of this one and wanted to share all the aspects...

Here's one of my favorite Valiant customs! The original builder used custom parts from the Ranchero kit as well as wood grained cardboard to make the pickup box.

Full fabric interior too! Body and paint work leaves a bit to be desired though! :rolleyes: Still a very cool piece and a high light in my old custom collection.

That is great,where did you find that model? Some of these old customs are like automotive folk art.

I've been seeking them out a long time! I've got enough of a reputation that friends spot them for me at shows, email me eBay auctions and actually give 'em to me. I guess I'm seen as a safe depository for these!

All I can say is "Wow!"

It warms my heart that someone saw this in their mind and tried it ... this is what this hobby is all about! :)

Wow. To take a really ugly car and make it that much uglier really takes some talent. I love it...really.
