1960 Ford Ranchero

Recommended Posts

This is my first build since July, just finished it today. It's the AMT Little Eliminator Ranchero kit, built as a stock Ranchero. Weird kit - full of unneeded parts: customizing junk from the old Styline kit, wheels and a Chevy V8 from the '61 Ranchero custom, and other junk. It's missing a battery, an inside mirror, shock towers, underhood diagonal braces, and, worst of all, a 6 cylinder engine! I used a resin 6 from eBay, and made some towers and braces to look somewhat like the real truck. Parts boxes yielded a mirror and battery, and I turned down the wheel rims a bit. They covered up half of the whitewalls. Paint is Krylon peekaboo blue with Testors wet look clear. Not the best model ever, but kinda cute, I think!
