This started out to be my wife's 50th birthday present. She is now 73.

THE FIRST THING WE DID WAS TO BUILD A FULL TUBE FRAME THAT WE COULD BUILD THIS VEHICLE ON. ONCE IT WAS A FULL "ROLLER" WE DROPPED THE RANCHERO BODY ONTO IT.

The chassis was custom made by a racing shop in Morgan Hill Calif.

We have worked on it on and off all this time, but we are not going to be able to finish it.

It is licensed in California as a Ranchero. It is a California "non operating" vehicle. This allows us to keep it licensed but not pay the exorbitant fees that California DMV wants.

Everything in the car is new except the body. All of the suspension/brakes are also new.

The pictures show what it better than my descriptions. If you want more of pictures, please get back to me.

I believe that we have saved all the receipts for the parts and work that was done.

This car has only driven on the street once. I drove it from one house in Nipomo to another one. That is why we state that it only has 4 miles on it.

Things that are not finished:

*Hooking up the newSuperTrappmufflers to the exhaust header.

*Buy and put in a new windshield.

*Install the new five point shoulder harnesses for both driver and passenger.

*Buy and install shock absorbers in the front end.

*Buy and put in the rubber door and window trim.

Please ask about anything you want to know. I am sure that I am forgetting something. If I find any more, I will add them to this listing.
