1978 Ford Ranchero - Headers, New Dual Exhaust, Hei Dist, more...
I have owned this car for approx; 4 years now. Previous engine was junk so I removed it. It also was a 351W. Had a junky intake with an old delco 2 barrel.
I had the radiator chemical treated and flushed.
Engine swap over from a 77 Thunderbird with 62,000 miles - Ranchero reads 78,000 miles. It has the 351 Windsor engine. Block and heads was painted mustang/ford blue.
Electric windows, cruise control.
Had headers added with brand new dual exhaust. New water pump, thermostat, and gaskets. Timing chain, some new belts and hoses also.
Took all the smog and ac off. Got rid of the old two barrel and the old intake. Upgraded to a high rise with a 600 cfm carb.
I got rid of the old distributor system and upgraded to an HEI. New plugs and wires. The engine picture Does Not Illistrate all of the engine upgrades. It was only after the initial engine swap but more things have been done since. I will add or send pics per request.
Some old break lines was replaced. I have all the receipts.
The car is in good running condition. I would drive it to California and back with no worries.
As of right now the interior does need some work. Seat has a rip and a few dash cracks.
The truck has heat, all ac parts was taken off. Easy enough to reverse if one was so inclined. Parts would have to be purchased though.
The windshield needs replaced. It has a sizable crack. There is a shop that quoted me under $300 to replace.
There is a large dent in the tail gate - but the tail gate closes like new.
There is a custom truck cap that goes with it.
Some small rust through at the bottom of fender and quarters but is very repairable.
