If your Ford had a Matthew McConaughey, it would be a Lincoln

One of my childhood friends just got one badass car.

1972 Ford Ranchero 500. 302 automatic. He got it from his grandfather.

It’s a little rough around the edges. The trans won’t go into park (which I’m hoping is a linkage issue), the paint is a solid 15 footer, and the wheels are not that nice.


His immediate plans are fix the trans, put a Traction Lok (Posi in Chevy terms) in it, and slap on a set of slotted mags, as well as find an original bench or pair of bucket seats for it.

Overall, it’s very cool.
