Ranchero experts?

Post by goddard » Sun 13 May 2018, 15:56

So, now that I have a '73 Ranchero 351 v8, I am interested in knowing a bit more about these...
How many 351 v8 Rancheros were produced here in SA?
How many are still on the roads?
How many 302 v8 Rancheros were produced here?

I have gone through the forum, but don't think anybody touched on these questions...

Well I am going to be controversial and say I doubt any of the 73's were originally 351's I speak under correction though. Based on what I know all were 302c though lots acquired 351's during their lives.
Alfa GTV 3.0
Ford Capri Perana V8
Chevy Lumina Supercharged

Wait not for tomorrow to do what can be done today, live each day for one knows not what the next day may hold.

Correct! No Ranchero ever had a 351C from factory. I had 20 or more!
No problem as I can make a 302C with same firing order as the 351C run away from a 351C. No magic. Stromberg 2 barrel carburetor and all.
