Your first and only post here on a Mustang forum is help with pricing on a Ranchero......why not join and place this on a Ranchero forum?

Not a flame, this is a Great Mustang board, but I'm not sure how many of us are Ranchero savvy.

Wife,........."You drove how far for that thing?"
Daughter,..."Theres no inside and it stinks."
Friend,......."Dude, thats a rusted piece of sheet."
Son,.........."This old car is cool."

A friend of mine in high school had a green 72' and it was his baby. The advent of the 73' bumpers, that's what kills it for me. Note the difference from 72' and see what I mean:

You want a fair price on a Ranchero when we can't even agree on a fair price for a Mustang!

Auction Value of K-code Fastback

Value of this 1966 K-code Coupe

I'll play, but...we need some photos, whats he asking, what do you want to pay, and can you do the fix up work yourself...............if you buy it, you have to come back and tell us what you paid for it, what you want to do to it, and ask questions like how much for body and paint, or how much to rebuild the engine,,,that sort of stuff. I like the rancheros, and I hope you get it! Welcome to VMF, we will help you spend your money!

'73 not as desirable as a '72. Should get a real decent one for $10K or less.

Ford seemed to enjoy confusing us! 70/71 Torino similar design to 69/70 Mustang. Then 71-73 Mustang pretty much all new including the more modern integral power steering. 72 and up Torino was all new including integral power steering plus back to body on frame construction.

I loved the looks of the 72 Grand Torino. Problem was no vert! The 72 Ranchero was IMO super looking!!


My '64 1/2 vert. Ordered May '64. D code 4 speed, handling package, caspian blue, accent group, Ford blue manual top.

'68 vert. driver. Owned since Apr '78. C code AT, AC, PS, P disc B, PT lime gold, standard black interior and top. NOS RF fender and left quarter.New top and folding glass.
