I have a 1969 ford ranger that is currently going through a overhaul, we have it torn down to the frame exept for the cab and it is going into the shop to get a 1973 lincolnl continental clip installed(complete front frame and IFS from the front of the truck to the front of the cab). after that i am debating putting it on air bags. and the best part! we have a 4.6L engine out of a 2005 Mustang GT that will be going in it. after all the major fabrication and it runs i want to installl a blow through with 2 or 4 15's. I will post pics a little later especially if anyone is interested ( there are some of my truck already in my gallery

While it has been a while, I have done a few frame-up restorations in my life and know the absolute devil they are to do... And you're taking even that to a different level... You've got a little bit of stubborn in you, good luck in getting it all done, looks like you are coming along good though!

nice, i didn't think that engine would fit in a ranger... reminds me of the old ford concept ranger "thunderbolt" with a 5.4l supercharged triton V8... looks like quite a task... do you have a projected finish date?
