mine is nothing fancy, but I do have alot of fun with it.
the car is an Aussie 1982 ford ute, all steel dody and panels, weighs in at 3500 pound with me.
Fords c6 box and 9 inch diff, with moser 35 spline axles.
suspension is 4 link and sway bar, back half chasis.
tyres are 32x14.5 hoosiers
engine is D1VE block, scat crank 4.5, girdle, je pistons, dove c heads, with the usual stuff, and hat injection, and it runs on money and methonol.
for the last three meets it has run faster and faster with different tunes, the best so far is 9.53 @ 141mph.
hope this works;

we are now waiting for the new engine to get here as the old one is now retired.
it will appear again later on as a turbo deal.
but for now we have a new 604 coming just to liven things up.
SVO Block
4.5 crank
billet rods
je pistons
danny bee gear
jessel rockers
titanium valves
profiler heads
and of course the old hat injected metho
this should be fun and will keep you posted.

Damn nice truck. Cool Got any pics? Twisted Evil


It always pisses me off that Ford stopped making the Ranchero here in the states. If they had kept making them here we could have had soooo many more years of similar cool looking stuff too. Sad

I guess the Durango was the last hope for a Ranchero like setup in the states after they were axed at the end of '79.
