Looks cool. I think I would have taken the time and shortened up the wheel base the couple inches so the rear tires were in the wheel wells

Wonder why they have black tape over the overdrive spot on the shifter bezel? Bet the overdrive is out in it...typical A4LD LOL. My AAMCO rebuild seems to be doing fine so far at about 2 years since its been rebuilt...hope it lasts a long time.

An appropriate marriage! no other car rusted out faster than the Falcon and no other truck frame rusted faster than the Ranger may they rest in piece, or is that together?

Pretty slick thugh, how I like it!
