SHO I was just kidding about that. I really would save my suggestion for a last resort. I also wouldn't try to use a tow dolly though, if it were me I'd use a flat bed trailer and winch it up. Gusee you gotta use what ya got though. We have a flat bed, but no tow dolly.


So how's the Ranger GT looking?!?! I wanna see some better pictures!! LOL

Why not put a 5.0 in it? lol

I to am interested in seeing how it sits now assuming you got it home.

The original motor and transmission are gone, with no real chance of finding it, so no way it can be a numbers matching vehicle. With that in mind and since you've got to come up with a drive train for it anyway I'd put in a 302 backed by a TKO500 with mid-shift. With that combo you should be able to give it the power it should have had stock, and retain stock look on the inside.
