You've got that old Y-block looking really good. Did you do any performance upgrades? Looks like the interior may need just a little work.:) Also looks like it might take the same windshield as the square birds. Should be sweet when you get her done. Mike

Say where did you find that Ford HEMI (yea I saw the writing on the valve cover - funny)

Shoot - a little motor work, slap some interior in there, maybe 2 or 3 cans of paint - you'll be finished in 2 months easy !!! (and Santa Clause is coming 2 times this year)

Be great to follow the progress - keep us posted. Looks like it's going to be a slight resto-mod? What color you thinking about?

Tully, your Ranchero has a lot of potential. Looks like you got a 292. How does it run? I love how they sound, it's that classic sound that no other engine could duplicate. If you need any pic's from my 292 rebuild, you can find them HERE. (http://home.comcast.net/~simplyconnected/projects/) <--click

Tully sent me this email about the work on his '59 Ranchero engine.

"Just finished the engine in the 59 Ranchero and reinstalled it. first fire up. I'll finish up under the hood tomorrow and start on the interior next."

He sent me a short video clip of the engine running. CLICK HERE for the video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pb4iR_QQW7A)

Dennis sent me some more pix of the work on his '59 Ranchero! It is looking nice! Here is what he had to say.

"I got a master cylinder and booster from old Irish Dave and installed it. I now have disc brakes completed! Now on to the interior. Got a set of seats out of a 2000 Chrysler sebring just need to dye them black. And they're power to boot for $50."

Here are the pix.

Dennis she is sure looking pretty cool, especially with all the chrome package. I am sure the seats will be benefical, as they look very comfortable and a nice dress up feel to the interior.

I had asked Dennis what he used for a mounting bracket to install the dual MC and power Booster. He said he used the one that came with the unit. He did not have to worry about getting past an AC plenum box and it all hooked right up okay. Here is the pic of OID's neat looking system.
