Ilyes, if you do sell that to Kevin, I may have something new here at the house that you can use to catch your dream. Hint...they built one on the Speed channel in time for the David Pearson anniversary...

There is another forum member that has first right of refusal on it, and I will give him all the time he needs to decide, but if he says no, then you can have 2nd shot. It has a clear TN title and I know the previous owner.

I won't cut it. If I wanted too, I would sell every parts of it and would end up making money on the car, but I won't.

I'm gonna get a part car and use whatever I need from it. If someone needs a part car, we can buy it for the 2 of us. I'll do my best to save this car, rust isn't really an issue for me, I'm not building a show car.

Btw Jeff, I just got a garage, you won't be able to touch the car, it will be locked Wink
I'll let you seat in it tho, when it's finished

I scrapped my wagon to appease my wife but much of it lives on in my sedan, gpd294's wagon, and the steering column is dirt track racing.



I got a lot more trim and bits off after this pic from 12/09. Scrapped 4/10 for $100. Had I waited a few months it would have fetched double. Got $150 for a much lighter Cutlass Ciera in late 2010.

A '76, I scraped for the tilt colum & power window system. Weird finding those two options on a basic Ranchero 500. The tilt colum was used in my '74 GT everyday driver, 'till I scraped it. The colum &  power window set up will hopefully soon find a perminent home in my '73.

The '74 GT I bought for a D.D.. I paid $1100 for it in 1982, drove it for 10 yrs. 'till the rust took it over.

Does it matter if it's a Torino or not?

1971 Halo roof or springtime special.  No motor or trans, was a 351c 2v car.  paid $50 for it AND the guy hauled it to my house!
had this car been parkd indoors or coverd with a tarp when it was parked, it would have been EASILY savable.  as it was, the cowl was absolute toast and the front floor pans correspondingly so. I made well over $1000 off this car and that was selling stuff CHEAP! 
i need a new scanner so i can scan in the pics of the 75 i gutted/stripped and cut into tiny pieces.

   SORRY I know there is suppose to be pics (just thought you might want to know what I cut up)
 Scraped a 69 mustang coupe (cut it up with an ax and 5#sledge)That really sucked so I bought a set of torches for my second chop job (it was also a 69 stang coupe) So much easier. These were in late 74.  
  Then in 80 I cut up a (SORRY GUYS) 75 gran torino wagon.
  86 I cut up a 75 elite and I hated to do that but it was a money pit and back then this cars were not that popular.
  Since the mid 90s my son and I have cut up 3 fox bodies.
  SORRY about no pictures as this was back when I was just doing it to try and make a few greenbacks.

My uncle had an 87 F-150 sitting in his yard at his farm. He wanted it gone so he gave it to me so I could use the engine for my Torino but it ended up needing a rebuild. Just pulled the 351W and c6, everything else was way to far gone to save. Took it to the scrap yard when the prices were high and got a decent chunk of change.

And yes, that is a tree growing in the back of the truck. Had about a foot of compost pile/dirt in the bed.

Memorial Day weekend I tore this Q Code baby apart and will scrap it this week.
Lots of goodies left, but really got tired of being near the bucket loads of rat feces, so leaving the seat and rear end in it.

Joe...did you pull the axles and carrier? I'd be curious if that has the N case under it.

I did pull the rear end out of it...with a Sawzall and 2 blades. The lower arms are a piece of cake to cut, but the uppers are rough to slice through. I made sure I was not underneath it (all the crud hanging to the undercarriage).

Looks to have been changed out before it was parked. No N case, no tag, awfully clean. With the exhaust system they had on it, and it being a Q Code, there is no telling what it is.

Hmm. So, it's got a standard case. If automatic, and the Q code, I'd wager it was a 3.25:1 geared car, like the 74 Q code I parted out a few years back.

It would have a ''N" embossed on the front of the pumpkin .  My Q code has 3.25 , it's a shame the 1/4s are bad, as I was concidering them.

No N, but door tag shows a code for a 3.25 ratio. I ended up keeping the door tag, dash vin number and both cab numbers off it as a reminder of what a shame it was it became so rotten. I'll pick up the other Ranchero this Friday or Saturday. It is totally complete but will probably end up parted out.
