I need a frame along with some other parts for my 1972 Torino  project. I know a coupe frame will work on a fastback but will a 1972 Ranchero frame work?? How about the doors?

The Ranchero frame is the same as the wagon and therefore has a longer wheelbase than the fb.

Yup - 114 inches for 2 doors, 118 inches for 4 doors/wagons/Rancheros.

How soon you need it? I've got a '72 2 door frame but it's grown in with blackberries and will have to be cutout.

lucky for me I didn't that ranchero yet.  I'm in the middle of another project and was starting to gather parts for the Torino.  Any idea what condition the frame is and how much?

Ditto that.  The rear of the wagon from is parallel to the ground.  The rear of the Ranchero frame angles up.
