What are you looking do? Is it just a daily driver? Then fix up what needs repairing and drive and enjoy it. Is it going to be an occasional car and for cruising? Restore it to showroom original, or mod it. Go online to a few Ranchero forums and see what other owners are doing.

This is still just the basic, body on frame machinery that the Americans built for decades- as such, it will run forever if you just keep replacing worn-out parts- don't wreck it, and don't rust it- hot rod it if you want to, because they made a lot of these and they are not extremely valuable-
