I was told that this was the original owner that I bought it from, (in Mt. Jackson, VA).  The owner had passed and his sons were selling off the estate.  The car had been barned since 1978, and was starting to deteriorate.
I rebuilt the engine with 390 Ford internal parts - crank rods and cam.  Installed a C-6 Ford transmission with B&M floor shifter - the Teletouch was ruined.  Changed interior to all black.  The roof and body will be painted dark blue, and the scallop will be gloss white.

Car is solid, with very little rust.  Costs too much to restore to original, hence the minor customizing.  The wheels are original with original "E" caps, but also will have a set of 15" chrome smoothies.
It is a Ranger, but has the Pacer front side chrome, don't know if it was a factory mistake or was ordered like that.
