Which brings us to just a few years ago, when I sold both cars to move to Oregon from North Carolina. After coming to Oregon, deciding to stay, and finding employment, I began the quest to find another Comet, Falcon or Ranchero - preferrably 1964 or 65. I must have looked at 10 or 15 other cars before I came across this Ranchero.

Checking the VIN number showed it was an original factory V8 and someone had already put front disk brakes on it. I also liked the fact that it had a cover over the bed with a spoiler and the price was within the range I was looking for.
