The Ford Ranger V8

I bought my ranger in 2010 and pulled the 3.0 V6 out to put in a 302 Small Block Ford Engine. It has a T-5 Manual trans and a 10:1 Compression bored out .30 over 306 block. Everything to do with the drivetrain is brand new and the truck fires right up and is very fun!

In addition to the great F150 pickup line and the dropping of the Ranger; how about a return to the basic, less expensive, "plain Jane" F100 style of pickups from the late 1960's?  A simple truck, small quantity runs, maybe using up the old F150 frames as Ford moves to Aluminum Construction.  Even having bench seating if possible.  I know retooling costs but in small runs, using older tooling and leftover parts,  one or two engine offerings (or maybe none--V8 only!),  it may still be profitable.  Our favorite farm truck was our 1971 Ford in that awful avocado green....but boy, what a truck, beat the hell out of our old Chevy.....the way it is meant to be.....
