I've posted mine here in another thread, but will add to this one. 79 Ranger XLT, original paint and interior but I have added a few dealer accessory options along the way. It turned over 30,000 original miles coming back from Super Cel East in April. I've pretty much had a second gen in the driveway or garage since 1985, and always will. Found this one in December 2013.

Mine is currently under the knife. I've had it for 20 years and barely did anything with it for the first 17. I bought it in college and life got busy, got married, had kids, all the things. Started getting serious about getting it fixed up a couple years ago. Still don't get as much time working on it as I'd like but I'm making progress. Here are a few before and after/during pics.

460 converted to EFI
4 inch lift
35 inch tires
Original freewheeling package

It's going to look great when you're finished! Keep updating us with pictures.
Did you use the Holley System for the fuel injection conversion?

Thanks! It's mostly OEM Ford stuff from a 90's 460, so it's a multi port system vs TBI. Heads, and intake from the 90's engine were swapped on to the old 460 block, used a low profile throttle body from https://460efiguys.com/ and also had them rework the Ford ECM and wiring harness. So far it works great, but I don't really have any miles on it. If I decide I want more ability to tune it I may eventually think about switching over to a Holley Terminator computer/wiring harness.
