Cool Hello from High Falls Ga

I inherited a 1991 ford ranger from my granfather several years ago. We both loved building hot rods, and going to car shows together. I have sat on this little ranger for a while, considering what I wanted to do with the truck. After many months, and years of thought, I have decided to make it a simple street rod. I will be upgrading the drivetrain, suspension, braking system, exhaust, and cosmetics fo the truck. I am dedicating this build to my grandfather, MSGT Lee Killen, USMC.
I will admit, this is my first ford truck, and I am more than willing to take in any advice as far as what to expect making a v-8 work in this truck. I have one out of a 75? LTD ( 302 ). Any and all pointers that you guys can give me, I would appreciatte. Advice as far as what to expect, places to purchase parts, and the best parts to buy. I intend to keep this truck, and pass it on to my 11 year old son when he is of age, so I do not want a drag truck. Just something with the nads to run with the sports cars, and handle itself in the corners...thanks ahead for any advice!!!!

Welcome to FRF Randy.

That's a good reason to make the truck epic
