HIGHLIGHTS: Funky mild custom Ranchero! Fun, affordable cruiser! Tough to find fourth generation Ranchero! 302 V8 w/ Cruise-O-Matic automatic transmission! All four tires brand new!

BODY OVERVIEW: Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and the body on this Ranchero will take some enthusiasts a few moments to appreciate. This truck (car?) appears to have never received a full restoration, but it looks to have been customized around the late 1980s or early 1990s. Some patches have been performed on the floor pans as well as the bed floor, and to be anything more than a nice driver this car (truck?) would need a full restoration. We are unsure how much active rust this vehicle has but from what we can see it has had previous rust repairs.

PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: Much like the body, the paint is certainly showing its age. This is certainly not original paint, and is likely a 25+ year old respray. Make no mistake, this car could be enjoyed as is, but the paint is best suited for use on an affordable classic driver.

INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: The interior looks to be the same age as the rest of the custom touches this vehicle has received, but has held up better over time. It was certainly put together by someone who knew what they were doing! The seats and headliner have been recovered in what we will affectionately refer to as “city bus seat material.” It is very '90s, very unique, and really suits the aesthetic of this car. Whether this is to your tastes or not, the majority of interior components are in nice condition and would be great candidates for interior restoration.

MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: Under the hood, this car shows signs of maintenance in recent years. The engine bay is showing some age, but the engine still retains that classic Ford small block look and it runs fantastically. The 302 fires right up and this car is very enjoyable to drive! This car runs twice as good as it looks! With a few tweaks, this Ranchero could be made into a reliable cruiser.

WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: The unique overall theme.

WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: The unique overall theme.

We can assist you in delivery through our network of private and commercial carriers most of which can deliver the vehicle to your driveway. We assume no responsibility for damages or delays incurred once a vehicle is in a shipper's custody.

A dealer documentation fee of $250 will be added to the purchase price at the time of sale.

Regardless what is agreed to verbally, we cannot guarantee a vehicle will be held for a potential buyer without a non-refundable deposit collected to hold the vehicle.
