1978 Ford Ranchero
The 1978 Ford Ranchero

1978 Ford Ranchero

Styling went unchanged for the 78' Ranchero and included many standard features such as power steering and brakes, vinyl trim, carpeting and more. The Squire model came with a simulated woodgrain paneling. 

This GT is the most luxurious of the Ford Rancheros with a sleek look that beckons you to take the wheel and see what luxury driving was in 1978.  Features and equipment include a handsome GT stripe, dual sport mirrors and (bright hub caps with trim rings).

Offering all of the comforts and conveniences of a classic luxury car with all of the hauling and towing ability of a small truck!  No wonder these babies were so popular for such a long time!

This '78 Ranchero body style with stacked rectangular headlights is among the most popular for collectors.
