This first-year 1957 Ford Ranchero has a serious V8 upgrade and full a custom color package. So dig into the details of an exceptionally cool cruiser that you can pick up for an affordable price.
When was the last time you saw a 1957 Ranchero? It's probably been a while because these pickups with car-like sensibilities are quite rare. In fact, Ford barely made just over 20,000 of these in this inaugural year... and that was over 60 years ago. So it's great to have a complete and shining custom example like this, because so few are around today. In fact, this is a one-year-only style that has unique features like the single headlight, outward pointing grille, and thick chrome bumper. And this example adds flair to its rarity. The purple metallic and ivory two-tone paint has a great shine that instantly announces this is a custom machine. But it also respects its history. For example, this uses correct factory full-length trim line as a dividing line for the two colors, and it looks terrific as it sharply dips behind the doors. There's a street machine attitude with vintage performance upgrades like the Cragar SS wheels, half chrome headlight eyelids, streamlined tonneau cover, and large dual exhaust tips.
The exterior purple returns on the interior dash and doors, but we bet that's not what first caught your eye. Those brown velour seats have the kind of street machine attitude that will make you want to listen to Lowrider on demand (and with the upgraded AM/FM/cassette stereo w/CD changer, that's no problem!) But more than just distinctive. The ultra-cushy seats also have individual armrests, so your all-day comfort is basically guaranteed. Plus, with the Grant sports steering wheel and upgraded gauges (w/Bosch tach) you know there's some serious power behind this cruiser attitude.
The forward-tilting hood gives you a clear view to all the big block power. The 460 cubic-inch V8 inhales deeply with a Holley four-barrel carburetor. And it exhales with a sweet big block tune out of the dual exhaust. The whole engine bay has the look of quality, from the crisp hoses to the upgraded aluminum radiator w/electric fan. So that's why this motor fires up nicely and runs strong. The C6 three-speed transmission was built stout to handle all this power and torque while delivering easy automatic shifting. Plus, power steering, front disc brakes, and wide Cooper Cobra tires give this a nice driving experience.
This first-year Ranchero has been upgraded for looks and power. So you know it's the cool classic you need to get your hands on right now. Call today!!!
