Description for Ford Ranchero 1973
Wow this 1973 Ford Ranchero is a lot of big block-powered coolness for not a lot of cash. Refinished in a subtle period color combination, t's also packing a stout 460 cubic inch V8, nd did I mention what a great price it carries? Wow!The body and paint were restored a few years ago, nd it still shows pretty well. Not over-done, ut it has a great shine that you'll be proud to wax on Saturday afternoons, ut not so perfect you'll be afraid to still use it as intended. Clearly never a working machine, t shows no signs of rust or damage that would suggest abuse, nd the only notable demerits are some chips in the usual high-traffic areas like the edges of the doors. The Ranchero got a facelift in 1972, hich included a new grille and headlights and body panels that closely mirrored its brother, he Torino. Silver side stripes add to its sporty demeanor, erfectly capturing the playfulness of the early '70s. The bed is refinished with a spray-in bed liner so it'll stay clean and doesn't mind doing a few chores on weekends, nd again, t doesn't look like it ever had to work for a living. Nice chrome bumpers are probably original and even as such, hey're in OK condition, ut if you're looking for a place to upgrade, hat might where you should start.The interior will tell you more about this car than just about anything else because it's almost entirely original. Yes, hat factory-issued bench seat hasn't been abused by a guy wearing a tool belt, he carpets are clean enough to have never seen a set of dirty boots, nd the door panels are brand new. Yes, t's a little faded and scuffed here and there, ut the seats have been recently re-dyed so the look is very uniform. A custom steering wheel looks great in the medium green driver's compartment, nd five round dials matched by a set of auxiliary gauges underneath promise a high-performance experience behind the wheel. The original AM/FM radio still lives in the dash, urther suggesting that this truck/car's owner's had their priorities in the right place. There's also some modest storage behind the seats, hich is especially important when your trunk is open to the elements. A 460 cubic inch V8 lives under the hood, massive upgrade over the wheezing smog motor that lived there originally. There's a big cam inside, o it cackles at idle and pulls ferociously at any speed, nd it's supported by a set of roller rockers, n Edelbrock intake manifold, nd a big Holley carburetor up top. MSD supplied one of their ignition setups and the wires are new. With a recent tune-up, t starts quickly and idles smoothly with a great V8 burble from the long-tube headers and straight pipes underneath. It's backed by a C6 3-speed automatic transmission that was built to work for a living and the 9-inch out back shrugs off the big torque churning through it. The chassis and floors are quite clean, lbeit original, nd there's just nothing like a highly original car out on the road. Handsome chrome Cragar wheels show no curb rash or damage, nd have been fitted inside 225/60/15 front and 275/60/15 rear BFGoodrich radials.A very fast, ery appealing truck, r, ar, t's only a matter of time before Rancheros become prized collectables, o get a good one today while they're still giving them away.
