This auction is for a fully restored 1963 Ford Ranchero.This car won a first place award at the 2011 Falcon Club of America’s Annual National Car Show.This restoration took over a year and was completed about 1 year ago and less than 5,000 miles ago.It has a new remanufactured 200 cid motor, a Clifford header, Mallory electronic ignition and Carter fuel pump, a 2-barrel 38 Weber carburetor and a Warner T5 5-speed manual transmission.There’s 49,506 miles on the odometer and I believe this to be the actual mileage.
A partial list of new mechanical parts:
•S&J Engines remanufactured 6 cyl. 200 cid motor bored to .03 over
•a 248 duration cam
•Clifford Performance Dual headers
•Warner T5 conversion kit from Modern DriveLine including clutch and pressure plate

The seat covers are New Old Stock (in a box since 1963).The headliner, door panels and carpet were purchased from Original Falcon Interiors. The knobs and door handles are all new.Every price of chrome was redone.The exterior paint is Tucson Yellow (original factory color) with an off white accent in the panel set off by a teal pinstripe. This paint job is smoother and has less orange peal than you will find on a $75,000 BMW. There are no rock chips in this paint! The interior color is Medium Beige, also the original color.In fact, to interior is done to factory specs accept for the 5-speed gear shift and the hidden stereo which also play from an iPod or iPhone.
All the suspension bushings and several ball joints have been replaced and has new leaf springs.The differential and the suspension is original stock.
