Vehicle Description

AACA national award winner

This lovely Ranchero custom sport exceptional 2 tone paint, a like new painted bad, and tons of excellent chrome and trim.

It’s clean from bottom to top, all the doors shut properly, and it simply shows signs of regular conscientious maintenance throughout its life.

The three-tone interior is simply excellent, sporting air-conditioning, dual spotlights, and an AM radio among all the chrome imaginable. There’s no wonder that an AACA national award badge accompanies the car.

 The engine bay is nicely preserved with correct finishes throughout including the Ford blue paint on the big V-8 engine itself, which is likely original.

 It fires up quickly and easily, idles easily, and pulls out hard on the open road.

The transmission shifts as it should, and the 9-inch rear is full of highway friendly 2.91 gears, making this an ideal long-distance cruiser you can comfortably drive to any car show anywhere in the country.

 In 1960 the Ranchero will be redesigned and land on the compact falcon chassis and would never again be part of the full-size Ford lineup. Extremely popular with a 1959 Ford fans the Ranchero is a hot collectible particular with the ultra-rare 352 cubic inch V8. This one is fully sorted and presents beautifully, a car that can drive regularly and still show proudly at virtually any event in the country.
