This 1957 Ford Ranchero has V8 power, two-tone paint, and charm
that goes right down to the whitewalls. So this is your chance at a
very vintage version of the first year Ford ever offered this
Not only is '57 the first year for the Ranchero, but also its quite
distinctive. It was the only year for the single headlight design
that had a custom frenched look direct from the factory. This is
especially noticeable on a vehicle that finished in a discernable
white and green two-tone. These first-year Rancheros have all the
right classic style elements, like the full-length trim, tailfins,
and jet-inspired taillights. Even the wheels have a great vintage
charm with a package that includes color-matched steelies,
intricate factory-style hubcaps, and whitewalls. And of course,
nothing beats the style of a vehicle the was developed to run hay
bales in the bed during the week, and still have enough style and
comfort to also go to church on Sunday.
The black interior has a nice classic look. Everything from the
wraparound windshield, to the heat/defrost controls, to the artful
three-spoke steering wheel give this a very vintage atmosphere.
They also made sure it's a nice place to spend some time with
investments in newer fundamentals, like the seat upholstery,
carpeting, and door panels. The added oil pressure and battery
readouts also make it a better driver's machine.
The hood tilts forward for a sporty look, and within it you'll find
Ford's 292 cubic-inch Y-block V8. The bold blue block shining valve
covers, and shining air topper give it a nice look. Plus, it's
supported by good components like newer hoses and an aluminum
radiator. The V8 fires up nicely as it inhales deeply with a
four-barrel carburetor. And the full-length dual exhaust give you a
sweet-sounding tune. You get to remain in full control of it all
thanks to the column-shifted three-speed manual transmission.
This first-ever Ranchero is a classic with plenty of charm. So if
