For Sale: 1968 Ford Custom in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

It's hard not to be attracted to a cool cruiser like this 1968 Ford Custom Ranch Wagon. With a big V8, some upgraded attitude, and a ton of seating, this is the perfect machine for someone who wants versatility and distinction.

The V8 station wagon like this was an expensive car. You went past some full-size hardtops and convertibles on the price list before you got to the ten-person Custom Ranch Wagon. So you're already looking at the distinction of a rarity even before you dig into the details. The trim tag tells us this was born the delicate shade of Diamond Blue. This color was only around for a few years at Ford, and this one has been given a quality respray later in life. This gives it a good gloss that shows off the well-fitting panels and the full-length crease with sporty kick-up in the rear doors. This one also goes for the right hints of a cool grocery-getter with the upgraded headlights, redline grille, and tinted windows. Plus, the 20-inch Torq Thrust wheels give this a terrific upgraded stance.

The deep blue interior keeps a vintage appearance filled with eye-catching details. The first two seats have a terrific classic look, including stylized inserts and a hint of premium wood on the dash. Fords of this era were centered around the driver. The two-tier instrument panel is pure vintage style. Plus, this ultra-clean setup has the best vintage features, like the artful steering wheel, ultra-wide speedometer, and working AM radio. There are even provisions for factory air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) You'll appreciate how the big wagon gives you a rear built for big cargo, but what you'll really love showing off are the opposing jump seats that make this a rare ten-passenger hauler. So it has the kind of distinct style that will have you bring everyone to the car shows.

This was born with a 390 cubic-inch V8, and so it's great to still have the big displacement in the engine bay. Plus, this one has been upgraded for better modern driving. This includes a four-barrel carburetor for added pep, and an aluminum radiator w/electric fan to help keep the V8 package running cool. Plus, power steering, power brakes, front discs, and a three-speed automatic transmission make it a great cruiser. And the upgraded wheels mean you also get to fit modern/grippy tires.

This Ranch Wagon has a cool style and true usefulness. So when it's also this affordable, you know you can't go wrong. Call today!!!
