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
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
