The 1967 Ford Ranchero 500 is a distinct classic, and the
restoration of this one made sure it truly feels vintage. The
result is an all-blue classic cruiser that's likely to make others
green with envy.
The reason why we like a classic like this Ranchero is that it sits
at the intersection of style and distinction. It's based on one of
the best-looking Fairlanes of all time with its muscular stacked
headlight style that was only available for two years. And
generally, we see fewer of the pickup/ute classics than we do the
sedans. That's why a 1967 Ranchero feels so rare, and Chevy sold
nearly double that Ford sold Rancheros. See where this is going?
You have an attractive and familiar look, and yet it sticks out in
nearly any crowd. That's why an example like this gets added care
and attention. It was given a mild restoration in 2014 and has only
been driven about 10k miles since. So the respray of the
factory-correct Medium Blue Metallic paint continues to have a
radiant style in the sunshine. The panels look great, the trim is
complete, the bed is beautifully clean, and the wide bumpers are
mirror-like, so you can really see the intricate detail that whet
into creating this unique car/pickup. And you'll appreciate the
detail work, right down to how you can see the hint of
color-matched steel wheels behind the classic wire hubcaps.
Just like the Fairlane 500, the Ranchero 500 is a more premium trim
level. So this one gives you some upscale style inside with a touch
of wood-like trim in the door panels and nice two-tone seat
upholstery. Even the dash is done in a coordinating two-tone. It's
quite clean and complete, and just like the exterior, it likes to
keep everything quite vintage. So you have the right features of
the day, like the AM radio (currently for display,) a working
heater, and the full-size spare mounted in the well behind the
passenger seat. And the driver's seat feels like a time capsule
with the beautiful blue factory steering wheel and large
speedometer that's as long as the horizon.
Under the hood is a 289 cubic-inch V8. Not only is this the correct
motor for this C-code Ranchero, but you can see they took the time
to really make it look wonderfully stock. So the glossy blue on the
block, valve covers, and air grabber make this motor a standout.
And the overall tidiness not only gives you a good look at the V8,
but it also means it's a properly maintained powerhouse that was
rebuilt during the 2014 restoration. Since this loves to be a true
classic, it also wants you to feel the road a bit more. But
Ranchero also still knows how to be a proper cruiser with a
three-speed automatic transmission, modern cruising tires, and a
nice hum from the dual exhaust.
Complete with the owner's manual, this is a distinctive Ford that
has been kept a true classic. So it's irresistible at this
affordable price. Call today!!!
