Powerful, vintage, and a lot of fun, this 1974 Ford Ranchero GT
offers you a distinctive classic. After all, with a mean color
combo, A/C interior, enhanced 460 V8 power, and the control of a
five-speed, this powerful driver gets noticed everywhere.
Ford's Ranchero wanted to be both premium and sporty, and that
design translates well into this pickup/coupe. The paint is
positively interesting. The included Marti Report tells us this
came with special paint. While we don't know if that means the
presentation we see here today certainly looks special. Gloss black
with a painted silver GT stripe makes this one look mean (and soon
you'll find out the motor backs up this Ford's appearance.) It's an
overall impressive but driver-quality style. That means it's a
car/truck you'll happily take out on the road and be memorable
everywhere you arrive. After all, it's a great design with wide
chrome bumpers, an angular hood, flared fenders, and a trim line
that runs around the bed, that makes this attractive. Plus,
polished mag wheels are always a good look on a GT.
From the moment you open the door, you can tell this one was made
to keep you comfortable. It starts with late-model plush bucket
seats finished in leather, and they even power adjust to your ideal
position. There are also tinted windows, shoulder seatbelts, and
cold-blowing air conditioning. So while you may update details if
you want a show car, you also know this Ranchero was made to be an
accommodating driver. That's why you also have an upgraded Grant GT
steering wheel and full AutoMeter Phantom gauges... and have you
counted the gears on the Keisler shifter yet?
The engine bay has been filled with mighty big block power. We're
told (although unproven) that it is a John Cozzi-built 460
cubic-inch V8. It is a mean motor with a Holley four-barrel
carburetor, an Edelbrock intake, MSD ignition, and an H-pipe dual
exhaust and Flowmaster mufflers. This is a healthy V8, and you get
enhanced control thanks to a five-speed manual transmission. A
stout 9-inch rear end and wide BF Goodrich tires are the kind of
features you want when using this Ranchero as a muscle car. But the
power steering, power brakes, front discs, and rear traction bar
also make this a nice all-around cruiser.
The sale comes with the Marti Report and $40k in restoration
receipts. This is a powerful and distinct classic that's a ton of
fun on day one. Call now!
