For Sale: 1974 Ford Ranchero in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

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!
