For Sale: 1977 Ford Ranchero in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Dallas is pleased to offer this beautiful 1977 Ford Ranchero! COUNT'S KUSTOMS was contracted to rebuild and customize this 1977 Ranchero which spent its entire life in Nevada. The $53,000 project started in early 2014 with the body being removed from the frame and the entire body, frame, suspension, and firewall sandblasted.This Ranchero was intended to be driven frequently with lots of highway miles so the original 400 engine and automatic transmission were replaced with a more powerful and completely rebuilt paring. It now is powered by a 460 engine with a 429 intake manifold. A new out-of-the-box Holly 650 double pumper and fuel rail sit on top. The rebuilt transmission has an electronic gear vendor overdrive added to provide a smooth and more fuel-efficient ride on the highway. Finally, a B&M QuickSilver center council shifter was added to complete the "Hot Rod" power train.During reassembly, all door, hood, and tailgate hinges were replaced. Under the hood Vintage Air (R-134A), a larger power brake booster, and a new radiator with dual electric fans were added. The water pump, fuel pump, power steering pump, spark plugs, and battery have also been replaced recently.The "Count" put his custom touches on the new front grill assembly, and sleek tail lights, totally redone the interior and moved the gas fill door for the new 20-gallon gas tank to inside the bed.The finishing touch was a Count's Kustom Paint job with an ocean shoreline theme. The owner who commissioned the build loved the ocean and visits it often. With this in mind the award-winning paint job depicts water and sand splashing behind each of the four tires and on the tailgate is a large wave"waving" good-bye. White stripes run down the long hood providing the driver with something that catches the eye and the blue-with-white stripes theme was incorporated into the interior upholstery.All the chrome was sent out to be re-chromed and all the stainless trim was buffed. All the suspension parts were replaced and 4-wheel disc brakes were installed. A new dual exhaust system from the headers to the chrome exhaust tips was added. It now rides on a set of 157 & 158 Cragar Vintage chrome 1 piece G/T 5 spoke wheels.Since its completion in March 2014, it has been entered in numerous car and truck shows winning several of them. Total miles are driven by this Customized 1977 Ranchero since completion is just over 5000 miles.This 1977 Ford Ranchero is listed by our Dallas Showroom and can be viewed in greater detail including 100+ HD pictures and an HD video at www.GatewayClassicCars.com.
