Can't decide between a muscle car, premium classic, and a cool
vintage truck? No problem. You can have it all in this 1967 Ford
Ranchero 500XL. With the unique exterior, premium interior, and a
289 V8 under the hood, it's an attractive total package.
We bet it's been a while since you've seen a Ranchero based on fifth-generation Fairlane, right? That's because these are rare. In fact, there were less than 1,900 examples produced of this range-topping 500XL in 1967. So how many of those do you think survived half a century looking this good? The panels look fantastic, the trim is complete, and the bumpers are wide and mirror-like, so you can really see the intricate detail that when into creating this unique car/pickup. The factory-correct Springtime Yellow is understated in many situations, but thanks to a respray it really pops in the sunlight. Plus, this has all the best '60s Ford features, like the stacked headlights, 289 callouts on the fenders, and the stylish 14-inch GT-style Deluxe wheel covers.
The Ranchero in premium 500 XL trim really showcases its upscale mission inside with handsome stitching on the bucket seats, a center console, and lots of chrome on the instrument panel. So this feels more like a luxury classic than a pickup truck. The dash has even been freshly painted to keep this premium attitude. But beyond just looking great, there is a feeling of originality. You see in large horizontal speedometer that's bright and clear. You feel it when gripping the artful factory steering wheel. The level of care in this one goes right into the details like the factory clock and AM radio - both of which are still working perfectly today. You even have factory air conditioning that has been converted to R134a.
Under the hood is Ford's 289 cubic-inch V8. It's the same unit that was available in the Mustang, so when matched with a four-barrel carburetor, this has plenty of power to keep the dual exhaust making the proper throaty sounds. On the more practical side, the optional three-speed automatic transmission is flexible enough that you can take this car everywhere from around town, to long trips down the highway. This same easy cruising attitude goes for the power steering and power brakes.
Rare and interesting with a striking number of surviving components - this Ranchero going to be the star in someone's garage. So don't miss this deal, call today!
