This is a beautifully restored STOCK Ranchero. If you like it stock …look at this one!
It is a pleasure to drive! It runs, hifts and stops very well. It’s quick!!
To the best of our knowledge, verything is original…from the body, o the trim, o the running gear. The insignias were replaced as they were tarnished.
This Ranchero was purchased from the Pioneer Auto Museum in Murdo, .D. Several insurance cards and the old title indicate it came from California. It was complete with all trim and only some minor door dings – no damage, o rust, ery solid, nd just in need of an interior redo and new paint. It appears to be all original. The engine and transmission had been gone through and it ran great. I drove it to work for two weeks before the restoration just to identify and work out any bugs. I have driven it over a thousand miles with no problems. It really is fun to drive!
A complete strip down was done … all trim, lass, ide windows, tc. were removed before a professional strip and repaint was undertaken. The color is close to the original but with more life. The cat whiskers, oor rubbers, tc. were all replaced. The bumpers and bed corners were re-chromed. All trim was cleaned and polished.
The only rust we found was on the front floor pans, hich were replaced with new replacements. Everything else is solid … bottoms of the doors, enders, ockers, ed, ear floor pans.
The interior was completely redone. Seat covers, oor panels, eadliner and carpet were replaced with factory identical fabrics, oam and designs. The original jack and tools are there, long with the spare.
All the glass but the windshield was reused. The windshield had started to delaminate on the edges, o a new replacement was installed.
The only items not stock:
The 4-barrel carburetor was replaced with an Edelbrock withelectric choke on the original manifold.
A Sony AM-FM Pushbutton Radio replaced the original AM only model. It works!
The interior of the bed was coated with bedliner.
An auxiliary oil pressure gauge was added. The light still works.
The full wheel covers are correct and are extremely rare!
New plugs, ires, ap, tc. were installed and the engine was detailed.
The truck is equipped with the optional 4-way flasher in the glove box. It works. Headlamps, aillights, ack-up lights, urn lights and license light all work.
The heater has been by-passed, ut discreetly.
The original AC is complete. The compressor is bad and noisy. The clutch and dash switch work correctly, s does the fan. We had it converted and tried it, ut the AC man said “change the compressor”… but it looks original. A replacement can be found on eBay for $150 to $225; however, ost all old cars in south Florida replace it with a new high efficiency pump. NPD lists a complete compressor with brackets and all for the 289 for $420, thers for less, ut then it doesn’t look stock.
The Ranchero odometer shows about 24,170 miles …I’m still driving it. It had about 23,100 miles when I purchased it. I have a California title dated 11/27/99 from the California owner to the museum that shows 72,850 miles.
Come look and drive it…drive it home if you’d like. It’s not perfect but it’s very nice and runs great. The Ranchero is located in Punta Gorda, lorida. We’ll gladly pick you up at the Ft. Myers or our local airport.
