This stunning survivor carries known 3 owner history, 49K actual miles and rare factory "Special Performance Vehicle" with "Rio Grande" option package". It was originally ordered by Bob Rice Ford in Boise, Idaho on June 6th 1969, built on July 9th and sold new retail August 3rd 1969 to a gentleman in the North Boise area who protected/enjoyed it with low miles until his passing...

In the spring of 1993, my Father in-law (Art) purchased it from his widow with only 24K actual miles. At the time of purchase, it was neatly tucked away, in it's own single car garage, where it had resided since new, neatly covered with white bed sheets and had been quietly resting for several years. The original tires were low on air and the fuel had aged far too long. Cash exchanged hands, it was towed home, fuel system cleaned, checked over and was happily back on the road for limited duty...
Over the coming years, it remained coveted/protected in Meridian, Idaho with limited low mile use by other family members (including myself). Another one of those lucky drivers was his brother Robert (my wife's uncle) from Burbank, California who had the opportunity to enjoy it every year when he would visit on vacation and mentioned if it was ever up for sale, he would be proud to own it. In early 2005, his wish would come true and it was on it's way to enjoy in Southern California...

Fast forward, garage kept, limited miles and 10+ years later, I received a call from Robert stating that "it was time to let the Ranchero go". Once again, I would have the opportunity to re-visit this gem for sale, one more time. Robert and I decided that it was best to transport it to my home office for a good once over, extensive documentation and representation through Spuds Garage...
