1965 Ford Ranchero DELUXE
***1965 FORD RANCHERO 289 AUTO TURQUOISE/PALOMINO CALIF VEHICLE 85K MILES***
This is a 1965 Ford Falcon Ranchero that the owner asked me to list. This vehicle was sold originally in California just as the former owner stated. It has been repainted the original medium turquoise plus it has a bed cap that is painted body color. The interior is the original palomino. It has a bench seat, still has the spare and tire changing tools behind the seat and even the original AM radio works. The car is powered by a 289 V-8 that we think is the original engine. A previous owner upgraded the carburetor and distributor. The vehicle has a straight body that is solid. Trim is very presentable. The Ranchero has dog dish hub caps on blackwall radial tires. This truck runs and drives fine - the owner has taken it on a couple of trips out of state with no problem. Title says the Ranchero has actual miles and it may; it is in that nice of condition and much of the interior is original. Email any question and you may ask for the owner's number to set up a time to see the Ranchero.
The bed cover is fiberglass painted body color. A company in California made the cover but is now out of business.
