1977 Ford RancheroNO RESERVE AUCTION
Up for bids is a 1977 Lincoln Mark V Coloma. Basically a Lincoln Ranchero.This is not a back yard hack job.this was done by a professional coach builder.Ford Motor Company commissioned a professional coach builder in California to build theseto test the market for a lincoln Ranchero type vehicle. They were then sold through the lincoln dealers at a cost of $30,000 that was a lot of money in 1977. They only built 12 of these. I don'tknow if any others survived.The company that built them was called Caribou Motor CompanyThey are now out of business.This is a very rare car i would like to see some one restore it.Now for the condition of the car. I have only test driven it about 100 miles. I will give my best and honest answer of the condition. It looks to be original and complete.The body is mostly solid. The only rust i can see is the bottom of the drivers door.The very bottom is rusted out due to poor water drainage. it will need repair or replacement.This was a common problem on ford doors of the 1970s.The interior is fair but shows wear. The dash has one large crack. The power seats do not work. I do not know if its in the switch or the seat motor. Every thing else seems to work as it should even the AC. all the glass is good. It has a 460 motor and C6 transmission. the motor runs good but it smokes a little. The transmission works good. It has power brakes and steering that works good. the steering is vague as most 1970s cars were but i think the front end and steering might need rebuilding and maybe the steering box. The paint is dark jade but i think the original color was a lighter green called light jade diamond fire. The paint is fair but not show quality.The tires are new.Overall this car is in good to fair condition it just needs a lot of tlc.This is a very rare car and i would like to see someone restore it.I will try and answer any questions as best i can.I have a clear title in my name. Car will not be released until all funds clear my bank no exceptions.Please do not bid if you do not intend to buy.I will require a $500.00 non refundable deposit through paypal within 24 hours of auctions end the rest to be paid within 7 days no exceptions. The vehicle is sold as is where is with no warranty.
