1961 Ford Ranchero Deluxe

There's more than first meets the eye with this 1961 Ford Ranchero Deluxe mild custom. What you are looking at is the result of countless hours of hand crafted original ideas brought together in a way to make it look as though nothing has been changed.

The origination of the custom (or Kustom) started with guys adding parts from higher end cars to make their lower model cars look more extravagant. The tradition continues with this well built and thought out mild custom built by it's owner at home.

We'll start at the front and work our way back on the highlights that might go unnoticed.

•Leading edge of hood and fenders extended and peaked
•1968 Camaro header panel pie cut and fitted for lower valence

•“nosed” hood removing FORD letters
•New aluminum radiator
•Freshly rebuilt 200 cubic inch straight six, new carb, fuel pump, etc
•Stock split exhaust manifold, 2-4, with true dual 2” exhaust running full length to “fish tail” exhaust tips
•Rebuilt C4 “green dot” automatic

The interior still needs the carpet and headliner. The windshield and back glass weatherstrip are included but it will need all other weatherstrip. The paint could use a cut and buff to remove imperfections in the clear. Although th transmission was rebuilt and functions fine, the torque convertor seal was damaged during install and leaks a little sometimes.
