1978 Ford Ranchero GTThis 1978 Ford Ranchero GT represents the final generation of the legend, and with its highly stock style, V8 power, and A/C interior, this one really does its history proud. The affordable price is just the cherry on top.
Not only is this the final generation for the Ranchero, but it's arguably the best one, too. Ford's LTD wanted to be both premium and sporty, and that design translates well into this pickup/coupe. Its Lincoln-inspired marker lights, full black strobe stripe package, and flared fenders make this look like a true GT machine. Big chrome bumpers and Mag-style wheels complete this very vintage and sporty look. The total package is much more in the survivor realm, which is the kind of thing that gets a lot of us excited today. And for a lot others out there, this Ranchero GT represents a clean and complete classic with a price that leaves plenty of room in your budget for personalization.
The silver of the exterior goes well with the silver/gray interior. It has nice comfort features, like a 50/50 front split bench with individual armrest for bucket-like comfort. There's also cup holders, and the factory air conditioning is even blowing nice and cold. There's a great vintage feeling with the classic dual-spoke steering wheel and premium LTD details. But as a true GT, Ford gave you the full gauge package, including tach, and it's surrounded by a sporty machine-turned aluminum panel.
Under the hood is Ford's mighty 351 cubic-inch V8. It has a maintained look with some newer pieces, like the wires and hoses. It fires up nicely as the V8 inhales deeply from a four-barrel carburetor. So it has the right power and torque to be a fine cruiser. That attitude is backed up further by great driving features, like power steering, power brakes w/discs up front, and a three-speed automatic transmission.
No matter if you love a survivor-style classic or just a value-priced project, this Ranchero is true GT with a ton of appeal. Call today!!!
