This is a 50 year old light duty truck, it is driven and functions well as intended. Many new parts have been added to improve Safety and comfort, However any warranties that existed have either expired , or more than likely been voided. A Mercury based Ranchero was made in Canada from 1957 to 1959, but was discontinued when the switch was made to the Falcon platform. This vehicle never left the factory in this configuration, and it is quite probable that is has not stopped evolving . Licenced as a 1965 Ford Ranchero deluxe, I bolted on the front sheet metal from a 1964 Comet Caliente Convertable that couldn't be rescued . No welding was involved and it is completely reversable, however if that is Your intention You might be better off looking for another starting point. Engine is a 5.0 roller with a carb rather than injection 302.Ceramic coated HiPro exhaust manifolds into flowmasters with crossover, Pre computer Automatic Overdrive with shift kit, cruise control, 8" limited slip rear currently 3.40. I get 25 MPG on the highway, Your mileage may vary. 16 gal tank gives a 400 mile range between fill ups. Fuel fill has been reversed to fill from inside the bed (a few drops on the bed liner is much easier to take) The stock cap is tethered and only used to complete the chrome strip down the side. Dual reservoir master cylinder and front disc brakes. We just drove it to the Motor Mania in Mesquite Nevada, a 2000 mile round trip, with only a burned brake light filament as a problem. While there is room left for improvement, this is a get in and go, award winner. Judges choice best non Ford, Skyline Ford Show. Best Orphan, Brooks Extreme Showdown. Farthest Driven, Falcon Club of America western regionals. Best Mercury, Woodburn Drags Ford Frenzy, TWO years in a row. Woodgrain is 3M vinyl car wrap as is used in advertising, with a paint stripe on the edge. Battery has been moved behind cab under bed panel. . Welded sub frame connectors. Mustang instrument pod for factory gauges. I have stock 289 air cleaner and valve covers for a more factory look under the hood. If You have made it this far , You'll want to get Your bid in before someone snags it away from You, or You know someone who is interested,alert a friend looking for something unique and rare. I can't talk trades as I have a '63 Futura hard top that needs to be finished by Spring. I will get to questions at least once a day but please don't expect an immediate response. Show me a recent close comparable that sold for less ,and I'll match that price, if I can't show one that sold for more.
