I am the third owner of this 1973 Ford Ranchero 500. I hate to see it go, but I've got to move across the country, and I can't take her with me.
The Good:
It's got a 351 cleveland motor in it, which runs well. (was rebuilt in '94 about 40,000 miles put on the odometer since then). Automatic transmission. It's currently my daily driver. Its previous life was as a weekend motorcycle carrier and cruiser.
I recently replaced the headers, and had a major tune up including plugs, wires, fluids, carb work etc. I've replaced some steering components, tightened up the steering, and replaced rubber fuel lines with hard lines.
Also, lots of custom metal work. In the pictures, you can see the Aluminum diamond plate outfitted in the truck bed, and on the lower body panels.
In addition, this car is well-documented. I've got receipts and work descriptions going back years.
The Bad:
The car does have rust, and will need sheet metal work on the floors. It will also need mufflers (though it does sound mean, which i like).
There is also some damage to the headlight housing and front bumper from an accident sustained before I bought it. I do have replacement headlight housings, bulbs, and bezels, and I also have the missing bumper guard.
The air conditioner is currently not working, and the car speakers will need attention.
All in all, it's been a reliable driver with some character, and it has not let me down. I hope it will be a good project for the right person.
This car must be sold and picked up before August 13th, as I am moving across the country after then.
