Rough Ranchero

1962 Ford Ranchero

..though we’d need good undercarriage photos to be sure, that poorly-disguised aluminum rust covering on the rear quarter panel is concerning. Perhaps that’s all the rot there is. If so, then this will make a reasonably easy project.

The interior looks remarkably nice, though. We think it’s comical for the seller to suggest this be used as a work truck for a gardener or handyman, though – who would use a fifty-year-old classic ute with four wheel drums as a daily work vehicle?

Please, whatever is done to it..don’t ditch the column-shifted three-speed. There will be a day soon when the “kids” have never seen a three-on-the-tree, and this will blow their minds.

It’s on eBay in New York for $6k or offer.1962 Ford Ranchero interior 1962 Ford Ranchero engine
