Up for NO RESERVE auction with Buy it Now option, this is a Barn fresh Fantastic driving project for sale, Motor Runs Fantastic and Clean. 1978 Ford Ranchero 500, I work at a Ford Dealership myself and drive it to work daily as my main vehicle. Quite nice paint, Starsky & Hutch style Colors, 351 Windsor (possibly Windsor-M) with what I believe is theC4 Automatic Transmission. This is vehicle hassome quirks and rat rod qualities, and will need some minor body and frame work in the long run,however it is a great running and daily driven, fully functioning vehicle. Registered, Insured and Inspected.CleanandClear New York Title in my name.A Fantasticanddrivableproject.Previous Ownership wise...To the best of my knowledge, I am the 3rdowner of this vehicle. The previous owner told me that he had found it in a barn in Eastern Long Island from the gentleman that bought it new. Here is some extensive info on the car for your consideration:
-New Brakes, Master Cylinder lines and Battery
-CB Radio and New CB Antenna
-Moonroof(moonroofseal leaks a bit during heavy rain.)
-Driver side seat has some tape patches vinyl tore a little, needs to beredon.
-Transmission shifts and rides great but sometimes it will wind down and back up when hotrunning temperature. It does not slip or anything, just a strange vacuum related quirk possibly or filter change needed in the future? Cruises and goes up and down gears, cruises on highway fantastic though.
-Headliner has minor tears but is intact
-The frame arches on both sides need to be welded, for they have some rotholes theyare still intact and held by the other side.
-At some point one of the previous owners had cut the bumper down the middle to achieve some sort of custom design, I have a full bumper that might fit it which I will absolutely include
If so desired.
-Solid Bed, withBedliner
-Front tired are newer, backs are a little older minor dry rot (I have the other hubcap)
