Present today is a custom build on a 50s beauty that's done right and comes in the shape of this 1957 Ford Ranchero. Read on to find out what you'll be availing yourself to, should you decide to purchase this beauty.
When it comes to unique classic motors, this 1957 Ford Ranchero sure fits the bill and then some. The red exterior on this classic American machine helps complement its unique design and highlights all its long swooping body lines exceptionally well. The current owner reports a frame-on restoration and features a clean exterior that sports all its 50s chrome exterior. Adding a performance feel and matching this car's personality is a set of Aluminium mag wheels that are wrapped with BF Goodrich Radial T/A tires. The two-tone tan interior of this 1957 Ford Ranchero mixes up that old-school charm with a host of new-age tech. Step in, and at first glance, the bench seats are refreshed and ensure comfort like no other when cruising. While the exterior sports all its chrome fittings, the interior boasts a whole lot of nickel components that shine out amongst the leather trim. A closer look and some of the factory's interior trim is retained, a quick look at the dash and the original 50s cluster and clock is present, and custom upgrades include a wood grain 3-spoke steering wheel for a better drive feel and an aftermarket head unit that is mounted in this vehicle factory location.
While this 1957 Ford Ranchero is now 66 years old, its drive feel says different. Pop open the hood of this American classic and what you will find is a 351 Cleveland V8 motor that livens up this vehicle's drive feel and sees a host of accompaniments that are geared to boost drive feel and comfort, upgrades including a custom wiring harness to rid of electrical gremlins, Camaro front end, and power steering for better handling, dual exhaust to hear that V8 motor roar with all its might, and lastly power brakes with disc brakes at the front to boost stopping power. All this refreshed performance is sent to the car's rear wheels through an automatic transmission.
