Although not as popular today, the 'coupe utility’ segment came to life all the way back in 1934, when Lew Bandt from Ford Australia envisioned a classy and stylish car that could be driven to church and deliver goods to the market soon after. However, the idea never stuck, as heavy-duty pickup trucks quickly took over. In 1960, the second-gen Falcon Ranchero such as the one featured here was introduced. It was smaller than the previous generation and based on the compact Falcon. The sublime example in topic today has been restored and is currently stationed in Washington with just 1,500 miles since its rebuild.
Round headlights, sleek body style, and an excess of chrome. There's no doubt that the Ranchero was indeed a 1960s vehicle, but what made this vehicle a success was its ability to be driven stylishly to your weekend carnival, and then load 800 pounds of cargo for delivery the very next day. This specific 1965 Ford Falcon Ranchero is in a beautiful Deep Canyon Red exterior paint, has upgraded headlights, LED taillights, a heavy-duty trailer hitch, and sports a beautiful black tonneau cover shielding its bed. Upon entering the cabin, this 1965 Ford Falcon Ranchero greets you to a beautifully reconditioned bench-style seat in black, a beautiful three-spoke steering wheel with a wooden frame and new horn, along with a new radio system and steering wheel.
Under the hood of this 1965 Ford Falcon Ranchero, known popularly as the 'ute', is a rebuilt 347ci small-block V8 engine that is reported to produce around 400hp. It's also said that the vehicle has brand new wires, hoses, and lines, an all-new suspension with Mustang parts, front disc brakes, replaced rear leaf springs, and US Mag wheels. There's also an extra fuel tank along with the reconditioned one, which is a rare feature, an aluminum radiator with an electric fan, a new steering box, and a C-6 transmission with a 2000 stall converter. An additional extra included is a bumper-jack that has been cleaned, painted, and stored in a leather bag.
