Cars from the late 70s, in particular, saw major downsizing due to the shift in customer taste and the oil crisis, but a few dinosaurs chugged along regardless of the change. The Ford LTD II was one of those vehicles, and in retrospect, the LTD is one of Ford's largest vehicles ever made. The car we have today was based on the Ford LTD II and is a true automotive legend; present today is a 1979 Ford Ranchero GT with a reported 106,774 miles on the clock.
The seventh generation of the Ford Ranchero was the last hurrah to an automotive legend. To commemorate the occasion, the last generation was to be based on the mighty Ford LTD II. This 1979 Ford Ranchero GT sports a funky orange exterior with a custom "GT" livery. The exterior is in great shape, with the current owner reporting that the bed liner has been sprayed. The car doesn't follow the typical custom route and features factory styling, and to pay ode to that, this uber cool Ranchero GT sits on a set of factory Ford hubcaps which are reportedly wrapped with fresh tires. Whether you choose to cruise on by or haul stuff around, the cream/tan interior on this 1979 Ford Ranchero GT ensures a smooth ride feel and comfort only found in cars from the 70s. This car has seen some miles and doesn't pretend to fit in. While it might not be factory fresh, the interior present in this car is complete and sports a level of patina that makes you appreciate its journey. Features like the factory steering wheel and the Ranchero GT insignia present on the dashboard showcases originality, and the reported functioning air conditioning just makes life behind the wheel all that better.
With great size comes greater power and ensuring this 1979 Ford Ranchero GT powers along without a hiccup is a 351ci (5.8L) V8 powertrain. The 351 is one of three motors offered with Ranchero and if you ever feel like you need more power, you are greeted by an aftermarket community geared to make your Ranchero go faster. The V8 motor sees an aftermarket exhaust to breathe more freely and power is sent to the car's rear wheels through an automatic transmission.
