The Ford Ranchero was a cult pick-up utility truck that appealed thanks to its coke-bottle-like lines. Originally based on a wagon design, the Ranchero is, in many ways, not visually dissimilar to Australian UTEs. It was also u stiff competition from Chevrolet’s El Camino. Our subject car is a fifth-generation Ford Ranchero, made in 1971. Heavily influenced by the pinched-hips coke-bottle styling of the era, the Ranchero went head to head with the Chevrolet El Camino. This car is one of the more sought-after varieties: an original GT.
The exterior of this 1971 Ford Ranchero is finished in silver, with what looks to be good condition bodywork. Complementing the exterior paintwork are black racing stripes on the hood, which incorporate the subtle hood scoop. The rear tub appears to have been treated to bed liner, preserving the functionality of this couple-pick-up. Inside, the 1971 Ranchero has newer upholstery, as well as a three-spoke steering wheel wrapped in leather. Overall, the interior and exterior appear to look in remarkable shape.
Under the hood of this Ranchero is the 351cc V8—an engine that was initially offered for the Ford Ranchero. This is coupled to Ford’s C6 “Cruise-O-Matic” automatic transmission, sending a decent chunk of speed for the cruising, work-horse hybrid.
