This 1972 Ford Ranchero has a dark green metallic exterior finish that is complemented by the black GT interior. The vehicle has been in Southern California, and still wears the California Blue Plates. The Ranchero runs and drives well, and the factory Air Conditioning blows cold. The front suspension is in excellent condition, as are the brakes and exhaust system. It sports the original-style Magnum GT Rally wheels with steel-belted radial tires. 351 Cleveland 2V engine, aluminum intake and 4V added. C4 automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes and front disc brakes, chrome and complete stainless trim, tinted glass and dual GT sport exterior rear-view mirrors. It features several desirable factory options including a Q-code 351C Cobra Jet V8, power front disc brakes and handling suspension. Rancheros of this vintage were based on the intermediate-sized Ford Torino, but full-sized and compact platforms also were used during the model’s two-decade production run.
The Ford Ranchero is a coupe utility that was produced by Ford between 1957 and 1979. Unlike a pickup truck, the Ranchero was adapted from a two-door station wagon platform that integrated the cab and cargo bed into the body. A total of 508,355 units were produced during the model's production run. Over its lifespan it was variously derived from full-sized, compact, and intermediate automobiles sold by Ford for the North American market. The original Ranchero sold well enough to spawn a competitor from General Motors in 1959, the Chevrolet El Camino.
