We love the 1957 Ford Ranchero because it's the car that launched the name, and it did it with style. So to find a V8 example that continues to look so vibrant is always an alluring idea.
This is the first model year for the Ranchero's special blend of car and pickup. This history becomes ultra-desirable when you realize there are also unique features exclusive to the inaugural version. The single headlight front end has an almost frenched look that came directly from Ford. Plus, .....
the inward-sloping grille and large/wide chrome bumper all give this one a distinctive front. And since it's putting such a special face forward, the chrome is really shining. Speaking of shine, the white and turquoise green have the look of a quality respray later in life. The two-tone treatment looks particularly nice on the '57s, because the full-length trim is an artful wave of silver and gold that provides a well-defined separation line that gives this a premium appearance. This one is truly a detail oriented style. You see it in factory pieces like the Thunderbird-inspired taillights. And there's also the right upgrades, like the white soft tonneau cover, protected bed, and bright smoothie wheels.
The black interior has a clean and quite tasteful look. In fact, the split bench has a hint of tuck and roll pattern. And all the darkness of the upholstery really makes the bright dash pop. There are nice classic elements, like the artful steering wheel and bright classic gauge panel. But as you gaze across this, you'll also see well-integrated upgrades. For example, the retro-style radio is a modern AM/FM digital tuner for upgraded driving music. The auxiliary gauge trio has a polished housing to fit in with the rest of the brightwork, and it allows you to keep a better eye of what's going on in the engine bay.
Tilt the hood forward to get a good view of the upgrade 289 cubic-inch V8. It's dressed for added flair with polish on the air topper, master cylinder, and Ford Motorsports valve covers. And you can see that they took care of the fundamentals, right down to the good-looking belts and newer wires. This Ranchero was made to be a cruiser. That's why your V8 power is paired with nice features like a c4 three speed automatic transmission and power brakes with front discs.
This is a distinctive classic that's been done correct to make sure you're memorable where you go. So don't miss this first-ever Ranchero. Call today!!
