1979 Ford Ranchero GT

1979 Ford Ranchero GT

The Ford Ranchero is a coupe utility that was produced by Ford between 1957 and 1979. Unlike a standard pickup truck, the Ranchero was adapted from a two door station wagon platform that integrated the cab and cargo bed into the body. With Torino production ending after 1976, the 1977 Ranchero was restyled in line with the Ford LTD II mid sized car line using the same platform as the Torino. The same three models available since 1968 were still offered and the Ranchero could be ordered in quite luxurious form. Production ceased in 1979 with, among the traditional choices, a commemorative \"1979.5\" model being available.

For consignment and straight out of 1979, bathed in red, a final year of production 1979 Ranchero GT. Look out on the road....it's a LTD II.....No....It's a truck.....No.....it's a Ranchero GT. Sporting decent paint, a stylish interior and a bed to haul all of your cargo. With a V8 engine and automatic transmission you'll be hauling in style.

Exterior
Retaining the 79 LTD II exterior nose, hood and cabin, although sans the rear seat, this car has fairly straight steel panels and a nice looking bed showing signs of use. This is all bathed in red, which is a respray, showing a few faults, inclusions, and rust bubbling but otherwise very nice. The grill retains its original beauty with the outboard stacked headlights and corner mounted cathedral style turn signals. A chrome strip lines from the rear of the roof and around the bed. A tailgate gives you access and has FORD badging spelled out in individual chrome letters. At the rear of the quarter panels are the stacked inset signal/brake/reverse lights. Magnum 500 wheels are now on all 4 corners and are wrapped in 225/70R14 Cooper Cobra radial tires.

Interior
Snazzy gray vinyl door panels adorn the large well balanced door. A faux wooden trim spear separated the top from the bottom of the panel and just below this is an armrest and integral door release. A chrome window cranks, and mirror joystick also reside within this panel. A sprawling gray power vinyl split bench seat floats in a sea of darker gray carpeting, and both are looking fab. The original black plastic steering wheel fronts the dash panel, which is full of instrumentation, part of the GT package including gauges for volts, amps, a clock and a factory tachometer. A machine turned finish surrounds these gauges and down below is an AM/FM/Cassette player. A small storage compartment is behind the seats and a saggy but tear free headliner is above.

Drivetrain
A 302ci V8 2bbl occupies space in the mammoth engine bay. Ford blue valve covers top things off along with a chrome air cleaner. The hoses in this bay all are soft and supple. A C4 3-speed automatic transmission is on the back and at the tail end is a Ford 9\" rear axle.

Undercarriage
Surface rust is on the frame and suspension components as would be expected with a car this vintage. Minor invasive rust is forming on the rear bumper brackets and should be addressed at some point. The floor pans are rust free and still have their factory undercoating. Independent coil spring suspension is on the front and for the rear we see a 4 link with coil springs. Dual exhaust snakes its way rearward through a pair of turbo style mufflers. Power brakes are noted with discs in the front and drums on the back.

Drivability
This Ranchero is a quick starter, idles smoothly, runs great, drives nicely, and cruises comfortably at highway speed. Brakes were very good, and handling was nice and tight.

A well done version of the Ranchero, with a few faults here and there, but a rarely seen vehicle. I would even go as far to say that in all our inventory, this is one of two Rancheros we have and the only one from the final model year. Well cared for and ready to drive.
