Are you trying to make a decision as to whether you want a classic car or pickup? Or, maybe trying to decide if you want a performance collector car, or something that drives nice and easy? Well, this '69 Ranchero tick's all of those boxes. Very nicely restored with the true performance Hot-Rodder in mind, but also not temperamental and cumbersome like some cars that may turn a quick quarter mile time, but really aren't too much fun to drive or cruise around in. On the other hand, let's face it, we all like high performance, and finding a car/truck that gives us the best of both worlds is sometimes not so easy to find.
Case in point: This Ranchero has the reliability of a fuel injected performance engine, enhanced by a Supercharger and a nice sounding/performing cam, but also has the comforts we all seem to have to have today, such as Power steering, power brakes, A/C, and even overdrive!
Thoughtfully restored, the paint, the interior, the engine compartment, the bed, and the undercarriage are all very clean.
This Ranchero is one you can drive anytime, anywhere. Take it to a car show, a cruise-in, drive it on special occasions, drive it daily, and even use it to pick up those purchases from the big-box stores. You might even have enough room in the bed to haul all of your Costco purchases home as I know how it is every time you go in there!
This is a very fun Ranchero to drive, and the miles since build is what you see on the odometer. The period Torq-Thrust wheels look right at home wrapped in T/A radials. You'll be impressed by the way this Ranchero rides too, no squeaks or rattles, and a smooth ride.
If there's any confusion as to what kind of collector car to buy, buy one that does everything!
