Description for Ford Ranchero 1965

We pulled this Ranchero from a Kansas field in 2014 in the hopes that it would soon be restored but ADD and a surprise baby have changed the plans. Previous to her last home, we were told that she came from California and in fact, was even stolen for a quick heist back in the 1970s only to be recovered the next day. The little amount rust on the car (besides the floor pans) would seem appropriate for a warm climate car.
CLEAR TITLE - in possession
At one point the car was 100% driveable. It would start, run, shift, drive and brake just fine. In fact, we even had to drive it 10 miles to have it inspected to get a title. Towards the end of the restoration process, the car would no longer run on it's own. It will fire when you pour gasoline into the intake of the carburetor but it won't stay running as it's not getting fuel. We believe the carburetor needs rebuilt or tuned up. We also have a video of it starting with this process that we can send upon request.
The mileage shows 22,099 but we don't know how many times it has rolled over.

Modifications / Improvements by us:
* Cut out and replaced quarter panels* Cut out rust and welded in sheet metal to fix floor pans* New fuel pump* New tires* New water pump* Sanded exterior and began priming and body fill
New Accessories Included:
* 3-Point seatbelts* Spark plug wires* Interior door handles & window cranks* Exterior door handles* Dash trim pieces* Popup lock buttons* Armrests* Side mirrors* Hood ornament
We believe the car is very original. Drum brakes, no modern electronic parts, steel wheels. Nothing high performance, just good old-fashioned American classic.
Car is located in Shawnee, KS. (KC Metro) We will not ship the car so you must come here to pick it up. Car has been garaged the entire time we've had it. It is a project car so please know there is quite a bit of work that will need to be done. If you have any specific questions or need any additional photos please feel free to ask. She will be a magnificent treasure to anyone who has the drive and perseverance to see this through to the end!!
