Description for Ford Ranchero 1978

Up for NO RESERVE auction, this is a Barn fresh Fantastic driving project for sale, Motor Runs Fantastic and Clean. 1978 Ford Ranchero 500, I work at a Ford Dealership myself and drive it to work daily as my main vehicle. Quite nice paint, Starsky & Hutch style Colors, with what I believe is either a 302 or 351 (hard to tell without lift and facilities) and I assume aC4 Automatic Transmission. This is vehicle hassome quirks and rat rod qualities, and will need some minor body and frame work in the long run,however it is a great running and daily driven, fully functioning vehicle. Registered, Insured and Inspected.CleanandClear New York Title in my name.A Fantasticanddrivableproject.Previous Ownership wise...To the best of my knowledge, I am the 3rdowner of this vehicle. The previous owner told me that he had found it in a barn in Eastern Long Island from the gentleman that bought it new. Here is some extensive info on the car for your consideration:

-Windshield Wipers


-New Battery


-CB Radio and New CB Antenna


-Moonroof(moonroofseal leaks a bit during heavy rain.)


-Driver side seat has some tape patches vinyl tore a little, needs to beredone, a license plate seems to be covering some part of body work area?


-Nice body and paint but there are, Some Bondo, brush and touch up marks are visible.


-Transmission seems to have a drip hear and there from either the pan or main, nothing terrible.


-Small Rust Bubbles on passenger side hood


-Transmission shifts and rides great but sometimes it will wind down and back up when hotrunning temperature. It does not slip or anything, just a strange vacuum related quirk possibly or filter change needed in the future? Cruises and goes up and down gears, cruises on highway fantastic though.



-Headliner has minor tears but is intact


-The frame arches on both sides need to be welded, for they have some rotholes theyare still intact and held by the other side.


-At some point one of the previous owners had cut the bumper down the middle to achieve some sort of custom design, I have a full bumper that might fit it which I will absolutely include

If so desired.
