Description for Ford Ranchero 1961

This incredibly restored 1961 Ford Falcon Ranchero Deluxe has been featured in numerous hard back car books and magazines. All of the books/mags will come with the car. It was painstakingly restored in the early 1980's, but you'd hardly believe that if you saw it with your own eyes. It was restored completely by a fastidious and super hard core early Ford fanatic who spared no expense and time to create what may be the world's finest restored, low mileage, stock 1961 Ford Falcon Ranchero Deluxe on the planet.
This Ranchero was only lightly used since it's restoration was complete, and over 10 years ago, the man who performed the restoration passed. His wife could not part with this Ranchero, nor his perfectly restored 1961 Ford Econoline truck and 1961 Ford Sedan Delivery. They stayed with the widow for many years, in her garage, being carefully started and driven down the road a mile or so every few months (by a hired car caretaker) so the cars all kept the original, low miles. Only the Ford Ranchero is now available for sale (so please do not inquire about the Econoline truck or Sedan Delivery, as they are not mine).

Just 55,610 miles have been put on this car, and by the way it drives, and the crisp steering, rattle-free ride, you know this to be the correct and original mileage. Much documentation comes with this vehicle, as with all of the before/after photos of the restoration, parts books, owners manual, receipts, diary work log, that will go to the lucky new 'caretaker' of this fine Ford. In fact, the box that contains all of the documentation and books, photos, etc is quite large and quite heavy!
Feasting your eyes on this beauty gives one the impression of what a brand-new Ford Ranchero looked like in the dealers showroom way back in 1961. Every aspect of this car is correct to the original specs. It is a 100% stock and correct restoration in every way. This is WHY this car is in hardbound, coffee table Ford and truck literature, as it is one of the finest examples that correctly details a 1961 Ford Ranchero.
It drives as almost a new car would. Hums along the road happily, and shifts easily through all the gears. Stops on a dime. The seats are soft and comfy. The windows open and close like butter. I could go on and on! Everything on this truck works like a Swiss watch and it's now ready for it next owner.
Will that lucky buyer be you?
