-MARTY REPORT shows LESS THAN 500 OF THIS CAR WERE EVER MADE. (Not to mention this was a 1 year only car to begin with!)

-Extremely rare factory 429 Ford Ranchero.

-The vehicle has been inspected & every deficiency found was renewed or replaced with a factory style or OEM part to new drivers condition.

-This car is completely original, uncut & still retains the factory seat in great condition. New carpet was installed when all the sound/heat insulation was installed.

-Completely gone through front to back, top to bottom & replaced anything even slightly deficient with the highest quality parts to ensure everything works flawlessly. Any item that was deficient was flat out replaced. 

-This is probably the best original metal I have ever seen on these cars as well. 

-I have miles of photos top to bottom, front to back so this is a fine specimen to place on the concourse pathway especially with the Marty report showing it as under 500 ever produced. EVER..!

-Its very mechanically sound so a person could own & drive as is.., time traveling with a huge smile for a lifetime of working & playing.

-This car comes with all the records in the huge 3ring binder shown. It's full of every receipt for anything described here in this ad as well as the Marty report & many other historical documents originally for the car.

-Engine: Stock & original 429 engine in perfect working order. This engine has been maintained meticulously its entire life & continues to be up to this very day.  As you can see from pics I have hunted down, sourced & replaced every piece on this car. All the covers, vents, hoses & things that just naturally rot away after years, I replaced with Factory new. This is reflected throughout the entire car as well as here in the engine compartment. No tricks to start, No questions at all… this car is rock solid & runs strong.

-This car is literally a functional time machine that you can confidently drive & have fun with, no worries, right now! 

-A person could also take this very rare car & take the last few steps to restore to concourse condition & have a 6 figure car on their hands. A 72 Ranchero just sold at Mecums for $102,000 & it wasn't even concourse or original...

-Don't snooze on this car... $22,500 is cheap & doesn't begin to cover the value of this car. 

Good luck!
