    I Found This A Few Months Ago And Recently Decided To Make It A Daily Driver, It Doesn't Look So Good Close Up,but, I Like It. I Would Rather Have A Candy Apple Red 57 Like My Dad Had When I Was Too Young To Drive.i Have Been Driving This Every Day And Now Remember What It Is To Drive A Real American Made Vehicle.

    Not bad for being found in a shed! Very nice and rare ride. I would love to use my ranchero as a daily driver, But seating and gas prices dictate a different driver. Enjoy your new ride! :)

    I'm jealous! I haven't seen an original Squire that clean since they were new, when I worked at a Helmold Ford in Cary, NC. Of the 758 made, I'll bet there'd be some low numbers on a Marti report for that one! What's under the hood?
    I'd be getting a shed (or garage) to park it in when I wasn't driving it. That one's a keeper, congratulations.:cool: JD

    Did it have a vinyl roof at one time? And does it have dark red leather seats and dash? Some of you folks know where I'm going with this...:rolleyes: JD

    That side view makes it look like it had a vinyl roof at one time!!!
    Everyone is right, what clean Squire!!!
    especially with those turbine Thunderbird/Lincoln style wheels!!! Clas-s-s-s-s-s-s-y!!!!

    Looks to me like the vinyl roof is still there and holding up pretty well... a little "pink" from fading perhaps but I don't see any bubbles...

    Looks like everything is there except for the corner pieces for the bed trim. Looks like my quest for trim pieces just got a little longer.

    Just a quick question..... was the Ranchero offered in Candy Apple? That may explain why my dad had someone at one time attempt to paint it Candy Apple Red.

    Very nice Ranchero by the way. I love it!

    Thanks, You All Have Helped Me More Than You Know.TRIKAR SUGGESTED I GET A MARTI AND I DID. IT IS ALL STOCK EXEPT THE WRONG COLOR RED ,8-TRACK WAS PROBABLY DEALER INSTALLED AND IT CAME WITH WIRE HUB CAPS .IT HAS NICE DK RED VYNIL INTERIOR BUT THE SSTEERING WHEEL IS BLACK.THE AC, SPEEDO,AND GAS GUAGE DON'T WORK YET.IT HAS A 351 AND FMX TRANS, AND I NEED TO PUT A VYNIL TOP ON IT . I BOUGHT IT FROM A WIDOW AND THE BED WAS FULL OF PARTS, I FOUND THE CORNER PIECES FOR THE BED AND MOST ANYTHING ELSE I'VE NEEDED SO FAR IN THERE. I ALSO HAVE A 74 GT MY UNCLE GAVE ME THAT IS COMPLETE EXEPT THE FLOORS ARE GONE FRONT AND BACK. IT'S GREEN INSIDE AND OUT AND HAS A 302 THAT HASN'T RUN FOR 15+ YEARS.I KNOW I CAN USE SOME OF THE REAR TRIM BUT THATS ABOUT IT.
