    Very Nice!

    Very Nice ! This is the kind of example I was looking for..

    I have been given (if I want it, which I do) a '75 Ranchero 500, it's sitting the car graveyard at my wife's parents place.

    It appears to be totally original, down to the wheels and Ford hubcaps still on it. Body looks straight, with no rust except for some surface rust. Interior looks to be in average condition for its age. Hopefully there is no severe hidden rust in it, here in the interior of Alaska everything is frozen solid for 6 months, and for the other 6 its a very dry climate with occasional rain.

    Will be investigating it further once the snow melts to see if it is a worth while project to get it back on the road. I'm originally from New Zealand, and the Utility or "Ute" as we call them are very much a part of car culture there and more so in Australia where Ford and Holden (GM) still design and locally manufacture Cars, Wagons and Utes. So I would love to have something like this to drive about! I particularly like the 74-76 style :)
