    If it was a Hemi Cuda, maybe. In this case, maybe $2.5K?

    This car does come with a delux Marti report showing that it is a one of one built car. This is the only Ranchero of this year with these options in the world. There are literally no other cars exactly like it!

    That'd be worth something, if it were a Camaro, Mustang, Corvette, Challenger, Charger, even a Torino, but almost worthless for Ranchero's, Pinto's, Mavericks, et al.

    Fantasy world. I would bet big money that if you ordered two identicaly equipped Fords of any body style, you could take them apart and find quite a few differences. It could boil down to simply different fasteners or irregularitys in bolt hole positions or different suppliers of various parts. Would such differences not make each vehicle a "One Of One" ? That term has ZERO meaning if you apply AACA judging rules.

    Nice but not 35K nice. 10K nice "maybe" I Love my 74 ranchero but I know what it's worth and that car could still use some serous detailing (interior and engine bay) to even consider asking anywhere near that price.

    Nick, hopefully you see this for what it is... no one is trying to demean or denigrate you or the vehicle. In fact, it's beautiful. But $35k for a 74 is just over the moon, out the door, not even if I won the lottery kind of stuff.

    I found it interesting that they added the words "hot bitches" to the search tags.

    Yeah, no, not a $25K car. First, to get good money, spend some damned money to at least clean/detail it. Second, spend some money for replacement items worn out by use and time...like a repro floormat set. Then, spend some money to arrest some of the rust (such as the rivulet of it down the left wheel well in the bed--apparently the hard cover didn't do its job well), then maybe, on the very outside...you've approached $10K. But definitely not 25K.
