Description

Lot #331 - Phenomenal restoration of a correct car. Original 292ci V8 car with automatic transmission. Upgraded with a Ford 302 V8 engine with dress-up kit. Factory power steering and factory power brakes, with fronts upgraded to disc brakes. Factory options include AM radio and heater, as well as power steering and brakes. All options work correctly. The restoration was done to show standards. The body was stripped to metal and all bodywork was professionally done, starting with a rust-free car. The bed floor looks like new with new stainless hardware. The whole body was primed and blocked three times before using PPG urethane paint. The car was painted complete inside and out, color-sanded and polished. Every piece of chrome trim and stainless were also restored and polished to show standards. The bumpers, bumper guards and grille were all rechromed. The Ranchero hood has been louvered and the antenna was trenched in on the fender, giving the car a sleeker, yet very original and correct look. The Ranchero has new mirrors, door handles, emblems and taillight lenses. All-new interior with correct rare bull emblems on door panels. New kick panels and carpet, armrests and rock scuff plates. It has all new tinted glass, including windshield. All-new rubber moldings around windows. The doors were taken apart, and latches and regulators lubed and repaired. There have been hundreds of hours spent on the three-year restoration.
