Newstalgia Motors Presents Car No. 00177:
1972 Ford Ranchero GT
This Ranchero has found a new home!
However, we'd be happy to locate another one just for you.
This offering is an absolutely exceptional example of an original southern California,
2nd owner, always garaged, RUST FREE, and with no evidence of accidents '72 Ranchero
- Exterior: The truck was repainted with Dupont Imron Dark Blue Metallic
& White in approximately 1994. While very presentable as is, there are some
minor scratches and imperfections in the paint, most of which could be buffed out
if desired. In other words, the finish is a very nice ten-footer. There is a recessed
power antenna installed in the body flair behind the driver door and a custom tube
grill. All chrome and aluminum trim is original and has not been restored. The current
owner installed a class IV hitch in order to occasionally tow an 8' utility trailer
for light hauling. The bed is totally free of imperfections or fillers and has a
four year old Line X protective finish.
- Interior: The interior features the GT Rally Cluster with tach
and working quartz clock, Factory Air Conditioning, interval wipers, power steering,
power front disc brakes, and a NEW headliner installed in 2007. The pillar and window
seals have also been replaced. The seat and door panels are unmolested and in exceptional
condition for the age of the truck. There is one small scratch in the padded dash.
The carpet is original, shows some wear, but is in overall good shape. It has original
seat belts and shoulder harnesses. An iPod interface, power amplifier and speakers
were added to the original working Factory AM/FM Stereo.
- Driveline: According to the original owner, the engine and transmission
were professionally rebuilt at the high 90k miles mark (undocumented). The 351 "H"
code 2 bl. carb engine is strong and responsive, with excellent oil pressure and
no oil leaks or unusual noises. The 3-Speed Cruise-O-Matic transmission shifts smoothly
through the gears and the engine temperature always remains cool.
Since 2007, the current owner has installed NEW brakes, NEW Alternator, New radiator
and hoses, NEW A/C compressor, dryer and updated the remainder of the system. Also
added for performance and efficiency was a PerTronix Polished Billet Distributor
w/Flamethrower Coil. A 3.0:1 open differential and rear coil suspension with air
shocks brings up the rear. The original wheels, trim rings, hubcaps, grill, and
air cleaner are included with the vehicle.
- Wheels & Tires: "Vintage" American Racing Torq-Thrust D wheels
are shod with P235/60 (front) and 255/60 R15 (rear) BFG Radial TA’s.
This is one great, classic daily driver and reliable muscle truck/car that will
always turn heads wherever you drive it!
