1965 Ford Ranchero Additional Info:

Up for sale is my 1965 Ford Ranchero Deluxe. Quick back history on the car...The car was sold new in the Bay Area in early 66 and was then sold to the second owner in 1970 where is has remained until I got the car a few months ago. It has never lived outside of the SF Bay Area. I bought this car a few months ago and planned to keep it as my work truck forever...however my wife and I found a house to buy and its time to sell most of my cars. Such is life..

2 small quarter sized rust bubbles on the driver side lower bed frame (pictured below)
Dent on tailgate and paint chips/marks/minor dents around the entire vehicleInterior is the definition of patina. Its very cool to see such a survivor car. Everything from the heater to the radio works
Headliner is in nice shape

The car starts every time with 2 pumps of the pedal. It is incredibly reliable. The car is a blast, she has a ton of power! Goes straight down the road. Stops well enough to drive in modern traffic. Never overheats. These survivor quality 60's Fords are getting very difficult to find. The Patina is incredible and honestly it would be a shame to restore the car past the point of where it is now.
