History:


The car was found behind a shed. It didn’t run and the body needed painting. I got the motor rebuilt and the car painted. The engine is a 400CID stock, with a 2 barrel carb. It goes from 0 to 60 in 6.5 secs.

The tires are 14 inches with Positive traction rear end and with automatic transmission (I would like to put a 4 speed trany in it) it has air which still works great and am/fm /cassette not factory.

I try to keep it as much as possible original… no fancy dress kit or anything like that. The paint is the same paint number as the car/truck was from the factory. Everything is stock, but there is still a little work to be done to it… like the headliner and the tail gate latch, just little things like that. Also the Carpet is new and it’s factory.

It’s driven to town at least once a week for joy riding. This Car/Truck does turn some heads… Actually many people has walked up to me and asked about the car. They usually say that they haven’t seen many or these Car/Trucks around (I know that there are only two of them around here where I live). It’s a good feeling when people ask me about my 76 Ford Ranchero.

    76 Ford Ranchero Pics
    I was looking at your pictures of this “1976” Ford Ranchero. I need to let you know that this is a 1973 model of the same car. I was a teenager who loved looking at cars, and I remember the grill changes from this era. I also confirmed my memory by looking up pictures of the 1976 model on Ebay and on a search engine, and I am correct. The ’76 model grill had six vertical sections with very small squares filling up the section. The parking lights are also at each end of the grill and are also fully vertical, whereas on the ’73 model, they are small rectangles embedded in the middle of a grill section. While I wasn’t really “into” those types of vehicles they were nice looking as they were varieties of their mid-sized sedan and coupe counterparts. Anyway, thank you for your pictures and letting me reminisce a bit about the cars I grew up with.

      Thank You For Commenting Mark...
      I am not the owner of the 76 Ranchero, so I can’t explain the discrepancy.

      However, the owner might read your comment and respond.

      What I can say, is that the owner specifies that he is keeping the Ranchero “…as much as possible original” so it is possible that he was not able to find the correct front end and replaced it with one from a 73.

      Obviously this is just my speculation, but considering that the 6th Generation included 72 to 76 model years and there was not much difference between each year, the front end of a 73 can probably be fitted to a 76 with minimal or no modifications.

      Again, appreciate your comment.
