1968 Ford Ranchero GT
This beautiful example of Ford's '68 Ranchero comes complete with the Marti Report and plenty of desirable options.
True GTs are rare enough but this one is fully equipped with factory air conditioning, power steering, Cruise-O-Matic transmission, and strong 302 engine - all factory options. Everything works as it should, making this a fun to drive classic!
The interior is clean and damage free. The black bucket seats have the optional console nestled between them. The factory AM radio has been upgraded to a classic look AM/FM unit with an iPod input. Aftermarket speakers and an amplifier were carefully added to the spare tire area, replacing those items and adding great sound.
The exterior is finished in brilliant Sunlit Gold paint with black GT striping. The body is clean, straight, and solid. The truck bed is in very good condition with minor scuffing on the wheel well humps. The chrome and trim are highly polished and shine brilliantly. The undercarriage is solid with no visible damage or signs of pan repair or replacement.
The Marti Report determines that only two '68 Rancheros were optioned as ours was from the factory. This excellent Ranchero is looking for a new range to roam over and call home.
