Beautiful 1961 Ford Ranchero. In 1960 the Ranchero became much smaller than the original variant and was now based on Ford's compact Falcon, specifically the two-door sedan delivery variant. The popularity of small, economical cars led Ford to believe the market wanted a more practical vehicle, one much smaller, lighter and cheaper than a full-size pickup truck, and indeed the Ranchero sold well in this incarnation. The vehicle standard power plant was an economical 144 cu in (2.4 L) straight-6. he Ranchero had an 800 lb load capacity. This vehicle runs and drives wonderfully. A joy to drive and a real head turner. You can cruise the streets and run errands to the hardware store in this classic!! Call us today to discuss this vehicle.
