Amazing Ebay TBird
 
Take a look at Ebay item 280101290409 .

All I can say is: just when you think you've seen everything, something comes along to prove you were wrong!

A four-wheel-drive Squarebird Ranchero! I looked at the pictures. It is not a hack job. Most of the body details are well done.

Just the thing for headin' out to the South Fourty to drop off a few bales of hay to the cattle and make it back home without gittin' stuck in the snow!! What will them Ford engineers think up next???

I can just see the commercial spots during Bonanza episodes.....

Great Idea !

I think it's odd looking. The preportions seem "off" somehow.
Alexander, good to see you back. You are home? Yes, I think.
That's got to be comforting, to be in one's own home.

Remember the song Johnny Cash did some years back about the autoworker that swiped parts each year off the assembly line? For decades he brought parts home in his lunch box and built a car in his garage using them.

"and when I turned on the headlights... all three of them came on" It was 1 49-50-51-52-53....

I wonder when it was built. Hope it was when Squarebirds were plenty. I would hate to see a Squarebird today torn up like that. Then again it may have been a rusted beyound type of vehicle.

I placed my bid on e-bay but they said I couldn't make a minus bid but when I looked at that thing I said they would haft to pay me to take it home.

John I am back from holidays and couldn't believe my eyes when I saw your post. I think Alexander has it down pat on his description of the Squarebird / Ranchero. I think a couple of the Alberta red necks up here might be interested in chooching around in this.
