As of Saturday afternoon, there are 8 interested bidders and one of them is willing to shell out at least $4800. The IDs are hidden so I could not tell if any of them were good ol' boys from north of the border or not...

I wanna see the look on somebody's wife's face when that gem is dropped off in the driveway... "you paid how much???"

Assuming it was a beater to start with...and minus the 4x4 chassis... I still think it's cool. I'm a New York redneck, I guess.

Cool

Mike It would certainly turn heads at a show & shine and would also win the " original" class division.

Mike, based on the number of bids and that someone was willing to go at least $5500, alot of people agreed with you!

I think Alexander had it right with his "Ranchero" label.

Just think...Ford could have had a Thunderbird Division... the 2 seater sports car, the 4 seater Squarebird, and the Ranchero 4x4!

John I am not sure that the car world is quite ready for the Ranchero 4 X 4 but you never know.

Wow.

Best quote from the listing was from all the questions:

"The previous owner had a lawn service so he pulled a trailer with mowers in it."

Imagine that!

There used to be a transmission 4X4 shop here in town called Bullshift Transmissions. The owner was Steve. He built a few strange 4X4's. A 66 Baracuda, a 77 El Camino AND a 4X4 Checker Cab. All decent quality . . . But strange . . .
