This is an awesome vehicle and is in excellent condition. A total head turner that combines the classic look with the comfort and reliability of modern technology. It runs and looks outstanding and for the past 20 years it has been owned by a certified Master Auto Mechanic. It has always been garage kept and includes a custom car cover, service manual and even a few extra parts. This Classy Classic is turn-key ready for the road and of course the winner’s circle at the Hot Rod show.

The NADA Guide appraises the 1957 Ford Ranchero at $30,300 in “Average” condition while Haggerty appraises it at $35,100 also in “Average” condition. This Ranchero is in far better than “Average” condition.
