Imported to the UK in 2009, this Falcon Ranchero has had a repaint in BMW M-style Pyrite Metallic Brown and currently registers some 73,000 miles. Further cosmetic improvements include rechroming of the rear bumper and rear bed beeding. A custom tonneau cover has also been sourced and a new water pump fitted. Benefiting from a recent service which included oil and filter change, plugs, points, and change of lubricant in the gearbox and rear axle it comes with a fresh MoT. Powered by a 3.3-litre six-cylinder engine allied to a three-speed automatic gearbox, the Ranchero model also has the distinction amongst pickups of being the first type owned by no less than Elvis Presley.

More than a car. more than a truck - a Double-duty beauty! These were the taglines that Ford used to promote its Ranchero, produced from 1957-1979 as a luxury utility vehicle, with car-derived styling and trim. Rancheros were built on various chassis over the years, with a total production of 508,355 units, but from '64-67 the 'personal pickup' used the Falcon compact as its base.
