1959 Ford Ranchero Project Package!

'59 Ranchero

The 1957-1959 Rancheros were patterned after Ford’s full-sized Fairline. In Lindsay, California, a 1959 project Ranchero is available and waiting to be completed. It is listed here on eBay with a BIN of $3,500, which includes some extras.

No, you are not seeing double. This 1959 Ranchero project package includes a second front clip, four extra doors, a bedpan, front and rear bumpers, two deluxe heaters, a clock, stainless trim, and an automatic steering mast.

The 352 Thunderbird V-8 was one of the engine options available for the buyer to order in 1957-59 models. This package does not include a engine though, so you will have to hunt down one yourself. If you wish to see the interior, the underside, or the engine bay please contact the seller. As per the seller there is a clear pink slip, it’s a non-op title, not a salvage, for this Ranchero. Hopefully the underside isn’t too crusty and the floorboards are in place. If you were to pick this package up what power plant would you drop in? Many of the ’59 Rancheros were painted two-tone. Would you go for the original color or a new two-tone color combo? This could be a great ride for the shows, club events and runs to the parts store!

    Actually, 1957-1959 Rancheros were based on the Custom-Custom 300 series, not the Fairlane. This is a San Jose-built car that originally came with a 223 6-cylinder. Lindsey is a nice, dry climate, so rust should not be expected. As west coast cars go, $3500 is tall money for a car in #5 condition and he’ll be lucky to see it.

    A “bedpan” is a portable toilet used in hospitals! If he’s including one of those, I’d ask him to keep it.

    Some people are better at collecting parts than restoring vehicles. Whoever gets it back on the road will have plenty of extra parts should they be a really bad driver!

    Street rod this thing with a Coyote crate engine and a six speed trans.

    My vote is for two-tone. This body style looks great with white as the lower body color, and almost anything on top.

    They look good done up like an Edsel with the addition of the Edsel front clip.

    They sure do. But ever try swapping the rear end?
