1969 Ford Ranchero 390-cid

Here’s a nice factory big block Ranchero that someone started to disassemble and then lost interest for whatever reason. It actually looks pretty much unmolested and seems to have fairly straight body panels. Hard to tell for sure of course without a closer inspection, but the owner says it’s an Arizona car and so doesn’t have much rust. Of course we all know how that goes. “Almost no rust” usually means “almost no rust you can see until you start stripping off paint.” But hey, it could be true in this case.

According to the owner it’s an original S code big block, which means it has a 390-4bbl from the factory. The 390 is in the same FE engine family as the 428 CJ, although it doesn’t produce as much HP for the weight. Behind the 390 is a C6 automatic transmission. Other options include factory air conditioning, power disc brakes and power steering. Pretty nice options list.

Looks like there are quite a few parts laying in the bed and interior. The radiator, grille, and misc chrome trim pieces are still there as is an extra hood sitting in the bed.
