Back in 1957 the new Ford Ranchero was introduced
and advertised as "More than a car -
More than a truck."
It was marketed as a sports car
that could haul your toys.
Well this '57 ProStreet Ranchero
can do that while hauling ass and looking good.
This Radically Styled and Customized Ranchero
looks like a Real Bad Ass but DrivesLlike a Dream.
It was built not only to get from point A to B fast
but to do it in comfort.
Most ProStreet cars don't handle well
on the road but this one drives as good,
if not better, than my family Silverado.
This is a new build with less than 4,000 miles
that took nine years to complete.
The body work is fantastic

The more than 400 Horsepower are Generated
by a Powerful, Growly 390 CID Ford FE V8.
It is bored 0.060 over with Fat, Oversized Valves,
a High Lift Comp Cams Performance Cam
and TRW Flat Top Pistons.
It is Topped by an Edelbrock Manifold,
a 750 cfm Holley Carburetor,
a Pertonix ignition system and
Custom FPA Headers.
Everything inside and out from
oil pump to water pump is new.
All of this is made to look good
with Cobra Le Mans Valve Covers and
A Cool Bug Catcher Peaking Out of the hood.
Cooling is handled by a large truck radiator
with dual electric fans.
Stopping is handled by a
Modern Power Brake System
with disc brakes up front and
drum brakes out back.
Steering is Power Rack and Pinion.
The Front End is Lowered with Dropped Spindles
and cut coils while
the Narrowed 9" Ford Rear End is a Ladder Bar Set-up.
The newly rebuilt third member
has 3.25:1 Gears Which Work Great
for freeway driving and
is still low enough for those stoplight encounters.
The front 165/80R15 Tires are
mounted on 15" x 3.5" Weld DragLite Wheels
while the Rear Hoosier 31x16.50R15
are mounted on 15" x 12" Weld DragLite Wheels.
In between the Engine and Rear end is a
Ford C6 Automatic Transmission Modified
for sure shifts by B & M
with a Modified Gennie Shifter
selecting the gears.
The cargo bed is finished in flat black,
and has two storage areas up front
with flush doors that provide easy access
to the battery and storage areas.
Located at the back of the bed
is a flush mounted 16 gallon fuel cell.
Much attention has been given
to the exterior and
just finished black and gray interior.
The Windshield and All Tinted Glass,
felts, whiskers, and rubber are new.
The Paint Features Custom Graphics,
Satin Finished Trim, and
Real Fire Licks that Scorch the Rust Free Body
on this car.
The door handles and trim have been shaved
and the tailgate smoothed and
molded into the body.
The Custom Interior Features a
completely smoothed dash
with only a full width machine turned insert
application and AutoMeter Pro instruments.
If nothing else up to this point
gave the impression that the driver
of this car is serious then
maybe the large AutoMeter tach and
shift light on the dash should.
The controls for the electric wipers
and aftermarket heater are under the dash.
All other controls: power, fans, fuel pump,
lights and radio
are handled via toggle switches
in the custom built and metal worked
console that runs from the front of the interior
back and up to the rear window.
The console also holds the glove box
and two of the four speakers.
Other features include
Electric Doors and
Remote Custom Autosound USB Stereo.
You might also notice that Everything in the interior
has been moved back 2-3 inches
giving lots of extra leg room.
This Ranchero is finished,
all the bugs have been worked out
and it has been completely dialed in.
It is not a trailer queen,
it is driven several times a week,
and is completely roadworthy,
dependable and ready to drive cross town
or cross country.
This is that car, you know, the car you can
literally buy and drive home
or take on vacation
without turning a wrench.
Needless to say this is a one-of-a-kind
'57 Ford Ranchero that looks good,
moves fast and handles like a dream.
This ProStreet Ranchero is a show car
that is street driven.
It is a car you will want to drive
All of the work described above
was professionally done and
I've tried my best to describe the car accurately.
