This 1968 Ford Ranchero is a fourth generation example in a run of Rancheros from 1957 to 1979, just over half a million built in that time. Many engines were available, from 250 cu.in six, to the 428 Cobra Jet.
This British grand tourer has four full-sized seats, powered by a DOHC straight six, the classic Aston Martin engine, making 283 bhp @ 5500 rpm and 288 lb·ft of torque @ 3850 rpm. The Vantage version had 325 bhp. It weighed 3,760 lbs. Only 787 were made between 1967 and 1972. These are rising in value, currently ranging from about $64k for one in fair condition, to almost $200k for concours. Unfortunately, this handsome example has right hand drive.
