1969 Ranchero GT

1969 Ranchero Lead

This is my 1969 Ranchero GT. This little truck is powered by a 428 cubic inch Cobra Jet engine, equipped with RAM Air and backed up with a C6 automatic transmission. According to the Marti Report on this truck it is only 1 of 101 with this potent engine and transmission package.

1969 Ranchero Back

I am only the third owner of the car, and before I acquired it, it belonged to my Uncle, who passed away in 2012. I purchased the little hauler from my Aunt, and I completed a rotisserie restoration in 2018.

    This absolutely gorgeous. My folks bought a f-250 top of line ranger with a 390 in June 69 with a new 22 foot camper. They kept it for about 19 years. That's when we moved to Alaska. I'm still here. My father in law had a 75 Ranchero with a 351 Cleveland. Wonderful ride also.
