1960 Falcon Ranchero – Clone of the Bonneville Racer
Super Clean 1960 Falcon Ranchero
Did you see the race car version of this car? When I saw this Ford Falcon Ranchero Race Car at Bonneville, owner Alan Moss said he’s got another Ranchero, and it’s for sale! Check it out:
1960 Ford Falcon Ranchero: Completely sandblasted inside and out, patch paneled (welded) running a 302 small block Ford with flat top pistons, a mild cam, balanced, a 500 cfm AFB. In total, there are 12,000 miles on engine and trans. It’s got an AOD 4 speed auto with A+ od servo, .6:1 OD, shift kit, with updated clutch packs. It will hold any gear.
Out back, there’s an 8″ Ford rear with five lug Ford pattern, 3.50 ratio, open. With the 3.50 gears it is very lively in traffic but with the .6 od fourth gear it goes down the highway nicely.Up front features a Mustang II front end, disc brakes on five lug Ford Mustang II rotors, manual rack and pinion steering, 205/60×15 tires on 6×15″ steel wheels.
Inside, there’s a tilt column from a Cherokee, 60×40 seats from a Ranger pickup.
Anyone following this site knows I’m partial to the round bodied Falcons… so much so I’m building a 1963 Falcon Wagon myself if you’d like to check it out.
Which one do you want? The 280Z inline six powered race car or the street driven cool cruiser?
