1967 Ford Fairlane 500 Ranchero 289 with a 3-speed "on the tree".

The car

The original Ford Model T and Model A pickup trucks were developed by adding a pickup box behind a car's body, which was initially a roadster. In 1934, Lew Bandt, a designer at Ford Australia, innovated by integrating a loadbed seamlessly into a coupe, creating a versatile vehicle suitable for both everyday use and practical tasks like transporting goods. This pioneering design led to the creation of the Ranchero, the first postwar American vehicle of its kind. Derived from a popular sedan model, the Ranchero combined the stylish appearance of a sedan with the functionality of a light-duty pickup truck.

The 1967 Ranchero, built on the post-1966 Falcon/Fairlane chassis, retained the basic body of the 1966 Ranchero but incorporated Fairlane trim, front sheet metal, and interior features instead of Falcon components. Marketed as the Fairlane Ranchero, this model continued the tradition of blending sedan sophistication with pickup practicality.

This particular car is intended for driving, reflecting its status as a driver's vehicle. While it may exhibit some signs of wear typical of a vehicle regularly used on the road, it remains impressive overall. Notably, the trunk is remarkably well-maintained considering its usage as a driver's car.

The engine
This Ranchero has the 289cui engine, is in a great state and runs smoothly. It has a 3-speed on the tree manual transmission. We have not done any work to the engine because it just runs smoothly. The column shifter and transmission is something to get used to. But since it is only a 3-speed, it should be fine.


The interior is in good condition overall. The seats and door panels appear to be new or restored. There are no cracks in the leather. However, there is some wear on the steering wheel, armrest, and console with the clocks, likely from regular use. Nevertheless, the leatherwork throughout still looks impressive and almost new. With a bit of care, it could easily regain its original appearance.

This car is sold through our consignment sales program. It comes with a US title & amp; import taxes paid. On request, we can transport this car worldwide and help with Dutch, German or Belgian registration.
