This is probably the most country custom build we’ve seen, a true custom innovation that combined the sexy body of a faux-wood-panelled Ford Ranchero and the beastly chassis of the four wheel drive full size Ford Bronco.
This custom build may not be for everyone, but this 1972 Ford Ranchero-Bronco hybrid surely looks ‘creative’.
Standing on huge off-road tires and enormous crash bar, this Ranchero-Bronco hybrid is ready to go off road with a bang, anytime, anywhere. At the back, the hashtag #MonsterRanchero is written at the tailgate.
The beast was not created by simply mounting a Ranchero body to the four wheel drive Bronco chassis. It has a 351 cid V8 engine to power it through off roads. All of the power goes through an automatic transmission and then to the locking hubs, Warn winch, tow package, and 15 inch chrome wheels fitted with General Grabber 35×12.5 inch tires.
The car dealer from Conroe, Texas really enjoys this beast and is proud to be selling it.
“Overall, this classic Ford is pretty solid,” boast the seller in an ad. “It sits on a modified Bronco frame/suspension and a lot of money was put into doing it right. It has been in Texas since being built so there is no major rust, it drives good even at highway speed, and all the major components function like they should. I’ve personally put about 200 miles on the truck with no issues.”
The builder of this Rancho-Bronco hybrid was not satisfied with it just looking bad, they also wanted it to sound beastly. As the dealer explains, “The exhaust was cut off to make it sound as tough as it looks, but we kept it and you are welcome to have it.” It’s up to the next owner if they want to lower it down and put the exhaust back or keep it in its menacing form.
Although the interior looks like everything is in good condition, the dealer says that the vintage Kenwood AM/FM/cassette audio system is not functioning. Because the car is located in Texas since it was built, there are not rust on all metal sheets.
This one of a kind 1972 Ford Ranchero-Bronco hybrid is perfect for anyone who wants to go off-road with style or just simply amaze everyone in town with this awesome beastly ride.
Of course this isn’t for everyone, I get that.
You can have it for only $15,900. Why so cheap?
Because the seller is not really trying to make a large profit but simply want to make room in his garage for other projects. You can’t have a better deal than that, building a similar one would surely cost you a lot more.
