YAK Car Pic of the Day
by Jim Corbran - posted 12:00 am, April 4, 2013
Here’s a 1979 Ford Ranchero, the final year (so far) for the car/truck originally built on a 1957 Ford station wagon platform. These were popular back in the day with folks who needed a (very) light pickup with a bit of style. Later they seemed to be more popular with customizers and hot rodders, and they’re still being produced in Australia in big numbers. Below is a photo of a customized Ranchero made by mating the front half/interior bits from a Mercury Cougar with a Ranchero. Probably one-of-a-kind. Read about it here at wildaboutcarsonline.com. Today’s Pic Car was seen a while back in East Aurora — so long ago that the photo was taken out the window of the previous YAKmobile.
