The Ford Ranchero was a coupe utility produced between 1957 and 1979.  Unlike a pickup truck, a coupe utility is built on a car platform not a truck platform.  For the years 1977 through 1979 this platform was the Ford Thunderbird.  Three trim levels were offered; the base Ranchero, the Ranchero 500, and the top of the line Ranchero GT.  The Ranchero GT was equipped with a “Flight Bench” seat, a GT stripe, dual sport mirrors, bright hubcaps with trim rings, and a “Sport” instrumentation group with turned cluster appliqué.  The Ranchero GT was powered by a 351 cid, V-8 engine producing 162 horsepower.  There were 12,159 Ford Ranchero GTs built in 1979 at a list price of $6,289.
