Edsel Camino: 1961 Ford Ranchero

The Ford Ranchero was Ford's version of the El Camino -- and it offered a decent combination of car driving capability with the utility of a pickup.  Some scoff at the awkward proportions, but we think it is rad. Find this 1961 Ford Ranchero offered for $6850 in San Francisco, CA via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.

  1. Shouldn't like the cowl induction hood on a Ford but I do like it.

  2. Sort of an awkward transition from the back of the cab into the bed in the three-quarter's view, but in profile, I dig it. Lotta old-school muscle car for the dough.
