When Ford introduced the new-for-1953 F-100, the public responded and gave the Blue Oval company an edge over Chevrolet. When Chevrolet introduced their Task Force series two years later, the crown went back to the Bowtie company. To help Ford regain their lead, Ford needed something more innovative and new - something that had never been done before.

With the introduction of the Ranchero, Chevrolet was on the back foot once again. The new vehicle had the luxury and looks of a Fairlane with the practicality of a pickup from the B-pillar back. With power from a 292 cubic-inch V8, the vehicle had plenty of power.

During the Ranchero's first year of production, over 21,075 examples were sold and would continue to prosper until 1959 when Chevrolet introduced the El Camino.

This particular Custom 300 Series Ranchero is finished in a two-tone Flame Red over Colonial White paint scheme with optional 'hockey stick' side trim. It is a well optioned Rancher that left Ford's Kansas City, Missouri factory on October 5th of 1957. It is one of just 6,428 examples produced of the top-of-the-line Custom series. Luxury features include power steering, brakes, and windows, fender-mounted side mirrors, Kelsey-Hayes wire wheels, chromed exhaust tips, padded dash, and SelectAire air conditioning.

Power is from the C-code 292ci V8 mated to an optional Ford-O-Matic automatic transmission. Power is transmitted through a 3.56:1 rear axle.

This vehicle has been restored to a very high standard in the late-2000s. The inside has red and white vinyl that matches the exterior. The interior also has an optional clock and radio.
