Why is our beautiful slick 1978 Ford Ranchero so hard to sell?

Asked by Oct 21, 2011 at 09:40 PM about the 1978 Ford Ranchero

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

We get so many people that inquire and state what great condition it is and all of the original parts are an asset to the car and yet we have no serious bites.  Most people end up telling us they actually want an EL Camino.  Why?

poor gas milage,high gas prices.rember anybody will tell you anything.


Could be the price you might be asking is a little high. Alot of people are looking for drop dead bargains with the economy in the condition it is currently. Maybe the rarity of the year with the package it has etc. Plus on another note there is always the treehuggers that want the gas economy to boot.

did you guys buy that from a teenager from a teen from hillsboro ohio or and oldman who traded it for a tractor

my step dad said its identical to his

did someone spraypaint silver bullet on the rear bumper
