1979 Ranchero details


Asked by Oct 04, 2016 at 05:42 AM about the 1979 Ford Ranchero

Question type: General

I have just bought this car and will add pics later today. First I would like to
know what the mfg label off door tells us about this car. Everything works on the
car, but needs TLC. It has 94,000 miles and I am third owner that I know of. I
want to restore it and drive it everyday. It is a GT. Thanks for any and all help :)

Try a VIN decoder it will give more details about the car/ http://www.vindecoderz.com/


Hi joemom and thx for the fast reply. I tried the vincode link you supplied and they said I needed 17 characters for the vin. :( Maybe they dont support cars as old as 1979? So I still could use some help to ID this car and what engine, gearing, etc that it has. Thx again :)


THIS MAY HELP. http://www.ranchero.us/forum/index.php?threads/vin-decoder.4225/
