1957 Ranchero

Well I got a 1957 Ford Ranchero Today... There is still alot of work to be done on it. I don't have any pics of it yet so I can't show you what it looks like.

I have a question regarding the decoding process... is there any other websites besides www.dearbornclassics.com that has a decoder? All I know about the ranchero is that it has a 292 ci engine, the original color is Cumberland Green and Colonial White and it was manufactured in the Louisville plant.

But I thought I would let you all know I got a ranchero today!

(Its also my First Car)

congrats on the 57 Ranchero purchase. I own a 57 and a 68. The 68 is used as a truck. The 57 I bought a few years back. Decided I didn't need it and sold it, realizing the mistake I finally bought it back again. It is in storage right now, hope to get to it next winter. I really like to 57/8 styling. I'm putting 57 Ranch Wagon side trim on mine.

Good job...I believe the 57-59 Rancheros are the best...full size, lots of power if you want and classic lines!!!!
