I had a 58 for a brief moment. Bought it for $100 about four years ago. Pulled it out of a lady's backyard. It was her ex-husband's. Cleaned it up and sold it on eBay a few weeks later for $2k. It needed a floor and rockers. Even had extra trim pieces.

Nice looking ride. I would love to cruise through town in it.

It looks to be in your back yard, Ross. You should go for it! Looks sharp.

I've always wanted one of these, and honestly I'd consider this one except that it has a red interior. I just can't stand red interiors! They make me nauseous, no matter how nicely done. Same with green, I can't tell you how many nice cars I've passed on because of a puke green interior. It should be against the law to make interiors in anything but black, gray, or tan.

I love the 57's.

Years ago my daily driver was a 59 Ranchero. I never should have sold it. I had blown the engine and needed cash. I sold it for $400 and a case of beer to a hunchback....lol

I know what you mean. I passed on a sweet 72 Ranchero years ago for $500. It needed a quarter panel replaced from collision damage, and the parts were still available from Ford at the time, so it would've been an easy fix. Had a 351 CJ in it and everything. But it was green inside and out. I could have changed the exterior easy enough, but that ugly, lima bean green went clear to the bone, and I didn't want to mess with it.
