1979 Ford Ranchero GT Resto-Mod
Why This Car Is Special
The Ranchero was introduced for the 1957 model year and ran until 1979. The seventh generation was based on the Ford LTD and last 3 years from 1977-1979.
This 1979 Ford Ranchero Resto-Mod we have here at Skyway Classics represents the final generation of the legend but with its highly modified Super Cobra Jet engine and drivetrain, slick silver paint job, and red and white custom interior, it really takes it up a notch.

Under the hood is a “Super Cobra Jet” 428 cubic inch V8 engine with a lot of attitude and extra go-fast goodies like the aluminum heads and Edelbrock intake, four-barrel carburetor, polished aluminum valve covers, chrome open-element air cleaner, MSD electronics and distributor, tube headers, dual exhaust, and performance spark plug wire set.
It has a maintained a great look inside the engine compartment and the engine fires up nicely as the V8 inhales deeply. That attitude is backed up further by great driving features, like power steering, power brakes w/discs up front, air conditioning, serpentine belt system, aluminum radiator, H.D. rear end, and a three-speed automatic transmission shifted on the column.
The silver of the exterior goes well with the red/white custom plush interior. It has nice comfort features like the twin front power adjustable bucket seats with armrests, air conditioning, classic dual-spoke steering wheel, red door panels, red carpet and floor mats, red factory dash with a full compliment of black-faced gauges including the tach and it’s surrounded by a sporty machine-turned aluminum panel with accessory gauges under the dash
The interior also has power windows and locks, remote mirror, a modern stereo AM/FM radio and seat belts welcome you into the cab.
The ample storage space behind the seat is a nice perk of this Ranchero and the interior is all luxury and is comfortable enough to drive all day long.
Not only is this the final generation for the Ranchero, but it’s arguably the best one, too. Ours is painted in silver with a full black strobe stripe package, flared fenders, and a GT logo decal on the rear flanks that make this look like a true GT machine.
And that design translates well into this pickup/coupe as it also has chrome bumpers front and rear, grey and chrome Shelby mag-style wheels with low profile black sidewall tires to complete this very vintage and sporty look.
The inside of the bed is also painted to match and is protected by a rubber bed mat.
This 1979 Ford Ranchero Resto-Mod we have here at Skyway Classics is a super neat Resto-Mod GT with a ton of appeal that does a great job of providing power, great looks and all the options you can ask for in a classic car
