The Beginning of Change in Ranchero!
“The 1960-1963 Ford Falcon Ranchero was more practical than its diminutive looks suggested. Its 800-pound payload rated 100 pounds more than the much larger Chevrolet El Camino. Power wasn’t in the V-8 El Camino’s class, however: the Falcon’s sole engine at first was a 144-cid six rated at 90 bhp. The 1961 Ford Ranchero differed little in appearance from the 1960 model. Under the hood, however, buyers could opt for a larger, 170-cid six producing 101 bhp. The 1963 Ford Ranchero sported another new grille. More importantly, Ranchero optioned a V-8: Ford’s fine 260-cid small-block with 164 bhp.” Source: How Stuff Works – Additionally you can see more on Ranchero Here!

1960 2nd Generation Ford Ranchero Brochure!
Print was King in the Sixties – Here’s part of a slick brochure from Ford featuring Falcon Ranchero attributes! Source: Old Car Brochures – And that reminds me of last Thursday! – Haa! A bunch of Cars & Coffee guys were having breakfast. A noob at the table asked how we knew so much about cars – While everyone chuckled I told the guy to check out a good place to start learning. I gave him this link to US Mechanic. It was a good day!
1964-65 2nd Generation Ford Ranchero!
This 1965 Ford Falcon Ranchero UTE is still a 2nd Generation Ford Ranchero. It’s Bigger! Offers more power! In 1965, the 289 cu in (4.7 L) V8 replaced the discontinued 260 and an alternator replaced the generator in all Ford cars. The Ranchero evolved right along with Falcon. It had grown! Yet it’s still smaller, lighter, and cheaper than a full-sized pickup truck! And indeed the Ranchero sold well in this incarnation.
