Edsel Camino: 1961 Ford Ranchero

The Ford Ranchero was Ford’s version of the El Camino — and it offered a decent combination of car driving capability with the utility of a pickup.  Some scoff at the awkward proportions, but we think it is rad. Find this 1961 Ford Ranchero offered for $6850 in San Francisco, CA via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.
