ranchero info

Hello guys, Im new to to forum, I currently own a 62 falcon sedan that is 100% complete.. I have recently ran into a couple of falcons im looking at buying and wanted to know some info.. the first is a 63 falcon futura convertible, the second is a 60 falcon ranchero.. My goal is to own 1 of every falcon style they produced from 60-63.. So heres my question... The 60 ranchero has a canvas top on it with a round porthole window.. when I first looked at the car it had a cover on it so I actually thought it was a wagon, after removing the cover I saw this weird top.. does anyone know or have seen anything like this?? Is it a factory option, or is it aftermarket?? I would say this car is a 6 out of 10, whats the value?? both cars have been sitting in a dry environment since 1985 and are 1 owners.. Thanks for any info you may have.. Bill

Re: ranchero info

If it is indeed a ranchero, then it is aftermarket. Sounds like it might be a sedan delivery with an after market window installed. A picture or two would help greatly.

Re: ranchero info

It is no doubt a ranchero, the top is canvas.. but with it on it looks like a delivery.. just real odd, have never seen one before... gonna try to get over in the next few days to get some pictures, I went ahead and bought the 63 convertible.. just really trying to figure out what to offer on this ranchero.. thanks for your reply

Re: ranchero info

This is a picture of the top. We did find a tag that says "Whitco". But I would still like to know if anyone has any more info or has seen any others like this.

They are----all down the side and over the roof.

I myself will be looking for replacement trim when I get my car going.
The cover my uncle had made uses the snaps in the trim.

Re: ranchero info
