Great read, Joey...you had me on the edge of my seat!
See ya in Austin in a couple weeks!
Yes..Al Dixon.. from The Windsor Ontario area.
His brother Bob Dixon has a 57 CUSTOM 427 gasser… just recently restored.Al Dixon's 427 Ranch is being restored now
Both Brothers(as I understand) have had these cars for many many years and raced both.
I could be wrong on the ownership…. but I am pretty sure ……..
Bob's 427 custom…
What a Pair…Both are club members called the "Street Kleaners"
The rear fender radius on that Ranchero is perfect!
Yup I want both of them.
Joey the Blonde is yours!
Well,that was easily solved.Now we get more eye candy!
I ♥ Norwell
I am pretty sure Mark @Fast Elvis can give quite a bit more info on the whole deal, as Mark has spoken with Al and Bob Extensively.
There's something about the inconguity of the '58 Ranchero's front end against it's '57' rear - I dig that. Both are off the charts and awesome - but that Seedan though.......Thanks for sharing
If you count this post, you have shown me this Ranchero 488 times. I'm not complaining.
The Ranchero is OK, but that 57 custom is bitchn. Although Ford outsold Chevy in 57, you just don't see the Fords around especially as nice as this one.
Built a model of a '57 Ford gasser years ago. Not as nice as this though. More info, please. Thanks Joey!
You can't see it here but Bob's car has a SOHC motor under the hood. This car is very clean. Al's Ranchero is almost done from what I have been hearing.
Here is a link to Bob's 57 article http://canadianhotrods.com/features-v3.php?action=hotPage&ID=115
always thought it was neat that the '57&'58 rancheros had the same tail lites.
OH MY EYES, MY EYES ARE BURNING!!!!!!!!
57 and 58 rancharo's and sedan delivery's used the 57 style tail light stock.wow,those cars are nice..
