    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"

  4. The rear fender radius on that Ranchero is perfect!

    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.

    always thought it was neat that the '57&'58 rancheros had the same tail lites.
