Early-70s Ford Ranchero – Unbelievable
‘This one is tough, semi-sporty and a looker. Legend has it that the idea for the Ranchero came about in the 1930s when a woman wrote a letter to Ford Australia requesting a vehicle that could "carry them to church on Sunday and take the pigs to market on Monday." A couple decades later, this muscle car was born.
This station-wagon-meets-pickup-truck is — say it with me — business in the front and party in the back. In this gritty crime drama, which features a stellar, based-on-a-true-story script and jaw-dropping performances, it’s the 1970s-era Ranchero driven by ace detective Grace (Toni Collette) that also makes us swoon. In Grace’s case, the car is all business all the time as she tries to track down the most predatory of criminals. Squared up with few frills (save for the classic grille and those sweet rectangular headlights), this 2-seater was lengthy and roomy. It’s perfect for a couple of cops chasing down the most nefarious characters in one of the most haunting shows of the season.’
