Ford Ranchero GT, 1968 or 1969
I've always had a soft spot for Rancheros and El Caminos. Never really wanted to own one, but the looks appeal to me. And this one looks so cool. No idea what the drivetrain is or how she would perform, but she's fun to find by the side of the road.
Home Brew Swamp Hopper
I have no idea about this one. It's only my guess she's a swamp hopper. That's going by the diesel engine, with tall stacks for the air intake and the exhaust. Well, and the very unusual wheel-and-track arrangement. That trailer is hydraulically connected to the body. I couldn't figure out the drive train arrangement, on account of not being willing to crawl around on the ground in my current state of health. Weirdest of all, she sports a long-expired Washington license plate, implying she was once street-legal.
As usual, more of both vehicles at the Flickr set.
