1957 FORD RANCHERO

Message  Predicta le Sam 16 Nov - 19:20


To begin with the prior owner who built the car was a exceptional engineer who was a master at craftsmanship and restoring cars. A few years ago he passed away and the current owner was a good friend of his. He ended up acquiring the Ranchero and has been going to all the car shows and events with it. It could be used as a daily driver as it goes that good. This vehicle was featured in the 2003 June issue of Super Rod Magazine. There are 5 pages dedicated to the history of this truck. It would take me too long to write everything about it but if you give a call I would be more than happy to go over it with you. Just to give some inside information the running gear is a stock Mercury 390 V-8 4 BBL with a Richmond 5 Speed Manual Transmission and a 9 inch Ford Rear. It cruises nicely but has the power to boot. Has Power Steering, Four Wheel Disc Brakes, Power Windows, Power Door Poppers, Flow Master Dual Exhaust, Ice Cold Air Conditioning, AM/FM Stereo, Beautiful Tan Naugahide Interior, Louvered Hood, Torque Thrust Wheels, Tubular Grille, Hard Tonneau Cover and more. Roof has a 2 inch chop, has sunken antenna, sliced openings by the tail light housings to give marker light impressions, 56 Ford outer rear wheel wells to accomodate bigger tires, 58 Ford Headlights remanned into the 57 fenders and a beautiful hugger orange paint job.

Ford 1957 - Richard Zocchi

Message  Predicta le Jeu 19 Déc - 9:49

Welcome to an incredible world of chopped tops, pastel pearl paints, and slammed suspensions, this is the collection of Richard Zocchi. Richard is very well known internationally for his impressive award winning customs. The customs, all designed by Richard, blend long flowing bodies, chopped tops, and an incredible attention to detail to create some of the best customs in the world. All customs typically start off with an excellent low mileage original car (sorry purists).These cars are typically shown for one season and then retired. They are typically only shown at a few select California shows, never out of the state. With a new custom being built annually, space for all of these classics is running out, even for Richard. Being offered here is one of those classics. Some of these cars have been sitting for many years and may require some minor mechanical massaging to get them street ready and some are ready to go now. Please call with any questions.


TOP: The top has been chopped three inches. All body work was performed by John Aiello of Marco's Lucky 7 Customs of Antioch, CA.


BODY: Headlights were frenched two inches with hand-made chrome rings. The chrome grill was made out of 3/8" aluminum bars, created by Glory Grills. The front bumper was frenched by extending the pan over the top of the bumper with the use of round rod. Bumper bolts were flushed.

Wheel wells and rockers were lowered 3/4". All door and trunk handles were eliminated and Unkl Al's solenoids were installed.

Taillights were frenched three inches with hand-made chrome rings. Perforated metal was used over red plastic to create the taillights then capped off with a large bullet. The license plate was frenched into the body and the gas nozzle was put into the trunk. The rear bumper pan was hand-made and the bumper bolts were flushed and the bumper ends were capped off with a nice clean look. Stainless on doors was re-worked to eliminate the key hole to create a continuous unbroken line. New gold anodized inserts were made and installed.



PAINT: Paint is blue-green PPG mixture by Marcos Garcia, owner of Lucky 7 Customs of Antioch, CA. All the edges of the stainless and body were fogged in (highlighted) a darker shade of the same color.



SUSPENSION: Suspension sits on air bags.



INTERIOR: Bucket seats were used and lowered for head clearance. Upholstery is white pearl trimmed with blue-green ultra suede. Plush blue-green carpets finish off this perfect setting. Work was performed by Bob Divine of Martinez, CA who also installed a high tech Pioneer stereo system.


ENGINE: Running gear is a Ford 351 Cleveland.


WHEELS/TIRES: Hubcaps were custom made from a 1956 Lincoln Premiere, capped off with a bullet. Tires are Diamondback Classics 195 R-75-15.


OVERALL CONDITION: Show ready.

Richard Zocchi's Fabulous '57 Ford

Message  Predicta le Ven 3 Jan - 9:24


It would be fair to say that Richard Zocchi is a powerhouse of custom car building. His quiver of original customs is as unique and diverse as it is colorful and stylish. Having turned out six show-winning rides in the last four years, Richard has been able to evolve a collection of custom cars rivaled by few.

It's not as if he buys other people's customs-Richard simply gets an idea and goes at it! Over the years he has built dozens of top customs, including replicas of his own early cars. His latest is this delightful and subtle '57 Ford Fairlane. It features all the classic Zocchi touches, and its finish is like a polished stone in a fine Rodeo Drive jewelry store

"I picked the Fairlane for this project when I figured out how gracious it would look with a just the right custom touches," Richard says. "The grille was an easy one, as were the headlights and the taillights-they were just beggin' to be frenched. But it was the roof that got me! I knew if we chopped the roof lightly, it would sit down just right and we would get an ever-so-nice new roofline."

Over the years, Richard has forged a great relationship with Marcos Garcia (the painter) and John Aiello (the bodyman) at Lucky 7 Customs in Antioch, California. This time around John also oversaw the installation of the Air Lift air spring system on the Ford's suspension. The car's previous owner had yanked the Y-block in favor of a 351 Cleveland/C4 combo, so Richard just had to add dress-up items to complete the mechanical side of things.

Both Richard and John agreed that the top chop had to be done with restraint and refinement. To this end, John brought the lid down 3 inches, a feat that involved leaning the rear glass forward, sinking it down into the trunk panel, and pushing it up into the roof slightly. He also shaved and lowered the driprail. The whole effect is neat as a pin.

Another of Richard's classic tricks is to lower the wheel openings and rockers. He had John lower the tops of the wheel openings 3/4 inch and add a similar amount of sheetmetal to the rocker line and quarter-panels, visually lowering the car further. John also shaved the emblems and handles, using Unkl Al's electric remotes for door/window/trunk operations.

The front end still looks like a Ford, despite the frenched headlights, hooded bumper, and new aluminum grin from Glory Grills. Likewise, the rump's exaggerated design still retains some original cues. The shaved bumper is frenched, similar to the front, with an extended pan, the fuel filler is now in the trunk, and the license is recessed into the body above the bumper. The fins and taillights are what are really cool, though. John frenched the lights 3 inches and molded the housings for a truly integrated look. The tunneled lenses are finished with perforated chrome inserts and large bullets.

John's sheetmetal handiwork is covered with a glorious coat of PPG custom-mix teal shot by Marcos. The paintjob is classic '50s, with fades and fogging giving the car texture and depth along the body lines and trim. Even the side trim is customized, with filled keyholes and new gold anodized inserts finishing off the Ford's sides in fine style.

Like many Zocchi customs, this one wears Bob Divine threads. The late-model buckets, custom door panels, full-length center console, and other surfaces are covered with white Naugahyde and button-tufted teal UltraSuede in a pattern that looks rather Ford corporate. Creature comforts include a Pioneer stereo, A/C, and Grant wheel.

Rolling on Diamondback Classic whitewalls wrapped around '56 Lincoln hubcaps with bullet centers, Zocchi's '57 takes on a distinctive, classic custom air. Whether you're a Ford fan or not, it's hard to deny the elegant design and craftsmanship. When you see it cruising, you'll surely wish that you were the one behind the wheel.

Richard ZocchiWalnut Creek, California'57 Ford Fairlane

Drivetrain: A previous owner had tossed the old Y-block motor, installing a newer Ford 351 Cleveland V-8 and C4 automatic in its place. All Richard needed to do was add some polished accessories to make it presentable and reliable.

Chassis: With the stock IFS and rearend in good working order, there was little need to totally revamp the Ford's underpinnings. The most significant change was the addition of Air Lift air springs, which allow the slick custom to cuddle down right next to the pavement. The pump and tank are mounted in the trunk.

Wheels & Tires: Richard is a traditionalist, so billet wheels are not his trip. Instead, he used steel 15-inch wheels and classic smoothie '56 Lincoln Premier hubcaps that he re-chromed and modified with center bullets. The wheels were wrapped with P195/75R15 Diamondback Classic whitewalls.

Body & Paint: Hmm, where do we start? John Aiello of Lucky 7 Customs (Antioch, CA) began by lowering the lid 3 inches, leaning the rear glass forward, and shaving the driprails while he was at it. Moving up front, he frenched and tunneled the headlights, adding custom-made trim rings. He also frenched the shaved bumper by extending the pan out over its top. Glory Grills built the custom grille using 3/8-inch round aluminum bars. Around back, John hid the fuel filler in the trunk, recessed the license plate, and extended the pan over the shaved bumper. The taillights were frenched and tunneled, with perforated chrome inserts and bullets dressing up the lenses. Lucky 7's Marcos Garcia shot the custom-mixed PPG paint, fading it around the body lines and the edges of the modified (deleted key hole, custom insert) side trim.

Interior: Tuck 'n' roll guru Bob Divine (Martinez, CA) stitched the white Naugahyde and teal UltraSuede upholstery, covering a pair of modified junkyard bucket seats, a full-length center console, and many other custom panels, including a pleated overhead console. Darker green carpet finishes off the floor. The dash remains mostly stock, though the interior now sports air conditioning, Pioneer tunes, and a Grant wheel atop the stock steering column.

The John Norton Ford and John Seaton's 1955 Chevrolet, both part of the Joe Bortz Collection

This Ford is my all time favorite custom, but then again, I may be a little biased.

My grandfather was friends with the original owner of this car, and actually did some of the lead work (and some other stuff that I can't recall.) I've actually got pictures of this car at the Hartford autorama from the '50s.

I actually had the pleasure of seeing this car once at a cruise night about 10-12 years ago. I tried talking to the owner at that time, but he didn't seem to want to believe me when I told him my relationship to the car, but I guess I can't blame him since I was only 15 at the time.

The shop my grandfather worked at actually pumped out more than a few magazine quality cars. The owner of this Ford's previous car was featured in (I believe) a 1957 issue of Rod and Custom, a chopped '36 Ford Four door. I have the issue at home, I just need to get my hands on a scanner.

Another one was recently unearthed. A channeled but un chopped Olds powered '32 five window that they used to show was found untouched in the next town over from us. The new owner called my grandfather to get some history on the car which my grandfather had painted back in 1959. That car was also featured in Rod and Custom, but my grandfather still has the issue since his name is in it.
