1966 Ford Ranger II

According to Ford press-release: “Ford Division’s Ranger II is an ultra-modern pickup truck with a custom-designed passenger compartment. Seen as a two-seater vehicle in the above photo, the Ranger II converts into a four-passenger pickup (below) at the flick of a finger. The rear portion of the cab moves 18-inches into the bed of the truck while a roof section moves up into position and two additional bucket seats fall into place. The Ranger II’s ultra-streamlined windshield is made of specially tempered plastic-type glass. It also features high-intensity headlights of rectangular design, extruded aluminum grille, and walnut flooring in the cargo bed.

The ultra-streamlined windshield of specially tempered plastic-type glass, special high-intensity headlights of rectangular design, contoured bumper, extruded aluminum grill, and a Clearwater Aqua finish give the vehicle a look at the future.

As a two-passenger pickup, the truck bed is six feet wide and eight feet long — the standard F-250 bed size. The cargo bed has walnut flooring, courtesy lights, aluminum loading rails, vinyl-covered side panels, and padded wheel housing.
