1958 Ford Ranchero owned George Garcia of Bellflower, California. George has owned the car since 1988. In 2008, the Ranchero was shown at the Ink & Iron, by then hid had been fitted with a 1957 DeSoto grille. After that, it was brought to Brad Masterson at Masterson Kustom Automobiles in Lynwood for a 3-inch roof chop. Brad did also create a rounded pan for the back bumper and shave off the door handles, trim and emblems. George's intention with the Ranchero was to build a tribute to Richard Lee Tiago's 1957 Ford Ranchero, according to him the best custom Ranchero ever built.[1]
