'57 Ford Ranchero "Trendero" Rebuild


Pictures from: Dick "Fuzzy" Fuerholzer

  These pics are taken of the "Trendero" a '57 Ford Ranchero built by Trend Automotive in '61 in Lyons, IL. It went through three color changes from Candy Flake, to Yellow Pearl ('62 Car Craft Magazine) to last Candy Flake. It was built by Dave Puhl and John Malik, last shown at the New York Worlds Fair in '65 after that they closed the shop and it disappeared. I found it in Sept '04 in Florida, these are pics of it as it sits today. We are making plans to try to put it in the Darryl Starbird Rod and Custom Hall of Fame. The Trendero is sitting in Mark Morarity’s shop in Mounds, Mn. He is getting ready to restore it back to original. It will be in Yellow Pearl when it comes back, the original of Dave Puhl.   Dick “Fuzzy” Fuerholzer.

Thank you Fuzzy for these pictures.  Keep us informed of the progress.
