This Ranger would need only a little bit of work to get it ready for the road.  I know for sure that some of the gaskets need to be replaced, maybe even some lines, and the carburetor most likely needs to be rebuilt, but other than that the engine itself turns free.  Tires will also need to be replaced.  It's been in storage for a little over a decade but I do remember a time when this car was out on the road.  The car has been in the family for 30+ years (Grandfather, Dad, myself) and has been in a storage building for the later half of that time.  This used to go to several car shows and Edsel meets back in the day.

We do have the keys to the car.  The interior is also very nice, with original covering, plus it has the plastic seat protectors on it that you could put on back in the day.  We have the title in hand.

While it wouldn't take much to get road ready, I would not say this is a "buy it and drive it home" car.  For your safety, I would highly suggest flat-bedding it back to your home/garage and fully lubricating it and changing the fluids before actually driving it for any long period.
