In the year 1989, Imetal S.A. a company that was owned by Massey Ferguson of Argentina, decides to re-launch a model that has made history in our country, the Rastrojero, but under the Ranquel brand. Accompanying this decision, also produces the Frontal under the same brand, something that was justly used to this model was the brand changes, since the same model was marketed in Argentina under 4 different brands, Borgward, Rastrojero, IKA and this one Ranquel For this release there was an important change, to offer two models, the traditional with the Indenor engine, and the 3.6T that mounted a Perkins PF6-305. It did not have much diffusion thanks to the reality of the moment, a galloping inflation, an almost null external market, a devastated internal market, and the threat of what was coming, the opening of imports. In spite of that, there are still quite a few survivors thanks to the quality that this product always had, something limited in front of its main competitor, the F-350 and a little smaller than the Mercedes Benz L608D, but enduring like few others! It should be noted that the instrument board is composed of needle indicators such as speedometer with total and partial odometer; thermometer cooling water temperature, lubrication oil pressure gauge; fuel level indicator, quartz watch. Key lights for position lights; windshield wipers and washer. Lights warning of preheating of start, load of the alternator, parking brake, beacons, high light and turning lights.
