did the full size mod

so my rangers frame was cracked and i needed a replacement and was driving through town and saw this at a local garage. so i sold the ranger to a friend for $750.


i got it for 900 it has a new starter, clutch, alt exauste from ypipe back, and the transmissions been rebuilt. it needs some minor work i got to patch the floor and put new cab bushings in it.so far i like it but my daughter has been asking me where my ranger is and refuses to ride in it.

My 351M in my 77 gets 7 MPG.

I'm guessing it's a 4 speed?

Seriously. It makes me sad seeing all the new trucks coming out, getting really good mpg's while still being around the 400hp range or at least close to it. :-(
