can you imagine buying a ranger back in the mid '80's? here were the models to chose from:
ranger "s"
xlt lariat
bigfoot cruiser

those are just the body styles! there were regular cabs, supercabs, 6 foot or 7 foot beds, engine choices....

these models were factory options from ford. they were not built by another dealer such as saleen or rousch.
