it should work as long as its a single din radio, ford went to a double din radio in 95(newer dash).

plug it in and see if it works.

Is there a specific reason you're wanting a factory unit ? Usually you can get a good aftermarket for a better price than the factory ones.

its my 16 year old sons 1993 ranger, the current radio doesnt work properly, so i found a 1994 radio on ebay, for $14, he has the cassette tape to ipod adapter so with that he should be set, and no one wants to steal a 1994 factory radio with a cassette player. i dont think my son even knows what a cassette tape is.

lol when I bought my truck I was 17 years old and that cassette player didn't last more than a day before a decent cd player went it

Yeah my 93 had a Pioneer cd player in it when I bought it so I just kept that in there. After looking at the 94 radio it's almost identical to the 93 so it should work just fine. That style came in a lot of other models too.
