i guess im the onlyone thinking of how awsome it would be to cut that fawker up and make a race truck..

and i dont think it should be in a museum or anything... i mean its a ford ranger.. there are a **** load of ford rangers around.. being all original is no reason for it to be admired ha. but i also have the mindset that cars should be driven, abused, had fun in, and built up to however you see fit. its just metal, plastic,glass, and rubber...

if any one wants i have a bridge for sale. please if you actually believe that it sat for 21 years with 57 miles on it... WOW. simply amazing.

i wish i had an odometer that can be rolled back

and i dont think just sitting causes chome to pit

its also amazing that for a truck that sat for 21 years, some how it managed to get 3 reports on the vin report. I hate when that happens

i bought a tailgate panel that was removed from a ford ranger when new, it was stored and it was in very very good condition, but the letters had some very small pits. maybe its the moisture and the fact that it was probably never waxed?

what were the 3 reports on the vin?

if you look at the steering wheel, the seats, the carpet, the dash, the wheels with the factory, not aftermarket look alike cheapo hub caps, but the origianl hub caps and the two pictures of the underbody, the seller is either telling the truth or someone did a near 100% restoration. also the door jamb sticker is still on it, meaning we know the driver door wasnt severly damaged and repainted. judging by what i see, the truck is what it appears. i also called the seller, he said the truck runs and drives like new. my uncle mentioned one concern to me as well as my grandfather, the seals are probably shot and the wheel bearings are probably flat. meaning it would be a good idea, if its going to be driven alot to keep an eye out for leaks and change at least the front wheel bearings where most of the weight was for 21 years. my uncle said if the bearing gives, you will most likely come to a skreatching hault.

if i did buy it and paint it the factory color of my 87 ranger and drop a modified 2.9l in it, i would do a really neat factory look alike job. i would paint under the hood, door jams, ect. i would also probably just port match and polish the 2.9l engine and drop a stock style K&N air filter in and maybe a flowmaster exhaust.

i would also swap vin numbers to keep it authentic, meaning you look up the vin number description and that is the this 1987 ranger. i would also make a new door jamb sticker changing the vin number, paint code and everything that would make you believe it was incorrect. also have to change the vacuum line sticker to a 2.9l engine.

however, i think it would be good for ford, a museum or a dealer to buy it.

i like the 2.9l for the little more power it has and its a nicer looking engine. the 2.3l has a good reputation and is a good commuter engine but not alot of pep and its kind of a plain ordinary looking engine.
