Im new did i get a good deal???

i just picked up a 94 short bed short cab 3.0 5 speed 2wd ranger with virtually no rust 130000 miles no dents good tires and nice interior for 300 bucks. only problem is someone broke 3 plugs off in the heads. i just got the truck yesterday and tonight i have the motor down to the block. got the broken plugs out and almost everythings about to go back together. the motor is so clean inside you can eat off of it. these pics are BEFORE i buffed out the paint. it sat under a tree for a few months. tell me what u think

That's a pretty good deal in my book. Just give it some work and you'll have a great daily driver

I used a 10" random orbital buffer and Turtle Wax liquid polish to restore the paint on my truck. Took me about 2 weekends to do it.

I paid $2000 for my 98 xlt 2.5. I bought it from a college professor that only used it to haul fire wood for his wood stove. Bed is beat up but the insides look brand new. I like it but would have gladly paid less for it.
