Icon14 '88 Ranger GT....Al.

-everyone knows my truck, for the most part. its been a good truck, as i have drove it daily since i bought it and it still turns heads where ever I go, but im getting older now, so running around in a "hotrod" truck is kind strange(at least how i feel when i see guys older than me in one of such manner). but anyway, my oldest son is not interested it it, and its still 10 years before my younger son can drive, and i think i'd like to move up to something newer, so i wont need to be eorking on something all the time(within reason) and not "hotrodding" it. anyway i've owned the truck since 2003. the guy who owned it before me lived in the next town over and drove it as long as i can remember, and there was one other owner before him, to the best of my knowledge. i have my 2 low mileage GTs so if i want to drive one, i've got 2 more of them in good shape to drive if need be. when i bought it it had 41,00 or 141,000 miles on it, depending upon who you believe. it now shows either 260,000 or 360,000 again depending....it is a 2.9 v6, 5sp. and here is a list of things done on it....

-has 7.5 r/g with a 3:73 ratio
-front end upgraded to '95/ with the larger rotors, bolt on dual piston calipers..
-just put new rotors/pads on it in November '09
-energy suspension bushings in all front and rear swaybars, radius arms and axles.
-catalytic converter removed, 2 1/4" ehaust system with steel chambered straight flow muffler and original tip(sounds like a small V8)
-white AFS Bullet replica wheels with ford blue oval centers
-new Capital Sport UHP 245/45/17 tires in November '09
-a/c system entirely removed as compressor locked up...all brackets, core, condensor, compressor gone....
-a/c evap box and heater box replaced with non a/c one, and the correct control head inside.
-crane cams hi-8 ignition energy system..
-ford motorsports plug wires
-has all GT the paraphernalia inside and out.
-new waterpump in feb '09
-trans rebuilt in 2003 with new bearings, seals...
-new clutch and PP then also...
-red inside with sport buckets, lumbar and thigh support....
-Grant GT 3 spoke steering wheel in '09
-upgraded fog lamps in september '09 as one of originals got broken from gravel from car in front of me.
-grill cracked from same, but have a black one from my parts i will include...
-fan blade removed and had "black magic" electric fan, but thermostatic module quit working, so removed it in 2006. has no fan of any kind. even in Alabama summers will not overheat unless you are stopped at idle for a long period.
-new windshield in 2004
-new rear slider in 2004
-missing drivers side half of carpet. removed when old windshield leaked into cab and was keeping carpet wet. removed it to keep it dry and havent bought new one to put back in...
-front and rear glass tinted 2004
-has no rust of any kind except surface where paint is thin or flaked.
-put new taillight housings on in 2008. have new front parking and sidemarkers also, but not installed....
-engine blows some oil since 2006 when the O.E. catalytic converters came apart while driving home from work one day. engine still runs flawless with that even. would go anywhere in it....
-previous owner backed into a tractor with right rear in 2000, me and a friend at a body shop beat the 1/4 panel out and has been that way since. can see in photos.
-white face guages
-prolly much more i havent thought of, but will add if i do. GREAT driver or easy restore. I am asking $3,995. no trades. have an offer, will listen, no guarantees though. 256-223-9809...thanks...
