Good enough
True directional rims on it too. (where one side isn't reversed from the other) You don't see those much anymore.

Cool old truck for sure. The more desirable shortbed..

Doing things wrong, until I get it right.
I wish they would still do this. There were always 2 or 3 Ranger GT's in my city, growing up. My next door neighbor had a LWB GT, and another guy had a SWB GT with a fiberglass shell (no windows) with about eight 15" speakers in the bed. were all of the 88 GT's white? where ALL the GT's white?

I have seen red in person, not sure what colors were available.

White does seem to be popular. It is too bad they were just an appearance package though and were really just a normal Ranger with a bodykit and a couple minor tweaks.

My first new vehicle was a 1986 ranger gt. Bright red with red interior. No ground effects just black trim. Biggest lemon I've ever had as far as electrical problems. Put 365000 miles on it in 5 years. 2.9 Rock's is all I can sai!!

I've personally seen them in white, red, blue, and silver. Factory paint. Watched a red short bed GT get picked up by a claw and put on a flatbed trailer to go to the crusher. They wouldn't sell it to me, and I tried for years to get it..

It was in a local man's personal junkyard of around 500+ cars/trucks, and he was one of those guys that wouldn't ever sell anything. The state ended up coming down on him with the EPA and 99% of his personal junkyard went to the crusher. Chevelle's, Nova's, Camaro's, Fairlane's, Toronado's, Galaxy's, Ranchero's, early Ford, Chevy, Studebaker and International pickups, every cool car I ever loved growing up. ALL CRUSHED because the old man was a dumbass and never wanted to sell anything, so once the state got involved, none of the cars could be sold. All had to be crushed based on a court agreement.

He could have easily been dragging them in, reselling them at a nice profit, been loaded down with cash, and kept dragging in more of them, but nooo.. Instead he lived in an old run down house with the windows knocked out and part of the roof caving in, and he still lost his entire collection.

In 86 they came in red, white and black. All with red interior. 87 and on there were multiple color choices. My buddy bought an 88 in blue on blue. He actually still has it and drives it every day.
