Not many in that good shape out there any more.
Dash has a cover so probably cracked- needs Rustoleum! 😝

Toonces drives a Ranger . . . . just not very well.
It is a nice looking truck.

I'd like to see what it looks like underneath; the history report shows it being in New Jersey since at least 1995.

And that the transmission is healthy (A4LD- nuf said), and the same with the engine coolant system (early 2.9- heads).

It also had a an accident in 2019, with "moderate front end damage reported as disabling, towed". That's probably when it was repainted; the box front panel and door jambs show the repaint is a little lighter shade than the original, and some overspray on the windshield trim are the tells.

Otherwise, looks like a fairly honest 37-year old truck, and I guess the asking price is what the market is these days.

As clean as that interior is, probably not. It's likely had that dash cover since it was almost new.

Red Ranger... Rustoleum... Hey @Rick W I think I found your missing brother.

It’s a scam. I’m from NJ and everything rattles, creeks, and is failing, & I barely run…
