Might be $500 worth of parts.... could build something out of it. No clue on the old Mazda (non-Ford) engines. Drop a 3.0 Vulcan in it, and it might be light enough to scream......

Back to my original question. Is this a Ranger in Mazda skin?

No. The Courier and B-Series were the same truck, and the '94 and up Ranger and B-series were the same truck, but the '83-93 Ranger and B-Series were completely different.

Never saw one with a cat-front exhaust before.

Nice truck, especially for the price.

I’m passing if it’s not interchangeable with Ranger. Too much half-finished junk in the junk pile now & got busy at work on some year-end property needs. I’ll be happy with the 87 Rick-storation and Rick’s Ranger Rig for now (& the Lincolns, & the House, & the girlfriend honey-dos...)

Sir! Sir! Surrender that supercharged Toyota immediately! We need your parts to build more RBVs!

I’m lost.... what does it have?


The guy driving it looked genuinely confused as to why I had my camera out. Joke is on you, buddy. I know what that soccer mom special has under the hood...

Damn 😤, I thought I might be the first...

But I’ll bet my budget is a little smaller (and I never planned on the Lambo doors, but....🤔)....

I don’t know what scissor doors are, but if they’re cheaper than stock, Craigslist or pull-a-part, yes (although the stick holding up his door is on my wish list)
