1984 Ford Ranger 2WD

September 2013 –

It’s not to often you find a nice original looking Ranger from the early 80’s. The Ranger shown here showed up recently in the Akron / Canton Ohio Craigslist ads for $3,750..

(Owner claims the 37,053 miles is original)

So, the Ranger isn’t actually original. It was found in a barn and fixed up. Here is the Craigslist description:


This is a restored 84 Ford Ranger pick-up truck with extremely low miles in incredible condition. You have to see it. I got it from my 85 year old neighbor. He kept it in a barn and after I cleaned it up and saw what the interior looked like I decided to make it a project. New radial T/A tires, shocks, fuel pump, carburetor, steering stabilizer. I cut out what little rust damage there was and welded in new metal. I flipped the bed over, sand blasted and shot it all with epoxy primer then 395-A which is a rustproofing paint. New paint job. I didn’t do much under the hood. I figure the next owner can play with that. It seems to run great and drives nice. I haven’t driven it far, just up and down my road. I’ve taken a lot of pictures.


All the same, it still makes a nice addition to the information and photos stored away here at The Ranger Station.

Hope you enjoyed looking at it.

As a Ford Ranger enthusiast who enjoys modifying my Ford Rangers for off-road use, I quickly discovered that there wasn’t any websites dedicated to the subject. So in 1999, I created TheRangerStation.com. What started as my own personal desire to help other Ford Ranger owners, has grown into a wealth of online information from numerous contributors. 20-years later, my commitment to the Ford Ranger, and the Ford Ranger community, is as strong as ever.
