PetesPonies 1983 Ford Ranger

posted in: 1983-1988 Ford Ranger 2WD | 0

This 1983 Ford Ranger is the creation of forum member PetesPonies.

It was originally brown and tan with a worn out interior, suspension, and brakes. The engine had been replaced, but the wiring was a mess.

Pete completely redid the interior, stripped the brown/tan paint, and used a 1965 Ford Tropical Turquoise and Wimbledon White paint. He also added 1953/1954 emblems and hubcaps, and the grill from a 1964 Ford F-100 that was narrowed 14-inches.

The first generation Ranger’s will always be fun to modify, and their body lines allow them to adapt to a vintage look pretty easily.

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 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.
