    I am selling my 1993 Ford Ranger pickup for the first $800 thrown my way! The truck needs some work, but it also has numerous great and solid things about it.

    Some features of the truck...

    3.0 liter v-6, automatic transmission, long-bed model 8 foot bed, A/C, premium factory stereo, rubber bed mat

    NEW or newer items on truck... NEW transmission. There is less than 10k on the tranny. I had the entire tranmission rebuilt for $1,600 at Jim and Son's tranmission shop in Cuyahoga Falls 3 or 4 months before retiring the truck as my everyday work vehicle. Also the ENTIRE front brake assembly is new with less than 5k on it. It includes NEW rotors (not turned), NEW calipers, inner/outer bearings and ceramic pads. This was another $600 spent. I also had new leaf springs installed about a year ago as well.

    Items the truck NEEDS... The reason I quit driving the truck is that I had to put in 2 different distributors in a year and a half. Turns out the gear at the bottom of the distributor keeps wearing. The mechanic at the shop said it needed a new cam shaft. The repair cost at a shop for that is around a thousand bucks. I know nothing about car repairs nor does any of my family. Anyone with engine knowledge would be able to repair this at a fraction of that cost. I unfortunately cannot repair that at a fraction. This is why I am be-grudgingly selling it! Also, the rear brakes need replaced.

    The truck has sat in my driveway since last June, when I retired it as my everyday driver. I have used it here and there for trips up to Home Depot since, but has pretty much just sat. These 2 problems are the only repairs the truck needs, other than normal maintenance issues from sitting for 10 months.

    The truck has 163k miles on it, but like I said earlier maybe 6k or 8k on the tranny. There is no rust on the vehicle, except for a few areas where there were rock chips or where the ladder rack is connected. In other words, there is no rot, or holes, just minor surface area rust in a couple small places. The truck has never been wrecked, nor are there any dents, maybe just a couple dings. There are no oil leaks either. The engine does not smoke and will pass e-check. The frame is solid as can be. All hoses, belts, suspesion parts, and engine peripherals are in perfect working order. The A/C even works!

    This is a nice truck that deserves to still be driven. My mother bought this new, and I bought it from her. I hate to get rid of it, but since I am not an engine guy, I would have to pay full mechanic price to get it repaired. I have held on to it because it was too good to get rid of. But it taking up space in my driveway and I am tired of driving around it! I also discovered I cannot just add this truck to my insurance if I were to fix it. I have a commercial policy and would have to open up a NEW policy just to drive it! It is not worth it to me to own 2 vehicles, so hence, it must go.

    The truck does run, but it is not driveable right now. The rear brakes need fixed first and foremost. This truck would be a perfect second vehicle for towing your boat or hauling stuff. If anyone knows how to repair engines, this truck is a steal, when you consider the condition of everything else, and the money that was recently put into it. I am taking a major loss on this, but it has to go.

    The first 800 bucks will take it. I have received offers for just the tranny from 400 to 600 bucks already. I do not want to part this truck out. It is too good to just scrap. Anyone with the ability to do moderate repairs, will have a nice truck for a very long time.

    I live right on the Akron/Tallmadge border near Chapel Hill Mall. I will answer all questions.


    Thanks for your interest.

    I got in the 20s on the highway. I got less than most people would because I had a 28' and 16' ladder on it. I would venture to say a solid 25 is probable without the areodynamic blocks the ladders caused.

    after fixing the two problems would you feel safe towing a 1300lb boat 2 hours to the river and back? i've had two rangers in the past and got lucky with both.could i get away with replacing the dist. again?

    for anyone that is leary of buying this truck, rangers are def. made to last. this comes from seeing one guy own one through four years of highschool, 4 years college parties, an a few more hanging out at the bar...It has got some dents and dings, but Is def. made to last.
