Hopefully Mark will come along and tell us more about this truck. It's cool.
I noticed the front diff is on the passenger side in this one. Stu, isn't yours on the other side?
As far as sale value, since it is the last one built that is still living, wouldn't it be better to have a generator and oil bath filter on it? Is that an original carb? For something like this I don't know if that would impact value on it or not. It's so far beyond my price range that it doesn't really matter. It would be very cool to own, although I would say once completed it needs to be in a museum. I would sure want to drive it though.

Hey, any pictures of the interior?

Joe - you've looked at the pictures closer than I have I guess. Sure, it should have generator, oil bath, and maybe other things. Not sure why he'd have done mods unless he's been driving it and figured to include original pieces with the sale.

His front diff is on the passenger side because the transfer case on half tons sends its driveshaft forward on that side. Half tons (Model LD7-4) and early F-2/3s (R3-4) have single speed transfer cases. Later trucks like my project truck have a two speed transfer case that is shared with the big trucks. Mine is Model R32-4, or more correctly 6R32-4 because it's the 215 engine. The driveshaft on these goes forward on the drivers side. Stu

I just love it. IF I could ever somehow afford it I would paint it (body off and stripped) what ever color it left the factory with. Prolly keep the 12 Volt alt though.
Than It would be my Alaska grocery getter year round. If I could afford to buy it
than I could afford to drive it everyday and keep it in pristine condition
in my fully equipped and staffed restoration shop for all the old classics I would own. But this one would get driven for sure.
Why have one that ya don't drive? Makes no sense to me. I have never had any want for a trailer queen.

Well when you put it that way......very well said. If I could afford a $130000 vehicle I could afford to drive it. Now I need to run out and get a lottery ticket, but my daily driver won't start....stupid newer vehicles.

Iʻd drive it too, I like the stance and body design.

Ya most everything newer than an 85. Computerized EFI just sucks to work
on and keep running when yer head was born in a carburetor.

Think long and hard about that.


My Mom was carberated.

maybe the reason he's offering it unpainted is because he "hit the wall" on this particular truck and just needed it gone ! it happens to the best of us

I don't know if that's the reason, but I could sure understand it. Mark is like the rest of us with more than one project that he's facing. Stu

PS -- Kudus to Chris for not posting it as a Mormon this time...
Hey guys, girls, I had the 55 Ranger for sale unfinished, due to med bills, and disabiity. My Daughters Rare cancer came back in a more rare malignant form in Sept last year, her condition is under control now. I haven't been able to do what was needed these last couple years to finish the Ranger, I have a degen disc disease, severe bilateral stenosis, that slows me down, and for 2 years, a completely torn, retracted right rotator cuff. Was going for the repair surgery in March this year, and I had a stroke, and lost the use of my right arm that laid me up for a while, but got my shoulder re attached this Aug 15th, feels real good now, and 4 more weeks of therapy should get me back in shape to get this truck finished soon. Not giving it up...Mark

Man alive, Mark. You've had a year of it, and hope you and your daughter are on the mend to stay. Good talking to you on the phone a while back. Stu
