It wouldn't surprise me. I used to drive nothing but air-cooled VW buses. They went for a few hundred bucks. Now buses I sold for that kind of money in the 1990s are going for close to 200,000! I always seem to sell stuff before the market goes crazy...

Value of anything is real hard to see rationally. Mark's '55 Ranger is believed to be the last one produced, of 50 total going back to 1950. It's unbelievably more rare than any "cookie cutter" '55-'57 Chevy or SS396, of which tens of thousands were produced, and seem to bring similar money every time one rolls across an auction block. Or, is it worth half as much as one of the M-H woodies from Nick Alexander's collection or others? Hard to figure. I know Mark and have absolute confidence that he's redone the Ranger to as strict a level of originality as humanly possible. Stu

The one thing i never understand is, why would you put such a high priced vehicle on craigslist? Is there really anybody with that kind of money looking on craigslist?

Cheap
Someone does not like ebay

Seems like it might sell better if it was painted all one color. Cool truck, but slightly out of my price range...

Stu, do you know why he isn't finishing it before sale? Is it "done" except for a repaint of the front fenders? I don't doubt it is worth what he's asking, or close to it, in any case.

PS -- Kudus to Chris for not posting it as a Mormon this time...

I agree with Scott. Spend a few more grand on a complete paint job and then sell it, but then maybe he's leaving it for the buy to paint their "own" color.

I don't know. Mark is a member here as "thechassisman" so may see this and respond. Stu

IF it was a 56 I'd own it! I would be taking a second mortgage out on my house if need be.

Kevin - Rangers were listed through 1956, but from his research Mark is of the view that no '56s actually were built. No real pictures have been found, only artists renderings. Hopefully Chuck can add to this, but to my understanding by far most were built in 1950. Something like 35 iirc. The numbers dropped off rapidly because of the expense to build them, entailing shipping to/from three different locations. Second, to my understanding, Siebert failed to include the cost of the repaint after addition of the side windows, etc. And interestingly, my 51 started life as a Sheridan Blue Panel truck but ended up a Silvertone Gray Ranger. Why a complete outer color change I have no idea. The interior, firewall, etc, of mine is still dark blue. Why not just respray the upper side panels? Add to these factors the availability of war surplus Power Wagon Carry Alls and cheaper Jeep wagons. Stu

Stu, the color change may have been for corporate or Service (Navy? AF?) sale?
