Do any of you think old Rangers will ever be collectible? My ugly ol' '86 is really tired, but oddly enough, has no rust anywhere, and zero dents in the cab. I've though about refurbishing it some day, instead of selling it for $500 if I'm lucky. Do you foresee anyone actually collecting these little buggers?
'72 F-250 Camper Special
"I'm a man. I can change.... If I have too... I guess...."
the only ranger that i can see collectible is the vary rare ranger Gt made in 89. it had a 2.9 5 speed manual standered, alloy wheels, Performance tires, color match bumper, sport suspention, and a other few nics. if you find one in good factory condition then it should be worht something. But alot of people i know that had them droped a 302 in them and did costom work which drops the value depending.

I im new to the site & I've have a 1989 Ranger GT
and it is a fun to drive .
it was made 88-89 and less made in 89
it's got P/W P/L CC A/C POSI 3:73 BIGGER BUSCHING IN THE FRONT
FRONT & REAR SWAY BARS lowerd & MORE
MORE TO COME
Give an '83 Ranger ten more years, keep it in good condition, low mileage, and have a loaded model, and you might have something semi-valuable. Otherwise, it's just going to be like your Grandma's '62 Falcon 4-Dr., good to drive, but not really highly sought after. Go buy a new 2006 Ranger, loaded, haul it to your house, and put it in the garage for 30 years (don't drive it at all!!!) and you might have something worth some money.
Im going to agree with Ken here. These trucks just arent old enough to be considered collectors items. Im sure the Ranger GTs will become more desirble as time goes on, so Im stocking up now. Not to sell and profit, just to preserve and appreciate.
-i hope gts become a little more valuable, other wise me and longbedgts are up the creek. i'm slightly ahead of him, but i started before he did. they are a little more desirable because there we not as many with that pkg as your garden variety rangers...they are hard to find, trust me, and even harder to get people to sell them to you....don't believe me??? check out my want ad in classifieds....
