Custom Ford Ranger Is One Arresting Auction Find
Bad boys, bad boys, whatcha’ gonna do? Probably check out this sweet ride at auction, Sept. 27-29.
The boys in blue have a history of driving some pretty cool Fords. From the latest Ford Explorer to F-150’s, law enforcement have relied on rides that can catch the bad guy, handle all matter of terrain, and be menacing enough to strike fear at the mere sight of those blue and reds in the rear view mirror. Um, or so we’re guessing. Finding a retired paddy wagon is pretty rare, but this clean custom early 1990s Ford Ranger offered by Barrett-Jackson is definitely a unique and awesome find.
Now, before we get too excited, we have to point out that this vehicle cannot be driven as is. It’s against the law to drive this truck on any public roads until all police decals, lights, and badging are removed or covered up. So, no playing cops and robbers. Noted.
The 1991 Ford Ranger was custom built for special events, and looks especially badass in black in white. It has a 145 horsepower producing 4.0-liter V6 engine with a 4-speed automatic transmission, an engine especially superior in acceleration.
The interior is gray on gray, and in very impressive shape. The radio and equipment is still intact, and, frankly, a little intimidating.
The truck bed has a hard tonneau cover, and like the rest of the pickup is in mint condition.
The cherry top cruiser also comes with a police light bar, side spotlights, front mirror strobe light, rear window strobe light, PA system, and police pursuit flashing lights and siren. The police decals and custom paint make this already tough truck even more intimidating. While it’s a great ride for Johnny Law, we’ll happily take it, blast a little Beastie Boys “Sabotage” and give Walker, Texas Ranger a ride for his money.
If you’re interested in this unique Ranger, check it out at Barrett-Jackson. Take ’em away, boys.
