Default Any productions numbers for GT, Splash, Thunderbolt, Tremor models?

If I can ever find one or see one come up that has what I want I'd like to get one of the 80's Ford Ranger GT's, a Splash, Thunderbolt, or Tremor. I always wanted an extra cab Canary Yellow Splash 4.0 automatic. Every once and awhile I'll see a Splash up for sale but it's usually a 5-Speed and Regular cab. I'm guessing they didn't make many extended cab Splash models. I'm sure the Canary Yellow was a low production #. I've never seen one of the 80's GT's for sale. I assume most have been crushed along with the Splash's. I saw 2 Splash 4.0's in the junkyard the other day that looked like they drove in there all complete. Someone that worked there took the bed off of the Canary Yellow one and put it on a later Ranger with 3 different mismatched wheels, before that the whole truck was all there. I've never seen a Thunderbolt or Tremor for sale. Is there any production numbers available anywhere?

The GT is no big deal and is just trim.
The Thunderbolt is a ghetto version of a 4.0 Ranger has a 4.0 with 10-20 HP more than a regular 4.0.
Tremor is just a Ranger with a big radio in it.
The Splash was a Ranger that Ford was trying the teenage market...didn't sell well at all. Not too many adults even gave the Splash a second thought.

Don't waste your money on these Ford failures.
