Default Re: How much is this Ranger worth...

i paid $400 for my 88 xlt with a rebuilt motor and the interior was in good shape, just need tlc. id say around 800 also. besides isnt it 25yrs after production before vehicles are considered collectables? (mine wasnt running when i bought it though, just needed a fuel pump)

I think you also need to look at "what else can I get for $1,500" you can snag a 98 or better xl 2.5 5spd ranger for that price. Its a $500 truck plain and simple. I dont care if it had a crate motor in it. The thing is old and outdated. Just tell the guy, my offer is $500, I can buy something 10+ years newer for this price!

----------

besides, you said all stock. original shocks, coils are worn out, ball joints/wheel bearings worn out, tie rod ends worn out, 24yr old diff fluid...yuk! control arm bushings will prolly need replacing, the list goes on. That kinda truck you buy for $500 and drive it into the ground then scrap it. Its just not worth the coin to put into it. You'll end up with a 24yr old truck that cost you 2,500 by the time your done socking parts into it. Look around for a newer guy

No more than 800...1000 at the most. Don't pay 1500 though.
