A quick Google search would have yielded you results.....

1987 was the first year for the Ranger and only two were made. Both were competition models designated 87-0019RT and 87-0020RT. They were equipped with a race-prepped 4-cylinder motor.

In 1988 Saleen sold 27 rangers, three of which were competition models. The other 24 were sold to private owners. All 24 were white except for one blue model. They came with a 2.9L V6 and 5-speed transmission. They were regular cab long beds. The competition models were designated 88-0019RT, 88-0020RT, and 88-0021RT.

1989 was the third year for the Saleen Ranger. Only three were produced and all were competition models designated 89-0019RT, 89-0020RT, and 89-0021RT.

Two Saleen Rangers were produced in 1990, both being competition models designated 90-0019RT and 90-0020RT.

In 1991, Saleen produced only one Saleen Ranger and it was a competition model designated 91-0019RT.

1992 was the last year for the Saleen Ranger. Only one was produced, NOT a competition model. It looks like Michael Saleen is the owner of this truck designated 92-0001ST.

I guess the only years Saleen produced a non-competition model Ranger was 24 in 1988 and only one in 1992 (good luck getting that one). Unfortunately, the Saleen book doesn't give much information about these trucks.

Are you sure you have a real Saleen model ranger. Based on there only being 27 1988 Saleen rangers ever made, it is more likely someone stuck Saleen stickers on a normal Ranger. Could be, just playing the probabilities.

OK.......No need for arguments...to answer the question if I am sure that I have a real Saleen Ranger ...Yes I am sure it is 100% correct with all the saleen options and badges. In fact some research I found was that there were 24 sport trucks sold BUT then I have heard that they were numbered till number 27 thus the first 3 being race trucks only. I also ave heard that they started the numbers at double digits such as #10 to #27 this would mean that only 18 were really built....it is believed that the first truck was a give away truck and was #10......I saw a Craig List ad for a 1988 Ford saleen ranger so I called it as it was local.....I asked the owner how long he had it?...he replied since 1988 and that he won it in a raffle....when I saw the truck it was the #10 truck with decals and emblems from Saleen and numbered......The truck is in great shape and I will post pictures soon.....Still trying to find if any others exist.

Awesome. Sounds like an original and actual Saleen to me.
