Default New guy from BC Canada

Hey there, my names David, im 16 years old, Im a heavy duty mechanic apprentice and I restore cars in my spare time.

I just bought a 1993 Ford Ranger XLT. Its got the 3.5l with the automatic and 4wd. Starts and runs fine, drives like new, and only has 403,000 km on it
No rust, cost my dad $200 (Now I owe him some money :P)

It needs a drivers door latch. The door was cracked around that area, so the P/O (family friend) welded it. Only thing, it it melted the plastic internals and now it doesnt work

And it has rear ended someone, being moslty made of metal the only damage is the grill and the drivers side indicator lens, and a couple dents in the hood.

The valve covers appeared to seep oil, upon closer inspection I noticed they were a bit rusty and probably have some pinholes. And it ticks on startup, the tappets need adjusting. The electric transfer case doesnt work, the guy I got it from gave me a manual transfer case to put in it. Needs new tires too, the way Ford designed the front end the insides of the tires seem to wear faster.

But hey, after so many km's its still goin strong, nothing a few weekends wont fix.

Im also restoring a 1972 Ford Cortina, its got a 2.0 pinto with a 4 speed. Theres only like, 17 of them Left in north america, so thats pretty cool.

Heres some pics for your troubles:




Cheers!

That looks like a great truck to restore and enjoy. We carry a lot of repair parts for Ford Rangers if you need brakes or headlights or anything that might be worn out and needs to be replaced.

I plan to just get it roadworthy for my first vehicle. Needs a new grill and an indicator. Im going to fix the door then throw a stereo at it. Then im not in such a rush to get my Cortina roadworthy, that would have been my first car. Truck needs tires. Then once thats done and I have money I want to do a mild lift with some 33" tires. Its going to be a bush truck, throw the dirtbikes in the back and go bikin, stuff like that
