New old Ranger owner
1 Attachment(s)

Just purchased a 98 Ranger. Odometer is frozen at 131,000 miles but hey....

Fiberglass stepside, she's in great shape. Very quick.

Sad story on how I obtained her, at least for the previous owner. :D

The battery cables are just frayed ends and the battery isn't even clamped down so, going for new cables tomorrow. If anyone has any suggestions about that clump of wires I'm going to have to pry into, I would appreciate any assistance.

Re: New old Ranger owner
Thanks for the welcome. I guess I should add that I'm working on a 64 Galaxie 500, building one out of two cars. One is straight up, the other is the slanted roof version. I'm using the body and frame from one, transmission from the other, engines from make one, which are 390's. Front end now in progress. Long, slow progress.
