Description for Ford Ranger 1986

Farm/Ranch truck most of its life. Starts and runs remarkably well, even in coldest weather. New battery last year. Serviced regularly since I've had it. Uses no oil, but the 4 cylinder/5 speed is under-powered for my liking. Mileage may not be accurate, as the odometer is only a 5 digit. Could have174k or 274k for all I know.

Now the squawks: interior door panel ripped, dash cracked. Small rust hole in floorboard by driver door, otherwise mostly rust-free. 4 wheel drive works well, but doesn't shift into low range (linkage?), just starts to contact gears when the shifter movement distance runs out. Someone installed a fancy radio, but never finished the hookup. Has a wheel shimmy that starts around 70 mph. Turn signal auto return doesn't work, so you have to manually turn off the blinker. No spare tire.

I use the truck as a daily driver for local runs, and have had no complaints. I just have too many vehicles.
