Default My 1988 2.3L Turbo Ranger has to go... $1850

Not trying to spam or anything, just thought you guys might think this is interesting.... In waterford MI



Up for sale is my 1988 SVO Turbo Ranger. It has been my daily driver for over one year now and has been very reliable and an absolute blast to drive! Good in the winter too with weight in the bed. It is also very clean for an '88! It will run a 15.0 in the 1/4 IF you can get traction. I had 17" mustang wheels and tires on it, which really helped as far as traction goes. . .. I have stock wheels on it now. The truck is just fine as is and I would trust it to go anywhere, but needs some minor TLC that I simply no longer have time for. I have a ton of time and over $3000 in the truck and will be very sad to see it go, but it needs some TLC that I no longer have time for. I also have a box of random parts that will come with the truck. I am asking $1850 cash. No trades please. I have MUCH more money in it than what I am willing to let it go for and it is WELL worth it. Call or text DJ anytime (248) 821-1189
