If you’re looking for the most special first-gen Ranger made, chances are you’ll be interested in this 1991 Ford Skyranger Convertible pickup truck. Commissioned by Ford and built by the ASC Corporation, this scalawag is one-of-17 units ever made. These babies usually fetch $15,000 or so at auction, but the example we’re covering today is listed on eBay with a “But It Now” price of $40,000. That’s a lot of money, isn’t it?
To put that figure into perspective, the full-size 2015 Ford F-150 Lariat holds a starting MSRP of $39,075 while the 2015 Ford Mustang GT Premium Convertible is $41,800. With less than 7,279 miles (11,714 km) on the odometer, a V6 gasoline engine and five-speed manual on top, this Ford Skyranger is a desirable machine, but it’s not worth 40 grand.
The fully loaded 4x4 extended cab Skyranger hasn’t been driven in the past four years, though the owner is claiming: “I took it out today from heated covered storage, and it drives as new... no problems at all.” If you really want it and 40 grand is cheap change to you, the Skyranger’s owner will also give you the original dealer brochure for this blast from the past.
