A guy I work with is selling, dare I even use the word, a 1984 or 1985 2wd Ford Ranger. Its got a carbed 2.3L. He just rebuilt the top end. Had the head rebuilt and very mildly worked and also put a very close to stock roller cam setup in it. The body is pretty straight, but needs paint something bad. I really don't care about the paint. The interior is shot, but complete. The tranny (5sp) and rear are in good shape, as is the clutch. He only wants $600 for it. I'm thinking a gas getter daily driver to and from work. Think its worth it?

Go for it, not too bad for a little truck, rode in one on a 800 mile trip once and it did ok except for passing on the interstate
