    Gotta tell ya that looks pretty damned good to me for a truck.

    What exactly is shot on it?

    Only thing I can see is some rust on the hood and a little on the rear wheel well.

    Spart about the only thing that isn't rusted bad is the right fender. I'll try to get some better pics over the weekend. We are on the starting end of 8 - 12 inches of white stuff right now so it's gonna be a day or 2.

    Looks like a Ranger. Is the grille good? Also looks like a 73-79 style bed on it in the picture.

    Yup it's a Ranger with a dent bed. The door posts are intact but the roof is rusted above the windshield. He wants a grand for it which may be a bit high but normal for this area. It was there 4 hours and had 3 guys looking for parts. Pics are gonna wait a bit since 8 - 12" turned into 2 feet.

    i missed the later model bed--duh--- the trim lines matched really well--i have a 72 bed for ya--say the word & line up some truck driver with some space and it's yours--worry about the pay later--maybe find me some small goodies i need--seriously--my bed is in really good shape--it's still mounted so it would take me some time to get it ready to ride

    the "power assist" must have came from a 73-76, real junk systyem. The good thing is you can 86 it for manual by just getting rid of it and buying a drag link. Interesting they even had the 69 bed trim on to match the cab and used the 69 Ranger emblem on the bed. Good job of disguising a dentside bed. If that bed is bolted through the factory holes into the pickup frame it is a highboy bed and maybe worth something as such. 73-76 highboys had narrower frames than the rest of the pickups in those years.
    A couple years ago there were bumpsides everywhere but they have crushed the shit out of them around here, not many parts trucks left with any decent tin, either rusty or cowboyed out.
    I had a chance to pick up a 79 with a non-running 400 4 speed for $200. I still have the guys number, I should see if he has it yet.
