As trucks continue to become more and more popular with collectors, we’re seeing more and more pristine, low mileage examples popping up for sale and commanding big money. Most recently, that includes a 1999 Ford F-150 XL with just 3,500 miles on the clock, a 2022 Ford F-150 SVT Lightning with only 4k miles, and a Lincoln Blackwood sporting a mere 7k original miles. The latest example of this phenomenon isn’t exactly what one might consider a collector vehicle, however – this 2,300-mile 2003 Ford Ranger Edge Plus, which is currently up for grabs at Bring a Trailer.
According to the listing, the original owner purchased this 2003 Ford Ranger Edge Plus and kept it until 2021, yet barely drove it, as we can see from the odometer reading. It’s also a rarely-seen version of the former compact pickup to boot. The Ranger Edge added body-color bumpers, wheel lip moldings, anti-roll bars, and a funky textured vinyl floor to the pickup, while the “Plus” part of the equation took things a step further with cruise control, a six-disc CD changer, 16-inch alloy wheels, and bigger tires, among other quirks.
This stellar Bright Red Ranger Edge Plus is likely the nicest one on earth, though it does have a couple of blemishes here and there as we’d expect from a vehicle that’s nearly 20 years old. But for the most part, this pickup looks like it could be sitting in a Ford showroom unused, with the window sticker still attached. The same goes for the Dark Graphite cloth interior, which doesn’t look like it’s been sat in or used much at all.
This Ranger Edge Plus is powered by Ford’s 3.0L V6, which wasn’t terribly exciting with an output of 154 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque, which it sends to either the rear or all four wheels via a five-speed automatic transmission. But for those that love the old Ranger as much as we do, those sorts of details don’t matter much when you’re talking about a stellar example like this.
