1999 Ford Ranger Manual With Just 14K Miles Up For Auction

Now that the Ford Ranger has been reborn as a mid-size pickup, replaced in the compact segment by the Ford Maverick, we’re beginning to see extremely nice, low-mile, prior-gen models sell for reasonable money at auction. Most recently, that includes this 2003 Edge Plus with just 2k original miles, as well as this 2001 XLT Flareside with 4k miles. Now, yet another gem of a last-gen pickup has surfaced for sale – this amazing 1999 Ford Ranger with 14k original miles that’s up for grabs at Bring a Trailer.

This Bright Red beauty was originally registered in Massachusetts, but sat around unused for years before it was acquired by the selling dealer last year. Regardless, it still looks good as new with flawless body and paintwork, along with a few add ons such as front and rear mud flaps, a Ford-branded drop-in bedliner, and a bug deflector. The compact pickup rolls on its original 15-inch wheels, which are wrapped with 225/70 General Altimax RT45 tires.

The interior of this 1999 Ford Ranger is equally nice, finished in gray with a vinyl a 60/40 split-bench seat, manual windows, aftermarket cupholders, and, well, not much else – this was an affordable, basic truck, of course. The aftermarket stereo is missing its face, and there’s a tear in the upholstery, but this cabin is otherwise pretty much factory fresh.

Mechanically speaking, this Ranger is powered by the naturally-aspirated Ford 2.5L I-4, which was factory rated to produce a modest 117 horsepower and 149 pound-feet of torque, which flows to the rear wheels via a five-speed manual transmission. The seller has completed a good amount of maintenance over the past few months too, replacing a number of components and getting the pickup roadworthy. There is some surface rust underneath – to be expected for a truck that lived up north – but otherwise, this Ranger is a super nice find that could sell for a reasonable price, too.
