1993 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer With 56K Miles Up For Auction

In recent months, we’ve seen quite a few first-generation Ford Explorer models hit the auction block, a list that includes nice stock examples like a 1994 Eddie Bauer and a 1994 Sport model, as well as some unique customs such as a ’94 with styling reminiscent of the family truckster from the movie National Lampoon’s Vacation and a 1993 Explorer Jurassic Park movie replica. Now, we have yet another early model to bid on – this extremely nice, low-mile 1993 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer that’s currently up for auction at Bring a Trailer.

This 1993 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer has lived its entire life in California, and today, has just 56k miles showing on the odometer – a low total for a vehicle of this vintage, without a doubt. That’s also reflected in its exterior condition, which remains in great shape with the factory white paint and Mocha lower body cladding, save for a few dents here and there. The SUV rolls on its original 15-inch wheels as well, which are now wrapped with 235/75 Goodyear Wrangler RT/S tires.

The same goes for the luxurious beige leather-appointed interior, which is in fantastic shape and is loaded with amenities including a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, air conditioning, a factory cassette stereo, a retractable rear cargo cover, and power-operated windows, door locks, and mirrors – par for the course for this luxurious trim.

This Explorer is powered by Ford’s naturally-aspirated 4.0L V6, which in this guise was factory-rated to produce 160 horsepower and 220 pound-feet of torque, which flows to the rear wheels via a four-speed automatic transmission. Even the undercarriage of this SUV is in rather clean condition with no corrosion to be found – as one might expect from a California car – but that only adds to the appeal we imagine it will provide shoppers on the auction block over the coming days.

    How do you get a vehicle on an auction like the one for the ford explorer ?

    I have a 2000 mercury grand Marquis with 35km yes thirty five kilometres Essentially brand new Currently listed on auto trader but I think an auction may be a better way to go

    Ford needs to look at this version of the Explorer and bring it back, which is a body-on-frame SUV. A modern version would be a direct competitor to the Toyota 4Runner, and the new Land Cruiser. With the right engine, transmission, feature set, and pricing, it would sell like hotcakes! The Bronco should stay as the outdoor and off-road enthusiasts’ choice. But the Bronco will never sell to families and those who do not go hard-core offroading. In addition, get rid of the 3-row variant. They should reposition the Expedition as the 3-row body-on-frame SUV, and bring the new Chinese Edge as the unibody 3-row CUV. Please make it happen Jim Farley!
