It must have been well taken care of. Maybe they used Amsoil or some kind of synthetic oils.

I would guess that they used good oil, or kept their speed under 55mph to decrease engine wear. It averages out to 68,000kms a year or 42K miles. Which is twice of what the average person drives with a personal vehicle. I could guess that it was a qork vehicle - traveling salesman perhaps. Some paving companies in my area use light duty or compact trucks to give quotes on. Mainly because they carry measuring wheels and other tools in the bed that won't generally fit in a car let alone keeping the interior clean. Just goes to show that the Rangers might be a basic truck, even newly built models, but they can sure take a beating!

The photo looks like an earlier Ranger. Surely they didn't keep that style in production longer up in Canada.

The style was changed the same time the US models were upgraded. I meant to say that the current Ranger platform hasn't changed much in the last 15+ years. They're a great price even new with the 4.0L V6 and 3.55 gears (2wd). I see quite a few still on the roads today - most are 2wd with the smaller V6. I'm sure on the '92 shown in the ad above only has a 6 digit ODO, so at least the seller is being honest by putting the 7th number (the 1) in front of the other six digits.

The ranger shown above is a 1st generation Ranger. 1983-1988. I've had a few of these and they had a (in the US) 5 digit ODO.

The 2nd generation, 89-92, looks like this

That is strange. From what I know anyway, the body styles were the same as US spec....

I know us Canucks have some different engine/trans options when compared to similar US vehicles. BMW 323i for example isn't offered in the US. The Smart Car was also a big hit up here as well before it was brought into the US ..shockingly.

That's most interesting though. It's a shame the picture in the ad wasn't better quality. Even at $750, it seems steep.
