Vehicle1998 Ford Ranger EV
This is my 2nd factory Ford Ranger EV. This
one is a 1998 model, which has the one-year-
only fiber composite leaf springs and Watt's
linkage on the rear de-dion tube suspension.

Since I have two of these trucks, I've decided
to put this one up for sale. It does nut
currently run, but according to the previous
owner did allegedly run about 3-4 years ago.
With a new battery pack (either lead acid, or
upgrade to lithium) this truck could be back
on the road!
