I would be on the road in 10 seconds if I were actively employed. This thing is perfect, exactly what I was looking for as a base for a gen 1 build. Price is fair, under 4500. In TN almost straight south from where I am at.

Almost too good to drop an engine in.

Holy cow...it’s like it just rolled off the show room floor! Which reminds me, if anyone sees a 1st gen single cab Ranger (long or short bed) for cheap, like less than 1000 cheap (running or not) that the body isn’t rusted to crap everywhere (a little rust is okay, there’s a bunch of yard here that have old rangers but they won’t sell them whole so body parts are replaceable) then let me know. I might be interested. But something like that is just beautiful, how many miles on it, do you know? 5? Lol

Almost, I need extended cab on the next truck. The stepside on mine looks good but I would rather have bed space like this one.

A wing window is that little triangle of glass that doesn’t roll down when you roll the windows down. You push it out and it’ll blast wind in your face when you’re driving

It also used to be called a smoker's window. It could be set to draw from the inside.

Yes, air circulates at the rate you want by varying the opening.

I the windshield fogs some, open the Wing/Vent and it clears up.
My '88 STX had them, miss them, AND my 1st Gen had no side window problems.

When it get a little warm, you open the Vent Windows, cools off with the circulation.

Funny how things that actually work well... disappear.

Where are the vent Windows on that 1st Gen ?

I’m 23 years old (maybe one of the youngest forum members?) and even I knew what a wing window was!

My dad had one on a 67 LTD. I thought they were ugly and horribly loud on the freeway. Like the kind of noise you encounter at a Ratt concert.

Never knew what they were called.

I've always called them "Vent Windows", because that is what they do.

Using them on the Hy-Way... I used to just open them a little and the open the Back Cab Window... air in from the back out the vent windows.

Didn't think much about the look, they were always there sort of thing, they worked !

My mom and dad both were multiple pack a day smokers so the tiny window was usually open.
