This was an unusual combination of the Sand Scorcher/Rough Rider buggy chassis with a pickup truck body.

The Ranger was also the last vehicle Tamiya made to utilize this chassis in the original form (the Super Champ continued with most of the original chassis, but a newly designed rear suspension). Front and rear tires on the Ranger are the same as the rear tires on the Rough Rider.

The inside of the box reveals the typical SRB components. Metal of course.

These are two Rangers that I picked up. The one on the right is very used and needs a lot of TLC to bring it back to its former glory, so it gets thrown into the restoration queue.ÔøΩ

    Hi

    Cheeky question from a Brit.

    I have a 1981 Tamiya Ford Ranger 2 wheel drive, gold in colour, its in good genera lcondition with all the parts present, RX battery, servos, driver r4ear screen etc.

    What would be a sensible price to ask for it? it is untested.

    Thanks

    Pete

    You could probably get somewhere between $300-$500 USD for the condition you describe. Check ‘Completed Listings’ on ebay for similar items that have sold so you can get an idea of what items like yours sell.
