It is tough to see what role this would serve me. If I lived in the city and could only have one vehicle it would probably be a Ranger/Colorado or an Outback. For a Nth vehicle microtruck toy, $40k is a lot. I would probably instead look for a super clean old ranger. You can find AMAZING specimens for <$25k.
Bid for the chance to own a No Reserve: 1991 Ford Ranger XLT SuperCab 4.0L 4×4 5-Speed at auction with Bring a Trailer, the home of the best vintage and classic cars online. Lot #118,826.bringatrailer.com
IMO, the Maverick makes its best case when it is $30k and below.
