Wow, that IS a nice truck.  Good to see actual bidding going on up.

That truck is Big Blue's brother.  But, it is in better shape than BB.  It is now on my "research" list.

Again, we need a historian!

That's a nice truck as well.  But, it is an oddity - an Explorer with a rubber mat rather than carpet.  However, the '85 Explorer brochure does say that Package A trucks got "Color keyed floor mat with insulation" while Package B trucks got "Color keyed carpeting".  I'd never noticed that.  And I've never seen an Explorer with a rubber mat.

Nice trucks! Surprised the tailgate trim is missing on the first one.

That first truck is a good example to illustrate the two different shades of red offered from 1984 - 1987.  

The lighter top and bottom color is Light Canyon red (2E), while the middle color is Dark Canyon red (51).

Rick - Good point.  And since that page and those pics will go away, here are a couple of snags:

Welcome!  Glad you joined!  

We are a small but friendly group, and we like calling each other by name rather than screen name.  And, a signature is a huge help when we start talking about your truck.  So why not join the two ideas and create a signature that includes not only the info about your beautiful truck but also your first name.

And, an introduction in the New Members folder is appreciated as well.  Not everyone will see your post here, but more will see it there..

Also, we have a member's map (Bullnose Forum/Member's Map in the menu) and I'd be happy to add you if I just had a town/city.

Gary, this is an example of what the 1980 - 1986 trucks are actually selling for.

True, David.  Now if we just had a way to keep track.

And, I can confirm that you'd never in a million years be able to build that truck for that price.

Well done Fryeken, and welcome aboard;).

If we had someone who wanted to be the "historian of sales" and kept track of trucks and what they sold for and when they sold we'd have something that no one else has - that I'm aware of.  Kind of an index of pictures and sales prices that people could look through to see what they should pay for a similar truck, or ask for theirs.

I really don't know what all it would entail.  Those are just some of my thoughts.

I understand.  I do not like using my phone, and Jim/ArdWrknTrk has pointed out some of the problems with doing so.

Also, if you decide you'd like an avatar, downsize your pic to 200 x 200 pixels so you don't have to crop it.  Basically, cropping on the phone doesn't work.

Anyway, when do you get the truck??????

I’m in Salem Ohio. It’s between Pittsburgh and Cleveland. Or for gear heads I’m about.  20 minutes from the Canfield fairgrounds where several big swap meets are held every year.

Truck is inbound from Seattle. It’s like 2500 miles or so.

For me this is the unicorn truck. I thought I wanted a manual, but I’ll want to enjoy until the end so the auto is the way to go.

Compared to buying a donor truck and creating this one
It was a bargain.
