It depends on the condition of that 85 Ranger....
If it still looks good and can perform well... Then go for it!

Aside from checking the overall condition, consider the price before buying one.

In 1985, a Mitsubishi-built 2.3 L turbodiesel with 86 hp replaced the Mazda diesel engine. The diesels were no longer an option after 1987. These Rangers are rare now, but a few seem to be showing up now on ebay
