Here Are My 5 Favorite Old-School Ford Models for Sale on Autotrader

If you’re interested in some old-school Ford models, look no further. I’ve rounded up five of the coolest older Ford models currently listed for sale on Autotrader, all of which are special and unique in their own ways. These may not have the luxury or the technology of the latest Fords, but they’re still pretty exciting — even if only as relics of a bygone era in the automotive world.

1992 Ford Econoline

1992 Ford Econoline – $14,979

Although the Ford Econoline is hardly considered a "classic" or "special" Ford van, this particular one is pretty cool. For one thing, it’s a total relic from the 1990s — complete with pinstripes and running boards, all in various shades of blue. But the best part is that it’s been so well preserved, with its custom blue interior — one that includes curtains and ruffled trim everywhere — in near-perfect condition. This Econoline is offered by Frankman Motor Company in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, for $14,979. Find a Ford Econoline for sale

1993 Ford F-150 Lightning

1993 Ford F-150 Lightning – $35,000

Although most people remember the later Ford F-150 Lightning model, dubbed the SVT Lightning, this one was pretty cool, too. The lesser-known Lightning was sold in the early 1990s, and touts some performance upgrades that would be enhanced on later versions. This particular example is in truly amazing condition, having traveled just 8,700 miles from new — and now it’s offered by C&R Auto Fleet in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, for $35,000. Find a Ford F-150 for sale

1990 Ford Mustang GT

1990 Ford Mustang GT – $29,900

The "Fox Body" Ford Mustang is one of the most desirable versions of the car — a 1980s Mustang with boxy lines that only seem to be getting better with time. Most Fox Body Mustang models were driven hard, and it’s difficult to find one today in nice shape — but this one is perfect. It’s a 1990 GT model with a 5.0-liter V8, and it’s traveled just 5,000 miles from new. It’s offered by RK Motors in Charlotte for $29,900, reflecting the fact that you’re unlikely to find another Mustang quite like this. Find a Ford Mustang for sale

1984 Ford Ranger

1984 Ford Ranger – $26,900

Although any low-mileage older Ford pickup is an exciting vehicle, this Ranger is especially impressive as it’s a ground-up custom build that just looks — and, surely, is — ridiculous. Finished in yellow and featuring a wide rear end with huge back tires, this truck has a V8 swap and big power — far more than you’d ever get from a standard Ranger. It’s a special truck, and it’s offered by GR Auto Gallery in Grand Rapids, Michigan, for $26,900. Find a Ford Ranger for sale

1988 Ford Thunderbird – $32,995

The ninth-generation Ford Thunderbird was sold throughout the 1980s, and most have long been neglected by now — but not this one. This particular Thunderbird is a 1988 model in pristine shape, with 3,520 miles from new. Best of all, it’s a rare Turbo Coupe model, which was highly desirable thanks to its then-novel turbocharged 4-cylinder. This Thunderbird is offered by Cruisin Classics in Columbus, Ohio, where it’s listed for $32,995. Find a Ford Thunderbird for sale
