GM offered their longest frame of the Colorado/Canyon with the shortest cab, as a chassis-cab, for maximum cab-to-axle (about 4 feet). With the Super Cab not yet introduced, this would not have been an option for Ford. I suspect that a 1985 Ranger chassis-cab would be a "box delete": a normal pickup except that it comes with no box. That's how you buy a short-wheelbase or single rear wheel one-ton. I would hope that if Ford did a specific frame for a chassis-cab, they would make it longer and give it a wider axle with suitable wheels and tires.

A discussion at Ranger Station suggests that there were chassis-cabs, but the wheelbase is not mentioned and it appears to be just a box delete, perhaps with a stronger (but not dually) rear axle.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

Thanks for researching this, Brian. It has been a long time and I never did much work on the chassis cabs, as my work was in noise and vibration control and the incomplete vehicles got short shrift in that department. We did make some odd combinations for fleet buyers, like UHaul, for instance, that were never sold to the general public.

Good news and bad news. This scamp is no longer an option for me as we ended up needing a new truck. Good news is we have a new tug!

If you have any other questions, or need more info and photos, just drop me an email and I'll get back to you.

Subject: RE: Scamp Motorhome


Where in Greece are you at? Can I stop by and drive the motorhome?

He replied: As I told you in my first email, I recently got divorced.The rv is already at the shipping company in Lincoln ready for the shipping. My presence won't be necessary because I prearranged the deal with MSN Autos. The deal includes free delivery and it will arrive at your address in 3 days. You will have 5 days to try out prior to making any purchase and if by any reason you find something you don't like about it you can send it back at my expense.
If you are interested in knowing more info about how it works, I can ask MSN Autos to send you an email with more information on how to purchase it. MSN Autos will contact you shortly after they have the details with all the information that you need to complete this deal and you will also have proof that I am covered by them and a legitimate seller. If you would like to receive the email from MSN Autos will all the transaction information please reply with your full name and your shipping address and they will contact you right away.

Regards

Thinking to myself Yep! I'll get right on this. lol
I reported this ad and forwarded a copy of the e-mail exchange to the website this ad was found so they can remove it. I know it's a drop in the bucket but oh well!

MSN Autos is more focused into what is going on in the Auto Industry with blogs, reviews and is a source for research like Edmunds. They have nothing to do with sales or transport of used vehicles as far as I've ever seen. I can't even find where RV or Auto trader would ever get this involved in a transaction beyond listings.

Epic Fail!
