Ranger GT | Thu, 05 Mar 2009 Posted by : Shannon Larratt
In the late sixties, before GT cars like the Manta Mirage and Montage, came a little car called the Ranger GT. Absolutely built on the KISS principle — as in “keep it simple, stupid” — the Ranger GT was built much like a dunebuggy — a simple one piece fiberglass body mounted on a VW bug chassis shortened by ten inches. It came with a removable top, and must have felt like driving a go kart for the street.
My friend that sent in these materials adds, “with a Kit car market dominated by high priced Cobra’s and Lambo kits it would be nice to see a company get back to the basics. Nothing against them, I have owned one myself but nowadays people spend more time building than driving.” I agree completely!
