Must be the V-6 model.
Back when I was a kid and my family owned a window screen shop, we bought two of the first "little" Rangers (the Ranger used to be a specific package on F100/150s) in '82, both trucks were new for '83 model year. These new Rangers had the 2.3 and C3 auto and were definitely capable of 75MPH with 500lbs in the bed. How long those craptastic C3 trannies lasted was another matter
Our screenshop had 7 different Ford Rangers from '83 to '89, none of the auto trannies lasted very long lol
