For Sale: 1991 Ford Explorer in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

This 1991 Ford Explorer Sport represents the first year for the now legendary SUV model. And this one has all the best features you really want, like a fuel-injected V6, a five-speed, four-wheel drive, and the rare two-door configuration.

These almost should have been called Broncos. After all, they shared the same brawny look with the Bronco IIs of the era, but with a longer wheelbase for more everyday-friendly use. These made sure to showcase the utility part of a Sport Utility Vehicle, and you see that in the details with the front brush guard, side step rails, a trailer hitch, and premium alloys with auto-locking front hubs. The paint, decals, and trim, are starting to show their age, but for those who cherish originality, this has a detailed factory style that will be quite attractive. After all, it's great to have such a stock and factory style on a first-year Explorer. But the value price also leaves room in your budget if you want to invest in a respray or other improvements that will return your classic to a truly shining example. And no matter your taste, this has the right look of good panels and good care that make it fundamentally attractive.

One of the reasons the Explorer immediately found a following was because Ford made all the best creature comforts available, and this highly stock example showcases it quite nicely. It's extra comfortable for the driver thanks to bucket seats, a cup holder center console, and a fold-down armrest. There are nice factory options like power windows, power locks, and fingertip cruise control settings on the steering wheel. There are even provisions for the factory radio and air conditioning (they will need servicing and/or parts to fully function.). The rear seats offer good legroom, and the Explorer Sport means plenty more cargo room than the Bronco II. It all looks quite stock and clean, but there will be a few details that show their age. Still, when you open the door and see the courtesy lights greet you, you realize this has been cared for correctly for over 30 years. This vehicle has a 5-digit odometer and it may have already rolled over.

Under the hood is the correct 4.0-liter fuel-injected V6. This was the right motor for the era because it was the highest option for the Ranger truck line and a version was even used in the Mustang. So it found a good home in a vehicle that wanted to be as rugged as a truck and as useful as a car. The same kind of easy use versatility is on the push-button two-speed 4x4 transfer case. And there are the right anytime driving features like power steering, power brakes, front discs, and the control of a five-speed manual transmission that features overdrive.

This is the one that launched the legend. So if you're starting to catch on to classic SUVs, this has a ton of appeal. Call now!
