Default Ford Ranger 1.9 body?

Do they make a Ranger body for 1.9 scale? I'd like to make it 1:1 with my own

they did make one. well there has been three that I can think of one from tamiya old school 80's ranger, and 2 from parma I think on old school and one mid 90's... trinity also pulled the mid 90's one I believe from the same mold.. the mid 90's one is a splash..

I think Bolink made one, too, back in the day. Early 90's?

Bolink made a 2001 ford ranger extended cab (exactly like the truck I had), part number 2221. I looked for one for about two years and never could find anything. Steve Rule, the guy that owned Bolink, told me that he had a few, but he never seemed to come through when I asked about buying them. He later offered to sell me the mold for the body (I think for about $300). I could try to find his email if you're interested in pursuing it, but he was never easy to pin down.

Actually, I just went looking and their site is still up:
http://www.bolink.com/bodies.html

There is a contact page, you could try to get in touch with them.

I'm done with the ranger and now have an 08 Nissan Titan crew cab. Parma and proline made it in a king cab, but finding the crew cab is like trying to find a ranger again!

I had Bolink pull some bodies for me last year from an old mold they still had.
They will be glad to pull bodies usually from their old molds, but you need to order at least 15. If I remember right, it cost me something like $225 for them to pull the 15 Lil Red wagon bodies I had pulled, thats like $15 ea.

Do you remember who you dealt with? I'm wondering if it was Steve with original bodies, or someone that he had sold the molds to.
Thanks,
Brian
