Anyone have any insight into what year and model this explorer is? I THINK the serial number is seven digits: 8()25102 as i cannot figure out what the second number is.

I think it is an '81. Looks to have 8 digits. 1st and 5th for the year.

That is what I thought it was as well. Is there a specific model it is for that year? And what do 81 explorers of this kind usually go for? (If there is a general price range)
