Eh, just a few minor mods. You can pick up some Takatas real cheap.

Clicking on this link, I'm curious how you really get any info on the cars, contact info or something. It's like a low buck ebay? lots of spam links....???

Hi all,

I am sure there is no listing for a Merk in the craigslist auto section so he chose Mustang. Maybe?

How does an '89 have an '88 coolant bottle? If it runs OK that doesn't look too bad. I have not seen leather that color before in person.

Swap it out. There were more 85-88's made than 89's.
It has an IC system, so maybe he swapped the rad as well for a cooling system he could get and made it work.

The car is pretty close to my home, about 20 minutes from me.
I think looks are deceiving, if you look at the rocker edge in the car you can see the rust sneaking up from the bottom.
Under the plastics I'd guess that nobody is home.
It's unfortunate, because for the most part the car looks in decent shape.

I've got one for sale.. anyone know a good forum for listing it? I thought maybe there'd be a for sale section on the site . here but no luck (unless I'm just missing it).
