Wanted to Buy - a black XR4TI stick or automatic

Post by tdiguardi » Fri Jun 12, 2020 10:16 am

Hello again. I was on this web site scouting for a Merkur XR4TI to replace one I sold like 20 years ago and still miss. and then all of a sudden ran into some car hobby issues and also some medical issues. Stinks getting older! At 59 years old my body decided I can't eat certain foods and milk products I ate my whole life and the gall bladder had to come out and then my appendix 2 weeks ago. and the list goes on. and then a transport company totally damaged a car I bought that made me sick. Long story, but I was physically sick after I saw the damage they caused! The insurance money finally came thru. Be careful about car shippers.

Ok, scouting for a double fin black Merkur XR4TI car. Auto or stick. The nicer the better. My old was was a 1986??
I would love the grey leather interior and a sunroof. Some upgrades ok if done correctly. Cosworth stuff a plus? Also open to other colors if I cannot find a black one. I have a 1966 fiberglass body car, tubular chassie mid engine vintage race car / street car as a possible trade option or just cash.

If you have any more info on this-- what it is, even-- I'm sure that would help. Good luck with your search. I've always felt that the black color is the best for this car. 8)

Sorry to hear you had a bad experience. A few years back we used Nationwide United Auto Transport for a car shipping. I would definitely recommend them :D

Tim,
I may end up selling my 85. Black with gray leather interior - driver seat multiple cracks, the rest good. Body and frame nice. It has 4 speed AT (A4LD), but I have parts needed for manual swap, except tranny and clutch. Some mods: Cosworth RS front grill, Big VAM, FMIC, 3" exhaust, SVO ECU, upgraded brakes and suspension, 205/50-16 Conti Extreme Contact tires, on 16x7 Rota Slipstreams.
PM me if interested.
82 Mustang GT, 408W install in prog
83 Ranger, 302, T5
85 XR4TI, need to do AT>T5 swap! Arrgh!
