Post by Pbrophy »

I have an original - one owner 1985 Merkur XR4Ti 5 speed my dad bought new in 1985. This could be the nicest remaining original XR available. Vehicle is Bright Maroon over charcoal with grey leather. Never been wrecked- all original- including tires.
We are thinking about selling the vehicle- please respond if interested.

Is this car in Ohio by chance? If yes, did your dad work at Lincoln-Mercury?

UPDATE: This was not the car I was thinking about, its a darker red and not in Ohio.
For anyone interested in the geographical location, this one is in Kentucky.

Poof??
If it's for real, this car could bring $20K on Cars & Bids / BaT.
Of course, this would require work on the OP's part... LOTS and LOTS of pics and the car described in minute detail.

Then expect to throw some more $$$ at it to fix stuff that's broke from sitting. Let's start with those tires.
"Someone" already had this particular experience with the other model. But it ain't sitting now... it's a goer!!
200 mile RT to a show this weekend... :cheers
