about 6 months ago I found a Merkur XR4TI 1988 for sale. Immediatly I had crush on that car. I didn't know anything about this model so I made a lot of research and I got into it, althought it wasn't a good time for me to get it so I let it pass. Fast foward to now, I checked up online if it was still for sale and it is. So I send an email to the guy with question's and asking for more pictures since he is somewhat of a long drive from where I am. Info from vendor : all body parts are Cosworth replicas , some rust has started to form in the rear wheel arch , has worked on it ( you can see from the pictures ) , the headgasket of the engine blew ( say's there's only minor wear but nothing major ). The car is listed at 2 000$ cdn ( I do plan on negociating ).
Here is a Google Drive link so you can see the picture's : https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/ ... sp=sharing
I would like to know what you guy's think of it ( opinion's, comments, concern's, price, etc ).
My plan would be to make rally spec and I plan on working on it mostly by myself. I have made some research and I coulnd't ANY other Merkur whatsoever in my region ( Quebec, Canada ) so I kinda feel like it's a one-time opportunity.
I'm not a fan of the basketweave wheels, but this is one car that needs to have them.'
They're a pain to clean, which is why mine are boxed up in my basement, replaced with piepans.

This one has a very bright and shiny future.
