1986 capri rs

This is a 1986 capri.I found sitting in a heated garage.The plates on it expired in 1993.the car is maroon.It was the original owner that I got it from.the car has 72k on it.
5.0 5speed.the car was bought new in columbus ohio.He was in the service and got transfered top virginia after buying the car.it was in virginia until 1990.Then he moved back here.the car has been repainted in 89 due to his motorcycle falling over onto the hood and putting saleen style side ground effects on it.I took them off.the seats were changed out for 87gt seats in 1989.the interior is real nice.the car doesn't even have any surface rust on it.

it has a factory sunroof and the original sunroof bag is still in the hatch for it.The drivetrain is totally original.still has the original exhaust on it.the floor doesn't have any sine of rust.not even surface.the car is one of the cleanest fox bodies I've ever seen on the underside.

It has factory 10 holes on it.good year tires like new.he said they had about 300 miles on it when it was parked.

the reason it was parked is it had a valve cover leak.he took the upper plenum off to change the valve cove gasket.he drpooed a hose clamp in the motor.He didn't realize it until he started it.he then tore it back down and he had scuffed the top of the piston on #7cylinder.he cleaned everything up and put it back together.He said when he started it back up he heard a noise that sounded like a rist pin.so he never messed with it again.That was early 1993.
I got the car 2 weeks ago.I put a battery in it and got it started.I could tell when i started it the timing was way off.I timed it and I did hear the noise when I started it.I ran it down the road got on it a coupel times and the noise went away.I don't know what it is but when it warmed up it was gone.I started it yesterday.and it didn't make a noise at all. so I don't know if it was by chance a dry rist pin or if it had something else.I really wanted to keep the car.but I need to find a place to live so now i'm selling it.I want 3500 obo.

I can't even believe what I found wrong with this car.the noise in the motor sounded high in it.I took the upper plenum off pulled a valve cover and found 2 rocker arms off of the pushrods.I fixed it and this thing runs great.I have out a hundred miles on it this weekend it is awsome.I think I'm going to keep it now.

What is the story? Is the car still available? This sounds like a deal that would be hard to refuse. Capri's aren't available in this condition very often. Could I have some pics if possible. Thanks.
