Well, like the title says, just guaging a little interest here. May be almost time to purchase a ring for the old lady soon and looking to see what I could get for the 85. Here's some info on the car:
1)Black (needs a paint job - but the car is straight, also, crack in rear bumper cover - will need a new one)
2)Gray interior which previous owner started to dye black. He appeared to do the center console, headliner, top dash pad, and door panels. Not really my thing, I was going to bring it all back original.
3)T-tops are in good shape but do leak a little if water is directed straight at them (i.e. with a hose)
4)Has a cowl hood which is relatively small (I'd say maybe 2 inch..maybe 2.5)
5)Has very clean 10 holes with brand new tires
6)Motor shows 69,000 on the odometer, which I'm assuming is 169,000. Previous owner said the gentleman he brought it from said it was the original motor, but the motor looks like it has been out before cause it's painted ford blue and it has very good oil pressure.
7)Mods are edelbrock carb, edelbrock performer rpm intake, shorty headers, h-pipe, flowmasters, 3.73's, subframe connectors, southside bars, holley blue pump, msd 6AL box
8)I've replaced the starter, put a new optima red top battery in it, replaced the water pump with a BRAND NEW unit from Ford along with new bolts, and replaced the starter solenoid as well.
9)Car is a 5speed with a smooth shifting tranny - no problems
The car runs great and is very dependable for daily driving. It really pains me to have to part with it, but I can't afford to give it the paint job it needs and I really don't want to give it a cheap paint job. At the same time, I'm trying to save for a ring, so it's kinda difficult as I'm sure some of you have gone through the same situation. Again, I'm just guaging some interest here, not 100% I'm going to sell. Thanks for your time!
