Not mine, etc...

Lots of potential as a parts donor for $100


1986 Mercury Cougar XR7 Turbo Coupe. 2.3 turbo 4 cyl with Borg Warner 5 speed. New rocker arm and timing belt. Needs body work on nose. Has electrical short. Windshield cracked. Silver with red interior. Rare car with only 6,504 made in 1986. Good interior, front bumper cover damaged underneath. Too many projects, can't get to it. Same drivetrain as Thunderbird Turbo Coupe and 84-86 Mustang SVO. Hasn't run in a 2-3 years. Will need to be towed. $100 firm.

Location: Plymouth, CT

Damn, that is a steal for that drivetrain.

Dang. Basically free if you scrap the car after you pull it too.

Or better yet, you can have a Cougar.

I'm going to see if I can mobilize a truck and trailer for this one.

This is the drivetrain I want to drop in either my Amazon wagon or my wrecked GLC to take it Chumpcar racing. Around here they are never under $500 for just the engine.

Those are very rare, and even more rare these days. I haven't seen a 83-88 Cougar in any trim level in any condition in a long time up here, let alone a turbo XR7. If I had the place to put that I would buy it in a second and save it.

(used to have two '87 XR7's, and one was silver, too.)
