There have been a few folks on here who have expressed interest in this car so I am putting it up here before it goes to ebay. I am always leery about selling cars that are really modified. Consider it a driving project.

You know the car. 200 inline six backed by a T5 and a narrowed 8.8" disc brake rear end with 3:73 gears. Granada front discs. 17" Dodge Charger steel wheels, Custom front coilover setup. 3" lowering blocks in the back. No rust under the car. Original floors. 

I can and will include a 2.3 turbo swap if you would like to chat about that. I have a whole XR4Ti plus a 2.3 bellhousing and new flywheel that we can make a hell of a deal on, although I imagine a 5.0 swap makes more sense for most folks.

Special GRM only price of $3500. Contact me and we can go over all the little details and areas that need addressing. Located in Eugene, Oregon. I tend to receive PM's from here even though the ones I send to other users usually don't go through. So PM or email trent at ditchdigger dot org. You can send a number and we can chat or text. I will try and do a walkaround video.

I have too many projects and have lost all interest in this one. It pains me to see it sit.

Wow that’s nice.  Around me, at that asking price, there’s a lot of rust.

Good luck with the sale.   Seems like a very cool car and a good price for where it stands now.

Always liked this car and would love to give it a home. Unfortunately wife has mandated A/C for any future classics.

Wow, that seems like a bargain. OR is a long way from NC though. Falcon is one of my go to craigslist searches, but I really want a wagon. Good luck on the sale.

Hot damn, I love that car and I'm close! What kind of price are we talking on for the 2.3T stuff included? How does the 200 run now?

200 runs fine. It pounds out a whopping 52 horsepower to the ground which is fine around town but a bit sketchy merging into freeway traffic. It is slow, there is no denying that. This motor is all over by 3000 RPM.  There is a driveline vibration at around 60mph that I never got around to addressing. 

Whole XR4Ti included? Add $150 for a local GRMer.

I want this. I don't have the time, money or space for it, but I really want it. I also want to road trip it back to Ohio. I also want the Merkur. I don't know if it's a good thing or a bad thing you're about as far away as possible.

I did indeed sell it. 

It went to a very good guy and will finally receive the 302 I should have swapped in from the beginning.
