I have not seen one of these here in years (and years.)

The ad says a busted windshield was the cause for total (and likely the generally low book value of a Fiesta.)  He says that the replaced windshield should make it Ohio legal.  Actually, I think it could be gotten through the Ohio inspection with a still busted windshield.  However, I think they might require a front bumper to be in place.  Lots of mention of windshield in the ad but strangely, no pictures of windshield damage.  

Cool car but wrong time to buy it for myself.  Located about 1 hr from me if someone needs help.

A piece of 2x2 tube and you'd have a bumper. If I had a pole barn and didn't already have two project cars this would be a fun car. I'd build a replica of the Group 2 rally Fiestas for gits and shiggles.

A little less and I could probably swing this as the next rallycross car.  I really want something unusual/obscure this time around.

Posted this to the US Fiesta Facebook group. I'd jump on it if I didn't already have one.

Before I forked over the money I would make sure the replacement windshield is the correct one.

That is super cool - love the polished slots.

Wow, that is a beauty! 

My dad owned one of these from new. He said it was a great car. Haven't seen one for a LONG time.
