Sold!

5 speed manual. Too rusty to save, I think. Some of the suspension mounting points are becoming flexible. 5 digit odo says 57k miles. I assume it’s rolled over at least once. Runs, shifts, moves, stops. At least it did last spring. Bring a trailer for sure.

4 door Escort GT, basically. Mazda 1.8 dohc engine, four wheel disc brakes, bigger sway bar, etc. The interior is actually in pretty good shape. The seats are surprisingly comfy.

I was going to use the guts from this to build something cool but it’s probably time to admit that I just don’t have the time for another big project. Aka I we had a baby and I got distracted by other stuff.

Assume everything underneath is crusty.

I have a title but don’t think I ever transferred it to my name. I can try to do that if needed.

Located in Howell, MI.

I think I remember I paid $500 for it but... it’s a rusty Escort been sitting in a field for a couple years so... $500 or make an offer?

Might be able to help with transport too.

You are clearly overlooking the potential BP swapped F150 right in front of you!laugh

Alternatively I can get my silver car to your place somehow and we combine the two cars into one decent car in a weekend somehow. LOL

Looks just like it did when it left my property! Good luck with the sale. This car has so much potential as a parts car.

It fired up with a jump and drove around to the front. 3/4 tires are hopelessly flat.

The reason I never really drove it:

Too bad, it would have made a great little winter beater. I’m sure it was for someone at one point.

I am constantly amazed at the cars that someone or other posts about on here that apparently have a racer following. 

That's all.

I mean it's a BG with a BP. That's a fantastic starting point. I have a rust free straight protege LX body (needs paint as the factory paint was knocked down) drivetrain and rear brakes were pulled for a swap into a 323, as were the power sideview mirrors. I have a title. If that could be gotten to the OP from Maryland, I'd be game.

It’s got a “Miata engine” so that means it’s fast :P

Yep, got it. I'm slow emailing over the weekends. I believe we're all connected at this point.
