    Default 1987 Cougar XR-7 Thoughts, opinions, feedback please.

    This car if i pull the trigger is going to be a light use daily driver, local in town a few times a week, and double as a hobby, cruise night car until funds permit me getting the Bird back together post flood. Just wanted thoughts or opinions on this car from you guys. Its a 1987 XR-7 Well equipped, and only 72,000 original miles. Going to run me 2k and he is very firm on the price. Needs nothing, cold AC, new tires, recent tune up, no mods, and Leather Interior with full console, floor shifter, dual power seats etc. As far as i can tell, it only is missing the factory EQ, and Sunroof. Here are some pics, i need to decide today/tomorrow so all thoughts are welcome......

    This looks like a very straight car. Don't see how you could go wrong at $2000. Herb

    Looks like a safe investment for a great car. It's also listed on Ebay for $2,500

    Yeah he's listed it a couple times on the bay. I don't think the bid even hit 2k either time. But that's fair for that vehicle, it's clearly nice and 72k is honestly impressive.

    Its fair for any car thats turn key and mechanically sound. The fact that its a low mileage v8 foxbody ford, is just a bonus! Totally original car as well, no mods of any kind.
