88 V-6 NY State $500

The good: radiator fluid flushed in February. New break lines last year. Transmission fluid is clean and red. 6 cylinder engine. 173,000 miles. Brand new battery. The bad: Exhaust has hole and gas tank has small leak, and door handle opens, but sucks. You can drive the car, and it does not require EVAP inspection. Everything's original. No rips in interior. Call or text if interested.
This project is stressing me out, I love it !!!

I have an 88 cougar shell at this point, that has rust free front fenders (both at least a little dinged up though), good glass, good floors and PERFECT front frame rails.
At some point I plan to try and maybe cut it apart and keep these things around in case someday they can be used. I would give the thing to anyone on here but we're all so spread out :(

I had a contact from my area who is dying to find a 87 or 88 Cougar that he can drop his monstrous motor in.

But yes, you are 5 hours away.

I moved my original owned XR-7 the other day, muffler blew apart.

As many parts as I have, I always seem to need something I don't have.
