Agreed....How did you find out about the date of production?
The production date is stamped on the driver's side strut tower in yellow.

Re: Did you like the Wheeler Dealers XR episode?

After the Capri II episodee I tend to be skeptical on both the sale and the price. Still entertaining to watch though. I even like Ant as much as I liked Edd.

Re: XR featured on Wheelers Dealers this season

You'll never truly know if they make a profit on it. They often haven't even sold them by the time they "sell" it.

Re: New Here- Planning on buying an XR4Ti soon!

What Mike said is true, but there are parts that are hard to or impossible to find at this point. But I had one new in 86 and getting parts for them even then was hard. After Ford abandoned the brand it became far more difficult, but now with the internet and vendors reproducing parts, it is easier.

Re: '87 XR4Ti for sale in Texas

Yes Sir David......!!!!!! Thanks for the note back. Looks like, from your garage inventory, you'd have some interesting stories about how and who you acquired those treasures from! Well, the mini-van was pretty impressive. I'm sure we'd all love to hear whatever insight you could provide to the Mer...

The white Merkur is not Jack's. For photos go to MagentaRed's post in 2010 Carlisle archives.

It isn't a Merkur either.

"Capri"? Did you catch a typo? Jack didn't tell me about a Capri. What do you know about Jack & Capri?
The white car in the memorabilia picture. I assume it wasn't his.

Which vent?
Driver's side, closest to the door. I thought they were all the same. I've got several, but hate the idea of taking it off a good dash.

Re: Electrical problems beyond my skill Any advice how to proceed

Fusible links are your friends. They are there for a reason. My Scorpio didn't have one and the wire between the battery and fusebox melted, taking lots of electrical parts with it. Two-plus years later, it is almost ready for the road.
