Shoot, KBB classic listed a clean ‘87 at over $7500 when I first got mine on the road a few years ago. Kinda weird that an ‘87 was worth the most too for some reason.

Just speculation, but 1987 was the best year for the bi-wing models.

Someone paid $24,600 for a Scorpio?? :esurprise
Wonder what the mods are? Maybe a Corvette engine? That would be fun.

Probably a world record for a stock XR.
Unfortunately, it really can't be driven because 22 miles is a big part of the value.
'86 XR4Ti Custom 3/18/18 $19,500
A nicely modified car can get good money. Not so sure about a stock car with an automatic.
