Why is the VALUE OF THESE FANTASTIC CARS NOT RISING ??????

Post by Mercury Rising »

WHY IS THE PRICING SO LOW ON THESE FUN -PERFORMANCE, WITH RACE WINNING HISTORY , I JUST BROUGHT DOWN MY 85 (My 3rd one , and I'm the second owner on this one ) WHICH HAS BEEN IN STORAGE SINCE 1990 , W/7400 MILES 5 SPD COMPLETELY ORIGINAL SURVIVOR, A#10 FOR ORIGINAL, BUT # 5 ON CONDITION
PLAN IS TO BRING IT TO AUCTION , I CONTACTED BARRETT JACKSON , WAS TOLD THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A XR4 RUN THRU ,SO WEST PALM IN FEB IS THE PLAN ,
Hopefully I can raise the VALUES OF THESE FANTASTIC CARS , GET AWAY FROM THE STIGMA OF "FORDS RED HEADED STEPCHILD".

Because they aren't 60s-70s era muscle cars. They aren't rare in comparison to say a 69 Shelby GT350, or a Superbird. They don't have a V-8, and unfortunately, they got a undeserved bad reputation when they were new.
