1988 XR4Ti (76k mi) with 5.0L (16k mi) -$2200

1988 XR4Ti with 76k miles and a 5.0L with 16k miles.
I’m posting this for my father, but I’ll give you his contact info if you are interested.

He bought this car new. After years of driving the turbo actuator failed. Since Ford wouldn’t sell just an actuator and a new turbo assembly cost almost as much as a new V8...

He actually bought a new V8, to put in this, but later switched to a complete V8/trans/EFI from an SN95 Mustang. The engine only has 16k miles and was purchased from a friend who was converting his car to a drag racer.

The Merkur was originally an automatic, but comes with a manual pedal cluster and manual shifter console.

The engine/trans are only sitting in the car and are not mounted. Motor mounts and transmissions mounts come with it.

The leather interior is in fantastic condition. The exterior had a large din/small dent in the driver side front fender see pictures. The paint is in great shape, but has faded on the plastic/bumpers. Tires are brand new, but many years old. He started this project long ago and is now trying to clean up space and focus on other projects.
