Nice 1988 Merkur XR4Ti For Sale

Post by gregk » Fri May 13, 2016 2:04 pm

I am the original, non-smoking owner, and the car is in very good, unmodified condition. This is a Colorado car that has always been garaged, and seldom driven since my move to Cleveland. It has the original black paint and black leather interior - no chips, dents or cracks respectively. It has been rigorously maintained with oil and filter changes every 3000 miles. The car runs strong, and mechanically needs no work. Recent maintenance included a new radiator, battery and detailing. I also have all of the original documents, a 4" factory repair manual, a second set of standard aluminum wheels and tires. an uninstalled NOS beverage holder, a bra and car cover. I'm asking $5600 for the lot. Pictures are available.

Very nice looking car.
Has a lot of miles but also just one owner who clearly kept it well.

On a well-maintained XR, that is just getting broken in. That isn't even 6,000 a year, and when you figure when new it was probably 12,000 miles a year for at least the first five years, it isn't even 4,000 from years 5-28.

Well, a lot of miles relatively speaking. It has 3.5 times the miles mine does.

It would be funny if the warranty was miles only. You'd still be covered.
