WTB XR4Ti

Post by spiffy » Wed Apr 10, 2019 5:56 pm

As the title states, I’m probably in the market for another XR4Ti. Only mandatory thing is that it be a manual. I’d much prefer a running/driving example, as I don’t have the means to transport. If the condition and price is right, 3rd party transport could possibly be arranged.

I’m located in Kansas City, so the closer the better.

Thank you for your time,

Ethan

I'll sell you mine, but you won't like the price.

Stating your budget could get a few people interested.

Are you looking for a stock or modified, low/high mileage, crusty or minty.....

Fair point.

Only based on what I've purchased them for before, I'd be aiming to stay near the $3-4,000 range for a clean example (with some wiggle room available). I'm not quite after a low mileage show car by any means, but definitely not something requiring loads of work. Modifications are fine, however I'm mostly after something driveable with a decent body/interior.

Hope that helps.

I think Joe Smith (overcrest motorsports) has one for sale in Arkansas, I believe he's located in Siloam Springs?

Nice looking XR.
Those look just like Contour SVT wheels. I used to own a '98.
Is there something that can be done with the cladding short of painting the whole lot?

Sorry, these are not contour wheels. 16in cossies from Europe with Ford emblems. What's wrong with the cladding?

They look just like them. I was pretty sure they weren't the same with the whole FWD vs. Back Wheel Drive thing.
The cladding is darker in some places than others. A little elbow grease and some Back to Black would probably take care of it.

If you’d like to send me a deposit, I will make sure it gets detailed. I can definitely assure you that it looks amazing or your monies back. Also, I will be more cautious of sun & shadows as well.

It's probably the biggest, tallest one that's ever been put into a wheel stand, which had to be custom built.
I got a few bucks wrapped up in my show display, but it's an impossible to miss attention grabber.
