The problem with that is that nobody knows what a reasonable offer is. Only you can determine that. The request is that you put a number out there, so that people can then negotiate or whatever. You can put a higher number and say it's negotiable, or a lower number and say that it's firm. But it's a time-honored and reasonable way to sell something, which is why we make the request.

Sounds like a great way to become a Merkur enthusiast! If it's a late 87 with upgraded brakes/steering/exhaust manifold yet still a bi-wing (especially a mono white/black) that would really be a great way to join the club. Good luck with the sale.

Yes - mid 1987 so 15 inch stock rims, updated stereo and dash, improved brake boost. It also has a rapido intercooler and large VAM. As I’ve mentioned - lots of extra parts. I went to junkyards for over a decade hoarding parts. I want to say I have 2 dozen coolant tanks! It has only seen a few thousand miles of use in the past 20 years but starts right up for a annual car wash and once over.

Regarding selling price - I am not entertaining anything under 5K.

Hi, I have not received any emails... not sure what email address you're using. No PMs, either. Maybe try that?

John B, the original poster is Jon. I think Albion70 was referring to him.

Hello! I am very glad I found this post, I have been off and on Craigslist and Facebook marketplace for the past year looking for a Merkur Xr4ti. I have a pretty big obsession for Merkurs. Even though I have never owned one, or driven one. Ever since I saw one as a child I thought they were so weirdly cool(I am 22 now, if that makes sense lol). I did have a 84 mustang GT350 with a 2.3 Turbo. Oh boy do I love those engines and 5 speeds. Needless to say I am very interested, willing to travel. I am from Washington but I am currently in Texas for work. New to the forums specifically for this ad.

All,

Apologize to have missed some replies - it appears my email was not notifying me of messages being posted.

That said, I continue to look for a suitable buyer for my beloved Merkur XR4Ti. Between the condition and the spare parts coming with the car, it is an excellent value for anyone wishing to truly enjoy a unique car.

If you have any questions or wish to discuss further, please e-mail me directly at jdkaefer@gmail.com

Thank you!
Jon
