I currently have a really nice 1987 XR with low mileage and some nice mods. I'm planning on swapping a 5.0 from a Foxbody into it. I do have some reservation about pulling a running car into pieces to do the swap. If someone has a mostly complete NICE XR that has either no driveline or a "blown up" driveline, I might be interested in it. (I'd even look at stalled projects that have been sitting.)
I don't want to get into replacing entire interiors or fixing ANY body damage, including rust. I'd like a later model (87-up) due to the wiring issues being (mostly) remedied in those cars. I don't mind paying "up" for particularly nice examples. I could buy someone's running car but then I'd be better off just using the one I have.
I'm busy perusing the classifieds here on the forums but many have been sold. (Can we delete the listings, once they're sold? Or at least add "SOLD" to the title?)
If I don't find one, that's fine, I'll just use the one I have. If someone has one, let me know. I do need to acquire something in the next month or so as there's a plan to drive a V8 XR to Carlisle in June.
