i have picked up my new turbo coupe today.
its a 87 med gray on raven car.
its has the same options color, etc as my current tc, just that it is a 87, not an 88.
but through some labor and parts trades the car is mine. no money exchanged
plans are to fix her up a bit and get it drivable. has low fuel pressure, misses and bucks and the rear brakes are locked up.
it has been sitting in my buddy tony sciea's yard for a few years.
he bought it as a parts car when the previous owner couldn't get it to run right. its gonna be a slow process. but the car is complete, a few pieces were used for other cars and such.but once in primer or cheapo paint will look good. another high milage car with 180,000 on clock... low milage is for *******. he he he but low compared the turbo II' 277,000 miles.
she not pefect but runs...somewhat
i'm excited!

excellent! the best kind of deal. i hope they didn't cut the harness when they replaced the door. the ford "engineer" that designed a door harness that has to be completely removed from the door before the door can be removed from the car should be executed.

yea great deal. love it, i dunno about carlisle, this will likly turn into the daily driver once i get it running correctly and cleaned up. maybe next spring spray some matte gray paint on it.

i was the one that put the door on it. i traded tony a t-3 for the door for my fathers 88 LX tbird and we took the door completly apart to swap it.
its been over 2 years and the door panel and arm rest are still on the back seat!

it was hard to believe at first, so awesome, im so excited.... just sometimes i feel my current TC is an expensive basket case.......
so i get a fresh unmolested start
