Okay.......I am still looking for another five speed car. Trade my 94' LX or buy out right.

I have a "never been in snow/salt" '89 5 speed SC, white with red leather interior for $2500 firm. Michigan area, everything works except cruise. Many miles but much has been replaced and the car is very strong. Drive this one home to anywhere in the country. I've owned the car since new and done nearly all the maintenance myself. I have complete maintenance logs from day one.

Sure I can send pictures! Just a few particulars about the car. Oil changed every 3,000 miles, front seats and bolsters pristine (recently re done), remainder of the interior is very nice except cracked upper dash padding, original paint is in good shape, recent new windshield, SC and ABS re done recently, last compression test very good, 5% SC overdrive and full set of underdrive pulleys (15 PSI boost), all pumps have been changed, radiator replaced, computer replaced. All four adjustable shocks have been replaced. Car is loaded with moon roof, premium sound, door locks, leather, power seats, Pioneer CD radio (original in a box in the trunk along with many replaced parts.)

Post a reply with your address or call me at 616-897-9846 or my cell at 616-915-7304.

Thx...got the pics.........a very nice car! The weather would need to be much better to drive it back home. It's snowing here again today. Clean up from the last blast of snow is a continuing thing too. I saved your e-mail to keep in touch. I have no problem with your price either, the car looks worth it to me.Thanks.

Okay.......anyone close to the Chicagoland area with one that is running but rusty or dinged up? ?

I have an idea for a killer swap, but it will not be from a very nice car.

I'm still interest in the clean SC in Michigan.

A "beater" SC would be for a swap....... one of my sons and I are thinking of a complete SC drivetrain swap into his first car. (He still has it)
It's an 81' Granada GLX two door.

Interested in any offers of five speed cars.

Waiting for better weather to see the Michigan car. Maybe a third five speed car?

I have a 5spd XR7 that I am thinking about selling. It's a bit rusty but the drivetrain is in good condition. In fact the car runs and drives more or less perfect. ARC even works fine. 190K on the chassis but the trans was rebuilt somewhere between 100-150K and the motor is a reman with about 40-50K on it. I drive it daily right now. I've replaced a lot of the suspension stuff on it and the shocks are from a lower mileage car. It's a super reliable daily driver. Oh, and converted to non-ABS brakes too.

I'm looking for $1000 out of it.

Sweet......can you e-mail me pics? [email protected] would be safe to drive it back to the Chicagoland area?

Hi Dave..were you able to get some pics? Bruce, sent a pm.

XR7 Dave

Sorry, didn't manage to snap any pictures before we got hammered with snow. I was trying to get it washed so you can see it better before taking pictures.

Hi Dave....the weather out this way has been keeping us busy as well. When you get a chance works for me.

CougarXR/7
03-10-2011, 07:54 PM
Well.........guess I'm still looking for one.

CougarXR/7
04-02-2011, 04:05 PM
Well.........still looking before I make a trip to Michigan to see another five speed car.

XR7 Dave
04-02-2011, 04:30 PM
Sorry I didn't come through with the pictures. I'm still on the fence about selling the car. I drive it daily and it's very reliable as far as I'm concerned. I have other cars to drive but when I think of letting it go for the $1000 I promised above, it just seems like it's worth more. Ugh.

The car has some issues - like the motor has a little piston slap when it's cold that you need to let it run for 30 seconds before driving it in the morning. It's fine in warm weather or when the engine is warm but I hate to sell it to anyone and have them be disappointed in that. This motor still makes great power and pulls 19" of vacuum at idle so it's not like the motor is dead or worn out it just has this annoying cold start thing.

I think after I posted above was just before I took a trip in the car and it struck me during the trip that although the car doesn't look that great it sure does drive nice.

So what am I saying? Well just explaining why I didn't come through after I offered the car the first time. It really is a toss up whether I get rid of the car or just drive the wheels off it. It seems like it's worth a little more than just parts for a 5spd swap.

Not a problem Dave............I understand being attached to a car. It won't be used as a parts or donor car. A nice Dad/Grampa and Sons project car is what it's future would be. Should you decide to sell it, please let me know.Thanks, Ron

Custom. Black roof and trunk where going to be next, my old fox body was the opposite. Old habbits die hard I suppose.

Looks good though right? :)

Well.....between working six days a week, life and family....I have not been able to make a deal yet. Kraft and other companies have been keeping us busy as.......uh...all get out. I have seen pics of some very nice cars to say the least. Time has been my big enemy to buy a second 5 spd SC. I'm still looking, trading my 94' 4.6 LX would help too.

I'm not sure if you seen my posting for my 94. It runs good. I would take it anywhere. She's getting a little rusty. Not sure if that is what you are looking for. I am willing to take offers on her. :(

07-17-2011, 01:31 PM
Ok, I shouldn't even post on here because I stiffed you before, but as it so happens I've become motivated to let the 90 XR7 go once again. I'm even going to be in your area in a couple weeks and could drop it off.....

Still have to get some pics up though.

CougarXR/7
07-17-2011, 04:33 PM
Hi Dave...........I understand letting a car you are connected to go. I can't recall if I had seen pics of it. I'm interested in it. If you are driving it out here soon, could be great! Thanks for letting me know. Ron

Sounds goodto me. Just FYI, my brothers will be driving through Chicago on their way to SD around the end of next week, possibly early the following. It could be delivered to you at that time.

I have a 92 Five Speed SC in very good condition. Calif car with absolutely NO RUST. I just repaired the driver seat with factory material and the interior looks good now. It needs a clutch or at least the hydraulics either master or slave or both (gets low on fluid weekly). The tranny could use third gear syncros looked at while its out. Other than that it runs great, lots of power. Privious owner put new heads and water pump on no more than 1000 miles ago. AC works, Cruse does not work, speedo works but is off by 10%, odom does not work. I have a replacement instrument cluster to install and see if that fixes it, the replacement is from a 90 SC at the "Pick&Pull" yard. It could use paint but I didn't want to paint it in Calif because all the shops here use water based paint. Got too many projects. $2000 OBO can send pics.
