    35th.

    I am possibly picking up a repairable 35th this weekend. Its actually 122,000 miles on it.

    What do I do with it.
    Will it always be stained for collectibility and demand less then a premium? If so then the choices become a dilema.


    See pics a few posts down.

    It has not been reported so the title I assume is clean. With no carfax history.

    .................

    I think that if you want a collectible, you should buy that 35th with about 5000 miles for 10000. for this anny, since you have to fix it up, make it the anny u feel ford should have made. the way it makes you happy. just what I think.

    The votes are all over the place.

    If the concensus was that the car has little to no value, when I mean that I mean if I get sick of it after a year and I sell it, will people even consider it as a 35th or just another good looking SC.

    If no one thinks its worth much after the fender bender even if repaired correctly, I would like to do a 94 bumper with 96 headlights and my SVO hood. Add to that maybe swap a 5speed, lower it, tint it and put some deep dish cobra Rs in black. Like my car has but black. I think this would make it a very cool looking 35th but I know changes like that decreases any chance of sell it as a 35th with a premium. It will become just another SC.

    I say you do what ever you want with it. If it is not worth as much so what, if you like the car, get it to enjoy it.

    If you do decide to fix it up, let me know as I have all kinds of parts from my 1990 that I'll give you cheap.

    If the body is rust free its worth fixing in my opinion , I know of a few early 60's cars that were wrecked at one time and people love em. Drive it after to enjoy

    .................

    Rico, there was an anny sold a couple years back out of arizona. had the newer lights and hood. looked real nice. can't remember price but woulda bought it if I woulda been in the market for an SC that year. I think the changes you will make won't effect you when you resell. And I am sure that i'll wish I had the money to spend when you do sell.. The economy and peoples financial situations might be the reason it doesn't sell fast.

    35th

    I found a 35 Anni.................for $400.oo locally.

    It was used, abused, rusted, dentd and damaged.

    I stripped it...........was not worth repairing.

    Yours? Fix it back up and either drive it and enjoy it or store it.

    I am officially a bonnafied SC nut/ I need to get checked it for rehab, is there such thing?


    I went to pick up one and I end up with two. Sounds like the 35th is getting a manual The parts car will donate the 5spd components to the Anny and well as its radiator support and bumper reinforcment and absorber.

    The parts car has slight damage on the front bumper, the hood is corroded on the inner front lip and the fender and door have slight damage that does not really make it worth swaping into the 35th. So I will be looking for a 35th pass door/ Fender. And still torn if using the header panel and lights from the donor car, or keep looking for a 94 bumper and 96 headlights.

    Lost it's collectiable value? Well only from a one user car with under 1k miles on it it perfect condition. But heck, there is likely less then 10 such cars that exist, if even that many. Otherwise, It's still going to have more value, even if repaired, than any other 90 SC car. In fact, I don't know that I'd ever buy another pre 93 sc unless it was an anniversary edition. I really don't like the Teves Mark II ABS system. Adds considerable ownership costs to one of those cars.
