    Just bought the nicest SC around!

    He guys! New to the forum but not new to SuperCoupes. I just found a gem! I seen it in the paper, 89 SC 47k miles original owner, make offer.
    So I went to look at it and the guy who owned it was in his 80s. He has all the original documents.

    Its Twilight blue with Shadow blue interior. Non leather and its also an auto, but I couldnt pass on one of the nicest SC's in the country. Body only has 1 little ding. It needs to be waxed and polished. It has always been garage kept and never driven in rain or snow. The car was a toy for them. Interior is showroom perfect!

    Here's some pics for your viewing pleasure.

    I'd leave it unmolested and just give it a good once over detailing. Beautiful car! TXSC would be proud!

    This car will stay 100% original. The paint is in excellent condition. It has some swirl and a few little scratches, but nothing below the paint. Should polish out nice.

    I just cant believe I found this car. I have been looking since my last 89 blew head gaskets, and I didnt have money at the time to fix it, so I gave it to my nephew.

    This car will get head gaskets replaced before they blow.

    The other thing I worry about is the breaking system. It went out in my last 89 also and I replaced it with the vac booster type. That was the biggest ~~~~!!!

    Congrats Dave looks amazing! Oddly enough it looks just like my first SC which was a 90 5 speed at the time I didn't realize how many less blue ones there were.

    It pretty much was for me.lol I'm a huge lover of these cars. Probably because I grew up around them.

    The other cars in my stable are 91, 92, 98 Tauras SHO's all low miles. A 2013 F150 EcoBoost with full bolt ons. So you can see I'm a Ford addict.
