-The exterior is the original deep metallic brown, with the padded vinyl half-roof, rare "frenched" rear window, and left and right side-post coach opera lamps.
-Original factory "turbine" style aluminum wheels and fresh Michelin tires with 90%+ road life left on them.
-Equipped with removable 2" tow bar with trailer brake and signal lights connection.
-Fresh tune-up and oil change, with new oil, air, and fuel filters, new distributor cap, rotor, spark plugs, and spark plug wires.
-Starts, runs, and drives GREAT!.
-Car comes with original owners manual, original jack and lug wrench, full size spare tire, spare serpentine belts, spare electronic fuel pump, and a set of factory 1985 Ford Motorcraft shop manuals.
Note: there is a slight impression in driver side back door skin and a small ding on the left rear wheel well trim where someone brushed the car when leaving a parking space next to it. Apparently their bumper slid alongside the "ding strip" because there were no scratches in the paint as you can see in the pictures. Please refer to the photos included in this auction or contact for more details.
