Post by Trixie » 16 May 2018, 21:24

Saw this today, a little over priced in my opinion.

When the paint and body was done the rear side marker lights and COUGAR script were removed. Missing the COUGAR script on the decklid too. To make the car correct most of the interior will need replaced. The seats, door panels, rear side panels, console inlay, dash panels are all XR-7, not the correct decor style interior with the correct camera case dash panels.

Yeah, this one has changed hands a few times in recent years. I agree with Randy about the incorrect items. Underside pics also show "subframe connectors" added as well. I would think these things would hold this one back from being an easy sell, let alone at $46k! It took John Skinner 2 years of casual listings to find a buyer. Maybe these guys will be able to sell it with some big listings and hype?

Interesting that the seller calls out all the Eliminator equipment in their listing, but don't mention that none of the interior items are actually included in the car. Intentional? Do they even know the difference?
