Let's make this interesting. We have at least two people that want to buy a Cardinal Red XR-7 GT-E.
I have almost the identical GT-E, XR-7, Cardinal Red, Red Interior. I bought it from the original owner. The car came from Katy Texas, then to Arizona. I have the original window sticker and owners manual. It is a running driving car with new fuel tank, lines, new brakes, pads, rotors, flex lines, booster master cylinder wheel cylinders, rear shoes and original turned drums. All belts and hoses replaces and so on. BFG Radial T/A tires. Basically all the stuff that will need to be done to the car Jim bought. Given that, it still needs to be restored.
The similarities run pretty deep. Like Jim's car, the hood and scoop have been cut out. Like Jim's car the original carb is missing (I am running the larger Cobra Jet carb). Like Jim's car, my distributor has been replaced (mine was supposed to be the correct one but the last letter is illegible so assumed to be incorrect.) I do have the original VIN stamped heads but the short block is a later factory replacement with the factory solid lifter cam, and adjustable rocker arms. The original open rear was converted to factory Traction Lok by the original owner.
Let's make this as transparent as possible. Starting bid is $75K all cash. Clear Arizona title in hand. Gentlemen shall we begin?
