:freddie: r-u comming up here this weekend?
« on: June 17, 2010, 11:37:12 PM »
I ask because I am thinking about taking a ride up north a tad to look at a 89 or 90 supercharged XR7 (they do not know which it is).  Here is the ad:

Up for sale is a 1990 mercury cougar xr7W/ 3.8 supercharged V6 W/ 4 spd auto w/ overdrive and limited slip diff. w/ 373 ratio. Car is in overall good condition but has a problem with shutting down sometimes.  pretty solid some surface rust.  And has push button start. he lost the keys so it starts with a button also has keyless entry so doors can still be locked  car is red in color and has black int. $650 obo or may consider trades. Thank you for reading.

No camera so no pictures.

Should I look or not?
The 5.4 swap has been called a bad idea, and considered an underpowered considerable waste of time, since 2007.

Nice to see that most donít think that anymore.

I talked to the owner and he said it was his Sons car and now he has it.  He has no good place for it so he wants to sell it.  He says:

1.  The body is straight.
2.  The interior is good it has one crack on the drivers side seat and a small crack on the dash.  Common stuff.
3.  He rebuilt the ABS last year and it works fine.
4.  It shifts hard.  Sounds like it has a shift kit? Or a TV cable issue.  No biggie I have a spare trans.
5.  It has an auto trans which is good for me since I have a freshly rebuilt spare in my SC.
6.  It randomly stalls going down the highway and sometimes at a light.  Could be the DIS or the fuel pump?  Any ideas?
7.  has new headlights installed.
8.  Was well taken care of.
9.  It sat for 1 year but he is now driving it.
10.  140k miles.

I purchased a mirror and am bringing a high powered LED flash light.  If the quarters and floor are rust free I will get the car.

I do not know but I am sure I can swap a few things over form my SC and make one great car.  If I get it the plan will be to swap over the good stuff from the SC then sell the SC for parts or sell the parts and scrap the body.  Then I will need a crappy set of rims and bad tires to put on the car.  I hate to get rid of any of my anniversary rims and the XR7 rims.

I am excited.  Will call you tomorrow afternoon.

They made less 90 Auto XR7's than 35th Anny Auto T-Birds.  Gotta pick one so the classier one will win.  Besides the XR7 is better and the 35th is worth more parted:

1.  Gotta admit, Cougars are classy.
2.  It is just as fast as a SC.  This XR7 is the last fast stock Cougar made.  After that they were luxury cars!
3.  It does not get q-panel rust like the SC since it does not have the trim.
4.  It can be driven up a ramp.  No more lifting it with a floor jack to change the oil.
5. The body on my XR7 is 50 times better than my 35th.  The 35th needs some welding love and I ain't a welder.  The XR7 can be made show worthy much faster and with less cash.
6.  I can sell the 35th specific trim, engine and transmission, put the rear half shafts in my 97, then grab the rest for spares and junk the body and make enough money to pay for the XR7 plus extra for beer...

Oh boy is this car DIRTY!  The last owner worked in a quarry and must have preserved the car in a 1/2" of dirt and muck.  The car is going to take two to three full interior and exterior cleanings just to find the surface...
