Topic: 2K SVT Contour, Santa Rosa, CA $500
I have a 2000 Ford Countour SVT. The car was fun commuter until a deer decided to end it all be ruining into the side of it as I was driving down the road at 60 MPH. The insurance company totaled it and I bought it back and continued driving it for a another year until it developed a pretty bad oil leak. I then handed it off to my son to drive. One thing to note about teenage boys and leaky cars. Unless you explicitly tell them to put oil in the car and check with them on a regular basis that they have, they will not. So it now has a seized motor.
I've decided not to build a Lemons race car right now. I am considering a Lemons Rally car though and this just isn't what I want to spend time on for that event.. It is still a nice car with great racing potential. It handles and brakes great. You can swap in a 3.0 or another 2.5 out of any ford of that era and be up and running in no time. Or rebuild what's there. It has good wheels and tires.
Open to all offers and even possible trades. This is it's last chance for a continued existence. It will be going to the wrecking yard soon. Can you save this car from that doom? It is a rare SVT if that makes any difference.
Thanks and pics are available on SFBAY Craigslist. This is my first post so I can't submit links yet.
