Topic: 1988 Merkur XR4Ti with Mustang 5.0 for sale in NorCal $2,500 obo

Price reduced- must sell, make offer.

Race a real lemon, not a cheaty BMW!

This car has been in many Lemon's races, and even finished a few!   Fast with many upgrades.  A blast to drive.  Needs a fire suppression system installed to race.

My team bailed out on me due to life changes and I need to sell this car.  It's a great deal for a team looking for another car or a new team.  The car is tight, engine runs great.

Many upgrades, here's a few-
Junkyard Mustang 302- runs strong!
New Ford Racing Tremec T-5 transmission (we kept blowing up junkyard units)
New Eaton Limited Slip Diff (no more massive one-leggers around every corner, drifting!)
New Holley 2-barrel circle track carb
New Ground Control front coil overs
New rear springs and shocks
New poly diff mount
Upgraded poly suspension bushings
Upgraded rear brakes
Cosworth rear sway bar
Accusump system
Cool Suit System
Hans device
Homemade strut brace
Upgraded one piece Mustang driveline and adapter
2 full sets of tires and rims (8 each) 225/50R-16 FALKEN AZENIS RT615K+ S

Interested? Let me know.  The car is in the East Bay.

Car has been in 10+ races and even finished 4 or 5.  Most of the problems that kept us from finishing have been resolved.  I will brief interested buyers on what I think needs to happen to make this car a serious contender!

I also cannot accept that I will not race again and would be willing to participate in the first race to get your team off on the right foot!

I'd like to hear more on both topics. I am a very iffy buyer, but I love this thing. Must be super fun to drive.
