Description for Mercury XR4Ti 1988

Up for sale is my 1988 Merkur XR4Ti. I like to think of it as a survivor as these cars are getting harder and harder to find not completely trashed. This is a California car that I bought on Craigslist and drove it back to Colorado. It had been sitting in a garage for the last 3 years in the hot California desert. I have gone though the major leaks and have replaced a number of items to get it road worthy. It recently passed Colorado Emissions with flying colors on the first try.
The main issues with the car currently are really typical XR4Ti problems:1. No heater currently. I have flushed the core but am still not getting heat. The car regulates temp fine so I am guessing that the core needs to be replaced.2. Tach works intermittently3. Gas Gauge does not work (gas light and all other lights do)4. No AC compressor currently installed5. Two small blemishes in the passenger seat where the seam has separated. Scrape on drivers seat.6. Tiny crack on the dash that I didn't even notice until taking the pics
The Good things:1. Paint is in great shape with only a few small dents and dings2. I have checked it up and down for Rust and cannot find any, even under the flares and rockers look good. Note: I have not removed the rocker panel plastic to look underneath but in the spots where you can see under it I see no rust at all.3. Interior is in great shape minus the small things noted.4. Starts right up even when its 10* outside5. Shifts smooth and drives very nice6. 65K original miles!7. Two sets of wheels (ones pictured and a set of "bandaids") both with tires.8. Comes with a bi-wing (note its broken and you will need an early pre-88 hatch).
