    It has tree sap all over it, paint needs love, body is very good but not perfect as you can see. Pics are from a while ago.

    It's a solid car waiting for a loving home but its time is running out. Get in touch (with me) if you want me to put you in touch with him. It isn't listed for sale anywhere, he's mainly going through me to find him someone for it.
    This car is now in my possession. Its future is unknown.

    That white '89 Town Car in the combo deal is an AHA Formal! Saw its twin four towns over last year, replete with a vinyl top that was basically falling off. Was parked at a mechanics shop so hopefully it was getting the love it needed. Probably the easiest of all the boxes to slicktop, assuming you can have the full size rear glass made for it. Two tone gold '86 is sharp! '91 Town Car ad makes me laugh, 5.4 mod motor wasn't even a thing back then. Obvious neglect and other things make me wonder how much of these list prices is to keep derby folk away and how much is based on crack pipe....

    Good move buying that slate grey '86. If I wasn't tapped out with land yachts and the border was open I'd be seriously considering that one. Eva needs a boxy-box stablemate dammit. Unless job situation continues to improve I'm tapped out until early 2022 at the earliest.
    My fleet:
    '89 Grand Marquis "Ebyt"
    '85 Grand Marquis "Eva"
    '94 Caprice "Kira"
    '92 Crown Victoria saved from death's door. Coming spring 2021.

    Good eye, I agree with you that it is one. The AHA cars are interesting, but not really a driver's car. They are typically stripper models to start with, so it'll be short on many of the options that make the car what we expect it to be. They often have driver seat recline deleted (it can be added back, but it's an invasive surgery). The pull-out rear seat writing tables are a neat novelty that should have been a factory option, as with the repositionable map lights for the rear seats. The roofline looks goofy but also affords more room in the car.

    I think that unlike any of my others, the 86 will pretty much forever be for sale to a good home...so there is nothing final about me grabbing it. But we'll see. There is nothing about that car not satisfied by my others, so it doesn't bring anything new to the table and therefore no new reason to hang onto it long term. But we'll see.

    Sharp car, the 2tone on a Sig is relatively rare not being a Cartier. Looks to be in real nice shape.

    A couple local ones:

    1990 Grand Marquis for sale outside a repair shop in Windsor, Ontario. I have the contact info on-hand, contact me if you want it. It's private sale so I don't want to put their info here for all of eternity.





    Whale Vic LX (06+ I believe?) at J&B Auto Recyclers in Windsor, Ontario. Looks to be pretty good, to me. If not sold whole I am sure it will go into the yard for parts. They are a full-serve yard and I believe participate on Car-Part.

    Nice Medium Woodrose Metallic '90 MGM there. Looks to be out of my price range based on condition. The border still being closed doesn't help even if I could afford it.

    ~ 1991 Mercury Grand Marquis LS "The Scab" - plenty of rot, summer DD

    That silver Vic is 05'. Quarter panel one year only antenna is a giveaway.

    Ah yes, I suppose that does make it an 05.
    The steering wheel and gigantic head restraints are what made me think it was newer.

    They only want $1000 for it. Runs and drives, was driven to the yard.
    I'm going to go take a closer look at it.

    I, of all people, do not need it. But that's really cheap and the body is pretty straight on it. A lot of what keeps me away from the newer cars is their incessant rusting doglegs and front fenders.

    Here's another local Windsor box for sale, sent to me by a friend. I've seen this one around for a while. It's year-round driven, and it shows, wheel arches and rear quarters are a little rough.

    As above I've got the info if someone wants it, but you'd be wise to try for that clean '90 first.

    I do not know the year of the Crown Vic. It seems to have a centre high mount stop lamp, so that would make it an 86-87. If it's older, it's still at least 83+. It will be carb or SEFI, if it was sold new in Canada.

    I do not know the pricing, those would be questions for the people selling them...I have PM'd you their phone numbers.

    $1000 seems like a bargain. You should buy it quickly. It is sad that many people don't want them anymore.

    I looked at it this morning. Took it for a test drive. Great car for the money. Not as unrusty as I had assumed, it's pretty crusty underneath, but not too far gone to be worth $1000.

    HVAC controls don't work properly, I suspect it's that O-ring problem...it won't change modes and just sort of lazily mixes air through all vents.
    Driver door is taken apart, driver window regulator is toast.
    Interior is filthy, they had a dog evidently.
    Needs tires.

    Offer them $800 see what they say. $1000 still isn't bad if you don't mine the fixing up.

    I passed on it. I went over it in detail with a mirror, it's just a little bit too much. Rockers are toast (though they pass cosmetically, the bottom side is gone). Rust levels are just a bit beyond my comfort zone at that price. It's a fair bit rustier than my wagon.

    $500? All day every day. $1000, and having to pay tax on $1000, no. Guy wasn't moving on price at all. His reasoning is that they are not a car lot. He doesn't normally sell whole cars unless they're super clean, and that isn't. The car has well over $1000 of good parts to sell, so I see his point.

    Frame and powertrain were maybe worth it but I am not in a position nor interested currently in frame swapping anything.

    Some crack head will buy it and run it into the ground.
