    Wow, a non-A/C car. That's impressive.

    Car looks real nice. The black with red pinstripes always looks good on these cars.

    No air but otherwise well equipped? Interesting for sure.

    Good colors.

    I know I am biased but I think turbines on pre facelift Box Ford is about as understated classy as it gets. I’d still like to unfacelift my cars.

    I like it a lot! Same color scheme as the 82 2 door my family had. That didn't have a/c, either....but that was a pretty basic car all the way around. Didn't even have rear bumper guards or strips.

    I 2nd what Kwolf said. I'd love to see underhood pics of it.

    Very peculiar to see a car with power windows, illuminated entry, uplevel interior, tape deck, rub strips and rear defrost but no A/C or at the least, vent windows. Not to mention on a 2-door. Have you looked into getting a Marti report for it?

    I think this was the car that was for sale off and on for a year or so a while back in the Ailsa Craig and London areas. Glad to see it's making an appearance on here! If I had $$$$ at the time it would be me posting about it! Can't wait to see what adventures it has ahead of it!

    Nice. I agree about the turbines. So damn good looking. I miss mine so much...they didnt fit anymore so off they went after the big brake swap. Compromises.

    you're right it is the same car, basically what happened is the guy I bought the car from is the one who bought it from thechief7373.

    Wrong center caps though, right? Looks like the Mercury emblem..

    Looks correct:

    Hard to see in the Mercury brochure ('83 was the best looking, but still hard to see). They look very similar if not the same.

    87 and older caps are the same for both Ford and Mercury. Lincoln had its own cap. WagonMan

    That I know. I own an '88 Town Car with turbines.

    I've been educated on the Ford & Mercury center cap though.
