    Here are two that I found:

    A red on red 1984 up in St Cloud, MN, currently asking five grand.

    And a black with grey interior 1985 down in St Louis, which is apparently going for $5500.

    That black one looks like a deal
    They both do!

    Too much for that '84, sheesh. Nice car though. I also love that '94 GMT400 with a plow that they've got for sale. Dig me a two tone truck

    New Jersey car. 86,000 approx. miles, 302 tbi, AOD, A/C, Red leather,power seats with recline. Tilt, cruise, Turbines, am/fm/cassette or am/fm not sure which one as I changed head units. It does have the factory amp. New vinyl top, New head liner. It has been undercoated. Only rust spot that I know of is a spot about a size of a quarter. Not rusted through. Right rear quarter panel at the stainless. I have owned it since about 2003. Had it shipped from NJ to CA.then to ME in 07. It is so smooth when it runs. There is an electrical issue which no "mechanic has fixed" Plenty of money spend and parts thrown at it. It is a broken wire I think. One other issue is a "mechanic put his arm through the driver leather seat bottom. ripping it badly. Would not admit to me he did it. Of course he would not repair it. He was replacing a ignition switch I just replaced and I had told him it was verified good. It has been sitting in my back garage since. I have the shop manuals, repair records since I have owned it. If I can break close to even, it is gone. Have not figured that number out yet. Open to fair market offers. No lowballs, don't need to sell. May have it fixed in the Spring. For further info, pm me.

    The black 85 doesn’t have front markers in lower front fenders
    Is that for all 85 cars looks like a base car?

    The ditch lights were optional stuff for pretty much all years of Ford/Merc box. Some people like them, some prefer the look without. They are moderately useful driving at night.

    I'm definitely one of them. I really like ditch lights when turning. It's nice having the extra light on dark roads. I also use the crap out of my vent windows on the CV. I wish my barge had them too. They're great for when you want just some outside air forced in. (Probably would love them even more if I still smoked. )

    I read you are in Chicagoland. If youíre open to 4 doors there is a blue 1987 CV on OfferUp. I tried to go look at it a few months ago but could never work out a time with the guy.

    I want me the rare & elusive fully loaded Ford two door. Probably '85 as I think that's the last year you could get one with "1" as the VIN's first digit..

    Think a 86/87 Marquis coupe is best for me
