    Default FS: 1988 Merkur XR4TI (Rare)

    Hey people,

    I'm posting this for a friend of mine. He has a 1988 Merkur XR4TI for sale. For those not familiar, the Merkur was an imported version of the European Ford Sierra. The 1988 and 89 models were especially rare since only 4500 made their way to North America, and very few remain. Here are the specs:

    2 door, 5 speed. Newly rebuilt T9 Transmission with new clutch
    2.3L 4 cylinder turbo charged.
    Power steering, power windows, power door locks, heated seats, sunroof, CD player
    Cosworth wheels with new tires
    K&N Filter
    New turbo back 3" exhaust
    Very clean condition.

    Asking $5700 OBO



    Feel free to PM me or email at [email protected] for more info.
    Cheers

    Drivers side door has two rust bubbles on it. Quoted $300 to fix and repaint. Not a single spot of rust anywhere else.

    Thanks for the compliments guys!

    Car has approximately 150,000KM on it. The speedo cable needs replacing, hence the "approximate" reading. Transmission only has 4000KM on it. It has a fabric interior, not leather. Dash was also replaced with an 89, hence has no cracks and is not faded. All three sensors have been changed, and the exhaust has only 1000KM on it from new.

    Hope that helps.

    3" straight pipe exhaust (no collector) from the turbo back coupled with a K&N and large diameter air vein create that rumble. Some like it, others don't! Different strokes for different folks I suppose!!
