91 (cant remember) xr2 in NC very sad!!
« on: April 05, 2021, 06:25:35 PM »



I have a very very tragic story!!! Purchase this new in 91(I think) ..Anyway it have around 15K miles and basically sat outside and deteriorated. The soft top started to spit..I had many car covers on it over the years and tarp the top to attempt to "save it"...Original tires wheels etc- on year my father tired to start it up..Changed batterys and tired to boost start it up...Didint go well the wipers started to come on under "boost" high amps... We remove the top fuel filter to try to remove fuel from it without luck...The body need paint from the tarp rubbing on it .


Basically wasted away...Anyone interested in this?? I am in south of Raleigh nc area..

Pretty sure its a 93 (xr2)

I have the Tonneau Cover that was never used..The plastic clips were put on the car. The storage bag slight mildew on it. The Tonneau cover is in seem pretty flexable and new..   The hardtop which stored inside and on the rack with the cover over it. It stuck behind other stuff- the top was put on maybe 3 times-so should be pretty nice also.

Some pictures taken...

Thank you-but not right now- I believe the junk yard will come pick it up and give me much more for it.  I was hoping a hobbiest would benefit

Well, I'll go $150. I'm guessing all the tires are flat.

They are the original tires on it- and these wheels....

https://www.ebay.com/itm/274609468197?fits=Year%3A1993%7CModel%3ACapri%7CSubmodel%3AXR2%7CMake%3AMercury&hash=item3feffff325:g:r8cAAOSwz-df042p

This vehicle is not molested -the body has no known damage. The fuel filter on top was removed to pull fuel out (short of that).

I used to add air to tires and they would slowly bleed down - it has those original low profile tires on it.  I hate to let the junk yard come pick it up - With the hardtop Nice (which has been stored) and tonneau cover inside.

 I see ebay junk Yard parting these out. Wow ebay sellers have the hardtop listed at $700 with $200 shipping!??! WOW?!??

I currently have the car on one half of my gravel driveway-so it should be pretty easy to retrieve (depending on skill and proper equipment) -

I just sold my top with stand and tools for $250 and thought that was pretty good.  Running cars in the condition you're talking about usually go for $400 to $500. Good luck.

What you got for your hardtop seems "right" for what it is?!!  Maybe the crazy part prices are insurance work?!?! The rest of the body parts seem expected reasonable that I am seeing-ok well the rear spoiler wings seem expensive also

Thank you.   Some of the parted out stuff seems crazy high. _$199 for one wheel without center cap!?!!   I just did a online "remove my car" where you put in the info (zip,running or not,tires-,title -no title etc)...It came out that they would come pick it up on flatback and pay me $355.-without anything but the car only!?!  I am unsure if they crush the perfectly straight car,part it out of what?!?  The little turbo engine should not me that hard to get running with the stupidly low miles on it . 

Maybe I will just sell the hardtop with stand- the tonneau cover. Then have the junk yard come for it -just seems like a waste. -Anyway thanks

The three spoke wheels with caps usually go for most of that, but cheap without.  That's a big price for a JY around here to give.  I got $150 for a Chevrolet Caprice.  Getting it running would probably require injectors or at least cleaning, fuel filters, new fuel and maybe a new fuel pump. The alcohol they put in gas really messes up the fuel system when left overtime.
