Re: 1985 XR4Ti only 19,000 miles

Is this car in Ohio by chance? If yes, did your dad work at Lincoln-Mercury?

UPDATE: This was not the car I was thinking about, its a darker red and not in Ohio.
For anyone interested in the geographical location, this one is in Kentucky.

Re: For Sale: XR Red Koni Struts - Newly Rebuilt by Koni

I think the Bilstein B8 (for lowered suspension) are still available, but the Bilstein B4 and B6 for stock height are NLA.
Koni Reds and Yellows both NLA.

The chicken here is really good, and yes, that's a fairly accurate portrayal of average residents.

Re: Wanted XR4TI that is very nice and automatic

I am scouting for a car I had a long time ago or one that looks just like it. I had a 1986 double spoiler XR4TI car that was black with the sunroof and grey leather in an automatic? but I will consider any color and also a stick. Looking for a very nice driver or a cream puff? low mileage or restor...

If the car is an 1985-1988 automatic that port is capped off from the factory.

Re: Anyone else have an Oxford Blue interior car?

That blue cloth is unique to (select) 1985 cars only. The "window pane" cloth is unique to 1985 cars only and is mostly light gray. Blue came in select cars with blue exterior. Pretty rare blue interior.

Also, could you elaborate on what "ReTimed 18°out" means? I have some concerns about that. Probably re-time it as the previous owners had it 18° out (of time). To the original poster, welcome! :cheers If your 1986 has a "late" oil pan (all the bolt heads are the same size) the 1...
