92 super coupe

Was looking at this car. I think it is a $500.00 special. Not running. Guy says
the lower rad hose blew. ( i've NEVER seen a lower rad hose blow ). No
pressure. The lower fitting on the inter cooler looks pretty greasy. 258320 K.M. Rust on upper rear right wheel well. Rust on upper left rear wheel well.
Rust perferation on lower inside wheel house into the rocker panel area. The
hole is big enough to put 3 fingers in. Broken wind shield. Tires are about 30% left. He said he replaced the rear half shafts and front springs. supposedly everything else works. Has the factory C.D. player. Most of these don't.
He won't take less than $1300.00. He says it runs or did run until the coolant
sprayed all over the hood and windshield. says it was shut down immediatly
and towed home. Who knows. Interior is fair for the mileage. I'm thinking of
walking away. Any other ideas out there. I don't think the car is worth 1300.
I can get 2 S.H.O.'s for 1300 bucks. 1989-90 mtx. I'll leave this open to all
the better Tbird owners out there. Is this thing worth 1300 bucks ?

Moved to the Thunderbird section.

There's pressure throughout the whole cooling system including the bottom hose.

I have never seen a bottom hose blow. I'm thinking if it was just a simple hose replacement why didn't the owner just fix it?

Sounds like a $200.00 special to me, I'd walk away

Re: 92 super coupe

I'm thinking the same thing. He wants me to buy it not running. NOT. He said he will tow
it to my home for free. Something doesn't sound right. I've been in this business too long. I don't think i've ever seen or heard of a S.C. in a collectors forum. i think i'll look at
the S.H.O's. Thing is they are still a 4 door sedan. Nice sleeper though. thanks for your
prompt responce. Any others out there please chim in.

Re: 92 super coupe

i wouldnt buy it either.the blue book for those in fair running condition is $1,225. I never heard of someone offering to have a car towed for free.They usually take less money for u to tow it.it would cost more to replace parts and price of car than the car is worth.And body work can get very very expensive. Walk
