I have a ton of them, but I'll limit it to the most "telling" for now. As you will see, there are some "issues" with the car. See how many you can find!

Here's that famous XR-7 interior!

Just look how well maintained this car has been. (Joke)

The spacious back seat "theatre"

I didn't know I was buying a car with "surround sound!"

Last one...

Just for laughs, here's the dash. NOTE: Anybody got one for sale?

Okay, so here's the deal...

I bought this car because the one I already have is pretty well complete. It isn't that I'm a glutton for punishment, but I wanted to get my hands a little dirty and learn something about restoration. So maybe this car isn't QUITE as nice as it was advertised to be and maybe it isn't QUITE an XR-7, but it will be someday. All it needs is a new interior, new exterior trim, new wheel covers, a new top, a paint job, a tune up, and about a thousand hours of work, but that's all!

72 'vert

Chas,

I have a set of white front XR-7 seats, small repairable seam rip in drivers seat bottom. Also have a white conv top (almost new when taken off wrecked parts car). Also have good uncracked black dash pad.

If you're going to Columbus maybe we could meet?

Go ahead, you can say it (John would!) "even if it IS a 72..."

I won't be going to Columbus, but I'll make you a deal--
Take my ragcat, duplicate your 'nator clone in 'vert (at your expense :eek2: ) and you can keep it for a year after finishing!!:biggrn2:

OK. For a '72...

actually, I followed this one on ebay. Congrats in getting it. I'm kind crazy about ragtops, even if they are post '70.
