The previous owner took the timing cover off because it had a miss. He found the timing chain to be in good shape and then forgot about the car. That was in 1998.

It is nice inside, new (in 1998) set upholstery from Ken's Cougars. Has a dime sized rust hole in the right rear quarter in the front of the wheelwell. Vinyl top is bad. It is missing the special "G" mirror and hood pins. Otherwise all in good shape, needs a paint job. The exhaust looks new, 2 1/4" with Walker turbo mufflers. Tires and wheels are new, in 1998.

Will see what the engine is like inside this week, I will pull it out.

That's great Royce.....congratulations. Glad you made it back home in one piece. Does your new "G" have a sunroof? Looking forward to seeing it sometime soon.

You know Royce, if you really wanted an 'X' code XR7 we coulda worked out a trade for one of them GT-Es...:)

In any event, welcome to that eXclusive eXceptional group of X owners. This is the ONLY place where reference to an 'ex' is allowed :)

Does this one include a power moonroof option?
