Hey Fellahs,

I know these have been offered previously at various times, but knowing how much we all love a nice (and not quite as nice) GTE I figured I'd post them up.

Dig for the older threads and I'm sure you will find where they have all been discussed previously.

Green XR7 GTE for $110k in Indiana.

65K seems very reasonable if the car is actually in as good of shape as it looks/sounds.

The $65K car I believe is not numbers matching. Someone correct me if I'm wrong. I looked into buying it, but chose my Wellington blue car instead, At the time I looked at it it had a 390 under the hood and the seller said he would intall a 427 from a Cobra kit car he had in it if I bought it. I have lots of pics of this car taken at that time.

The Mustangs Unlimited car seems to have come down a lot, as I recall. Wasn't it closer to a hundred K? After the infamous red GT-E sold?

Yeah, i think the MU car was more like $125k, IIRC.

Don, the ad on the $65K GT-E says it has an original 427 service block W code in it now. The 3rd pic on the bottom has a W (it's upside down) on the block and just above it is the date code, but I can't quite read it. Don, btw what color interior did it have in it when you looked at it? John

Also, the Green GT-E XR-7 was previously owned by John Baumann.
