I'm posting this up to see if there is any interest - ill say I despise ads for "testing the waters" on a sale, but here's the deal: I have a chance to purchase back a car that had been in my family for almost 30 years. if I can possibly sell this im going to buy it back. with that being said, I don't "have" to sell this, im not looking for trades, lowball offers, or to part it out. theres a link to my build thread at the bottom if you want to see how the car got put together. I'm located in northern NJ, but can help deliver the car within a reasonable distance if necessary.
81 ford Fairmont station wagon
purchased from the 2nd owner last year - odometer read 77,000 miles (im thinking its more like 177K). originally had an I6/automatic. low option car with only a/c. I bought it to build a cool kind of sleeper/driver so it has some "patina" and imperfections (basically I wanted it to look kinda junky)

pretty much stock, has autometer gauges hidden in the glovebox, and a digital shiftlight/tach tucked in the corner of the windshield/a-pillar area painted red to match the interior. the carpet is kinda beat, the b-pillar trim is also kinda beat, the headliner was replaced at some point, the seats are pretty mint, all in all its average(which is what I was going for)
basically I just finished the car, got it tuned, have driven it maybe 250 miles so far. its definitely quick and if I still have it when the track opens ill definitely run it a few times.
theres a few small things that could be changed - currently the ECM is on the passenger floor, I was planning to extend the harness and hide it under the seat(still may do that if I get a free weekend soon). also it had a/c, the evaporator is still in the car and could be removed to save some weight or you could possibly add the a/c back in if you wanted. there are 2 small rust spots in the front floor area, there is also a little rust on the drivers rear door and some bubbling on the rear 1/4 area.
