[FS] 1997 Ford Aspire 4cyl 5spd Cold A/C 92k mi Eastern PA

I ran across another car I wanted so I am going to sell the 'Xspire'.
1997 Ford Aspire
4cyl 5spd Cold A/C only 92k miles
Pa Inspected (thru 1/09)
Runs Great w/ no Check Engine Light
Lots of recent Maintenance as this was my MPG Project Car
Will make an excellent every day driver!
Recent Maintenance with in the past 6 months includes:
New Timing Belt/Tensioner
New Waterpump
FMS Lightweight Flywheel
New Clutch (Disc, Pressure Plate & Bearings)
Festiva Final Drive Gear Ratio installed in Transaxle(3.77 compared to the Aspire's 4.05)
New Control Arms/Ball Joints
New Sway Bar Bushings
New Axles (Both)
New Front Brakes/Rotors
New Front Wheel Bearings/Seals
New Rear Wheel Bearings/Seal
New Rear Brake Shoes
13x5.5 Alloys
New Tune-Up Parts (Cap/Rotor/Plugs/Filters)
New Battery
Synthetic Oil Change (although almost due for a new one)
Synthetic Trans Oil Change
I have gotten exceptional fuel mileage from this car. The Festiva Final Drive really helps with this (although the speedometer/odometer is now slightly off). Driving it gingerly on the highway, I have achieved in excess of 45mpg. Using a lot of EOC I was over 50mpg. This is almost 'best case' and will vary according to driving conditions & methods. You should easily achieve 35-40mpg w/o hypermiling.
Engine does not make any abnormal noises or smoking.
Transmission and clutch opperate properly.
Brakes are new, but sporadically exhibit a slight squeal/squeak from the front.
Front tires are very good...Rear are marginal, but should pass inspection.
Vehicle is currently in primer (see pics) and needs paint. (Maaco can take care of that ;))
The body is in good average condition with some blemishes - see pics.
Front bumper cover was replaced due to a 'bump' from the previous owner.
No rust through (even on rear 1/4s)
Interior is in average used condition w/ stains on headliner and carpets.
Glass is all good w/ no cracks
Rear lip spoiler is missing.
Passenger side mirror was removed.
Rear seat and cargo cover are removed (for utility) but are included with vehicle.
The vehicle should need very little work over the next few years as I have already replaced most all the wear parts. The only item it will probably need within the next year will be the exhaust as it is exhibiting a slight leak.
This car is priced to sell at $1800 OBO and will be put on Ebay this Sunday if there is no interest here. Cash only (except I will allow up to $500 via PayPal - Must have in account or funds must clear prior to pick up).
Vehicle is located in Perkasie, Pa 18944 and you will need to pick it up. No delivery available. Title must be transferred at a local notary prior to taking the vehicle. I have described the vehicle honestly and to the best of my ability. Vehicle is Sold As-Is with no warranties written or implied.

This EcoModded Vehicle is 'Turn Key' and Ready to Go! I would not hesitate to drive this vehicle across the Country!

I really shouldn't say...I may get banned from the site ;)

It isn't a fuel saver by any means, but I have been keeping an eye out for a reasonably priced one for a while. I pick it up tomorrow. It's a 1998 Ford Crown Vic Interceptor (Ex-Police Vehicle). Don't worry, I still have a few economy vehicles in my fleet. :o

I have personally seen this car and it does run good and quiet too. There may me a video with it on the Meet thread.
