Very clean and pretty looking CS, hope you get what you are asking for. Just FYI, if you have a Marti report or a letter from Ford confirming the options/CS package you may want to consider posting that as well. Good Luck!

...I agree on the Marti Report. Especially with the side reflector not present below script in one of the photos, but WOW! Beautiful car!! Best of luck! :-)

Wow Tim,
I hadn't noticed the reflector not showing. Strange though, the 1st photo (left side full view) has the reflector. The 3/4 rear view, its not visible. Same dates on the photos. Lighting?
The car looks great.

Very good looking car, and it looks like a lot of work went into it. I hope you can get $45K, and I never say never, but you are really facing a strong headwind in these economic times trying to get top dollar for it.

There are way too many cars out there where the sellers are trying to recover their costs, and they are coming up with empty pockets.

The pictures were taken at different times. That rear quarter panel had been hit and the reflector was broken. After the body work and the paint I took a pic and then when I received the reflector and put it on along with some other chrome pieces I took more photos.

I don' have a photo since I replaced all the dash pieces. All the photos that I had were before. I will take one and post it. I had the seats redone in black suede with dark green piping and that was a big mistake because the suede has begun to fade in the Az sun. I know it is alot to ask for the car I am in no hurry to sell it and I hope that eventually I will receive an offer.
