    Default My Twister II

    This is my 85 Twister II, my best friends dad bought it brand new and i have been around it since i was a kid and was finally able to buy it this weekend. Its a 5-speed t-top car and im waiting on some more of the paperwork but i believe it is also a 3.08 optioned car. It only has 11k original miles

    I will get better pics one i clean it up good, it has been sitting a long time

    Congrats. Looks like a nice ride. Looking forward to seeing some of the paperwork. There were thirteen made with 3.08. All thirteen were Bright Red and all thirteen had a 4V carb and T-5 five-speed. Ten were originally ordered by one dealer (five with T-roof, five with solid roof).

    That is beautiful, i couldnt be more jealous of you right now. It sounds like you have paid your dues waiting for the car, so congrats on finally getting her. One of the rarest foxes out there and in beautiful, low mileage condition, with a ttop to boot. Well played sir.
    Cheers!

    thats unfortunate, i hope you can return it to its glorious stock condition. A rare limited edition car deserves it.

    If the motor can be made to look like a stock motor again, I think it is no big deal.

    Definitely want to see more pictures even if you haven't cleaned the car up yet!

    Then we can see the before and after "revival"

    Good to see another Twister, and another owner from Kansas City. What area of K.C. are you in?

    I think it's a cool car. When he was asking $13K, I thought it was too high. He ended up coming down to a more reasonable figure though. I'm sure you did alright. A lot of people only want original cars. Don't let anyones comments bother you. There are cars for everyone.
    I am just north of you. I am just north of 152 highway/N. Oak. Maybe I will see you at some car shows. Enjoy the car!

    Congratulations! Looks great! How about adding a photo album and tell us the story about this car and what makes it a Twister?

    Whats the history on the car? What dealership was it purchased from originally? Can you take a closer picture of the old ignition box, not the red MSD. Almost looks like one of the FMS/MSD boxes. Does it have long tube headers?

    If it is indeed one of the 3.08 cars, there is a high probability that it came from Summit Ford. That was the dealer that ordered the 10 with 3.08 (five w/ T-roof, 5 w/ solid roof).

    I think I see long tube headers in one of the pics from the old craigslist ad.
