    Default 1985 ASC McLaren 5.0 SC Roadster 5.0/AT $2800 OBO

    1985 ASC McLaren 5.0 SC Roadster
    5.0/Auto
    ASC White w/ blue top and interior
    97,000 original miles
    $2800/OBO

    I moved to a smaller house last fall and have too many projects for the space that I have.

    I bought the car in 2004 from the previous owner who owned the car for 7-8 years. He had found it sitting under a tree and rescued it. He replaced the hood and had a new top and carpet installed while he owned it. The top still looks like new. He said that he had garaged it the entire time that he owned it. Since he had a 6 car tandem garage (3 bay, two deep) I had no reason to doubt him.

    The car has been a garage queen during my ownership, putting about on about 1200 miles since I bought it. I completed the brake upgrade started by the previous owner to Lincoln/SVO 5-lug 4wheel disk shortly after I bought it. The entire brake system was replaced; SVO master and proportioning valve, new calipers, slotted rotors, all new hoses. The rear end sports 3.73 gears donated by an SVO Mustang. It currently sports 16” Mark VII LSC BBS wheels.

    The stock Recaro seats were worn out so I installed a set of Tbird Turbo Coupe seats. I still have the seat mounting rails for the Recaros that can be included with the car. Sadly, the seats themselves are long gone

    Although the car sits in the garage most of the year, it starts right up without any hesitation. In the past couple of years, the water pump, battery, and alternator have been replaced. New speakers and stereo were added last summer as the original one was missing

    The bad:

    • The previous owner ‘fixed’ several places where pinhole rust was forming in the passenger side floor with ¾” to 1” rubber plugs. There is also a spot in the passenger foot well where it looks like someone used a floor jack to lift the car and tore the floor board. The floor is still strong; it just needs to be properly patched. I recoated the floors with POR15 and had intended to replace the passenger floor but my 79 Coupe became a priority.
    • The rear bumper is cracked and the front bumper has a location where a tear was repaired. I have another front and rear bumper covers that I will include in the purchase. The front bumper was repainted with a different shade of white after the repair
    • A/C needs a recharge.
    • The steering wheel leather is worn in the 12 o’clock position. It is the same leather wrapped wheel that was used on the SVO. The car does have the roadster specific ’5.0 SC’ horn pad installed.
    • The hood was replaced by the previous owner and is a different shade white than the rest of the car. The entire car was repainted at some point it it's life after leaving ASC


    Parts that I will include with the sale are: Capri headlight panel, reproduction tonneau applique, Recaro seat mounts, front & rear bumper covers, tail light lenses, and some other trim parts. I also will include the Marti report and Eminger invoice for the car.

    The car is a typical 30 yo car with squeaks and rattles that is inherent in a car that has had its roof removed. It could be a respectable weekend cruiser with very little work.

    I would like this to go to a good home.

    That looks like a very fair deal, Marty. If you can't find a buyer lickety-split, something is wrong in the car world.

    Robert, I am with you on this one, but most likely the problem is that it is an 85, not an 86 with real fuel injection.

    Has this car been advertised in SoCal (here in LA, or in San Diego)? Or really anywhere that's year-round for a convertible? It's a great car, and awesome price. I cannot imagine it wouldn't be grabbed quickly, with the right audience of potential buyers.

    Not yet... not even Craigslist or ebay. But it will get some more exposure in a few weeks as I plan to ramp up the advertising. I am putting my house on the market and would like to have one less car in the garage.

    It would be a helluva road trip. I'll even drive you to the airport. You can get a direct flight practically anywhere from DFW and/or Love Field.

    The funny thing is the car was originally ordered by Dellen Lincoln Mercury in Indianapolis (per the Marti report). It would be like going home.

    WOW. Small world. I once went to Arizona for a Dayton Ram. It was quite an adventure. I did a fly and drive.

    Unfortunately for me I don't have the time to come after this one right now. This is essentially the same motor as the 85 GT isn't it? Holley 4bbl, headers?

    I looked in your album. It really is a great looking unique piece, if I find myself out west for any reason this year (if you still have it) we can talk!

    Nice. Definitely a different look with familiar underneath for me. I have owned one Capri and it wasn't a stellar experience. Really just a car that needed more work than I could do on it at the time.
