    We have a good running 1984 Charcoal Turbo RS with T-Tops! 5- speed manual transmission, power features [windows, door locks].. low original miles, clean title. It runs and drives, shifting through all gears, but this car sat for quite some time and needs some attention.

    The Capri RS Turbo that was only available in charcoal upper-silver lower exterior paint with light grey striped rub mouldings, Garret 60 trim turbocharger, enhanced multiport EFI four-cylinder engine, Michelin TRX package, 5.0 HO Sway bars, 3.45:1 limited slip rear axle, hood scoop, and orange and red lettering and striping. Sun- and T-top roof were optional.

    The vehicle came into our possession as an impound. We are not mechanics, so we have limited information about the vehicle. Its totally complete and comes with a second set of aftermarket wheels if you like.

    Vehicle is no longer in the DMV system. When we contacted them, they said there are no back fees owed, would only require smog and payment of current fees [less than $200]. It is being stored at our warehouse so anytime is good to view. This is a lien sale vehicle so price is negotiable. The title is clean and we will provide you with the complete lien sale package. Give us a call and lets make a deal!

    THIS IS A TOW YARD SALE, VEHICLE IS BEING SOLD AS-IS so price is very negotiable. THIS VEHICLE WILL REQUIRE SMOG check by the buyer. WE WILL NOT PROVIDE THE SMOG CHECK CERTIFICATION. We recycle our vehicles every other Friday so this is scheduled to be gone by 1l/16 if not purchased. Our wholesale account offered $917, but based on condition we'd rather sell to someone who could use a good running car or willing to flip it. Either way, it has to be sold soon.

    Too bad. Friday or it's gone. Price is very negotiable by the looks of it.

    The pulleys are spinning, so it ran long enough to take some pictures.

    This is exactly why good cars get scrapped here in CA. If I did not just buy a similar one, I would consider this one. It’s only 20 minutes from my house.

    I bet they'd take $1500, maybe less... Factor in $1000 for shipping, at $2500 that's not a bad deal. Might need to consult the help of a member local to this in order to make the whole thing happen since the shipping thing can take awhile.

    I'd kill for that, but it's about as far from me as you can get and still be in the continental U.S.
