    Default Another 84GT joins the Stable

    Last week I added another 84Gt to my collection of 84GT's, this now gives me a Hardtop,T-top and Sunroof trio with 3 different colors and all wearing their original paint. This car first appeared in September of 2016 on craigslist local to me but I didn't go look at the car at the time. Early April of 2017 it then turned up again and I decided to take a look at it, I liked it but we couldn't agree on a price at the time and the owner sold it to a friend of his. In December of 2017 I regretted not buying the car so I put a wanted ad on Craigslist hoping to locate the car again and I got a response from the same guy who had the car in April telling me he owns the car again, so we made a deal last week and I brought the car home. The car has kind of a sad story behind it, it was bought new in Boyerstown Pa and actually never left the area. The original owner started modifying the car back in the 80's with subframe connectors,koni's c/c plates, 8.8 rear, FMS short block with SVO aluminum heads,WC T-5 and other odds and ends. In 1996 he committed suicide and the car sat outside till 99 until the widow moved the car into the garage where it then sat till she passed in 2016. The kids didn't know what to do with the car so they sold it to their local mechanic when then listed it on craigslist. The car was ordered with only 2 options, premium sound and a sunroof. No rear defrost, no power,ac or tilt wheel. It has 89k miles on it currently. I'm already in the process of giving the car a new life, here are some pics.

    Looks nice, Joe.

    If it has premium sound that means it has/had an optional 'stereo' radio. (Premium sound was not available with the standard AM radio.) I also see at least three other options: tinted glass, vinyl seats, interval windshield wipers.
    Buck Tag Decoder
    Owner Card Decoder

    VIN Decoder

    FEP Registries: Black Magic & Crimson Cat / Cobra / Dominator / G.T.350 / LTD LX/Police & Marquis LTS / M81 / Pace Car / Predator / Saleen / Turbo GT & Turbo RS / Twister II

    Wanted (Dead or Alive): VINs, door tags, buck tags, build sheets, window stickers, owner cards, transmission tags, axle tags

    The vinyl seats weren’t from this car, I put those in to sell the 85gt seats that were in it, this had the base seats in it. I already sent you the door tag last year, I’ll send you the buck tag also.

    Looks like a great addition to your stable. All three are awesome looking. Hope to see them in person some day. Glad you were able to get it this time after not being able to the first time around. Amazing the same guy had it back and saw your ad. Must have been meant to be.

    one suggestion ...... if you dare to blow that seat apart you can use a product called "tear mender" or contact adhesive along with denim to repair the seat. pull the rip together as best you can, and apply the patch to the back of it using the old "cohesive" method. works like a champ. Then put it back together.

    Love the car. enjoy it!
