    Hmmm, semi-literate seller who has done some work on it.
    Looks okay, but who knows what the underside is like.

    The listing says "Reserve not met". Why doesn't ebay just list the mysterious reserve as the starting bid?

    Thanks I know it's worth has much has someone is willing to pay like the 60s and 70s cars à few years ago.
    It's just a escort or a exp but to someone it's his dream car of his teenage years or its his first car and he would want one back.

    Imo any EXP that is in far shape is a 2k car. These are supper rare and I know I willingly paid about 2500$ for a barely running 88 with a regular escort cfi motor and interior.

    The problem with less popular cars (like the EXP or Escort GT) is that there are only a few enthusiasts like us interested in them enough to pay a lot of money, and if we are thousands of miles away, it adds a lot of cost and difficulty to get the car.

    And with the US / Canada border more or less closed to ordinary travellers, it isn't even possible for us in the Great White North to travel down to retrieve a car and drive it back.

    There seems to be a lot of funny business that goes on with ebay auctions of collector cars.
    And yes, I consider that EXP a collector car.
