    Wile the car looks rather nice. 7k is too much even with the somewhat rare sunroof. Dash is most likely crack and it could be a lot less dirty. 5k would still be pushing it.
    Still don't get me wrong, how often does a GT come up for sale that looks that nice.

    everything is overprice with you!

    maybe you don't have the love for escorts that some of us do.

    do you know why the 70's muscle car sold for a very high price?...because people where willing to pay to get the car the had has a teen or the car they grew up with there Dad's owning.

    I can agree with that. I still think this car is over priced myself. If the interior was nicer I can see 5k but to me its a 3-4k car.

    Plenty of Escorts on Facebook Marketplace that aren't overpriced. This is the same person who was asking $7500 for a car that he recently bought for $750, and accepted $2500 for. Don't confuse dream selling price with actual market pricing.

    The rule is supply and demand.

    so it sold for 2500$? that is a steel.

    "want to get scammed or sold a rust bucket?"

    That's an important reason to inspect a car in person, but that reduces the potential buyers quite a bit. The time and travel expense will really add to the cost of the car for a distant buyer.

    Most scammers on facebook don't scam in the old fashioned way so inspecting the car is not always going to save your butt.

    What's the modern Facebook scamming technique?
    I'm not even on that platform so know squat about it.

    I did find a 1989 or 90 HO Escort here in my home town a couple years ago, but unfortunately it sold (listed at $1100 Canadian, IIRC) before I got it.
    I did look at it a little after it was sold, as it was in a driveway near a friend's house, but I couldn't crawl all around it for close scrutiny as it was no longer for sale.

    Not following, who are you are referring to? Me?! If so, you are confused I think. I am seriously just sharing a find from OfferUp, not a good deal, not my car, nothing I know anything about, just something I found.

    I bought an '83 EXP for $2.5k that was originally listed at $7.5k and the *owner* before me bought for $750, but none of that has anything to do with this post, my credibility or anything of the sort. I think you must be confusing details somehow or maybe referring to someone else.

    I not on Facebook either. But my last job exposed me to scamer quite regular both on Facebook and elsewhere.
    There are a lot of scam to look out for.
    Asking for a cash deposit then running off is a common one. Tricking you to click on a link that has malware are two common ones.

    I did buy mine off an eBay auction and all the prices were the same so sounds like my purchase which you may be misunderstanding how that all went down from what I read.
