hey everyone long time no talk. Well I have my 91 GT for sale. The only problem is that that tranny went. I had it rebuilt but it kept going bad. I think I got ripped off. Its an automatic. Anyways I have not the money or time to fix it. So I am selling it It is the Electric green color with tinted windows. I even have the clear corners for it and I made special mirrors for it with turn signals in it. It also put the lights on the front fenders. The tires have about 300 miles on them and the brakes are about the same. The exhaust was taken off. so it needs a muffler.it also has a fewsmall problems such as wiper relay went bad but i made a switch so they work and the headlight switch is bad also but the lights were turned into daytime running lights. and the timing belt was just changed about 200 miles ago also.so if anyones interested let me know. I live in Reading, PA. The price is negotiable. So let me know. Just leave a post here. I can email pics if you want.

well i called a couple of guys that buy broke cars and they wanted to give me 25 bucks for it. I cringed when i herd that each time. There is no way I want to let it go for that little. But i would be happy with like $300. I want it to to go to someone that likes escorts and it will do justice to it in some way.It has like 126,000 miles. and like i said the timing belt was just replaced.and the tires also.
No I took it to a local chain around here. They are independintly owned i think, Well I chose the wrong shop. cause another of theirs worked on my explorer and it works just fine. for almost 2 years now. So I have told everyone i know how bad there work is. The name of the shop is Eagens and it is a lee myles owned shop. Buty like i said there other shop fixed my explorer just fine. So i got no clue.

I'd like to get around 1500 for it, just because much less and it wouldn't be worth getting rid of it. It's been a great car. It's a 91 gt with 116,00 miles. Its a red five speed with a sunroof.

I'm not quite sure it's the shop's fault. I know several people with GT's with auto transmissions. Around 120k, the tranny started to go out, and even after having it fixed (they all had it worked on at different shops) it was still messed up and the car was never the same again, really. Best thing you can do, I think, is just put another one in.

But 300 is a steal... Boy I wish I could come up and get it. I'd buy a manual tranny and put that in and have myself a GT. :twisted:

It shouldnt be too hard to switch it over.You will just need the tranny,cables,shifter and any associated hardware to do with the manual tranny.Why not rebuild the tranny you got?You could pick up the parts online at various places.Just google f4eat transmission and you should get a bunch of hits.

Hey whats your name? Ill feel dumb calling not knowing your name. Ill be around most of the weekend if you will be around. If the body is in better condition I might put my GTX motor in it and find another motor for my other car.
