1983 TC found in barn

15 minutes from my house!!! And I'm the original owner of an '83 5.0 Heritage. Amazing how things happen sometimes!

Got it...

Found out about it last Wednesday, looked at it Friday morning, paid for it and had it delivered Monday!

It's undergoing a good clean up right now. It had 135,000 miles of daily driving when it was parked in 1994 so it needs to be freshened up.

No clearcoat paint (it's bright red/tan interior) so it's going to need buffing to bring the paint back to new. Looks great from 10 feet but up close you can see the wear from age and use.

It will keep me busy and out of trouble for awhile!

I thought I did well with finding an 84 with a solid body. If you don't mind me asking, what did you pay for it? I found that 84 and I am not sure on what to offer, and would like to have something to reference off of.

83 Tc

Well, the original sticker price was $15,520 and I got about $15,000 off of sticker!

The car isn't mint although the pictures make it look real good, but it is very original and not butchered up like a lot of the cars you find. It has 135,000 miles and needs freshened up. After a good cleaning and some minor fix up I wouldn't be ashamed to ask around $1500 for it. I really like the red/tan combo but setting prices for these cars is tough.

I found an 85 white/red TC (probably a good parts car since the interior is pretty well ripped out) and the asking price is $500.

Good luck.... start low, you can always go up!
