Default Good deal on a new DD

Found this one a couple of days ago on the local CL. 1997 Mercury Cougar XR7 with the 30th Anniversary package. Two owners, 96k miles, 4.6 v8, leather, sport suspension, limited slip diff with 3:23 gearing.
Needs a good cleaning but otherwise it all works and it passes emissions! Paid a cool grand for it! I'll drive it a little, tinker on it and the resell it.
Never was a fan of the formal roofline of the Cougar. Love the Tbirds and still have the '97 LX/LE I bought four years ago. It now has 76k miles.Click image for larger version

People be wanting 4k for that down here......how's the rust under it??

also, that engine, is it one cam per bank?? what I call SOHC, in spite of there being 2 cams?? reason I ask is that my 2000 F150 5.4 engine has that and the chain guides went out, filling the sump with plastic and blocking the oil pump pickup so ZERO oil pressure.....

It is one cam per head, but the 4.6 and 5.4 are different. The 4.6 is a modular engine and I Believe the 5.4 is a Triton series.
The only rust I have found is a spot in front of each rear wheels. Not perforated, about a Half dollar size.

My 1997 Thunderbird Limited Edition was purchased four years ago with only 64k on it for $1900. It turned 76k last August. Also one of the last two hundred made.Click image for larger version

I had a '93 Thunderbird. Maybe the best car I ever owned. I had it nine years and put 137K on it. The only things that ever failed were the clutch fan and the fuel pump, both after 100K.
