Sharp looking car and the price is very reasonable for a no rust Mirada.
LOL, if I was him, I'd ask for a different licence number. You know, one that doesn't say "DUH":p

Well, maybe he figures given the age of the car he is more likely to find a buyer who's looking for a 'parts car' than a buyer who's actually looking for the whole running car that's that old?

I thought Craigslist started charging like $5 to post a car? I've been noticing more cars in the parts section, I imagine to get away from the fee.

Why no interior or engine shots, not even a mention of what engine is in it. Obviously an old poor paint job, but it does look good for what we can see. I would ditch the vinyl, though. How old are those tires? White walls that white go back to the time when this car was new!

It’s free to post in the car parts for sale section on CL, posting in the cars/trucks for sale section cost $5...so people are slipping cars into the parts section now. If he’s hard up for $5 you could probably work him over for a good deal lol

To a certain ethnic group those tires are very popular and current and some are spendy, like $175 a tire. id not give $1.75 myself for all 4.

For it being west of the Mississippi id bet its also org. paint.

I have white walls on my Mirada, I like the look, but my Firestones are the traditional thinner ones. Though, they got to be 10 or 12 years old, despite the low miles on them, I should replace them. Have toyed with the idea of using BF Goodrich letter tires, what do you guys think? The paint seems somewhat flat to me, but not worn, know what I mean? Like an old cheap Macco paint job, though, I could be wrong. We need to save as many of these as we can, they made so few of them.

I like traditional WW tires, although they are getting hard to find like were talking about.

BFG-s tires have a short life span and harden and crack in short order.

Not sure if any better but with so many using cooper cobra tires Ive went to MT street series tires at about the same cost.

Like these.

I just need to find some good 14 inch factory rims and get some tires like these.

They don't make those in 14 inchers anymore? My Mirada takes 15 so a little easier. I see you can get full chrome Magnums these days, thinking about putting those on my blue Mirada, any opinions on that? Right now I have 30 year old aluminium Keystones with spinners.
