1k Flash: Grassroots Racer: 1985 Merkur XR4Ti

The Merkur XR4Ti was the European Ford Sierra XR4Ti, but confusingly rebadged and exported for US consumption from 1985-1989. This 1985 Merkur XR4Ti has been built into a "grassroots race car" (maybe a Grassroots Motorsports Challenge car?) and is for sale in Atlanta, GA for $1,500 via craigslist.  This one has a roll cage and probably lots of questionable modifications... but...it could make a great track rat.

  1. Got a litle twinge of excitement then saw the cage-doh! Judge Phil and Jay would probably need rescucitating after laughing themselves unconscious if I tried to bring that to tech as my team's second car. Always loved these and their Euro rally quirkiness...just not enough to rip out the cage and start all over with Evil.
