Looking for a bright tangerine coupe but would consider a convertible miles not really a concern because I would most likely terminator or coyote swap it eventually. If anyone has one for sale or knows of one please let me know. Thank you

Thats going to be a rare find. I had one back in the day. Awesome color!
Yeah they are definitely rare but that’s half the fun is finding one! They pop up a few times a year usually when I’m not looking lol. There’s actually a convertible on the Portland Craigslist but it has an engine swap already and I need one stock so I can smog it once before the engine swap. Plus I’m really hoping for a coupe. If you see any out there please post!

Will do. Coupe is the only way to go. I rarely see them come up anymore. When I do they tend to be a pile. A clean coupe is a needle in the haystack.

I just missed one here locally to me that is exactly what you was looking for. Messaged the guy, he said I have someone else in front of me, then messaged back and said he bought it.

That’s a bummer. Where’d you see it listed?

Thanks I appreciate it that was on autotrader for over a year for 15k I think it was before it was there. I’ve found a couple but lots of them have severe paint fading which is fine but people are asking mint condition prices and just haven’t been able to find the right one yet but still looking. Thank you for the heads up.

Interesting times we live in, for a 96 GT to be a steal at $18K!
Times are definitely different as far as car pricing goes. I guess to some it may not be a great deal but I would consider it one. You’d be hard pressed to even find another one in the color. Then to try to build it out you’d be well over asking price invested.

Agreed, some cars have gone up significantly recently, but I also see some trying to make the market (wishful thinking). In my mind, this is a $8k car… maybe $10k on a good day, but then again my mind has had difficulty moving past 2019 :) It may be rare but someone would need to be happy driving around in a creamsicle…
