I had the exact same car and it lost OD as well. I sold it to a friend and he put a cheap trans in it and its still going. Make great cars until they loose OD!. G/L with the sale.

1990 GT, 347 / 76mm turbo setup OUT AND GONE!

New setup going in. Dove headed 545 with a plate kit to 400, progressive, Th400 etc. etc. etc.

It's a POS because it ONLY lasted 169,000 miles? Nothing lasts forever.

Drop a used trans in it and get back to work on the Fairmont.

Do a national search and sort by distance based on your zip code.

I should probably do that, it has another 100k in it for sure. I'm just not motivated to do heavy line on an escort. I guess I'll price trannys tomorrow. I don't care if you put a million miles on a car, something breaks and you cuss it.

Well just when I'm thinking of putting a tranny in it a buyer calls. Holding firm on the 500. I still have a Saturn I just rebuilt and my Grandpas old 80 F-150 he bought new(its a sixer). I also found a 99 PINK escort wagon I can buy cheap with low miles the 500 will probably buy it and then some so maybe it's time to move on. BTW I had about 500 in the scort and when the lady hit me in the right fender I got paid double that which I used to get myself back into a car project. I have owned over 60 cars now, I don't get sentimental about them at all unless yer talkin about my truck. I'll be buried with that one!

I built a 79 with the chassis engineering 2X3 four link and A arm front end. Lot of Parts. was a lot of work. sold it in a week. I kept most of the parts. the back half was the hardest Part. I don't think I'll ever build another Door car. Enjoy it. Jack

My F-150 is a stick I'm cool with the shifting, prefer it actually. Escort is gone. Got my money back out of it and then some. Also I traded my Saturn to my ex for my old MarkVIII so my driveway is 100% Ford again!
