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.
