Murican Mondeo: 1998 Ford Contour SVT

The US market Ford Contour was marketed and sold as a US market version of the European Ford Mondeo, but in truth it only shared a few pieces including the windshield, windows, side mirrors and door handles. Everything else was standard parts bin junk left over from the Tempo or borrowed from the Taurus or Escort. That didn’t stop Ford from making an interesting SVT version that might be mistaken for another 90s domestic piece of junk, but it is a cool car and certainly a bit of a sleeper. Find this 1998 Ford Contour SVT offered for $5,500 in Albuquerque, NM via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
