Used Car of the Day: Shelby Lancer
Here's a unique one -- a 96,500-mile Shelby Lancer for four grand.
This Florida-based car appears to have some rust and some other minor issues, such as a CD player that doesn't work and gauges that work only intermittently. There are some minor electrical issues and the interior looks old.
On the other hand, the 5-speed transmission has been rebuilt, there's a new clutch, and other major parts are either original or have been kept up to date.
So if you're looking for a rare '80s ride that needs some work but isn't a massive project, this might be your speed.
And if it isn't, please remember that the cars we feature here are interesting -- and that doesn't always mean show-worthy.

- ToolGuy Here is an interesting graphic, if you're into that sort of thing.
- ToolGuy Nice website you got there (even the glitches have glitches)
- Namesakeone Actually, per the IIHS ratings, "Acceptable" is second best, not second worst. The ratings are "Good," "Acceptable," "Marginal" and "Poor."
- Inside Looking Out "And safety was enhanced generally via new reversing lamps and turn signals fitted as standard equipment."Did not get it, turn signals were optional in 1954?
- Lorenzo As long as Grenadier is just a name, and it doesn't actually grenade like Chrysler UltraDrive transmissions. Still, how big is the market for grossly overpriced vehicles? A name like INEOS doesn't have the snobbobile cachet yet. The bulk of the auto market is people who need a reliable, economical car to get to work, and they're not going to pay these prices.
