I almost bought one five years ago. The 88 & 89 models were quite dependable. The 85 and 86 were terrible. They had engine problems and also the dash's all cracked and the leather seats came apart. Ford fixed this about mid 87. I didn't get one because the replacement parts were so expensive due to their scarcity.
