I'm looking for a RUST FREE unmodified 1994 or 1995 V8 LX Thunderbird. It needs to be able to run well enough that I can drive it back home and I'd prefer to be within 2 of 3 hours of my home in 23974 Virginia (Victoria, VA in Lunenburg County). Beyond the years and being rust free, I'm seeking a car with 4 wheel disk brakes, NO moonroof and it must be dependable enough to drive it to my home without needing to trailer it (Seeking inside a 2 to 5 hour one way search radius from my home in southern VA (23074 - Victoria, VA in Lunenburg County). Exterior and interior color is of no concern. I probably won't find this as the cars seem to be getting harder and harder to find decent ones to start with but ya never know unless ya try.

Does it have to be a 94 or 95? I have a super reliable 97 for sale - 4.6 V8. I’m in Florida, but would be more than happy to drive it to you in VA.

I would look on Autotrader and Craigslist. Autotrader usually has a few MN-12's at dealers, who took them in on a trade-in from an older person. Since there is not a lot of interest on these cars, there should be negotiation room.

There can be a wide range of prices on these cars, starting with $1000-2000 hoopties, then you have $5000-8000 cars in really nice condition. I would choose the latter, since there are not a lot of nice cosmetic parts to replace worn looking pieces.

I would also open your search to 96-97's. I loved my 95, and really miss the options it had, but in the end the clogged EGR system from a lifetime of leaky valve guides on the 94-95's ended my ownership of the car.

There is one in 63755 with 40K miles, clear coat is pealing, leather seats are dried out. Other than that it's pretty fine ride. I think they wanted $1700.

Sounds like a car who's odometer stopped working.

That's another thing to look out for. A dead giveaway is the trip ODO zeroed out. Watch the miles turn on the test drive.
