Welcome!

Looks nice but not the biggest fan of fox verts. If you are, than go for it.

Check all problem areas. Driver side shock tower below master cylinder for rust and decay, reach under car behind front wheels and feel for holes and spongy sheetmetal on both sides also if you can check under the rear of the car where the lower control arms meet the body and look for cracks and breakage. The only other real problem area other than these is floorpans under the seats where stress fractures occur. Looks to be a clean car but you never know till you check.

Welcome

It looks like a nice foxfor sale but like the above said be sure to check it out close for the common rust and rot issue they have to be sure.

Nice vert', fairly low mileage too.
I like them. We still have and always will have our youngest daughter's 1989 triple white GT convertible in the garage.
