Default Ford Contour for cheap

I have an 98 ford contour for sale with 141,000 miles. The body is in good shape it does have some minor mechanical problems, but the car does run. I use it for work everyday.

Asking price is $1200....Kelly Blue book says it's worth 1655.00 in fair condition. PM for questions and pics. Located in Houston, TX

it has a minor electrical problem so the radio does not work....the transmission when the car is cold and this is not all the time won't catch on drive. So what I have done is put it on second gear and move it to drive and the car starts running "forward" again.

i have not taken the car to a mechanic, but I have been driving like that for over a year. The car has never broken down on me.

I am no mechanic, but I am sure if some of you are willing to put a little work on it you'll have a perfect working car. By the way the air conditioner blows nice cold air.

Price reduction: 1000 no less

If it had VTEC, I'd snatch it.
