Don't see a turbo, but then again, not sure when the EXP Turbo began.

I'd want a lot of proof before I paid $4000 for a raccoon's house.

Well they did make at least one. It was in Autoweek, Dec 6, 1982. I'm not sure if I have that issue but if prodded I COULD maybe try and dig through what I have.

I think the Ford turbo version was available in 1984. I looked at these cars way back then but they were a little to $$$ for me at the time. Never heard of the asc version until now.

In reading the description, it said it had a supercharger AND a turbo. Is this possible?? Seems redundant.

I owned a 84 Ford EXP Turbo back in 1988. Nice car, but it was on its 3rd turbo at 50,000. The engine has no PVC system, and water would build up in the oil and it would wipe out the bearing. I do remember it was a very fast 1.6 with the first year FI engine. Koni shocks, handling pack, loaded with a sunroof. I have pictures!

It may look ugly 27 years later, but being a single man in my twenties and after owning four Pinto station wagons (in a row), that thing was SUPER COOL !!!! Very Happy

I just talked with the actual owner of that car. He is a big fox body collector with rare low miles cars. I think the car is in good hands for a proper resto.
