    Default 505 Exec FS.

    The local Ford dealer has a 1985 505 Executive they traded. 224k Auto. Leather seats. Interior not bad apart from dash cracks.
    Body seems in reasonable condition - only rust visible was on LHR window frame.
    I had a quick drive and apart from wheel shimmy, was surprised at the lack of power. Didn't pull at all but revved to 5000 ok. Auto was smooth changing. Muffler definately needed.
    They want $1900 but I reckon they'll take anything.

    More like a low speed steering wheel wobble that wasn't noticable at higher speeds.
