According to its Bring a Trailer ad, the car was placed in storage by the original owner from 1978 up until 2002 and was subsequently acquired by the seller in 2015. It now has 55,000 miles (88,500 km) on the clock.
The exterior is finished in Augusta Green Metallic and comes with features such as the silver lower panels, tinted glass, hide-away headlights, a power-retractable radio antenna, 7.0-liter GT-E badges, chrome wheels and a functional fiberglass hood scoop. As a GT-E model, this car already came with factory-standard power-assisted steering, front disc brakes, and the Super Competition handling package.
The seller says that this is one of just 394 examples featuring the GT-E package, as well as the only XR-7 model with such a factory spec – this includes the Cobra Jet V8 / 4-speed manual drivetrain combo, which is also joined by a 3.90:1 Traction-Lok differential.
