Classified Rules, READ BEFORE POSTING! - Updated 7.29.2015

Any transactions you complete here are at your own risk. CEG is in no way responsible.

  1. You must be registered for 60 days to post in the classifieds. This isn't anything that a moderator or Administrator can over-ride, so don't bother asking.
    NOTE: The forum has been having problems allowing certain users to post once they reach 60 days. If you can't post, try clearing your cookies. If that doesn't work, PM one of the classifieds mods.
  2. Classified ads need to include a price, location, and need to be actual FS or WTB ads, not "feelers." If you do not have a proper (i.e. city and state) location in your profile, you must add it to every classifieds post you make.
  3. You must notify a mod, either through a post or PM, if your item is sold/found so we may lock the thread. This helps everyone know what items are no longer available. A thread will be locked only by request of the original poster.
  4. You may post eBay auctions or Craigslist ads only if they are YOURS. Include the list price, location, etc. Posting just a link to the auction will be deleted.
  5. Please keep non-Contour parts in the "Misc" section.
  6. Anything "wanted to buy" MUST be labeled with "WTB".
  7. If you have multiple items for sale, please divide them up in the correct forums.
  8. If you see a problem with a post or person, notify a mod either through the "notify mod" button or send a quick PM.
Unless noted, rule violations will receive a warning the first time and an infraction subsequent times.
  1. Do not cross post your item in multiple areas. Cross posts will be deleted and the user will receive an infraction.
  2. Do not post non-relevant posts in someone's thread. We have received many complaints about clutter in the classifieds. If you want to "chat" about an item, take it to PM's.
    EXAMPLES: If I were closer, I'd buy it; GLWS; If you decide to ship it, I want it; If you decide to part it, let me know; I've seen this car in person...etc.
    Replies can include: Will this fit my SE?; Is that a broken tab?; How many miles?. Legitimate questions! The seller may answer those questions.
  3. After an agreement has been made, all shipping talk should be via PM. You may put shipping options in the original post.
  4. Do not post negative comments about an item. If somebody wants $20k from a Contour, let them try.
  5. Bumping. After two weeks (14 days), you may post "Bump" to bump your item back to the top. If you bump before the two week period, the bump will be deleted, and you will get a warning. Do it a second time, your thread will be deleted and you will get an infraction. Information updates, price changes, etc. are allowed.
    Updates/price changes DO NOT include: "still have this", "Price is the same, not lowering it".
    Updates/Price changes include: I dropped the headlight and it now has a broken tab. If you have multiple items, for example: 4 IMRC covers... you may post that you now have 3 left. *Price dropped from $125. to $100.
Threads that do not follow all the above rules will be deleted. If your thread is deleted, do not start another one unless you include the required information and are willing to adhere to the rules.

  • FS: For Sale 98 Contour SVT Black/MNB

    The sad time has come for my baby to find a new home. I am leaving for basic training within the next few months and have decided to give her to a new owner.

    It does have a salvage title due to a previous owner hitting a deer. I have no understanding of why it was considered totalled because all it did was mess up the front bumper paint and loosen it up a bit.

    It is leaking antifreeze slowly but surely and I am not sure of the source of the problem..

    -I swapped clusters at 68335 miles due to the fuel gauge not working. I bought a cluster from OB1 which read 164xxx when I received it. It now reads 180xxx miles. You do the math.
    -It has the typical 3rd gear grind under hard shifts. And the occasional "slip/pop" out of 1st gear. It has only been doing so for about 3 months now.
    -Numerous water pumps have been put into this car, which I guess is normal for this engine? I have put in 3 I believe.
    -Tires are decent. I'll say 50% on the front and 40% or so on the rear. Not any super expensive performance tires. Also has new brake pads front and rear about 5,000 miles ago
    -Does need rear struts! And possibly new rotors.
    -Has a KKM intake on it with a new air filter about 8,000 miles ago.
    -Has a fairly new belt tensioner as well as harmonic balancer. About 10,000 miles.
    -CEL is on. Put a tester on it and it came up as oxygen sensors.
    -Has been in Wisconsin most of it's life which means it has rust. Not much at all. Just under the rear wheel wells and the bottom of the doors which is hardly even noticable. It has seen some winters.
    -Aftermarket Kenwood cd player with Kicker speakers in the front doors and Sony speakers in the rear. Will sell with the car at additional cost.
    -No jack point covers.
    -Windows are tinted on the driver and passenger sides in front and back. 5% on all 4. Expensive tint.
    -The paint isn't in horrible condition but it definitely is not perfect. Especially on the front bumper. Does have mesh on front bumper, not the rear.
    -Interior is in good condition. I have always taken great care of the inside. Leather is immaculate. Driver side floor mat has some wear.

    I am looking at 1300 or best offer. This car is located in northern Wisconsin. 54821... PM or text 715-413-1140. NO CALLING

    Sorry for my lack of pictures at the time. When I have a chance to get an actual camera I will take pictures of the interior and the flaws. These are just some pics I had on my phone..

    For the record, I could sell this car at any point I choose. I don't want to because I know it won't get taken care of whatsoever. Some punk kid wants to buy it and I really don't want him to have it. I want someone on CEG to have this car. Help me out here. It's now on Craigslist...
