$300 two door. Buy it immediately if the unibody is in good shape. Everything else can be fixed. If it was local I'd jump on it in a heart beat.

If the motor is shot and needs to be replaced and you want auto instead of manual it seems to me like it's a good time to switch both. Cheap and not a hell of a lot to it.

Looks to have the setup of a 91-93ish. Steering wheel apears to be of non airbag variety (94 back) but i think i see a high output badge out back (91+).

I'm guessing 1993 based on the 4X4 decals on the back. 1992 still had the chrome emblems. There is rust showing at the right rear wheel well where the fender flare meets the body, so expect to replace floor pans. If the '95 Country I picked up this week ($400) was a two door, I'd be fixing floor pans and keeping it. Instead it will be parts for another project.

Nice find for $300.

Jump all over it! I love my two dr. And at that price you can do whatever you want to it. And if you don't want the ax15, I'll take it, if we could come up with something I'd love to have a spare for mine! Pm me.
