I'm thinking of getting back into a Conquest. I go way back with these cars..Mid 90's so I know them well and have had many over the years. I'm  looking for a cleanish Fiji car. Must be a 5 speed. Not looking for restored pricey car or a rotbox piece of crap. Somewhere in the middle would be nice. The more complete the better. Im not concerned about mechanical issues. Really don't want rust. I do paint and body stuff but I've got enough rusty cars here. I'm not in a hurry so figured I'd see what's out there. I've had several Red cars, a Silver and a White. Always wanted Fiji so time to start lookin. I'll travel within roughly 8-9 hours from Pittsburgh so if you are farther than that, I probably will pass. Drop me a line if you have something. Thanks.

I'd love to see some pics of your 78 TA.  I've been casually looking for a 77 to add to my collection of cars.  I really want T-tops.

Yeah - Sorry. I am surprised I didn't notice the red engine bay.  
The maroon interior on blue didn't make much sense to me, but now I know why.

And truthfully, I dont think I have ever seen a red with red leather. Only black with red. So I wonder if it was originally black then red then blue. lol

There's one for sale in Knoxville for $2,500. SHP with a sunroof. Not mine. Here's a link, I think you may need to join that Facebook group to see it: https://www.facebook...04687639665905/
165k, engine needs rebuilt, little bit of wheel arch rust. May be too much rust for you, I don't know. Definitely a project but looks decent enough to save.
Buy the ticket, take the ride.

I'll throw my 89 SHP Fiji into the ring.
  • Black Leather
  • Original Fiji Paint, needs a respray
  • Only bummer is she's an auto
  • Sunroof
  • 88k, all 100% stock. No mods
  • Brand new OEM Fiji airdam
  • 4 New Kumho tires (one loses air, bad valve seal).
  • A/C needs work.
Could let an extra set of seats and a bunch of parts go with it.
Could use paint, a few dings here and there, no rust.
Been sitting in my driveway for 2 years. Gave her a charge and she started right up.
Some white smoke out the tailpipe though.
Worked great when parked. :)
Can send pics if interested.
