Default Craigslist Deal: 03 Focus SVT EAP - $1,500

"Overheated" "Doesn't run"

A real Wheeler Dealer prospect?

Why can't we see photos of the actual car? Snow wouldn't matter much, even if that's true.

EAP what does that mean?

I've seen SVT focus's run about $4800-5500. COULD be a nice deal.

Something is up with the pictures.

I dont think those engines are $1500 or easy to locate new.

If someone was looking for a hot hatch project that would be perfect.

Though the "The fastest Focus and best package they have ever made!" comment made me lol. EAP = European appearance package, and it still has the 170hp of other SVT Foci.

If they're really going to scrap it they'd probably take $1k, and it could easily be parted out for much more $$.

Edit: lack of mileage claim seems skeevy.

Go check it out.
Hard to say since none of us can see the actual car, or know what the actual problem is.

EAP = European Appearance Package

You get the Anthracite 16-spoke 17" wheels over the 5-spoke.

Full leather Recaro's over the standard cloth/leather Recaro's

Orange 5-door EAP = one rare car!

I was always jealous of the black dashboard and real headlights when I drove a Focus. Only way to get those features in the states was to get the SVT.
