      Saw this and I think that it's pretty cool. Add some SVT bits and you got a winner !

      SVT Wagon you say? This guy is actually from Ohio, it's a full cosworth built engine too.



      If that CL wagon were closer I'd seriously snatch it up. I'd love one of those in a 5spd.

      I spy....factory leather, factory power moonroof, and a manual.

      Now for the question that is on everyone's mind, since this is NY: Is this a 2.3L PZEV?

      What makes this so special?
      Serious question.

      It's just such an odd duck. Focus wagons are somewhat unusual, and the ones you see are hubcapped, auto trans rental specials. This is a very rare specification.

      I still think it might be a PZEV too; that would make it really fun.

      Does the hood not close or is that just an OEM gap?

      That looks really good! Love the wheels, as basic as they are.

      That's pretty much my old car right there down to the color except for the leather and sunroof! If there ever was a truly a love/hate relationship in my life this was it. Great car with horrible reliability. Too bad I had to dump it because otherwise it's the kind of automotive swiss army knife you don't mind keeping for a long time.

      What makes you say that? NY got 2.3l PZEVs in 2003. Thats where my Focus came from.

      There is a chance it could be the mythical unicorn. 2.3l + MTX + Wagon. And for under 3?

      Gotcha.
      I think it's actually a pretty good price considering the used car market is so jacked up.

      One of the people I dislike most in the world drives a MT Focus wagon... Sorry had to share haha.

      I have been looking at getting a Focus Wagon to replace the Scion. Sadly though I am looking to get an auto.

      It looks that way... plus it is the fully loaded version with factory sunroof and leather. A very rare bird indeed if it is really an original NY/CARB car.

      I would totally rock that, S/C it, coil overs, and Super turismos.

      Did anyone else notice the "custom" bodywork on that hatch? I bet replacement hatches aren't too common.



      I'd still buy it for the price and just beat the dent out.

      The rear windows on these things are insanely expensive, fyi.

      Not many wagons were sold so junk yard parts probably not that easy to find. This looks like it hit the roof of underground parking when the gate was opened?

      ZTW wagon with a manual..... If I was able I would pick it up. IIRC any wagon with a manual trans was / is rare.

      Someone spoke to him, and it has been sold for days now. Not surprised, it was priced to move.
