Pull your spark plugs and see if it turns over. I wonder if a cylinder is full of oil, gas or coolant.

How do you know its only 78,000 miles? Are you the original owner of this car?

There's not enough digits to read over 100,000 miles. See picture.

Really, it could have - dare I say - probably - 178,000 or 278,000... a 33 year old car would have to have been mothballed for years on end to only have 78k

FordNut, yes, it was either owned by the "Little Old Lady From Pasadena " or a cloistered monk! Neither of them is believable. More likely the 278,000.
