Vehicle Description

Aaaahhh, the awesome 3rd Gen Taurus SHO. This is an incredible example of a well cared for car customized to the point of being sweet, but not tacky... Future finances force sale now- I only bought this car a short time ago, and started working right away. Now, the wonderful Michigan economy forces the sale.

I bought the car with 153,250 miles on it, and it now has almost 155K. The car was originally a Ford executive car in Dearborn, and had the cams welded according to that owner at 91K. The person I bought it from had it for the rest of it's life. He is an enthusiast also, so he understood the car and what it needed. I fixed the stumbling/stalling problem when I bought it and now it is finished, and I really wish I could keep it, but it's an extra "fun" car that I really don't have the luxury of keeping around anymore, especially through the winter.  The SHO starts fast, drives wonderful, and sounds absolutely sinister...  People get out of my way.  I like that in a car.

Here is what the previous owner and I have fixed/replaced...

Previous owner-

* New Ford SARC electronic struts (4)

* New Ford installed brakes

* New Tires 2,200 miles ago

* New 02 Sensors

* Transmission rebuild at 120K-ish


* New rear coilpacks (fixed the stumble)

* Replaced the IMRC (controls the secondary exhaust system)

* Cut mufflers off and installed 3" Black Chrome pipes out back. (Looks and sounds like nothing else on the road!!!)

* Tinted Windows

* Passenger side wheel bearing & ball joint

* New Sears DieHard Gold battery

* Have new rear SARC specific rear springs and will include with sale as the driver side sags about 1/2" in the rear

* Have secondary tranny cooler that will be included in the sale

* Replaced decklid as there was some aluminum corrosion on the old one

* Installed Ford CD changer

* '98-'99 style red only taillights

* '98-'99 style crystal front turn signals

* '99 Silver SVT style instrument cluster bezel

You need to own this super clean SHO. One of a kind bad@$$ rare Pacific Green sedan.

Stop blending in and buy this car. I wish I could keep it!

I'm ASKING $3,499 locally ( BELOW fair value on KBB.com) but will entertain and accept reasonable offers.  Car is for sale locally, and I do reserve the right to end this auction early if it does sell.  E-M me for tons more pics at rapalacaster@yahoo.com
