Default FS: 1997 SHO Taurus v8 3.4L

as seen from this thread:

http://www.thechicagogarage.com/foru...up-new-dd.html


Up for sale is my 1997 Taurus SHO v8. This has the 3.4L v8 yamaha/ford engine.


This car was built and EXTREMELY maintained by James Huber, aka @St Louis SHO on the boards here. He built it for a show car/daily driver for his wife, but at the time, for personal reasons, needed to sell the car. I just sold my White g8 and was looking for a new daily driver. It was WAY too nice to daily drive, so i put it in my garage. Being that I have two other cars, this one gets driven the least. I think I only put on 3,000 miles since I bought it 17 months ago.

This car is a cruiser... its a couch on wheels. The seats are SUPER comfy. I averaged 26.5 mpg on the way home from St. Louis when I purchased it. You can turn the knobs on the suspension from SUPER FIRM, to SOFT, and it shows.

$5500 .. but open to reasonable offers

  • New bearings, plugs, wires, thermostat, o2 sensors, air filter, control arms, tie rods, bushings, ball joints.
  • All new fluids, every single one... A/C is ICE cold, Heat is SCORCHING
  • This car/engine has been COMPLETELY gone through
  • I've changed the oil twice with Mobil 1 Synthetic and a Purolator GOLD filter.

Exterior
  • 18x7.5 RSL MASE rims, wrapped in 245/45/18 Michelin Pilot MXM4 A/S tires, 80% tread left!
  • 15% window tint all around, covering the 3rd brake light
  • 1998+ red tailights
  • Silverstar headlights
  • Clear corners

Interior
  • 3.5 mm aux jack hardwired into headunit
  • Alpine door speakers

  • Extra set of SHO floor mats, engraved
  • Extra full intake manifold

And some pictures, ill try to keep them in chrono order... the only changes really were the hideous yellow taillights were swapped for red ones, and the rear power antenna was fixed.


Here are some of the "build" pictures. He really went all out with the quality of products/paint used here...



















^^^^ Window tint in the rear has been redone to cover 3rd brake light!






^^ again, the antenna and tailights are changed out


Interior shots



















and just some random pictures ive had.

Feel free to ask any questions you have. I built this car personally, for my wife, so everything was done top notch.

Hey... It's too nice for ME to daily.... Doesn't mean it's too nice for some of you... I just have a weird thing about SHOs in the winter time.
