Description of 1989 Ford Taurus SHO

This is my 1989 Taurus SHO that was my daily driver for a few years. It wasn't in the best condition when I got it and since I am a mechanic, the interior has taken a beating during my possession. The car runs great and it has all the power you would expect it to have but it does need valve guide seals. I have the seals and a new timing belt that goes with the car. The exhaust is good, tires are so so, rims are aftermarket, and the radiator is about a year and a half old. I put a new heater core in it a few years ago, that was a nightmare. The downside of the car is the transmission is bad because I put a Phantom Grip LSD in it and I ended up shearing and expelling the side gear pins which destroyed the transmission case. The car does have a lightened flywheel in it along with a puck type clutch. There is a hard spot on the flywheel because the clutch was starting to chatter when released. I'm sure everything will be fine if the flywheel and clutch plate are cleaned up. The other big thing bad about the car is the glass is broken on the drivers side due to an argument with a backhoe. The backhoe won.
This car could easily be put back on the road with a new trans, battery and some glass for the driver's side of the car. I miss driving the car because it is loads of fun and makes getting around people on the highway easy. My new car is as dull as dishwater so you better buy the Taurus before I decide to sell my Toyota and fix up the ol' SHO.
