1996 Ford Taurus SHO

159,498 miles
3.4 liter DOHC 235hp V8 engine
4-speed automatic transmission
Toreador red exterior paint with saddle leather sport bucket seats
Power tilt and slide moonroof
AM/FM stereo with 6 speakers, cassette player, 6-disc CD changer in trunk
Automatic air conditioning system with rear seat vents
Rebuilt transmission in November 2008

In March 2009 the car broke down. A mechanic said that 4 cylinders had misfired and the problem was the timing chain or the camshafts. To go in and investigate the problem with the engine would cost at least $2,000 to $3,000. The car currently does not run, so the buyer needs to have the car towed from my house.

The body is free of any major defects, only a few minor scratches. No major rips on the leather seats except for normal wear and tear. Driver’s side mirror was replaced last summer. Radio works fine but the retractable antenna does not retract, it just remains in the upright position. I am the second owner of the car.
