1997 Ford Taurus SHO
3.4 V8 (recently rebuilt)
4 speed auto (shifts smooth)
Power windows, locks, sunroof, driver's seat
6 disc CD changer/cassette
Every option but the chrome wheels

I bought this car 3 years ago from a local dealer. It had around 75,000 miles. I drove it for two weeks until the motor blew up. If you are looking at this you probably know about the infamous cam gear problems on these cars. It happened to me. So it sat while I saved up the $4000 to get it rebuilt. I had it rebuilt by Kirk Doucette of NESHO near Boston, MA. I towed it all the way out there and dropped it off for a week-then flew out to pick it up. The cam gears have been welded so they won't come off again. 6 months ago I put new tires on it. Brand new brake pads and rotors on the front. New Battery (installed yesterday with a 2 year warranty)!!! Only 93,000 miles on the car, typical dings and scratches for a 12 year old car. VERY FAST!!! 25 mpg on the highway. Does need exhaust work. Car is green with tan leather interior.

I am interested in a trade for a 4x4 of equal value. Brand is not an issue-just a decent reliable 4x4 (I need it for my new house-the driveway keeps washing out).
