Presented for your
review is a 1997 Ford Taurus SHO. This car is
being auctioned in 'AS IS" condition. I purchased
this car with
the bad cam syndrome. I replaced the bad
cam myself but the damage had already been done. I
had a mechanic friend of mine look at it and he
told me that the valves on the right or "rear"
head are bent and need to be replaced. He also
mentioned that the alternator was seized. He cut
the belt off so he could check the engine. He
started the car and it would only stay running if
he kept his foot on the gas. I purchased this car
as a project car but with it needing a complete
rear valve replacement it's too much for me. The
cam I replaced was the rear intake cam. This car
needs some TLC. I believe it will make a great
runner. If you have the time and facilities you
could do this car justice. It needs the mentioned
engine work as well as cosmetic work. The pictures
show what I mean. The opening bid amount is the
total I have invested in the car, no more, no
less. I will list what I know about the car. I
will not offer shipping. You must come and pick up
the car. It is positioned so that a roll back can
pull it right on. A couple of friends sold
vehicles on ebay and the shipping was a fiasco. I
offer no warranty or guarantee, implied or
The rear valves need replacing.
