    -I love my SHO. Alot.......So why are you trying to sell it then, you ask??? Well, I really don't know. I just see it sitting there
    everyday and wonder if I'm ever gonna do anything with it? I have just got to the place of it would be better
    for someone to purchase it and do something with it rather than for someone to find it and holler... "Barn Find!!"........
    Anyway, I purchased this car in July of 2010. and brought it home. It has sat in the same spot since. If you will search on the
    forum the words "Core Restore" you will see I was just finishing up a complete restore of a white '95 MTX.
    But the '93 was what I was wanting in a SHO. A silver over black MTX with absolutely no rust, unmolested and just as stock
    as they come. I had to battle about three others people wanting to buy the car and I won out because the guy liked that I told him I wanted a match mate to my Silver '93 ATX I had at the time. In the photos, if you can read it, you will see it was purchased new at Doenges Bros Ford in Tulsa, Ok. It was bought by Mr. Larry Cagle. He drove it and kept the car as meticulous as the records.
    Mr. Cagle drove it up until 2009 when he had knee problems/surgery and couldn't drive a stick any longer. He was in his 70's. He gave the car to his daughter and her husband, Dru. After having owned it a few months, and doing some research about the care and maintenence of a SHO, Dru realized he couldn't afford or perform the up keep on the car. So, hence he
    put the car up for sale. Now, again, I've had it since mid-2010 and I started taking it apart to clean and repair or replace whatever I saw it needed and life just kinda happened and I just stopped working on it. And so it sits under my shed covered with a car cover waiting on me. Actually, I had the shed built OVER it after I bought it.

    -But to the point, the car is sold as a complete car with all its original parts, PLUS!!!....... all the parts
    I have purchased to go on the car. This is a package deal.....Only! NONE of the parts will be sold separate or parted out, if i'm getting out of SHOs, it all goes, so Please do Not Ask.....
    The only way to get the parts is to buy the car. They were bought for it, they go with it.
    Again the car is Silver over black W/ cloth inserts MTX. Parts other than original installed parts include........

    -NOS set of Eibach springs
    -New set of four ASA 17" wheels (they have a center cap that covers lug holes)
    -New set of Goodyear Eagle LS tires P235/55R17
    -Set of high flow Cats
    -Used set of <20k Tokico Struts from the Original SHO guy, Bill Staib
    -ALL the records of Mr Cagle on the car, including Bill of Sale and Window Sticker
    -New set of Clear corners
    -NOS hard button EATC
    -Also I replaced the original hood with a color matched regular Taurus hood for the
    body lines......

    -Will upload more pics after thread approval....

    -The car is located in Alexandria, Al. Price for everything is $4750. And will prolly throw in a few things extra, since
    I wont have a SHO anymore and won't find another one like this......Car WILL need to be towed/hauled. Does not run.......Best contact is either here or TEXT me at 256-223-9809 for a call back if needed.

    Here are some pics of the car itself as it is the day of posting. It is here on jackstands as it has been like since August of 2010. Well, without the car cover on it at the moment.........I went out to my garage and found that I forgot that I had swapped wheels with my ATX, that's seen in the first set of pics, so I have the '00-04 wheels to go on it. But did find some other parts and pieces that I will give the buyer, if wanted, also.....Found some belt mldgs, hood seal, gray int pieces of they want it, covers, brackets, and more, etc.....If dont have a SHO, dont need the parts.....[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Pics of the interior? Is the paint as nice as it looks in the photos? Is it R134a? Did you drain the gas tank at some point? What wheels/tires are going on the car? Tempting as it is getting harder and harder to find rust free cars.

    There is a pic of the interior in the 1st set of pics. As you see, there is nothing there but dash, console, and door panels. As stated, I removed a lot of things so I could clean, hence seats, pkg shelf and numerous other items were removed for that purpose. Those things are all stored in my garage. The paint is as good as it looks for a car that has sat covered for 8 yrs, other than the dust. Not to mention my daughter's cats sleeping on it. The A/C shows no signs of conversion to 134. But it could have been. I don't have to much memory of the things Dru told me in 2010, about it. So it may or may not be. I did not drain the gas tank. I do remember they had about quit driving it, because there was so much oil in the plug wells, the car would buck so when they drove it. Gas was almost empty when I got it. Added none. I put Sta-bil in it once a year. As for wheels, as stated, I put the OEs off the manual car on my ATX 5 yrs ago. I had the '00-'04 wheels on the ATX, but when Iwas selling it, the guy would only buy if I swapped the wheels, so I did. So the '00-'04 wheels will go with this car for mobility, along with the above mentioned ASA wheels and G/Y tires......

    -I have received inquiries from many stating that they are interested in the car, but not so much the parts. Well,
    unfortunately, this is not working that way. IF I am selling the car, the parts have to go also, because it will put me out of the SHO business. However.....I will remove the tires and wheels as most have stated they have their own likes, and I can run the tires on my wife's Focus and sell the wheels some other way. Other than that, she is a
    take all deal. An original, Rust Free, Un-Molested SHO. your not gonna find many as clean as this still left.
    Price w/o tires and wheels $4,000 Thanks.

    Oh man...

    Stuart, I didn't know you had a silver one! Hate to hear you letting it go, I hope everything is going ok for you.

    I wish I could afford it, could keep it local ;)

    Yeah, as you can see, I've had it awhile Dan. It's not a 'have to' sale, but since I have let it sit, and not touched it in so long, thought I'd give someone a chance to do something with it. Maybe one day, tho. If no one wants it, they can't say I didn't try!.....lol
