    "I'm in Morganton. I’m selling/trade my 1989 Ford Taurus SHO in great running conditions and only has about 84,000 miles. I also would trade it for a small truck of same value. It is a 5 speed with a very good clutch. Gears go in very smoothly and holds great. The ride is very quiet and smooth. The vehicle is very strong and quick when you want it to. The brakes very good. The Vehicle is also very reliable and pretty good on gas as well in comparison to my Tercel which is close and all the performance. The tires are almost new. The inside is not too bad it could use a little help but it never bothered me. I am asking $2,000 or best offer. My phone number is show contact info"

    very likely 184k?

    Looks to be rust free, from the crappy pictures, but that's about all it has going for it. That, and a working a/c, maybe up to $1,500. No a/c, not over $1,000.

    Cracked dash and rust is generally a no go for me- unless it's going to be a total beater

    Cracked dash is easier to replace than rust, especially rust below the gas door.

    Yeah I know but I don't have the drive to do either. Gas door and fender lip is the first thing I look at.
