    Chrome slicers and a police grill too.

    Looks really good. True test is a good leather driver's seat with the Gen 1 leather, which just did not hold up.

    That would look good in my garage with my 87 mile polished 3.0 in it.

    Absolutely one of the cleanest G1 SHOs I've ever seen. For as clean as it is, those chrome slicers look horrid!

    I wasn't thinking that much but good to see the G1s getting their due respect.....

    In recent years that is easily one of the highest numbers I've seen for a G1 SHO. Apparently the transaction went through, the buyer already posted feedback.

    The number is so large that I am suspicious. Are there ways to verify?

    The eBay auction is proof enough for me. I highly doubt two people would go through all the neccesary work to 'stage' an eBay auction for an old Taurus. However, I was a little surprised to see feedback that quick.

    As much as I would normally welcome news like this, this one does not pass the smell test.
    I don't see any evidence that Elvis owned this car.
    Something odd is going on here.

    If you look at the sellers feedback reviews, he has sold some pretty expensive cars. If you look at the Shelby GT 350 sale, the buyer may be the same one that purchased the SHO. The number of feedbacks and the hidden name look alike. If the buyer had that kind of cash to buy the Shelby, the price of the SHO may not have been that big a deal.

    A few years back, there were two really nice low mile Gen 1's that went for 10K or 11K.

    Totally reasonable price. Less than I paid for my red 89 in March 2008.

    I would rather buy the '65 Pontiac he is now selling over that SHO.

    All depends on what you want. For a Sunday or Cruise Night cruiser, the GP is fine. But lousy for anything else like a drive longer than 25 miles or so. We have been spoiled by decent handling and performing cars with decent seating. Driving about any 50s to mid 70s car reminds you of just how wretched they were!

    Oh for sure. the handling was terrible but that's not what it's for now. I would only put so many miles per year on it anyway. Hence my reluctance to get a toy to collect dust

    I was pleasantly surprised it sold for 15K, seems worth the money. She was a rare bird..

    X2 seems fishy.
