1990 Ford Taurus SHO
1990 Ford Taurus SHO
The Ford Taurus SHO, (Super High Output), was the high-performance variant of the Ford Taurus. It was originally produced by Ford from 1988 until 1999. It returned in 2009 for the 2010 model year. The SHO, (originally spoken as individual letters, as of 2010, pronounced "show"), was built by the same team that produced the Ford Mustang SVT Cobra. It was originally created as a limited production model for 1989. However, the car proved to be very popular and sold 15,519 units in its first model year, leading Ford to order more engines and begin series production. The SHO would go on to be produced for ten years in three generations, totaling 106,465 vehicles as of late 1999.
For consignment a 1990 Taurus SHO. Presenting with 187K miles and very clean and well maintained, full leather interior and plenty of get up and go!
Electric Red Clearcoat Metallic bathes the combination of neoprene crash bumpers and straight steel. A few areas of chipping off and wear through are noted particularly on the rockers. Black trimmings add some contrast in the window surrounds and body trimmings. Keypad code entry provides interior access and a sunroof is showing in the top. Standard Ford wheel covers are seen on all 4 corners.
Plenty of black leather is covering the seating and other surfaces in the inside of this sports sedan. Big puffy buckets in black leather have multiple electric seat adjustment buttons that can get things just right for the driver and passenger baby bear. A center console houses the manual shift lever and has a storage compartment. The original dash is upfront and showing clean. Black carpeting for the floors and a black headliner is tightly adhered to the roof of this interior.
A flip of the hood, and in a clean and unrestored engine bay sits the power plant that gives this car its moniker, (SHO), which is a Yamaha 3.0 liter V6 that has EFI and can pump out 220hp. On the back is an MTX IV 5-speed manual transmission and a 3.74 final drive.
Slight patina, some road dirt and light surface rust are seen underneath. Floor Pans and unibody are rust free and totally structurally sound. The stock exhaust is suffering just a bit with some heavy surface rust but remains buttoned up with no leaks. Independent McPherson struts are reserved for all 4 corners of this car in the suspension department, and power disc brakes are on all 4's as well.
Slipping inside this sporty yet very comfortable leather interior, this car fired right up, and on the test track performed just beautifully. Great acceleration, good handling and solid braking all add up to a high performance 4 door family cruiser with some surprises for a challenger should you happen upon one!
Overall a nice sporty 4 door sedan, plenty of power, and well maintained. Nice red paint, wonderful comfy leather interior, and with a press of the accelerator a smile will emerge from the driver's face!
