    General

    Up for sale is this 1990 Ford Taurus SHO, finished in Electric Red over a black leather interior, powered by a Yamaha 3.0 liter V6 engine running through a five-speed manual transmission, and showing 187,010 miles on the clock.

    The first-generation Taurus was a huge success for Ford, and at the time a groundbreaking (and potentially risky) change in design with its aerodynamic form. The real surprise was the addition of a performance model, this SHO model, with substantial mechanical upgrades that drew rave reviews from contemporary automotive press. Starting with a 24-valve V6 commissioned by Ford from Yamaha, it was the only overhead-cam motor available for the Taurus, with 220HP and a 7,000 rpm redline, and it completely changed the character of this sedan.

    Initially offered only with a five-speed manual transmission, it also featured upgraded brakes and a sport-tuned suspension, SHO-specific alloy wheels in a larger 15” size, and aerodynamic bodywork that made for a very quick and competent sedan, especially compared to any sedan available from domestic competition.

    This example is a well maintained example with driver mileage, with some wear evident on close inspection, but straight and mechanically solid, ready to go for the next owner.

    Exterior

    The Electric Red finish of this SHO is in very good condition. The color tint is consistent and even across all panels, which are straight with even gaps. Up front, the nose of the SHO has a few stone chips on the leading edge of the hood, and on the aero grill between the headlights, but is still free from any major flaws.

    Lighting and lenses are clear and functioning properly. In the back, the badges show some minor chipping, and some small scrapes are evident around the embossed “SHO” logo, but otherwise present well with no damage on the bumper surfaces or rub strip.

    Along the sides, the fenders and doors are free from door dings or dents. The aero rocker covers along the bottom between the wheels show heavy pitting and wear from use, but are properly attached.

    Interior

    The black leather interior is in good shape overall. The driver seat shows the most evidence of use, with color worn down along the seam of the driver side bolster, and surface color cracking on the perforated seat bottom.

    Touch points like the steering wheel and the leather manual shifter knob are shiny from use but intact, with no color fade or cracks. Armrests are clean with no cracks, and the dash and instrument panel are similarly free from warping or damage. Carpets are clean and full, and the headliner is taut and free from sagging. In the trunk, the bulkhead cover is present but unattached.

    Mechanical

    The 220hp 3.0 liter Yamaha V6 and five-speed manual transmission are in proper operating condition, with no drivability issues. Under the hood, the engine compartment is decently clean, and it is noted that the intake runners for the engine have been painted a light gold color.

    Underneath, there is corrosion of some bare metal components like the exhaust, bolts and fasteners, and suspension and axle parts, with surface corrosion also seen on some crossmembers and chassis.
