'99 SHO silver, 46k miles for $3K

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace...6718976274053/

Not my car and no association with the seller. In Williamsburg, VA. $3,000 asking for a very very clean car based on close ups I saw over FaceTime: soft leather even on top of rear seat backs, crack/crazing-free window seals, dash over instrument panel hasn't lifted, etc. Downside is that the seller (the second owner who's only owned the car for a month; bought for girlfriend who doesn't like the bad MPG) does not believe the cams have been welded. The first owners were an older couple and they did not mention welding and there was no paperwork so it's unlikely they're welded. If getting it myself I'd take it to Rickety (Eric) in Youngstown, OH. If living south of VA I'd take it to Doug at Ford Performance Specialists.

I'd buy it myself despite not looking for a silver car because it's so clean but my schedule is just not allowing me to travel weekdays or weekends for the foreseeable future, and the wife doesn't want me getting another car until I've sold the one in the garage. If I found my ideal SHO I'd just go for it, seeking forgiveness rather than permission, but can't use what's left of the ammunition on a car I'd probably just sell when the SHO I'm looking for comes along (a '96 Medium Willow Green).

Anyway, somebody please save this car!

2018 Mustang GT
2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Ti
2012 Honda Odyssey
1992 Alfa Romeo Spider

Looking for: 1996 Medium Willow Green SHO

Past Tauri: 1989 SHO (Gold), 1996 GL (MWG), 1996 SHO (Charcoal Grey), 1997 SHO (Pacific Green), 1998 SHO (Toreador Red)

Searching and saw '03 Sable. CarFax shows at 24K tires balanced, rotated, rotors and pads replaced, wheel bearings replaced. Car sold and back in 2K miles and more of the same and now for sale.


I am concerned by this and will skip this one.

Was unaware you were seriously in the market after buying the Buick, Chart.
Looks like a good find but has a decidedly 'short' roof, who are you and what have you done with the real Chart?

The Sable sedan is going for resale or JY. Rust and some mechanicals I do want to deal with.
The '03 Sable wagon is now being driven by my daughter for hauling stuff and afraid for her to drive the sedan any more. Gear on the flex plate is going out and starter is grinding if it hits the bad spot. BJ needs to be replaced on one side and the boots are ragged on both so other soon to fail. Totaled 105K after the no fix top, so got lots out of it.

Looks like a solid car. Fully loaded and remote start seems like they sold it at a reasonable price. If local to me, I would have considered it. My older daughter is moving to Florida and when we visit I will be looking for a rust free Taurus. My silver 2001 will hit the recycle yard in the next few months with 200k and salvage title. Other 2001 has rocker rot with 120k miles. 2006 with 206k miles is developing rot even though it was in garage for last two years.
