Josh's 1996 Rose Mist Taurus SHO (Barney)

Well. I never thought the day would come so soon, but I found a '96 SHO on craigslist for $500. After consideration by dad, we went up to Ravenna and purchased this Rose Mist SHO for $400, and towed it home on the tow dolly.

Details:

1996 Ford Taurus SHO.
3.4L Yamaha/Cosworth 32V DOHC V8
AX4N Automatic Trans
Rose Mist Metallic (Car #21 of 86 Rose Mist SHO's Produced)
Graphite Leather Interior
Mileage At Purchase: 119,631
Current Mileage: 126,500

Optional Equipment: PEP 211B (Power Sunroof, Keyless Entry System, Perimeter Anti-Theft, EATC , JBL Premium Audio System), 16" Chromies, Leather Seats, 6-Disc CD Changer, and Daytime Running Lamps.



I have ALL service records from new. Over $5,000 was spent on maintenance and repairs.

Sold new at Prestige Ford (now AutoNation Ford) in Bellevue, Washington.

Issues Resolved Since Purchase:
- Replacement Of: Alternator x2, MegaFuse, Brake Master Cylinder, Headlight Bulbs, Radio ICP Football, Passenger Sunvisor, Driver & Passenger Airbag, Windshield, Antenna & Base
- Brake Bleed
- Tire Rotation
- Transmission Fluid Flush & Filter Replacement
- Full Interior and Exterior Detail
- Camshaft Welding

Modification List:
- GenTex Auto Dim Rear View Mirror
- 1997-1999 OEM SHO V8 Fender Emblems
- LED Interior/Exterior Conversion
- 1998-1999 Center Console Cupholder Insert
- Gloss Black Vinyl Wrapped B & C Window Pillars

This is what it looked like when I picked it up:





And here's a recent shot to give you an idea of what a clean Rose Mist looks like:

Fantastic color too. Never seen it before. Given only 58 left the factory with it, that's a pretty awesome find.

Sweet find bud! I'm looking forward to seeing this Bull live on. What are you planning for mods once you fix the broken stuff?

Thanks everyone!

Dad said I have to keep it stock until the car gets put in my name. But Window tint, carbon fiber trim, LEDs, projector headlight conversion, and some other touches.

Be careful with the mod budget since it sounds like you will have to spend a few bucks on getting it up to snuff first and you need to have a slush fund for the unexpected. A V8 SHO is not a ca$ual car.
