Not a bad looking color, or car for that matter. Pretty well optioned and priced considering its condition. Very clean engine bay.

Are those cup holders OEM?? I wish I had a set of those... Mine only take small fast food cups cause they are so recessed into the console!

Also, weren't the pieces of trim between the front and rear windows painted on some Tauri from 1996/1997? I coulda swore I've seen some painted trim pieces!

yeah those cup holders are factory up untill like mid year 98 i think AFAIK alot of people upgrade them to the late 98/99 cupholders cause they tend to break.

this is exactly why i have always wondered what a gen 3 with chesnut brown would look like cause there is no flat part on the car i think it would just pop on a g3

my old gen g3 didnt have those pillars painted but it was only a gl also neither of my moms wagons had them one a 97 gs and the other a 98 idk maybe the higher trim levels were painted? never seen one from the factory though

the door jams look black to me. that paint is crazy expensive if you want to do it right though i had my dad give me a quote when i had my gen 3 still and i want to say it was upwards of a 100 bucks a pint but cant remember cause i was going to do some trim work in that color needless to say i said screw that

im gonna host these so that the if the ad runs out people can still see what we are talking about

Yeah, the cheapo-model Taurus G was like that.

Its in good condition but in my opinion, a color changing paint job seems like yesterdays fad but maybe there are more people out there that like it than I am aware of.

Nice SHO. I've always been a fan of the Gen2 SHOs.

In particular, I was curious about the police interceptor badge.

LOL! i was looking into buying that car..... It was for sale awhile ago when I was looking. It was owned by a guy in Blaine, someone must have bought it from him. The car did not have those exhaust tips on it before....
