as long as you can get the wiring to match up properly and it fits in your dash, i see no reason it shouldnt work. all the wires should match up to the same color, i dont see why ford would change them from vehicle to vehicle (although they have done some crasy stuff before), so i dont know if you will need a wiring kit for it. you might try that before buying the kits. if for some reason the wires are different and will not mate, then the wiring kti idea should work, upi should be able to find the plug for the back of the new stereo a a salvage yard.
i say go for it
, plus it looks way cooler than most standard taurus units
best of luck with it, let us know how it works out
