1994 Ford Taurus SHO
My 1994 Ford Taurus SHO ATX Automatic 3.2L didn't make it through state inspection, so time to pass it on to someone else. The car passed last year in current condition, so I don't know why shop failed it for some of the items listed below. State Inspection only good through 8/17 when auction ends. I will not be driving vehicle past this point as I'm not renewing registration. No test drives available when it ends, so selling AS IS. Shop was able to give it an emissions sticker that expires 8/18 as I've only driven the car 200 miles in the past year. I've replaced a ton of parts listed below, but it still needs work. I think it's a good starting point for someone to take it to the next level. I am selling it AS IS with no returns.
Please ask questions before bidding. I'm starting the auction low based on the current condition. I have only driven the car on short trips, but the check engine and airbag lights still come on intermittently. Car did pass emissions when it was inspected in 2016, which I have the printout for. I have a ton of service records for the car dating back to 2008. Dents and scratches throughout. Front tires 7/32, rears 4/32. Brakes are 12/32 front and rear.
Title is clear and in hand. There's a tag place about a mile from my house for transfer. I will not ship vehicle. Cash only. If you can't pay by cash, don't bid. Serious bidders only as I will report any non-paying bidders. Payment due within 3 days of auction close.

Why the shop failed it
1.Aftermarket header panel didn't fit very well, so driver headlight is off. I'll include the old panel that just needs left side marker mount hole fixed.
2.Right rear caliper is sticking, yes the new one that was replaced.
3.Driver wiper not clearing windshield.
4.Cat converter as they won't pass the flange repair.
5.Third brake light is dim.
6.Park light bulb out.
Things to do / Future projects
1.Puncture to front bumper that is hidden by front license plate
2.Left side of radiator support has body repair that has cracked.
3.Interior needs work including seats, headliner, and carpet
4.Passenger seat motor doesn't work & seat trim broken
5.Heater Core bypassed by previous owner so heat does not work
6.Left rocker has 12" rotted piece but rocker molding covers most of it
