Race ready 92 Taurus SHO

Recommended Posts

For Sale:  1992 Taurus SHO with title, modified for Lemons/Chumpcar circuits.  


Our last race with Chumpcar was at Gingerman in 2014.  We ran for about two hours before we spun a rod bearing and parked the car.  In 2016 we replaced the engine with one that had 120k miles.  We ran the car around the block a few times to make sure we weren’t missing any important parts, but the car hasn't seen a track since the engine was replaced.   


Besides needing a front alignment, the car is more or less race ready.  Again, our last race was only two hours long, so we still have brakes and tires for a weekend of racing.   We are also selling our collection of spare parts which includes a spare rebuilt transmission and three corners worth of suspension.


We would like to sell the parts and car together for $2300 OBO.  We are only willing to sell the transmissions separately if the car is sold and they weren’t included as part of that sale.  The car is located in central Iowa and we can negotiate pickup or deliver as part of an offer.
