This is one of the coolest-looking intake manifolds of all time. I keep meaning to grab one at the junkyard and display it on my garage wall, alongside the even-cooler-looking Porsche 928 intake that's already there.
A 5-speed manual transmission was mandatory in all Taurus SHOs built for the 1989 through 1992 model years. The last year for a manual transmission in the non-SHO Taurus was 1988, and even that was available only with the miserable 88-horsepower four-cylinder engine. I have been searching for one of these cars in wrecking yards for years and have yet to see one.
Sold new in Denver, will be crushed in Denver.
