The car is a 1990 Ford Probe GT with the 2.2L turbo and 97k original miles. Blue exterior with clear coat issues, gray interior, manual transmission.

The car was about as stock as they could be after this amount of time. What I am interested in from it is the engine, wiring harnesses and exhaust (gauge cluster TBD). The rest is up for grabs.

To give you an idea of the condition of the car after so many years, I removed the engine harness and did not break a single clip. I consider this to be pretty amazing.

Most of the intake piping is quite pliable. One pipe or two is a bit hard, but still flexes. The car ran fine when it came into the garage and did not have a check engine light. The struts do not leak and the auto adjust was still working great. The interior is simply great. The A/C was converted to 134A based on the fittings and it still had pressure when brought into the garage. Considering the weather, I did not test it to see if it worked.

I'm not a member on there and don't sign up on boards just to sell things. You are welcome to mention this thread there if you want though. I don't think MX6.com blocks links to those who are not logged in so they should be able to see them.

actually and plx90 i believe is his name is interested on those year tail lights
Thanks for the tip. I messaged him. :tup:

I'm interested in the Sun visors.
They are in very good condition, best I've personally seen on a 1g in years. You can tell by the seats that this car has seen a lot of love in the interior... woah, well, maybe, don't know the PO personally.

I can do $40 shipped for both visors and will be happy to cut the pigtails off on the interior side to give you a bit of extra wiring if you want.

My PP address is my board name @ yahoo.com.

The engine is out! This body won't be here much longer. Who knows, maybe gone before Christmas. If not, definitely by New Years I think.

I am really amazed at the condition of the body on this car. On most 2g I have ever had the pleasure of pulling a motor, I'd snap numerous bolts pretty much the entire way. With this car, I have only snapped one bolt and that was on the ABS sensor on the driver's side.

The passenger motor mount bracket to the chassis came off clean as did the battery tray... both of which usually had at least a couple of the bolts snap on removal on the typical 2g.

I am open to offers on parts. If you ask for a price, you'll be paying top dollar.

Driver Side Axle clearly not original. Very soft boots and no signs of cracking or even the beginnings of cracks.



Driver Side Headlight. Great condition. I think these are the first screws holding the headlight in that I have ever seen which weren't mostly stripped and/or rusted. Sylvania "Performance" headlight included.

Alternator works great, but I need it to stay with the engine so it is not for sale.

The Power Steering pump and A/C compressors would be for sale however. A/C had R134A in its lines when I got the car so I assume it still worked.

If you have the sun visors Friday I will send PayPal.
Though I have received many PMs about various items, no one has asked about the visors. If you pay Friday, they're yours.

I'll give you $50 + full shipping costs for your rear spindles if the attached hubs have good bearings still. If you could fit the calipers/rotors into the box, that would be a plus.
