Wtb- 88 Wagon Parts

Recommended Posts

I am trying to help an international customer in finding some parts for their 1988 Taurus Wagon.

I need a AM/FM Cassette Radio. I will take even it if it is not working.

Factory Roof Rack with fasteners.

Please let me know what you have.

I assume you are looking for the premium AM/FM Cassette system, which may be a little more difficult to find. Regardless, I believe you should be able to expand your search to include most of that era`s Ford (and Mercury) products.

The best way to check what fits where is go to your local neighbourhood wrecking yard and check their Hollander Interchange manual. As a slightly inferior alternative, you can check Car-Part website. [ http://www.car-part.com/ ]

When I checked the Car-Part website, I could not find out if the roof racks from Generation Two Taurus/Sable wagons fit the Generation One wagons. If memory serves me, the front clip and the interior were the major changes. The roof racks looked identical.

Fortunately, the radio was in the Car-Part database. Up here the radios from the following vehicles fit the Taurus. So I assume equivalent models will fit down in the States.

The following vehicles (when I checked yesterday) had a premium AM/FM Cassette System:
1987 Mercury Grand Marquis ($100) and 1988 Mercury Sable ($34).

If all that was wanted was a regular AM/FM Cassette system, then any one of the following vehicles had a system:
Ford Ranger (1989, 1990); Ford Tempo (1987); Ford Taurus (1987, 1988, 1989); Mercury Sable (1987, 1989); Ford Thunderbird (1986, 1988); Mercury Marquis (1989); Ford Crown Victoria (1988, 1989); Ford Escort (1988, 1989); Ford Bronco II (1989) and even a Ford F250 (1986).

This all leads me to suggest any Ford (or Mercury) vehicle of that era Taurus, Sable (Generation One), full size Ford and Mercury; Tempo, Topaz, Escorts and trucks would be able to provide you with a suitable system. But as always, double check with the Hollander manual.

I can get parts, not sure how I'd ship a roof rack.

I'll check my archive of radios next chance I get and see what I have left. I know I didn't sell all of them but I'm not sure if I had any of that style AM/FM/cassette. If I do it would be the standard model, the only JBL/Premium ones I have are for various Panthers.

The wagon is a very nice 1988 Taurus LX wagon and it is in Europe. He has taken great care of it so the parts need to be in good shape. I would rather get parts from the community then some junkyard that may not handle them as nicely.

 

The customer is willing to pay for it. Use lots of tape and bubble wrap. If you can get a roof rack let me know as this is what I really need.

 

The stereo is a basic unit with cassette but I found someone to rebuild it so I may go that route. Still if anyone has a good condition stereo it will help on shipping.

This is from a 1988 Taurus L wagon. I'll try to get it tomorrow, it's in isolation. :)

Double_Negative, if I could fit the liftgate in my 09...I'd love to have it off that 88.  I need one for my 89 as it's heavily damaged.  Unfortunately, I don't think it will fit and I'd have no way to get it back here.  Oh well, one day I will find one closer to home.  I do need that trim from the LF door.  The rubber that goes around the window that includes the chrome strip that goes below the window and under the door mirror.  Mine has been drilled through.  I can fix the door, but I will need a new molding.  I can get that from any gen 1 or 2 car though....I'm just not sure how it comes off.

Ironic that the Taurus is in the "Import Section" but you are exporting the roof rack!

The lock on the liftgate has been punched out anyway. The window scraper seal should have speednuts on each end or the mirror holds it in place up front. One of the two. It has to come from a gen1 or 2 wagon.

Old unused signs that were for staging long ago. Now crap is scattered everywhere, like a sea of cars.
