Rust-Free 2000 Ford Taurus Wagon (Graphite Blue)

Recommended Posts

2000 Ford Taurus Wagon

112,000 Miles

COLD a/c and HOT heat!

Was in Georgia until 2015, and oil was applied before first winter in MI, so rust is none-to-minimal.

Priced at $5,500 due to lack of rust (rare for Michigan), low mileage, and all the modifications and extras.

 

Very reliable. Driven regularly for road trips, and around town. Has made several trips between MI and SC.

 

Repair History:

https://www.taurusowners.com/topic/5489-seans-graphite-blue-2000-ford-taurus-wagon/

 

Clean CarFax, no accidents on record.

3.0L V6 “Vulcan” Engine.

“AX4S” Transmission (appears to have been replaced recently before I purchased it in 2015).

 

- Dealer-installed remote start.

- Keyless entry keypad on driver’s door.

- 3rd row seating that folds flat into the cargo area.

- Flip/fold front row center console, can be a 3rd seat or a cupholder/console/armrest.

- Dual sun-visors with dimmable lighting.

- 6-Disc CD Changer in trunk and Cassette deck in-dash.

- 6-way power driver’s seat.

 

Interior was originally leather, and in great condition. Swapped leather seats (excluding center console/armrest) for cloth seats. Entire cloth and leather interiors are in great shape, and both are included with the vehicle. Additionally, a second set of leather cushions for the front seats are included.

 

Included:

- (2) chipped keys and two keyless entry remotes.

- Newer tires with a good amount of tread.

- OEM vinyl cargo shade.

- Original factory floormats for first and second row.

- Additional color-matched carpeting cut to fit the front footwell similar to WeatherTech mats, to protect original carpeting and make cleaning easy.

- Factory touch-up paint from dealership.

- Aluminum spare wheel “donut” (originally from a Thunderbird Super Coupe) with a recently replaced tire (I believe the tire is a 2014)

 

 

Modifications:

- Silicone applied to rear wheel well lip to prevent rust formation.

- Front and rear mudflats, rear are body-molded mounted behind standard flexible flaps, front are only flexible flaps.

- Air bags installed inside rear springs to raise rear to proper riding height. Leaving the hoses uncapped provides enough resistance to give proper ride height. Hoses can easily be capped and pressurized when under load (access through CD-changer panel in trunk).

- Custom, body-color front bumper lip/chin spoiler.

- SHO Wiper Arm on driver’s side.

- Keyless entry keypad added.

- Amber LED running lights installed behind grille. Wired into fuse under-hood, they come on automatically when ignition is on. Easily disabled.

- Heated side mirrors.

- All interior bulbs replaced with LED.

Chrome turn signal stalk cap and lock-pulls on all doors, to match chrome interior door handles.

- Custom-painted instrument cluster with silver gauges and silver trim. All LED bulbs as well.

- Center dash surround from a Platinum Edition Mercury Sable (brushed aluminum finish).

- Custom painted rims from a Thunderbird Super Coupe.

- Plasti-dipped C-pillar and all window trim (easily removable).

- Tint on all windows excluding windshield. Dark enough to look nice, but light enough that I’ve never got a citation for it.

- Centennial-edition headlights purchased NOS OEM with SunTek film applied, so they will never get UV damaged, nor chipped (film is self-healing). Additional OEM chrome (original style) headlamps included, also with SunTek film applied to them.

- Front and rear bumpers painted in 2017. SunTek film also applied to entire front bumper, majority of rear bumper, and a patch for the gas cap to rest on. Work done by AutoShield Columbia, SC.

- Full exterior detail and CQuartz application done in October 2015 by Michalski Detailing in Columbia, SC.

- Woodgrain vinyl applied to license plate surround, original black panel (treated with CQuartz) also included.

 

The not so great…

- Very small chip (about size of a dime) dead center on the windshield. Happened several years ago and has never spread.

- Power locks only work on the passenger’s side. Not sure why, didn’t do a lot of investigating.

- Has a couple small dents and door dings from before I had it, improper color touch-up paint was applied by previous owner, not highly visible.
