Beautiful 1995 Ford Taurus SHO Is Selling For A Hefty Price: Video

While we have a lot of love for the departed Ford Taurus, even we must admit that the four-door sedan isn’t exactly a collector’s item. But if there was one that could be called that, it’s the Ford Taurus SHO. Originally produced between 1989 and 1999, the performance-oriented sedan then returned for one last run from 2010-2019. The early models have certainly attracted a big fan base, and this 1995 Ford Taurus SHO up for sale at Gateway Cars is one of the nicer examples we’ve seen in a while.

However, the asking price for this SHO does seem a bit high at $25,000. It certainly looks to be in immaculate condition, inside and out, and the mileage isn’t bad at just a hair over 109k. But we’re not so sure that the market has changed to the point where the SHO, no matter how nice, is worth this kind of dough. But for those that disagree, this blue beauty is waiting.

Like all manual SHOs from this model year, the car is powered by a Yamaha-built 3.0L SHO V6 that produces 220 horsepower and 200 pound-feet of torque. It’s mated to a proper five-speed manual transmission for a fun and spirited drive.

The SHO also looks the part with a complete lack of chrome and a unique front and rear bumpers, side cladding fog lights, and grille, as well as dual exhaust, with SHO badges on the sides and rear.

The Ford Taurus SHO has become a bit of a cult favorite in recent years, but it isn’t exactly a highly sought-after model, either. Regardless, it isn’t often we come across examples this nice, and truthfully, we doubt there are many.

So on that accord alone, perhaps this SHO is worth its somewhat lofty asking price, after all.

We’ll have more on the Taurus SHO soon, so be sure and subscribe to Ford Authority for more Ford Taurus news and around-the-clock Ford news coverage.

    Sweet! SHO Super High Output! I didn’t realize they made them with a stick back in 95. Conan O’Brien bought one new in 91 and still has it! Love these 80s and 90s classics! Lumina Z34…Impala SS what others? I like the Mustang 5.0 from this era. The convertible was sharp!

      Impala SS = Caprice with different emblems.

    Mmmm, I wonder if Ford had transferred some of this mojo into the Fusion if that would have helped invigorate that line up? Imagine, a SHO Fusion! I can envision it…I think I would have been tempted…

      Your right Mark a Fusion SHO would have been another game changer in the sedan market like the 89-95 Taurus. The 2010 model simply got to big on the outside but not no more room than the Fusion on the inside. We had a 95 SHO 5spd so much fun to drive, I would have bought a new Fusion SHO 6spd.

    Yes why was that? The cramped Taurus SHO cabin? The Fusion was much more roomier but smaller. What kind of design causes that? BTW the recent Fusion Sport V6 AWD with quad exhaust was SHO like.

    that’s a stick car with a 3.0. not all were built with the 3.2 only auto’s got the 3.2. all sticks got the 3.0.

    1. Joe

      The autos had an extra 5 or 10 HP as well if I remember. I had a 95 auto . Great for a couple of years until the tranny that belonged to a Windstar or Aerostar gave up. Two rebuilds later I sold it.

    Ford and Yamaha, my two loved ones.
