1988 Mercury Sable GS Wagon Up For Auction

In recent months, we’ve seen a variety of Ford Taurus and Mercury Sable wagons hit various collector car auction sites across the web, a selection that includes models such as a 1991 Taurus wagon with a mere 45k miles on the clock, a 1987 LX that has actually changed hands a couple of times in recent years, and a somewhat strange 1988 Mercury Sable wearing 1950s-era Ford body parts. Now, those looking for something a bit more conventional can get it in the form of this 1988 Mercury Sable GS wagon, which is now up for grabs at Bring a Trailer.

This 1988 Mercury Sable actually hails from Canada, as it lived in British Columbia for three decades before it was acquired by the seller last year. Now, it’s looking for a new home with around 120k kilometers – or 75k miles – showing on the odometer, and it’s in solid condition, to boot. On the outside, the wagon features Medium Sandalwood Metallic paint, along with a couple of dings and scratches, as one might expect.

The interior is in nice condition as well, with Light Sandalwood cloth seats, woodgrain trim, and a few amenities including a heater, a rear window defroster, crank windows, a factory AM/FM radio, and rear seat ashtrays for those times when one’s passengers need a smoke. The family hauler rolls on a set of 14-inch wheels with whitewall tires, which also fits the theme quite nicely.

Power for this Mercury Sable wagon comes from the 3.0L V6 Vulcan engine, which was factory-rated to send 140 horsepower and 160 pound-feet of torque to the front wheels via a four-speed automatic transmission. The seller has done a bit of maintenance to prepare the wagon for sale, and it’ll certainly be interesting to see just what someone is willing to pay to bring it home.

    Still a nicely designed car after all these years. Had a burgundy LS.

  2. Perhaps not

    90s era?

    Sad how rare these are… Cannot find my dream red 86 LX Taurus wagon no matter how hard I search or put up wanted ads for it.
