I suppose that the best you can hope for is park it in the bad part of town with the keys in the ignition and pray someone steals it

I have a 94 Ford Probe SE with some small problems for sale. I just completed the engine swap in my other car so its time to let my beater move on.....

And when I mean small I mean insignificant.

First lets take the engine. its an I4 2.0, runs, burns no oil, hasn't had an oil change in about 15k miles (but topped off periodically) has no power steering, no AC (compressor froze) eats alternator belts constantly, and has been driven through puddles up to a foot deep.

The transmission is a smooth shifting 5 speed with oversized aftermarket flashing shift knob with no shift boot or center console. Both axles have been prevously replaced and the driver's side outer boot is held on with 2 meticulously placed zipties.

The body.... This car has seen its share of bumper from many cars. it has a busted bumper, no wheel splash guards, the radiator framerail is knocked in a few inches the lights no longer go down (modded myself), and the windshield is cracked. It has been involved in mutiple accidents, thankfully none fatal. But as a result both airbags are deployed. And apperently the recall for the 1994 model year involving the airbags warping the dash were never performed.

The suspension is a work of art apparently the only thing holding the passenger A-arm on is a the swaybar with the aftermarket links from a previous group buy. The rear swaybar has broken off completely and is tied to the frame (so it doesn't drag on the ground) with a plastic bag from target. The shocks are toast, its floaty past 85 but holds well at 50. The rims are stock SE 15 inch alloys on the front with mismatched tires, while the rears are much bigger 16 inch rims from a 1995 monte carlo Z34 sporting massive 225 60 16's which are also with mismatched tires (slight rubbing).

As a precautionary measure I'm going to inform you upon purchase of the car I need the rear rims back. I have the other 15 inch rims but one tire shredded on the highway and the other flew off the car and bounced into oncoming traffic.

I will be using the radio so thats not coming with the car but the rear speakers work great! the stock amp is still in the car but that prevents me from using the front speakers beacuse the amp only wants to power the rears. The driver's side window doesn't go down anymore, the passenger window does but it needs help on the first few inches down (mirror met a garage door).

The interior needs a little cleaning its light blueish/gray cloth. there are a few cigarette holes in the passenger seat and the head liner. The glove compartment will not stay closed (dash is warped see above) the center console is currently not installed but I do still have it, somewhere.... the rug is a disaster I probably shouldn't have taken out the cup holder.

The trunk is spacious! Thanks to that good for nothing spare tire it popped a mile or two down the street when it was raining and I just didn't have a spare, therefor, its a good idea if you get AAA.

The car had an alarm once, its no longer installed, (still have it) i had to remove it since the car refused to start with it. Theres just a little trick you have to do to get it started because the battery cables are a little corroded but that can wait until the test drive.

Its silver, with a blue passenger side mirror. the hood is bent, theres no hiding that but I assure you it is the OEM hood. Its probably due for a clutch, and brakes, most of the curtesy lights are blown and the central vents don't have those fins to direct the air. On that note the heat works excellent, and the radiator was fushed and filled in july and hasn't needed a drop of antifreeze since. A small leak in the radiator is patched.

The exhaust has a catco high flow cat and newer piping all the way to the muffler, this thing purrs...........

$1000 or

best offer <--- i'm kidding about the 1k i'll take the highest offer, i can't keep this thing around too much longer bidding starting at $50
