1988 Scorpio for sale..

Post by house » Wed Aug 16, 2017 11:42 am

The Scorpio is now out of storage and has at least been hosed off. It looks
pretty good. It is in Strongsville, Ohio, 15 miles south of Cleveland. I
took a few pictures after hosing it off.
See them at the url

I haven't a clue as to how much to ask for her. The condition is good, some excellent, such as, just before I put her in storage, the transmission was professionally rebuilt. I keep good records that reflect anything I claim. The frame looks pristine, as it was only driven one or times in winter. I am open to offers.

I neglected to mention that she also has a custom bent, SS exhaust system. Part out value (rebuilt trans, SS exhaust) would cover any reasonable offer. Before snow flies, she'll have to go to a salvage yard. I really, really don't want that outcome. Reasonable offers will take her.

Bob, from what I've been told by a famous Nissan/Mistsu transmission guy, these are the guys to go to when cost isn't an object but dependability is. https://transmissioncenter.org/product- ... ford/a4ld/

Hi Bob, Sorry for the tardy reply. I've taken to relying on folks emailing me if they have interest and fail to check the posts at this site.
The trans was "finally" rebuilt by a guy named Norm that owned a shop in North Olmsted, Ohio called "AllMatic." He repaired transmissions his entire life and only a couple years after completely rebuilding mine, he retired and sold his successful business, built on his reputation and good name. He replaced all parts called for in total rebuild, including the torque converter. He painstaking catalogued everything he did to help me take a rip off rival to court, who charged me for a rebuild, but did nothing - even re-used the old OEM gaskets. He even went to court with me and asked for nothing in return. I paid him an extra bump anyway. He went because he was angry that someone would so wantonly tarnish the craft. Hell of a guy.
I don't know what you mean by "upgrade parts." I just know it was rebuilt right, by and honest craftsman.
