bamsho Posted January 22, 2017 Report Share Posted January 22, 2017 The very first Ford Taurus SHO prototype, circa 1986. Built by my dad Michael Klein and fellow UAW worker Will Johnston at Carron & Company, in Inkster MI. They adapted this Yamaha V6 engine to a production Escort 5-speed transmission and added a Mustang hood scoop to make it fit into this 1985 Taurus sedan. Perhaps the only existing photos of the first SHO. The car was driven around the block a couple of times, loaded into a shipping container, and shipped to Japan presumably where Yamaha could study the prototype's mounting hardware and Mazda could adapt and design the transmission for the 1989 production model.
