    Entire car/parts for sale. 2006 Gold LS 3.9, engine is toast, everything else is good. 69k miles. I am just tired to constantly working on this car and am glad to see it go, honestly. (even though a new engine is 700 bucks shipped)

    Whats NOT GOOD: Front and rear bumpers (my grandfather used the car as a ping pong ball with a steering wheel at 90 years old) Suspension is worn out. Hood and truck lid have some hail damage. Tires are old, battery went bad from sitting.

    So everything else is available. Gold/Tan exterior, and has sunroof with no leaks

    Hood with hail damage, no large dents or damage or anything 35. Trunk lid with hail damage 35

    *I have no idea how to take out the sunroof*

    Exhaust--SOLD
    Engine parts, valve spring, oil pan, etc
    All interior is in fantastic shape (69k miles) GOLD/TAN interior
    That damn AC DSSV (or whatever its called) valve, recently replaced. Is it still good? We know how that goes with that part. Maybe 300 miles on the new part. 10 bucks

    OEM Degas bottle, tested recently and had no cracks, will test again before selling 40
    Radiator 40
    UPPER radiator hose with maybe 1k miles on it 20
    Radiator fan, just replaced with salvage yard unit 75
    Radiator fan shroud and blade (from old unit) Make offer?
    Fuel tank with pump 100
    Factory radio 6 disc-in dash 40
    Steering wheel/Column 50

    AC stuff, no leaks, worked VERY well!
    Compressor 40
    Condenser 30
    Any lines, etc, just ask

    Power steering pump, works great 35
    Alternator 45

    Engine cover ---Make offer
    Chrome wheels 150

    All windows/glass 35 each

    Interior:
    Door panels 35 each
    Complete interior, perfect condition, tan/gold leather 400
    Seat Belts 10 each
    Visors 5 each
    Carpet 40

    Lots of stuff left but cant think of it right now. Just ask

    Will consider selling the whole car. Make offer, and no, I will not take 500 :rolleyes

    I am in the DFW area. I have no idea how to ship large items

    Sorry, I found another one, it is in the mail to me, I left the same message in a conversation I started with you. I had to change out my harmonic balancer and the mech found that it had come loose and banged into the timing cover, cracking it. Here is a pic of the used one I bought on Ebay for $50. It was a time sensitive issue, since I needed the part before Saturday for the mech to be able to work on it .

    Did you check Rock Auto? I got my V8 harmonic balancer for around the same price.

    I dont know about yall, but this is by far the hardest and most expensive car (cost for parts) ive ever worked on. When it was running of course.

    350 bucks for a damn harmonic balancer?! That is exactly why I chose not to just drop a new engine in the thing. The parts on this car are ridiculous!

    Right, I guess when they call us enthusiasts, its meant to be confirmed with a sarcastic smirk. Im on my 3rd LS and its also paid for. I'd rather pay the parts prices to not have to pay a monthly note and dont know what other make and model would give me the same driving satisfaction. And since my son in laws uncle is a Ford certified mechanic, and charges me only about $50/hr I grin and bear it. I have a contact at the parts dept of the Ford dealership that gives me parts at the Rock price. Not all parts, but the ones I can get that are Motorcraft to keep the car in the best possible condition. its 99% ecstacy and 1% sheer terror. The vcgaskets were $110 ea from Ford, but I got Fel Pro from Rock for $24.

    I dont know what happened to the PM i sent you, but I do have that part if you still need it.

    Since the original post wont let me edit it, I forgot to add:

    The seats are the AC/Heated seats, and the transmission was rebuilt by the dealer under warranty at 36k so the tranny only has about 34k on it.

    Hey bud, you might want to remove your number before get spammed or the "IRS" calls you and demands 3500 in Target gift cards or they'll issue a warrant for your arrest

    Is that DSSV thing for the ventilation still available? Have to research a bit but pretty sure the 03 I drove home last night needs it.

    Never mind - the problem was with the operator NOT the device.
