My First Explorer: 96 Sport

96 Explorer Sport....bought it from my friend's mom for $500. 145k on the dash. Her boyfriend was a Ford Service Tech so it has been very well taken care of mechanically. I'm not a certified tech but I work on cars and race cars so I know my way around a garage. The clutch feels brand new (its not) and there aren't many squeaks and rattles. It had been sitting up for several months so it has bad gas in it cause some idle issues. I know it needs a tune up and oil change as well, but other than that, everything engine-wise is up to snuff. Most of the work needed is either interior or exterior and maybe a couple bushings. But anyway, here it is


Looks like a steal for $500, most of them at that price have been crashed or don't run, nice find.
