1989 Ford Probe LX


The Ford Probe was one of the rare showcars that made it to the street with few changes. It was very futuristic looking with faired side mirrors, strut tower bulges and three spoke wheels. The interior even had an instrument cluster that tilted with the steering wheel and a digital speedometer and tachometer.

Ours was the LX version in Wild Strawberry Metallic. The LX shoehorned a Taurus V6 into the engine bay that was meant for a I4. Though the Turbo was faster 0 to 60 the LX had more linear power delivery and was also an enthusiasts choice.
