General Information

Dead Leaf Brown
LX V6 5-speed
When I needed cheap and immediate transportation, my cousin sold me this car that belonged to her late husband.
1991 Ford Probe (Dead Leaf Brown)


The 3.0 Liter V6 engine that will not die.

The replacement chrome oil cap.

Also shown is a aftermarket low restriction performance muffler that gives off a great sound from the exhaust of this V6 engine.
I alternate between the original steering wheel with an aftermarket cover and a leather wrapped Ford Fusion steering wheel with the stitching replaced with red thread. The exploded airbag cover has been sealed back shut and covered with black vinyl. The steering wheel controls do not function for anything but I do have them wired to a 9-volt battery hidden under the horn pad with a mini rocker switch mounted in an existing access hole at the back of the wheel.

I have installed under the dash a set of color changeable LED's that I wired to operate with the dome light and dash lights.

I have also installed white faced blue glow gauge faces and a remote door locking system with an electric hatch release.

You will also notice my home made sunvisor from wood because the original disintegrated and I cannot find a replacement.

In the hatch area I have installed white LED strips under the inside trim panel ledges for great illumination at night.
All original exterior except I added Ghia badges because I liked them.

Take in the exquisite view of the lovely original faded patina of the dead leaf brown paint wearing down to the primer. If I ultimately keep this car I would like to paint it a shade of grayish blue with a white roof al la Mini style.

The Mustang badge is a joke just for the photo opportunity.
I installed a Dual brand touch screen double din receiver audio unit with a CD/DVD player and iPod/iPhone connectivity.

I had to fabricate a center dash vent housing because the original was broken and I could not find one to replace it. It's made of wood covered in vinyl. It uses a Chrysler Sebring/Mitsubishi Eclipse round a/c vent and a belt clip holder for an iPhone with the clip part removed and holder mounted flat to hold my iPhone for tunes and navigation. Aftermarket replacement speakers are mounted all the way around plus some inexpensive tweeters are mounted to the inside triangle where the door mirrors are located.

You can also see the white ball shifter knob mounted on a replacement short throw shifter with a red stitched vinyl boot. Shown below are aftermarket aluminum pedal covers.
It still suspends.
