Congratulations on getting it to run like a champ.
The ABS light is likely due to a bad wheel speed sensor, which would be consistent with the speedometer coming and going.
Try to get an Actron Brakescan Tool for about $99 or so plus shipping, and you can scan the codes and get English explanations of which circuit is bad.
I purchased one to diagnose and repair a 1997 Cadillac Deville. The Actron Brakescan tool covers most American vehicles from 1996 to 2005. So, this diagnosis should be right up the alley of this tool.
One can go from there as far as checking out the sensors and the wiring more closely.

I know you did research, but your find should reflect what is below, I would be looking for a frayed or broken wire. Somehow, either from age or possibly a small animal (I do not know where the car was parked) either ate through the line or coincidentally the vehicle speed sensor (VSS) gas failed. That is all this problem is pointing to. You could just replace the VSS, but I would first check the leads and make sure they are connected, not frayed or damaged.
u1039 - Network - Manufacturer Controlled DTC - Manufacturer Controlled - SCP (J1850) Invalid or Missing Data for Vehicle Speed- The PCM received a signal on the SCP bus that indicated Invalid or Missing Data from the vehicle speed sensor.
Basically this means that the vehicle's speed as read by the vehicle speed sensor (VSS) is not working properly.
Symptoms Symptoms of a P0500 DTC may include:
Next, check all wiring and connectors that lead to the speed sensor. The location of the sensor depends on your vehicle. The sensor could be on the rear axle, transmission, or perhaps the wheel hub (brake) assembly.
If the wiring and connectors are OK, then check the voltage at the speed sensor. Again, the exact procedure will depend on your make and model of vehicle.
If everything looks OK, replace the sensor.

Hello, This Code means the vehicle speed sensor is not putting out a signal to one of the components. The connector could be wet or corroded or the bad could just be bad.
