For Sale (With Pictures This Time!): Rusty Crown Vic

I’ve got a wedding to go to this weekend, which I don’t want interrupted with random people calling me about a cheap rusty car, so this will be posted for sale publicly on Monday-ish, but here’s the early edition for Oppo. Feedback (both the ad and how far into CP the price is) welcome.


2002 Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor, 205k miles.

Needs fuel pump (has been sitting since early February). Gas tank is leaking a bit, should be replaced along with pump (~$100 from Rockauto).


4.6L V8, runs well (with a working fuel pump), no smoke. Factory rated at 235 hp and 275 lb-ft, returning around 16mpg city, 20-22 highway.

4R70W (4-speed auto w/OD) transmission shifts well.

3.27:1 limited slip (Trac-Lok) 8.8” rear axle, disk brakes, newer bearings/seals, limited slip works well.


Power windows all work, A/C is very cold, heat is very hot. Aftermarket radio works.

This is the Police Interceptor (“P71”) which has an upgraded suspension and engine tune compared to civilian models.


Factory steel wheels with Firestone Winterforce snow tires, plenty of tread (these tires combined with the limited slip axle make this car great in the snow). Second set of factory steel wheels in trunk, need new tires.

Many relatively new parts, this car never let me down in 5+ years of daily driving. The body is very rusty; the frame is ok (one bad spot behind passenger’s rear wheel, pictured). The drivetrain is in good shape. There are several exhaust leaks, which is common with this engine.


The engine is fitted with a 70mm throttle body (stock is 65mm) with a ported plenum, slightly improving performance. I have the stock parts if desired.

I have a bunch of other random spare parts (some used, some new) as well. Clean title. Passed e-check November 2018.


$750 OBO as-is – Call or text Matt at [redacted]

Oppo Discount applies, if any of you are mad actually interested let me know below and we can exchange contact info. I’m also accepting feedback on the ad, as I’m really bad at selling stuff. I don’t know why it’s centered, I copy/pasted from Word and can’t get it back to left-aligned in Kinja.
