It has been a while since I have sold a car here, but I thought it might be time to try again. Up for sale is a 2011 Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor. The car is being sold with NO RESERVE! It was used by a sheriff's department in southern Wisconsin and is in about as good of a condition as you can get! They have a history of turning cars over quickly and I am sure this one off the first retired 2011 cruisers on eBay. It does show 122,859 miles. They are all highway miles as that department does not contract with any cities in the county. This Crown Vic comes with many desired options, and has the rare Arizona Beige Metallic color. The interior is Light Camel, and is INCREDIBLY clean! It is in great condition, and it's hard to do better!
Some small changes were made for the 2011 model year. The front seat bolsters and headrests were redone. It does feel different than previous Crown Vics. The bolster switch was relocated to the right bottom of the seat. Side airbags became standard equipment. This car is equipped with the 'plug and play' option. All of the wiring for the strobe lights and the light bar is still there. The wig wag module it still mounted under hood and I am sure would still work if powered. All wiring is hidden away, but can be accessed.
A walk around the car shows a nearly perfect body. I found 1 ding on a quarter panel, and 1 scuff on the rear bumper cover. They are so small that the camera couldn't pick them up! It had a couple of stone chips of which I touched up. This car does not have holes all over it either. They are only in the roof. The only hole that is sealed and plugged was for the light bar. The radio antennas and the GPS antenna are still on the car creating no holes. Spotlight works good. Headlights are crystal clear. All glass in the car is perfect as well with no chips, cracks, or pits. Overall, I would call the body a 9-9.5. They are hard to find this straight!
The interior is the Light Camel color. In police form, it is very hard to keep clean. This is the cleanest I have seen in this color. Apparently, no one ever had coffee in this car! Rare options like carpet and cloth back seat come with this car. It looks like none of the seats have been sat in as they are that clean. It appears that some minor upholstery work was done on the back of the drivers seat. Likely rubbed through cloth from the partition. The steering wheel has some dye rubbed off of it. Driving gloves, I am guessing... The carpet only has very minor dirt stains, but they are hard to find. The sheriff's department did swipe the floor mats out of it, though. The headliner does show some minor wear from the partition. Look at the pics. Can it come cleaner?
The 4.6 SOHC V8 engine starts and runs perfectly. The motor can run on gasoline or E85. It pulls very nicely and has the power that it is supposed to have. The transmission is spot on with no erratic or sloppy shifts. The car is equipped with the 3.27 locking axle. It just received a Mobil 1 oil change (drum here to prove it) with an OE oil filter. Everything works as it should. There are no check engine, or any other trouble lights on. Goodyear Eagle RSA tires show 50% on front and 70% on the rear. Just turn the key and fire it up, and go anywhere you want.
Unlike other eBay sellers, I try to provide a COMPLETE description of the car. If you have any questions, please ask. I will respond promptly. Once again, the Crown Vic is being sold with NO RESERVE and a low price of $6250 to start. You can't find 2011s this clean at the auction for this price! I will accept cash or certified funds as payment. Payment must be made within 7 days of completion of auction, and removal within 14 days of completion of auction. If you want to fly and drive, I will pick you up at Mitchell International in Milwaukee and take you to the car with no charge. Good luck!

In the 1950s and early 60s, the dawn of nuclear power was supposed to lead to a limitless consumer culture, a world of flying cars and autonomous kitchens all powered by clean energy. In Europe, it offered the then-limping continent a cheap, inexhaustible supply of power after years of rationing and infrastructure damage brought on by two World Wars.

The development of nuclear-powered submarines and ships during the 1940s and 50s led car designers to begin conceptualizing atomic vehicles. Fueled by a consistent reaction, these cars would theoretically produce no harmful byproducts and rarely need to refuel. Combining these vehicles with the new interstate system presented amazing potential for American mobility.
But the fantasy soon faded. There were just too many problems with the realities of nuclear power. For starters, the powerplant would be too small to attain a reaction unless the car contained weapons-grade atomic materials. Doing so would mean every fender-bender could result in a minor nuclear holocaust. Additionally, many of the designers assumed a lightweight shielding material or even forcefields would eventually be invented (they still haven't) to protect passengers from harmful radiation. Analyses of the atomic car concept at the time determined that a 50-ton lead barrier would be necessary to prevent exposure.
Comedian Jay Leno is changing gears from driving fast cars to checking out some of the police cruisers that regularly chase down and dish out punishment to those fast cars. In this episode of Jay Leno's Garage, we get the lowdown on the modifications made to the Ford Explorer for the Interceptor package (which looks pretty tough in its California Highway Patrol livery).

The new Ford is cool, but cooler still are the pack of classic CHP cars that Jay has along for the episode. A 1982 Mustang, 1966 Dodge Polara, 1970 Mercury Monterey and 2000 Crown Victoria are all in the shop. Better still, Jay lays out an argument for ones of the classic cruisers as the best cop car of all time. Get your guesses in now, and then scroll down to watch and learn.
The horsepower wars are tightening among the Detroit Three, as the Ford Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro and Dodge Challenger are getting bigger, more powerful, and yes, more fuel efficient.
That came into sharper focus this week as more information was revealed about the most insane Challenger ever - the 707-horsepower Hellcat - followed quickly by Ford's in-depth showcase of the 2015 Mustang in Dearborn.
It's shaping up to be a golden age for enthusiasts, and what's under the hood is becoming more important than ever.
