Ford Crown Victoria, P73, Fully Equipped Responder Car on 2040-cars
Youngsville, Louisiana, United States
I'm selling my 2006 Ford Crown Victoria as my family is outgrowing it and I've got to get an SUV. This vehicle has a Texas Salvage title; it was in a front end collision early in its life. All repairs were made back to factory new conditions, and the frame was not bent. I have all the maintenance records on the vehicle since new.
The car has 139,xxx miles on it and is my daily driver, so the mileage will change but not by much. It is the P73 package, meaning it has the same engine as the P71 (Police Interceptor) but have the full power front bench and cloth seating all the way around. It also has the smoother suspension package from the one in the P71.
I bought it from a Houston PD officer, and used it for First Responder work while living in Houston. It is equipped with hideaway LEDS (R&B), a Federal Signal Smart Siren, and wig-wag headlight flasher. The emergency equipment will come with the vehicle only if you have the proper credentials to have such equipment.
I'm asking $4500 but that price is very much negotiable. I'd also entertain trades involving an SUV. You can call or text me at 985 two three two, two seven 78 if you have questions. The vehicle is in Lafayette, LA and is for sale locally so I reserve the right to end the auction early.
You will be responsible for coming to get the vehicle. I am happy to assist in getting the vehicle to the shipper, but once the payment is made, she's yours. I have described the vehicle to the best of my knowledge. Understand this, it is a daily driver, has scuffs and scratches on it, and no dents. You are welcome to come check out the vehicle or ask questions prior to your bid. With all that being said, the vehicle is being sold AS IS and WHERE IS, with no warranties expressed or implied.
I will require a $500 deposit within 24 hours of auction close, with full payment being made within 48 hours of that payment. I will re-list the vehicle if the payment is not made by that point and will leave the appropriate feedback.
Thanks for looking at my car.

Ford CEO Alan Mulally has less than a week left in his role of leading the Blue Oval before he hands off duties to Mark Fields on July 1. It doesn't look like Mulally is going to be shuffling off into his retirement anytime soon, though. The 68-year-old is being rather secretive about his next move, but he tells Bloomberg in a recent interview that he plans to stay close to Ford. Also, if Fields wants to ask for any advice, Mulally is happy to help.

Mulally took over at Ford in 2006 and led the company through a seriously rough patch in the auto industry. According to Bloomberg, he became famous or his Thursday meetings where executives were forced to deal with any problems before they could leave. Since announcing his retirement from Ford in May, Mulally has been insuring a smooth transition of power by traveling the world to all of company's major locations and saying goodbye to employees and dealers.
In terms of the future at Ford, Mulally doesn't predict any big changes in management style because the rest of the executive team is staying in place. He believes that Fields is going to maintain the processes already in place to keep things going. After all, it seems to be working. The company is predicting a return to profitability in Europe next year and is opening 88 new dealers in China. If the business could get its recalls under control, things could get even better.
Today, hotrodding has a pretty staid definition. Take one classic American car, add one classic American V8, sprinkle with tire smoke and you pretty much have every hot rod to roll out of a shop in the last 40 years. Mike Borroughs knows it wasn't always this way. Once upon a time, getting your bucket to go faster meant grabbing whatever parts were lazing about the yard, bolting them together with a bit of ingenuity and laughing your way down the quarter mile. It's in that spirit that Burroughs built his 1928 Ford Model A.

Rather than turn to the tired flathead or the common Chevrolet small block, Burroughs plucked a 4.0-liter V8 from a 1995 BMW 7 Series. With 300 horsepower and 300 pound-feet of torque, the engine has no trouble shuffling the old A around town. He had to build a custom chassis to get everything to cooperate, but the result is a 1,500-pound heathen that looks built to harass dry lake beds. You can check it out in the video below. Be warned, the soundtrack by Hanni el Khatib may not be safe for work - awesomeness of this caliber rarely is.
Former Dirty Jobs host Mike Rowe has one less job as of today - the pitchman is no longer a pitchman for Ford, with yesterday's announcement from Rowe ending a seven-year partnership between the TV host and the Blue Oval.
Rowe made the announcement to political pundit Glenn Beck, saying the two are "going in different directions" and wishing Ford "every possibly success that any car company could ever have," according to The Detroit News. Rowe and Ford got together in 2005, right around the time the 51-year-old came to prominence as the host of Dirty Jobs and the narrator for Deadliest Catch, two of the Discovery Channel's most popular shows.
Take a look below for a few video snippets of Rowe's tenure at Ford.
