2002 Crown Victoria with a ls1/4l60e swap!
Reserve is set to what I paid for the motor and trans alone!!
The car started life as a P71 Police Interceptor with a 4.6 dohc motor... the motor and trans were pulled about 25k miles ago and replaced with a LS1 and a 4l60e out of a 2001 Firebird
The drivetrain had roughly 45k miles on it at the time of the swap so now its around 60-65k miles on the motor and trans the body has ~180k on it but will go up because I drive the car quite often
Mechanically the car runs drives and stops like it should all the gauges work including the fuel gauge and speedometer. The swap was very well done its extremely clean and looks factory
Cosmetically it could use a little work although I am very meticulous with my vehicles so I may be exaggerating a little bit. The car was just completely repainted black, it looks very good with the exception of a run in the drivers fender (I tried to take a picture but the camera wouldnt pick it up)
and also there is a little spider cracking on the front bumper.
The interior is also very respectable but not up to my standards the seats are out of an 05 crown vic (very comfortable) theres some odds and end interior pieces that the previous owner had painted black with interior paint that are starting to chip but I guess thats no biggie im just trying to be as honest as possible. The seats have some minor staining that should clean up well and the black carpet has some wrinkles in it (again just trying to nitpick it)
The AC blew cold all last summer and was cold this past spring but its slowly starting to get warm I'm sure it just needs a recharge. The heat blows hot like it should, radio works great has a 7" in dash touch screen radio cd/mp3/dvd player
still has a working police spot light and all the wiring for the camera and lights etc so if you wanted to turn it back into a funtioning cop car it would be hard at all!
The wheels are 15x9 Weld drag lites on the rear and 15x7 in the front with bg goodrich drag radials on the rear. it also has air shocks on the rear that can be raised or lowered to your liking
All in all its a turn key driver you can show up start it right up and drive it home with no worries at all it is extremely reliable and you can expect 20-21 mpg and 16-18mpg around town very cant stress enough how nice the drivetrain is in this car!
Please message me if youd like to come see the car before you bid, I have nothing to hide id prefer people to come see it so they can appreciate it!
Cash or Paypal ONLY Ive been burned before so I am clarifying now no money orders no certified checks no bank checks no loans from the banks no IOUs no rubber checks lol Good luck and Happy Bidding!

They're pretty darn similar. And yet our views are oh so different.
If you guys could read the transcripts of our editors' chat room, you'd know that we're a pretty argumentative bunch. It's always good-spirited stuff (well, usually), but when we're not obsessively covering this or that, we're usually fighting about one car being better than another. We're all enthusiasts here, and our automotive tastes run the gamut from the weird and unusual to the decidedly mainstream - we all feel strongly about specific cars in a given segment. While it usually makes for good conversation, if we're passionate enough, it can turn into a tomato-throwing showdown.
It's hard to think back now, but the same man overseeing the design of the 2013 Ford Fusion also presided over a rather lackluster period in Ford design, highlighted by vehicles like the Five Hundred and Freestyle. With the redesigned Fusion receiving high praise, J Mays tells Automotive News that he feels vindicated from criticisms suggesting he's not a daring enough designer.
Tue, 19 Aug 2014 16:27:00 EST
When Mays took over as lead of design in 1997, he admits to having quite an ego ("My head would barely fit through the door some days. I've long since gotten over myself") and the workload to match. With the Blue Oval's portfolio full of premium brands like Aston Martin, Jaguar, Land Rover and Volvo at that point, along with the bread-and-butter Ford, Lincoln and Mercury models, Mays certainly had quite the challenge.
It was in the mid-2000s that Mays took over just the premium brands, and took on the new title of Chief Creative Officer. At the time, Mays endured some criticism for looking backwards to retro styling, rather than setting a new standard for American car design - criticism that Mays says he is free from with the all-new Fusion.
Recalls! 2014 will be forever remembered as the year that automakers went recall crazy, with millions and millions of vehicles adding up to crush previous recall records well before the end of the year. Adding to that tally is Ford, which announced a call-back for 163,000 vehicles.
Leading that charge are the 2.0-liter, EcoBoost four-cylinder engines of the Ford Focus ST and Ford Escape. 160,000 of the 2013 and 2014 models have bad wiring harnesses that can disrupt the signals traveling to the powertrain control module. That, in turn, could lead to a check engine light, reduced power and stalling. Notably, Ford hasn't recalled any other vehicles that feature the 2.0 EcoBoost, such as the Fusion, Taurus or Explorer.
While the Focus ST and Escape constitute the vast majority of recalled vehicles, they aren't the only problem children in the Ford family. 1,300 Transit passenger vans from model year 2015 were recalled due to brake fluid leaks, while another 600 Transit cargo variants were recalled after Ford discovered the windowless sliding doors could come open in the event of a side-impact crash. Dealers will replace the sealing washers on the passenger variants and add a reinforcement plate on the cargo models, The Detroit News reports.
