Ford Crown Victoria Lx Sport on 2040-cars
Massapequa, New York, United States
This car is in EXCELLENT condition. I purchased the car approximately a year ago from the original owner and have not really driven as much as I would have liked. I have a car issued to me for work and have three others of my own that I also drive sparingly. But the time has come to sell this car and let someone else take it and drive it as it deserves to be driven. I got the car with around 31K miles and it now has only 35K+ miles...As much as it pains me to sell it, pains me more to have it and not drive it more often.
Take a look at the photos and you must agree the car is AWESOME. These Crown Victoria LX Sports came with a monochromatic paint scheme where the tail light trim and grill are the same color as the car. You will note the grill on this car is black with the honeycomb mesh which came from a Police Interceptor and was swapped out by me as I liked the look of the black matching the sideview mirrors. I do have the original Midnight Grey painted grill and that of course comes with the car.
This car was VERY heavily optioned when bought new and has some rare options like laminated side glass, heated sideview mirrors and six disc changer mounted in the trunk. The laminated glass is a very rare feature and seems to make the ride even more quiet than a Crown Victoria with regular tempered side glass.
This is an LX Sport model so it came from the factory with leather buckets and console, real dual exhaust with H pipe, 3.27 rear, and the handling package which included rear air springs and sway bar. When I bought the car it needed rear shocks so I had them upgraded to Police Interceptor gas shocks. The ride is firm and car responds very well. I have driven "Standard" Crown Victorias, Police Interceptors, LX's and this LX Sport and this car rates just below and Interceptor as far as stiffness of the ride and a much bigger improvemet over Standard and regular LX models. The airsprings are rated just below the stiffness of Interceptor rear springs. Given the heavy loads typically carried by Interceptors the rating of those springs was designed to compensate; with an empty trunk, Interceptors tend to ride high in the rear. This car on the other hand actually has a lower stanch yet since the airsprings are designed to keep the car level even with heavy loads in the trunk. The suspension is tight yet level. Simply put, the car handles great yet at the same time does not sit high in the rear and can handle heavy loads...Its the best of all worlds.
I am also including two BRAND NEW 17 inch Ford aluminum wheels pictured here as well. Please send any questions or concerns you have and I will be sure to answer them timely.

The row between Ford and Ram over who boasts the best-in-class tow rating for heavy duty pickups has revealed a number of things. Chief among them is a report that Ford removes items like the spare tire, jack, radio and center console from its vehicles in a bid to lower its base curb weight and therefore keep the truck's gross vehicle weight rating down.
For those that need a refresher, GVWR is the vehicle's curb weight plus its maximum payload. A lower GVWR allows Ford to station its F-450 among the so-called Class III pickups, despite the fact that internally, it has the makings of a more brutish Class IV truck.
Ford explains away these deletions, saying a customer could order their vehicle in such a manner. It has also come to light that Ford is not the only automaker to engage in such practices.
Fiat Chairman John Elkann has been turning to an unusual source for advice on the car business. While speaking during an interview with The Detroit News, Elkann said he often asks Bill Ford Jr. for advice on how to proceed with the turnaround at Chrysler. "It's great to have the opportunity to share this with someone like Bill, who has experienced many things and gone through many things ... especially linked to Detroit." Elkann said.
As the Agnelli family heir, Elkann has inherited a long and fruitful friendship with the Ford family. While Giovanni Agnelli built his first Fiat four years before Henry Ford created his first vehicle, it was Ford that showed Agnelli the benefits of mass production and helped pave the way for what would become the Fiat empire.
Giovanni's grandson, Gianni, helped mentor Bill Ford when he was elected chairman of Ford Motor Company. Now, Ford is returning the favor by helping Elkann navigate the automotive industry's tumultuous waters.
We're of the mind that each and every dyno should come with Murphy's Law painted in big, visible letters down the side. For every ten successful dyno runs out there, it seems there's one where events to horribly wrong. Take, for example, the video below. The clip shows what happens when a Ford Shelby GT500 and a mobile dyno have a bit of a disagreement at the Performance Expo 24 in Sherbrooke, Quebec. We won't spoil the results for you, but we will say there's some substantial carnage involved.
It's unclear just how much damage ensues from the dust up or whether anyone was harmed in the incident, but from the looks of things, everyone made it out without serious injury. If only we could say the same for the machines involved. Check out the video below.
