Ford Crown Victoria, P73, Fully Equipped Responder Car on 2040cars
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.

Anyone who's bought one of those old school metal shift knobs knows they're really cool until they sit in a parking lot in the sun for a few hours. Then they're not cool at all. Likewise, features such as the aluminum dash on the 2015 Ford Mustang can be all kinds of neat right up until the sun hits it just the right way and sends shards of blinding light through the cabin. The Ford Visual Performance and Evaluation Lab is where engineers figure out how to make sure that doesn't happen.

Cars like said Mustang are parked inside the 30-foot reflecting dome under 6,000 watts of lights that can mimic the sun at any time of day and in any weather condition. Engineers can then spend cold, overcast days inside, testing for interior legibility, glare and reflections on every interior and exterior surface as if it were bright and sunny. They can also learn how a car's sheetmetal and colors will look out of doors, all year round.
Ford showed off the lighting lab without the music and interviews three years ago when the Explorer was being prepared. You can watch it at work again in the video below, and read about it in the press release below that.
Ford CEO Alan Mulally may be about to announce his long-rumored retirement from the Blue Oval, according to a pair of insiders who spoke to Bloomberg. An official statement on the succession could arrive as soon as May 1. Chief Operating Officer Mark Fields is rumored to step up as the new CEO. The company is said to be readying the announcement soon to ensure an orderly transition of power, according to the insiders.

Mulally's retirement from Ford has been a hot topic for a while. He was seriously rumored last year to be leaving the automaker to take over as the CEO of Microsoft. The board even said at one point that it was okay with them if he stepped down early. However, the CEO maintained he would stay with the business through at least the end of 2014. Fields has been rumored as a frontrunner to take over the top spot at the company since he was promoted to COO.
For the moment, Ford isn't officially confirming any of these plans. "We don't comment on speculation. We do have succession plans in place for our key leadership. We take succession planning very seriously," said Susan Krusel, Ford Global News Manager, to Autoblog.
A couple of weeks ago we brought you footage and official times of the new Chevy Camaro Z/28 lapping the Nürburgring. With a 7:37.47 lap time, the Z/28 emerged as the fastest muscle car ever to lap the circuit. But what was missing from that picture was how fast the king of all Mustangs, the Shelby GT500, could manage to lap the Nordschleife.
Ford never released any information or footage of the GT500 on the Nürburgring that we were aware of - that is, until the guys at SVTPerformance.com put in a request for Mustang videos. Among the clips they received was never-seen, in-car footage of the Shelby GT500 lapping the circuit. And boy did it hustle.
Although not quite official, the video seems to show the GT500 lapped the venerated German track in a touch under 7:40. That would make it a tick or two faster than the Camaro ZL1 - but what of the Z/28? By Chevy's quoted time, the Z/28 is still faster than the GT500, but SVTPerformance suggests GM may have fudged the numbers a bit and scrubbed half a second or so off their lap time.
