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.

It seems that the hard winter in much of the country has been as rough on some Fords as it has on many people. The Blue Oval is recalling roughly 434,000 vehicles in two separate recalls, and one of them partially caused by the salt used to melt the snow on roads.
Wed, 01 May 2013 11:00:00 EST
The first recall covers 385,750 2001-2004 Escape models in the Midwest, Northeast and Canada because a subframe could rust and eventually fail. This is partially due to the road salt used in those areas, and about 349,000 of the affected vehicles are in the US. To remedy the problem, dealers are installing a reinforcement cross brace on the frame to strengthen them. There has been one crash caused by the failure but no injuries. According to The Detroit News, this is not the first rust-related recall for Ford. It estimates the company has repaired over two million vehicles since 2010 for problems on vehicles related to the iron oxide, including the rear wheel wells of the Freestar minivan.
The second recall covers 48,950 2013-2014 Ford Fusion, Escape, C-MAX and Lincoln MKZ models because welds in their seatbacks don't meet National Highway Traffic Safety Administration standards. The fault affects the front seats, and the sub-standard welds joining the setback to the recliner could increase the chance on injury. There have been no reported injuries or accidents caused by the problem, but there are 42,972 affected vehicles in the US and 4,744 in Canada.
While monthly sales figures might be an easy way of tracking the progression of the auto industry and individual automakers, looking at market share might be more indicative of how each company is actually standing up against its competitors. For the Detroit Three automakers, they have collectively lost almost 30 percent of the market over the last 20 years, but now, for the first time since 1993, Ford, General Motors and Chrysler have each posted market share gains at the same time.
Mon, 01 Jul 2013 11:57:00 EST
According to Automotive News, Ford's share increased the most by 0.7 percent, GM was up 0.5 percent and Chrysler rose marginally by 0.2 percent, giving the Detroit automakers a total market share of 45.6 percent. As for the Japan's Big Three, the article reports that Toyota is up by 0.7 percent, Nissan is down the same amount and Honda has seen "little change."
If you're a fan of Ford racing history, a Mustang worshiper or even just an avid follower of our yearly SEMA coverage, you may have heard the back story on the Race Red Mustang you see above. Back in 1964, Holman & Moody was tapped by the English Alan Mann Racing Team to race-prep three Mustangs for competition in the incredibly arduous 4,000-mile Tour de France Automobile rally. Competing mainly against Jaguar MkII saloons over 10 days and 17 stages, the H&M Mustangs took the top two places in the Touring class and the first-ever racing win for Ford's pony car.
Though the history of that first Mustang win hasn't been incredibly well known here in the States, the subsequent decades have seen plenty of racy versions of the car come and go. Last year at the SEMA show, we covered the brief debut of this living tribute to that piece of racing lore, the Holman & Moody 50th Anniversary TdF Mustang.
This limited-edition Mustang represents a kind of new venture for H&M, as the legendary racing shop has spent the last few decades earning its keep largely by restoring vintage racing cars. The urge to get back into the world of Ford and Mustang was powerful, however, what with the car's 50th anniversary looming and the current generation of 'Stang just about out the door.
