1983 Ford Crown Victoria LTD Coupe 5.0 from North America
Ford... Please bring back this awesome car...
A couple of sensors because of age.
Basically that's it; an awesome, awesome car.
I bought a 1984 CV from a friend's mother and I sold it.. After I sold it, I missed it so much I had to run out and find another.
I found my 83 Coupe, loaded, one owner beauty.
Original (garaged) white paint.
A Burgundy velour comfy interior, with power everything.
Alloy fin wheels from Ford, and I put the original wide white wall style tires back on her from Coker Tire.
She is smooth, quiet, comfortable, and a joy to take on trips.
I also own a CLK 430 convertible Mercedes, and I ALWAYS take the Crown as it's way, way more comfortable. Plus it gets so much attention everywhere I take her.
Ford is absolutely NUTS, to have ever ditched this awesome model..
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

1983 Crown Victoria Coupe? Wow, nice car, those are very rare.
I used to own a 1990 Crown Vic LX, fully loaded, white with blue velour interior. Senior owned and mint shape, loved that car! Only sold it because someone offered me 3x what I paid for it and I couldn't refuse at the time.
My friend had a late model BMW, and would prefer to ride in the Vic as it was more comfortable, spacious for passengers, and a smoother ride overall.
I agree, these are great cars and I would buy another in a heartbeat!

Wish I could find an LTD coupe, I love the look. My 1980 Mark VI is basically an LTD coupe with the Lincoln name. I've had 2 '79 LTD sedans (1st year of the Panther body), a '79 Grand Marquis (same thing), a '88 Grand Marquis, and a '91 LTD CV. All were wonderful vehicles and rock-solid reliable.
One was T-boned and 2 others wrecked head-on. None of us were ever hurt, and each vehicle was able to drive home without a wrecker. If people knew how safe these were for families and how reliable they are, they'd be a lot more popular. I cringe when I see these great cars needlessly wrecked on movie sets.
