1984 Ford Crown Victoria LTD Full Size 5.0 2bbl from North America


I like the look of the 1984-1987 Ford LTD Crown Victoria better than the 1988-1991 model


Nothing yet.

I have just bought this car in November 2001. Right now I have to repair the frame below the right front fender to the rear passenger door and do a brake job for a safety, and whatever the car needs for an Ontario Drive Clean if anything.

General Comments:

This car was originally purchased to fix up my 1988 Ford LTD Crown Victoria LX. Now I am using this car to replace the 1988 car as it is body wise and engine wise in better condition.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I just got an 84' Mercury Grand Marquis. It is an awesome car compared to my 95' Taurus. Has a few things for safety and also has to do the Ontario Drive Clean test. Body is in good shape, but it seems to have electrical problems. Not bad for $750, I cannot argue with that.

I have a 1984 Crown Vic, and I am having stalling and idle problems.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

I have a 1984 ford crown vic ltd.. and I had some trouble with it overheating and stalling. May main concern is how much gas it uses.. If anyone has any advice please email me at drummer4life1117@yahoo.com. Thanks.

Add Lucas upper cylinder lubricant when you fill up your tank. When I use it, and I have a 302 Windsor engine, I get 130 miles to a quarter tank of gas. Seriously! I couldn't believe it myself, but it's true. Try it.

Hi, I saw the comment about Lucas upper cylinder lubricant when you fill up your tank. I am about to purchase a 1984 also, 45,000 miles. Do you have any more to comment there?

If this '84 needing frame repair is in "better condition body wise" than the '88, that one must have been a real rust bucket.

Nothing really.

General Comments:

The car jumps when you step on the gas.

It can take a sharp turn at unbelievable speeds for such a huge car.

The transmission shifts as smooth as a baby's butt.

The seats are nice and comfortable. This car seats a lot of people.

I put this car on the dyno and it gets 405.2 horsepower at 5800 RPM and 392 pounds per foot of torque at 5000 RPM. I have smoked SUPERCHARGED BRAND NEW MONTE CARLOS with this car. I did this 3 time then I got "Smoked By A Ford Lately" on my visor.

I put a system in it and it sounds great. I've got 2 4" 2 ways in the front, 2 6"x9" 3 ways (4 drivers) in the back, and 1 12" subwoofer in the trunk. This car kicks ass!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Whoa... Cool car dude. Mine is the 87 LX in the reviews, the stoplight sleeper.

Your car has 405 hp when you dynoed it.. and it's a stock 84 LTD LOL.. I don't think so.. sorry, but if you have nothing done to it you're lying!!!

Yeah sure...

I have a '91 Police Pack, 351... it is quite powerful... but no way it's 405hp... plus, what is this throttle body thing?? The 351's had carbs.

12th Feb 2003, 16:23

Whats wrong with you guys up there! he said it got 405hp AFTER he dynoed it!

Well, I have an '84 LTD Crown Victoria. It has a 351/5.8 Liter 4bbl. It was made in Canada, I am pretty sure they did not sell this configuration in the states. I also doubt it has 405 horse, but mated to the slushy 4 speed and with 5000+ pounds, I don't know.

I also have a '91 police pkg. 351 5.8L and I don't think you could get near 400 with an '84 even with a turbo. I put a turbo in mine and I'm getting about 415 Hp. That doesn't mean that you can because '84's aren't as power efficient as a '91 is.

A 69 Roadrunner is not as power efficient as a 91 Crown Victoria. A 69 Roadrunner could easily smoke a Crown Vic.

There is no way that your 351 could be pushing 405 horses stock. my 440 magnum 7.2 liter engine is pushing 380 stock, and I'm pretty damn sure my Dodge Charger would smoke your Crown Vic.

405 HP ON A CROWN VIC? 405hp stock on a Ford Vic... L o L... no such thing.

14th Jan 2009, 22:41

I have a 84 Ltd with two chargers and it still does not have 405hp, it has 380hp.
