1994 Ford Crown Victoria P71 Police Interceptor 4.6 L V8 from North America
High performance with room and luxury
I needed to replace the rear bearings at 118,000.
State Patrol replaced the brakes before they sold it.
This car is performance. Very good handling for a big car, and good power. The 3:27 gears are very high, so the car is top end. The state trooper cars go 150 mph, mine won't unless I put the high pro chip back in that takes of the governor. I may be dropping 3:73 gears into the rear end and I should be down to under 15 sec. on the quarter mile with that. I've won races against Intrepids, Camaros, Luminas, Berettas, and stupid modified imports. I've lost to a S-10 with a 400, and 2 corvettes (I just raced them for fun).
This car is very reliable, gets 20 mpg. Even in Wisconsin, it's good in the snow. It weighs 4,000 pounds so it's able to get the rear wheels in contact with the pavement, and if you start to slide, it's easy to recover.
The locker is awesome for getting off the line on pavement, or traction in snow. I'd recommend a Police Interceptor Crown Victoria to anyone, normal Crown Vic's are good too, but they don't have the same performance. My friend's folks '92 Crown Vic just died at 200,000 miles.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

So you think the stock police interceptor with a gear change of 373s will drop you into the 14s.. maybe low 15s or mid 15s, that's about it..

Your old police car will never see 15's. Even with 3.73 gears it will likely only see mid to low 16's. Your car doesn't even have PI heads and it certainly won't reach 150 MPH. You wish you had a car that did that. Also, I wouldn't beleive that your old PD car would beat a Camaro, maybe a V6 Camaro, but still...
