1995 Ford Crown Victoria P71 Police 4.6L Modular V8 from North America
Reliable, Luxurious, and Fast
I blew out a freeze plug at about 176000 and that was an easy fix.
Just recently put in all new brakes and rotors on all four disc brake wheels.
New platinum plugs and wires.
Sure, it had a couple of minor repairs, but it runs unbelievably for the measly $1000 that I paid for it. Rides like a Lincoln and Hauls ass like a Mustang. When I hit the gas it takes off like a rocket or if I feel like a leisurely cruise, she purrs down the road like a kitten. It also turns on a dime. Not to mention the leather seat in back is like a couch, with room in the front as well with all the police gadgets cleared out from the center console. She'll hopefully last me a while with the heavy-duty police package on her.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

We got over 320,000 miles out if ours. Yours will probably be around for a long time.

It is common for a 4.6 engine to run 300,000 miles. I just saw a 1999 Town Car on ebay with 551,000 miles. Good Luck.

Leather seat in back?
Hardly. Try vinyl... much easier to clean the various, uh, fluids that the occupants of police car back seats may leave behind...
