Here’s Why People Buy Used Police Cars, Ford Crown Vic


welcome to wacky Wednesday’s, where
everyone has a chance to show off their car mods, and here’s this week’s winner, howdy folks this is my P 71 ford crown vic
this used to be a police car, drive this thing everyday about 70 miles a day,
originally belong to my grandpa after they bought it from the police auction, when
I got it the paint was flaking off had old steel wheels, the car did not look this
good at all, I went down to my local Walmart and bought about 15 cans of
paint and during Spring Break about few and a half ago, I painted this thing,
she’s all spray paint on this car on top I couldn’t reach it too good because I’m
kind of short, I had a guy locally put me a giant American flag and in
the middle we done in red blue and green in honor og those who keep our
country safe, the other thing I’ve done is in the front g-max tires in
the back 18 by 9 gernal gmax tire these pretty meaty looking, one part you always need,
performance makes it really good control arms helps keep the car from spinning
and wheel hop, wheel hop is horrible in the factory control arms, I’ll show you the inside, that sticker there is from the unit number on this door panel you can see I got a little bit of latex paint on there don’t mind, that but the police model and on all crown vic I
assume have the seat can close up here on the door panel, because if I’m sitting
down in this seat and I’m wearing full body armor, big gun, so it’s gonna be hard to
reach down there to adjust the seat, so they put them right here, just like a
Mercedes, this one also has power door locks, power windows, power mirrors, on inside aftermarket console as the police models did not have a center
console because this area would have been police center console, so these civilian
ones have like a bench seat into the drivers seat you see the dash, that’s
relatively simple but tell you everything you need,
fuel, speed, and one thing to note is it goes to 140 unlike a civilian
car which only goes to 120 and these lights are on because the car is
on but the engine is not running, over here is one of
the biggest things I’ve changed the radio I’ve had it for like almost two years,
works it’s great, you can go to Spotify and Google Chrome, YouTube, if you want to you can play Angry Birds on it, everything you can do with a tablet, coming back over here you and
see that it is column shift automatic you do have the option to manually shift
down to all 4 gears and the transmission has been rebuilt with her 650 horsepower
to match the wheel build kit and torque converter, one thing I love about this
car is everything is so easy to use so easy to find, it’s all just hard
plastic though only, things that’s kind of soft touch this right here, it has a little bit of a
soft touch to it, moving back over here and see that nice sweeping launch even
though this interior is kind of basic I think it has a decent design
to it, tons of leg room, right here we have the AC, are again easy to
use got fan speed, temperature, and where you want it, no fancy gizmos one thing you will
notice is right here it says release trunk, so the civilian crown vics would have had
a little clock right there at told you the time and all that, these there again
being centered around the police officer you have the trunk button right there, so
the advantage of that is so if there is a police officer sitting here, he can
reach the button and pop open the trunk which we’ll go and look at, one other thing I will you talk about this vehicle, now this trunk is massive, as you can see in here, there’s my book bag that I used for college, full-size
spare tire, bike rack, toolkit air compression, over here we got the jack, right here is a 1000 watt power inverter got two coil vent pioneer subs, one
thing you will notice is there is a fuel pump shutoff switch, in case of a fire
you just hit that button and it puts off the fuel, I said this car originally belonged to my grandpa so one of the things I kind of do is I kind of, he
always wanted to do stuff to it but he didn’t have the time, so there he is
there, I kind of just keeping him there just remind me, I like to think of him
now and then, then on the other end of it we have back, you got the back seat
so this one we went through and we put power windows back here, power door locks,
new back seat and it’s really nice you can see it this is really comfy, like a
couch back here, one other thing you can see back here, is there’s the headliner and
right here you see where it was cut for cage, one other thing on the headliner
would be this thing right here this is what they call the ticket light, it’s bright as all
get-out you can actually buy at Home Depot, but it’s standard with equipment on
all police cars, go down here and pop open the hood, so right here on this box is
what they call the cop chip, P71’s only I’m just
kidding nothing’s in that box, but what you will have in this very civilian
model is a different tune a big air box this is the same air box found on the
Mercury Marauder, which is totally different animal, you got a battery
the size of a small Honda motor, this thing is genuinely massive, cost about
$300 so other than that you’ve got a 4.6 liter two valve v8 these can get around 270
horsepower more or less depends on who you ask but you got modern features
without modern hassle, so everything is real easy to work on,
alternators right there, belts real easy to get to, one thing I like about this one being a 2004, she’ll have mechanical cable, one other thing about is they have upgraded brakes which I did have paint red,
so we’re going back to the back underneath the car a little bit,
underneath the car you can see the 2 Cherry Bomb glass packs, feeding into an
offload x-pipe and you can’t see them but I have
flowmaster high flow catalytic converters and all flows back 3 inch tubing to these four inch by 22,,so that’s my P 71 Ford Crown Vic, you want
