The wider custom wheel/tire package gives the car a confident stance and great handling. Combined with its legendary drive train, you get a sporty big-car feel that is FUN TO DRIVE!​

INTERIOR

Excellent, 9 of 10. Seats show little wear and carpet appears almost new. The door panels and headliner are pristine. Lighter and ash trays are unused. Everything works, all gauges, switches, courtesy and signal lights, vanity mirrors, window/seat motors, dash controls, AM-FM-Cassette stereo, climate control, clock, tilt, cruise. PB, PS, PW, PDL, power front seats, power mirrors, and power trunk release.

EXTERIOR

Excellent condition, 9 of 10, must see in person to appreciate. Not even a scuff on the bumpers. Body panels and gaps are clean and straight. Original silver metallic paint is still glossy with pin striping intact. Bumper chrome trim is perfect. Headlamps are new and crystal clear. Windshield and all window glass and weather stripping are excellent. The undercarriage is very clean. Car has obviously been garaged the majority of its life. Hard to believe its 27 years old.

INVESTMENT

Those of you who have done business with me know that I focus on curating extremely clean, original, low mileage cars with excellent ownership history. This showroom condition Crown Vic is another example of the same strategy I have stuck to for 15 years with over 80 cars. As a result, I have repeat buyers all over the world. In my opinion the late 90’s Crown Vics are sleepers that will continue rising in value as investors move in. Now’s the time.
