    Default 1982 Ford LTD-S 351W Police Car

    Well I'm new to the site so I figured I'd introduce my car. As the thread title says its a 1982 Ford LTD-S Police car with a 351 windsor and all the bells and whistles, if your interested in it I have a car domain page: http://www.cardomain.com/ride/2931560

    I'll post up some pictures later and what not but let me know what you think its in pretty good shape and i'm trying to take really good care of it especially since the LTD-S's are getting pretty rare.

    Nice pics! I hadn't realized the two-headlight model was available in '82.

    PM me when you're ready to ditch those valvecovers; I may have a mailing address for you to send them to.

    Nice car!!! Mine's a police car, too, but it's not in nearly as good of shape as yours is. An S model, too, huh? I don't think we have any of those around here yet. Welcome to GMN! We're glad to have you!

    Thanks! Yeah I'm a senior at Haddonfield Memorial, the car actually beat out all the BMW's Mercedes and all the other cars running against it for best car in the school, It just goes to show you really don't need a new expensive car to have a cool, classy car like ours. I wish I had an autosho class like you 86vickylx, I'd have signed up in a heartbeat.

    There are a couple of guys from Haddonfield in our Autoshop. Do you know a Brian Penacoli? Sorry I can't spell his name. He's a senior and he drives a dark green RX7.

    Looks pretty clean, especially for a police car. You're about 45 minutes north of me. I'm way down here in a little place called "last exit before bridge".

    BTW, I really like the custom radio surround. It's close to the look I want for a project I'm working on. You say the wood is cherry; what stain/varnish did you use?

    oh wow, super base model, no rear defrost. Thats the first one of those climate control head units I've ever seen installed in a car. I've seen one in a box of parts before, but thats it.

    That dash trim looks interesting too. Most of the plastic facing on the dash on these was a crappy looking fake woodgrain, not interior color. I kinda like the interior color better actually. The real wood is a nice touch as well.

    My '87 wagon has no rear defrost. I'll have to get you a pic of its original control unit. :p
