    Agreed, that police cluster is cool. I wonder how many are left in this world?

    Every time I see one, I regret not special ordering a police package on my 82 Mercury 2 door.

    Poking around here, I think Grand Marquis GT has one in his '83 coupe, there was a bidding process/sale between FatNasty and MrMarquis (correct me if I'm wrong) for one, and there's mine that I purchased along with an 85 MPH cluster from a member here.

    There's also been maybe three or four police Marquis posted/mentioned, but none of them were in running shape. There's some old threads regarding a guy selling a 1980 and a 1981 from another site. There was an eBay listing for one that was in pretty poor shape. Someone mentioned one in a junkyard years ago, and that's about it.

    I've seen photos of Kansas and Missouri State Police using them. I also have a photo of Toronto Police using one.



    Given such a short model run, and likely most agencies ordering LTD, I'm sure these were a passing oddity and not much credence was given to preserving any at the time. Now what is obviously a very rare bird, I've never seen one in person, running or not.

    That would have certainly been a 1 of 1 car. Funny how the ordering options could be done then.

    Thank you for the link sly, but all I see is the photo of K-Wolf's car at the top and then the video of the exhaust job. No other links, what am I missing?

    The image you can't see is on Imageshack. The URL is https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/1...922/JAtZl9.jpg

    The other image, of a yellow Mercury cop car, is also on Imageshack at https://imagizer.imageshack.com/img922/7856/5y5T8P.jpg

    Are you maybe browsing from somewhere that is blocking Imageshack?

    Strange it would be blocking that image but not the earlier posts unless something that’s been going on with the weird double posts is causing it.

    I primarily do all my image hosting with them.

    Yep, that confirms it, my work browser blocks imageshack. I tried the direct links you provided and got slapped by their splintered ruler.

    Groovy! Thanks for attaching that, sly. Those are pretty neat, I've definitely never seen one, nor did I know they existed.

    Yeah, it is strange that some photos populate, but the majority do not. When I browse your thread or others like your D150 thread to see photos, I'm the odd one out. I finally became the squeaky wheel, thanks fellas for applying some grease.
