    Overpriced, but nice looking.

    Can't figure out why the radio antenna is on the rear quarter panel however. I looked up '85 model LTD CVs and they're all passenger fender mounted.

    Maybe kept in a climate controlled storage place that is why the price is so high.

    That's some serious carnage. Gotta wonder what they hit/what hit them and how fast.

    Looks like a single vehicle vs stationary object at high speed. One fatal for sure (passenger) Driver may have got ejected out of drivers window. as no distortion to steering wheel or seat. Seat belt does not look to have been used. Notice yellow"fatality blanket" tossed in back floor area. Just toss that car into the crusher, nothing to salvage just the smell of death.

    Repost from Giraffe but I wanted to make sure Vic sees this:

    Ad says it has a clean title. Owner has listed it as a parts car because of a crack in the transmission case.

    https://grandrapids.craigslist.org/c...716048653.html

    From the ad:
    "Awesome car with alot of lifetime warranty parts. Engine is strong and good running with 180,000 miles, trans is cracked at rear seal, other than that it's driveable,if it was not for the trans it would be indeed a very dependable car...302....5.0 engine"

    The '85 CV looks nice. Someone has painted many of the underside bits including the front control arms, axle and diff cover (if that means anything one way or another).

    That TC really got messed up.


    Edit:
    Derek, see my reply in his thread. lol

    I didn’t realize slapping a Mercury emblem on the trunk makes a Crown Victoria a Grand Marquis when everything else is still clearly Crown Victoria dress.

    Also, I didn’t realize “clean” means faded paint, dirty upholstery, trim missing, and rust coming in on the fenders. Beater with a heater? Yes. Clean? No.

    Ouch. I agree with mainemantom... something large that didn’t move much/any when hit it. At least they had blue comfy seats for their last ride.

    It's pronounced Grand Markeese... and that is pretty clean for Detroit.

    To those of us not in Detroit it's pronounced properly as Grand Marquis and that's definitely a beater Crown Vic.

    That one has been for sale for a while. Possibly as long as 2 years. There's snow in the background. Also, I think they already have come down on the price.

    Lol, Eagle eye, bro.
    There nothing like seeing it in person....as in..crawling around with a Mag Light/ ratfuck. Wouldn't mind a 30 min drive to look.

    This one a relic of CL too?

    Yeah, no idea why it hasn't sold. I'm kind of curious to know what it looks like in person. It might just be the dented passenger side quarter panel keeping people away.

    I’m really not a fan of the “woodrose” color on the 90/91s. It was pretty popular, so someone liked it

    Marauder exhaust system though so like +1000hp, and i mean hit-points, because only nerds would think that's awesome. Sounds "mean". Or like a shitty stock 2v but noisier. Really wish i'd taken video of my '98, it sounded impressive.
