    That '79 is awesome. I love all the odd things that the first year panthers had. Even the clock looks like it has some weird extra trim on it.

    Even the vents have little chrome accents around them. Definitely makes them pop a bit more.

    What year did they stop using an expansion valve on the A/C system? I noticed that one does not have an accumulator in the normal spot.

    I am sometimes asked if my 88 is a former fire department car since it accidentally got painted scarlet red (long story from 2007). Mine is not, but this one looks legit:

    Of course I find it ironic that the fire department felt the need to order the third row seat and my cars still don’t have them...

    Too bad that FD wagon does not have the police package. Many of the FDs would order the police package especially in the 80s.
    It does have the HD suspension, which is ok. Interesting car. I always wanted a California FD car.

    I guess the seller chickened out and pulled the ad. Cannot find it any longer.

    Nice Lincoln. Wonder if it is a late 81 with the TBI ? My 82 had it which I believe to be the first year of TBI. Yes interesting color.

    Yeah that's a nice Lincoln. Only thing, is it missing one or both of the marker lights? I seem to remember those being really expensive to replace if you can even find them.

    depends on the sale price, but if you can be into an NOS grille for under a C note its a good deal. I've bought things with stupid shipping prices because the total still came out to a number I was OK with.

    I mostly agree. I just think the seller inflated the shipping profile computation or limited the shipping options. BIN price is about $35. Good deal for someone who really needs it.
    It would just sit in my parts inventory.

    its a sneaky trick for people who aren't paying attention. Seen lots of things with shipping thats 2-3x the item price for no good reason.

    Yeah... I once saw a $1 + $60 S&H and have made triple sure to check S&H before checkout.
