    Default Barn Find Survivor Crown Victoria LTD 2D with 7728 miles

    A wee bit (a lot) optimistic.

    For the starting price I would have figured seller would at least provide better pictures. This aint gonna sell.

    I like this better than the other wagon you posted and that’s saying a lot! I guess everyone in the US is flush with $600 so the price of everything goes up.

    I bet that would hit 5 figures on BAT with a great description and tons of pics. Looks like the real deal to me.

    24K ... no.

    I was thinking it would get some better exposure there too..plus we would get to read the commentary. I like reading through the comments on those auctions.

    I do think the two doors are hard to come by (in my searches of junkyards through the years wagons are way more plentiful) but I dont think they are 24k price yet, if ever.

    It looks like a nice very boring cheepie base model car. Way cleaner than my car though.

    I just was gonna post that a car like that belongs on BaT. I could potentially see it hitting 5 figures there, but is there really much demand for a tudor? Wagon's seem to have gained a cult following in the recent years, but not sure on the tudor's, they've always been an oddity to me.

    I just laugh at the 24k, why not 23 or 25 -- so arbitrary. So nice to see a 2 door in this condition tho, but the red does not do anything for me in the 2 door. As was said, boring for the money asking.

    She ain't exactly base as it's got rub strips, rear defrost, A/C, cruise, tilt and all that. Interior is base though. Big bummer on the blah gray interior, needs to be saddle or porno red. Big fan of two doors but yeah, price is far too lofty on that rig.

    I like the grey interior, but maybe I am biased as my 89 MGM was the same color combo. Coincidentally that was also the brochure color combo.

    There is a bid on the car! Wonder if it is real?

    Much to my amazement (and if I was selling this car I would have laughed to the bank) it did not sell as the $16,800 it reached. Now it is relisted and the crazy seller upped the start bid price to 17k. NUTS But did lower the BIN price from 24k to 20k. I still cannot believe I am typing these numbers. Hell id sell my car for 15k!

    Wow, what a greedy little prick. I'd be happy if my Town Car sold for $6,800.

    I really have to agree with this. Definitely a clean car, but the colors are just kinda ... bleh... Maybe if it was detailed better, or the lighting was better, or it was a more satisfying color combo...

    Interesting that it sold new here in CT. Seller should have unloaded at 16.8k. Will take a really sentimental buyer to beat that number.

    I think my car new was either 15k or 17k. That price of 16.8K was easily more than it was new. Insane.

    A 5.0 Mustang LX Coupe with these miles would easily sell for twice the window sticker price. MSRP is not necessarily a good metric to go by on FMV.

    The Panther coupes are unusual, but they do not really carry any sort of a legacy.

    No tripminder, was that a option?

    Fuel gauge not working, just a wire from fuel pump not hooked up....... yea, sure it is, thats all. Im chasing that gremlin currently.

    This one doesnt say it but its along the lines of ac just needs a recharged.

    Yes tripminder is an option.

    Got analogue clock, digital clock and tripminder equipped clock. Curious when the analogue clock was phased out. I think it looked fantastic and would be running one if my car was not equipped with tripminder.
