1999 Ford Crown Victoria Description

This is the only V10 Crown Victoria of its kind.
-Find articles about this car onlineif you google "V10 crown vic" byCar & Driver, Hotrod, and Jalopnik articles (2012 article for $15,000 and 2013 article for$8,500).
-Watchvideos of the car running on Youtube by searching for the same thing. (I tried listing them here but for some reason eBay doesn't let me post it in the listing.)
After buying this car a few years back in MD while I was still in VA, I did some serious digging to try to find more about this car. I was able to get in touch with some folks in Detroit, where I believe the original swap was done. They had the top Ford driveability expert at the time help tune it for street manners. The torque and transmission with shift kit will knock you back in your seat if you jam your foot down. 10-cylinder engine and transmission came from a Ford F350 truck, so in a lighter car, means more power to weight ratio, aka more fun!
The Car & Driver article was accurate, and the the car used to run on propane/CNG, It was converted back to gasoline in the hands of Scott Alder Motorsports as the later articles will mention. I still have all the fuel delivery equipment including the propane tank that fits in the trunk ($1700+). If you have the know-how, you could convert this back to CNG if desired. CNG offers advantages of being cheaper than gasoline and decreased combustibility. (One of the selling points as a prototype was that if a stray bullet were to hit the propane tank, it would not blow up for police use.)
You would not be able to replicate this car for the reserve price, considering you would have to have expert technicians knowledgable about the CANBUS interface to allow the PCM to interface with the bigger motor. Additionally, the tunnel had to be clearanced to fit the larger transmission. The digital dash is also no longer available.
There are a lot of neat features, such as lumbar support in the seats you can pump up for both driver and passenger. Makes it extremely comfortable. The wide large seats and minimal tunnel make it feel like you are riding in a limo. If you've never driven a Crown Vic, they have great visibility and handle great. Unique to this car, are side mirrors with turn signals which are both cool and serve a function safety-wise.
When I bought it, there was no speedometer, so I had a GPS speedometer installed, and the odometer is the best estimate for the body as far as the information I could find. There is much less mileage on the engine/transmission/drivetrain. There was also no gear shift indicator when I bought it, and I had one installed at a dealership when I was in VA.
Some other details are that the car also has a stainless oil filter that is reusable made by Purolator. The engine is the Ford modular 6.8L and uses the same alternator from the 4.6L. The pictures show dark-tinted headlights and tail lights, which have been taken off and replaced with non-tinted ones. I still have the old ones.
There are a LOT of extra parts included with the sale, such as a 5th wheel and additional thicker swaybars. All of it goes with the car. Let me know if there are any questions.
