Picked up this jewel this am, got it for a bunch of labor.

02 CV P71. 94k miles. posi, power everything.

Was an airport security car for the first year, it had issues. Ford bought it back, and completely revamped the car, local SO bought it with 9k on it from ford, and it was the deputys personal car, CID for a bit, then the domestic violence investigators car.

Car is very clean, bunch of antenna holes (the airport had like 10 damn radios) Full light package (blue lights i'm giving back) but had 2 full front and rear strobe kits, Radio console, spotlight. Has a small skip (one of those ford coil junk) surface rust in the rear, no rot that i can see.

I'm going to use it for a runner for the FD and such, and just driv-a hard!!! lol

Cool, I've bounced around the idea of getting one because I feel bad they don't make them anymore, and they aren't hard to find for cheap right now either. The plastic guides for the timing chains worry me however.

what over what, and do what?

Screw the 03, they were shit, the new alum front member had issues. The 05 + are the best to get, bigger rearend, better under pinning (so the CV guys said)

The auto transmissions, they suck! 03 was the first year for the 4r75w ( i have no idea the proper sequence for those characters BTW I concentrate more on the caprice) but the one in the cougar is the 70, it went until 02 and it shifts all over the place, it sucks.

I don't know anything about CVs specifically, only that for some reason they live forever over the other 4.6L powered fords.

o ok, transmissions. I know we wanted to pull the tranny out of an 03 (i have one in the back yard for parts) to put in the FD's 05 and it doesnt' fit, the whole working mechanism is different. That was a pita i can tell ya, the tranny might be the same, but the whole computer control isn't. Ended up having it rebuilt for $1200 and it still doesn't go right.

No matter what those trannys suck, sometimes they can get right, but rarely stay that way. The best solution is T56 Laughing

It is strange though that the 03 wouldn't fit in an 05, maybe they had a whole redesign, they sure as shit should have.

Either way 4.6 civi motors are fun in cars, so even if thats for the FD have fun driving it there! Twisted Evil

x2! I looked at one in 2008, but it was tired. Also came close to getting a 2001 Grand Marquis LSE, but in the 20 minutes between telling the dealer on the phone "I'm buying that car; I'll be right over" and getting to the dealership, he sold it :mad:

When my 2004 Grand Marquis dies, I want to get a Marauder and swap the body panels and interior onto it.

I rock the 95 Town Car as a daily driver. It's the most reliable car I have ever owned. It's also one of the least expensive cars I have ever owned. I just took it in for inspection and it only cost me the cost of the inspection.
Easy to fix and utterly reliable. I have left it for a month at a time. Walk up put the key in starts right up every time. I have driven this car to Florida and back. You can go for hours and not be tired.
It's the car I take to the Airport and park in the garage when I am sent out of town.
It's not quick. But it's comfortable and reliable.


Pic is from March First of this year.

222k miles and just some minor surface rust. Original Motor and Transmission. Just a good American built daily driver.

And yes the Transmission can be weird. It has a mind of it's own. But every one of these cars I have driven have transmissions that act this way.
Mustang wheels...Yeah they can be made to fit.
Perhaps when the transmission finally goes it will be time for a Hot Rod Lincoln.... Twisted Evil

That hot rod part is exactly what I am thinking for the cougar!

Though I may decide it could be time for an LS1/T56 if I get the right price.
