2001 Ford Crown Victoria
LX Sedan 4.6L V8
I purchased this 2001 Ford Crown Victoria 05/30/2015 for under $3k. Its history is documented extensively by the (one) prior owner. The car has 172,856 miles, but has been kept very clean.
- The vehicle was initially purchased in Arizona. The color is Arizona Beige.
- The original (only other) owner was born in 1917.
- A 1991 (first-year/first-gen) Ford Crown Victoria was traded to purchase this one.
- This vehicle was purchased 12/17/00.
- Original owners were Alfred and Eleanor.
Plans are for this to be a secondary (emergency) family-car if the Honda Odyssey is ever in the shop, but generally just to serve me on my daily 4-mile round-trip commute.
The original Ford window-sticker estimates 18city/25highway. Since the majority of my driving will be city (very short commute) I expect to net much less.

Old looked to be OEM - very common for these to crack at less than ~60k miles due to the plastic. This one cracked right at the thermostat housing - pictures from just post-sale show no crack so it developed recently. New part has aluminum near that point.
