1989 Ford Crown Vic
5.8ltr v8
66g miles
power steering and power brakes
running condition

i will not lie after talking to someone else I am soooooooo tempted to bid on a backhoe. :lol2:

i would post the entire auction listing because they have some nice s10 pickups with low miles but,
i do not know how to post pdf files to read without it being an attachment.

"power brakes" that's a plus... You'd be stopping Fred Flintstone style otherwise...

Is the back hoe so you can bury the Vic?

:lol2: it will be tight but if i win it i'm not keeping i'm going to see if i can clean it up and flip it and make some money.

the taurus has a 3.0 my old explorer 3.0.

The 351 Crown Vic is a nice piece.. They do pretty well on the drag strips. Pics are a must if you get it. It must have been a police car at one time.

well a 5.0 compaired to a 5.8 in an f150 there is a big difference the 5.8 has a ton more power

well from what i could find the 351 in 89 put out 210 hp and 310 ft-lbs torque
and the 4.6 in 03 put out 239hp and 282 ft-lbs of torque
not possitive on how accurate that is but i am sure it is close
