2005 CVPI SAP, 126,000, Midnight Grey with Dark Charcoal interior, split bench cloth seats, January 2005.

She was a Commander's car for the Sacramento County Sheriff's Office, retired in 2013 and ended up in the hands of a retired Orange County Sheriff's Deputy who I purchased the car from in 2015 at 103k miles. My first and only car and she doesn't skip a beat. I hand wash weekly and hand wax every other month.

On Aug 14th I found an ebay listing for the full GCC Special Edition kit... it arrived on the 19th and I've installed the trunk and bumper trims. Still deciding on what to do with the rest...

-Junkyard restored 03-11 CV LX Sport rims with OEM new centercaps and lugs.
-New OEM headlights from ADTR and OEM new sidemarkers.
-ADTR stickers for 10hp
-Repainted in 2018
-New OEM windshield
-Replaced dashtrim with woodgrain
-Ford Explorer V8 badges
-Rear sequential turn signals
-Only OEM fluids and parts
-UHaul transmission pan
-2008 GCC Special Edition trim conversion (NOS OEM)

Next up is a Marty tune and a Marauder/GCC spoiler.

Here's a pre restoration pic.

With all the unobtanium GCC parts on there, it’s far from simple. Awesome car, Lundy.
