Description
2001 P71. Bought it in Birmingham, AL. It has a few problems and is in need of a paint job but it is still fun to drive. It had steel wheels when I bought it. Like the new one better.

Thanks for the compliments about the car. I figured everyone here would like it since it IS a Crown Victoria!

The Title says Gold. I like it but it looks too much like the local Sheriff color.

The picture doesnt show much of a similarity but in person it is close

They came from Fleetpride. They are 6x1 Watt LED. Not very bright but they do not take much power.

What size tires are those? Is it sitting at factory height? Just asking because the wheel wells look filled out nicely.

The tires are 235/55-17 so they are just a little taller than factory tires. Other than that the ride height is factory.

would you be able to take a pic at night of just your LEDs on? so i can see how well it lights up the road, etc.

Thanks

They are getting bad. I will probably just grab some new assemblies from the Crown Vic yard up the street

I think I can do that. I can tell you that they are not very good at lighting things up. They were given to me for doing some computer work.

I had LEDs behind the grill, but police in the area don't take them very well so away they went.
