There have been a lot of talk regarding the compatibility of doors, bumper covers, grilles etc. among Crown Victoria, Grand Marquis and Marauder models so I've decided to put together this little page to hopefully clear up some of the questions and confusion. Front Body Parts Crown Victoria
1998-2011 Grand Marquis
2006-2011 Marauder Front Doors
Front doors from 1992-2011 Crown Victoria, Grand Marquis and Marauder models look identical from the outside and will interchange between models in that year range. However, the mounts may be different as well as any hardware inside the door such as door locks, window regulators and any wiring. Exterior trim may also be different.Fenders
All 1992-2011 Crown Victorias, Marauders and 2003-2011 Grand Marquis use identical fenders. 1992-1994 Crown Vics have antennas installed on passenger side fenders. Hood hinge mounting locations may be different.
All 1992-2002 Grand Marquis models use identical fenders. 1992-1994 Grand Marquis have antennas installed on passenger side fenders. Hood hinge mounting locations may be different. Front Bumper Covers
1992-1997 Crown Victorias share front bumper covers.
1998-2011 Crown Victorias share front bumper covers. The only difference among the years were bumper strip colors or lack thereof.
1992-1994 Grand Marquis share front bumper covers.
1995-1997 Grand Marquis share front bumper covers.
1998-2002 Grand Marquis share front bumper covers.
2003-2005 Grand Marquis share front bumper covers.
2006-2011 Grand Marquis share front bumper covers. Some models come equipped with driving lights.
Marauders have unique bumper covers and include driving lights.
With that said, the interchange between years and models varies. It depends if you are willing to swap other parts to make the bumper covers work. For example, you cannot put a 1995-1997 Grand Marquis bumper cover on a 1992 Grand Marquis but if you change header panel, headlights and grille, you can. Same goes for Crown Vics. Grilles
1992 Crown Victorias do not have grilles. The header panel is a single piece and has only a Ford logo in the middle.
1993-1997 Crown Vic grilles are fully interchangeable.
1993-1994 Crown Victorias share grilles.
1995-1997 Crown Victorias share grilles.
1998-2011 have several grilles which changed ever the years and look different depending if it's a police model or not. Overall the grilles can be interchanged between the years without any problems. There are two styles of grilles which were used in North America. They are slotted and honeycomb. Slotted grilles came in chrome or black and honeycombs were all black. Chrome came on civilian models and black on police and fleet. The only exceptions were Crown Vic Sport which had body colored grilles in some years of production. You could also get a police model with chrome grille in Street Appearance Package.
There was also a Special Edition model made in 2008 for export to the Middle East which came equipped with a Fusion style 3 bar grille. The grille was made by an outside company though is available to buy from a Ford dealer for a hefty sum of money.
1992-1994 Grand Marquis share grilles.
1995-1997 Grand Marquis share grilles.
1998-2002 Grand Marquis share grilles.
2003-2005 Grand Marquis and Marauders share grilles. Marauder grilles were body colored and had unique emblems.
2006-2011 Grand Marquis share grilles.
With that said, the interchange between years and models varies. It depends if you are willing to swap other parts to make the grilles work.
Often people want to install a Marauder grille on a 98'-11' Crown Vic or Crown Vic grille on a 98'-11' Grand Marquis. Be prepared to replace some parts.
To get a Marauder Grille on your Crown Vic, you will need a new header panel, headlights, bumper cover and of course the grille. Those are required just to make it fit but not necessarily look good.
To get a Crown Vic grille on a Grand Marquis you will need pretty much same parts as listed above. Fenders and corner lights as well if you are doing it to a 98'-02' Grand Marquis.
Several people have successfully swapped 03'-05' GMQ or Marauder grille on their 98'-02' Grand Marquis. However, there is about a 1" gap between hood and the grille when installed.Hoods
1992-1997 Crown Victoria and Grand Marquis all have the same hoods.
1998-2011 Crown Victoria, Grand Marquis and Marauder all have the same hoods.
You can not put a 98'+ hood on a 97'- car and expect it to look good unless of course you are willing to swap some other parts as well.Headlights
1992-1997 Crown Victorias share headlights.
1998-2011 Crown Victorias share headlights.
1992-1994 Grand Marquis share headlights.
1995-1997 Grand Marquis share headlights.
1998-2002 Grand Marquis share headlights.
2003-2005 Grand Marquis and Marauder share headlights. Grand Marquis are chrome, Marauders have black inserts.
2006-2011 Grand Marquis share headlights.
The interchange between headlights is pretty limited without replacing other parts. The only direct interchange are Marauder and 03'-05' GMQ headlights.
You can also install 95'-97' GMQ headlights on a 92'-94' GMQ but there will be gaps in the corners of the grille due to obvious size differences.
Often people want to swap Marauder headlights on a Crown Vic. To do this, you will need a Marauder or 03'-05' GMQ header panel, grille, headlights (duh) and bumper cover to make it look good. bumper cover is not necessary but you will have huge gaps under the headlights.
