Vic Police is a special SHRINE
to the Crown Vic Police Interceptor. This is THE car we all want: heavy
duty suspension, bigger rims/tires, dual exhaust, better brakes (read:
metal caliper pistons), oil & tranny coolers & interior perks
(the 140 speedo is nice!). NEW PI links:

Check out Derek's UK based American Emergency Vehicle club!! Amazing
PIs in Scotland & i guess all over the UK: "My name's Derek
Page and I run an emergency vehicle club in the UK that runs American
police vehicles (yeah in the UK!!!) Please find enclosed a picture
of our 1995 Ford Crown Vic Interceptor from the Collin County Sheriff's
Dept. McKinney, Texas. It's been shipped over here by us and is in
a semi-official capacity as we have friends in the department that
kitted us out in uniforms etc. when we visited. I would really appreciate
it if you could put a link to our website and that you'll take a trip
yourself and let me know what you think. The site is at www.911evac.freeserve.co.uk
By the way, the picture shows the vision bar with 7 clear pods, the
reason for this was that we were about to head out of our county to
a show in England (we're in Scotland) and we have to remove the red
and blues. Where we live the Police are great, they let us drive around
with the red and blue pods on and have no problem. The car is our
second as I also have a 1978 NYPD Impala, which is a bit rough but
still scares the life out of people in their small euro-boxes!

The following is excerpted from FPS-12011-93, "Severe
Duty Service Recommendations for Crown Victoria Police/Taxi/Fleet and Mustang
Special Service Vehicles", dated July 1992
These vehicles are manufactured with heavy-duty parts that are
designed specifically for the varying demands and uniqie requirements under
which police and taxi automobiles and others in heavy-duty daily service are
operated. Such options are incorporated during the vehicle assembly. Components
that are part of the option packages are listed below and on the following pages
with a brief outline of their major features and their contribution to overall
vehicle performance, handing and performance.
TRANSMISSION: Auxillary External Oil Cooler -
ELECTRICAL: 130 ampere Alternator - Police Dual Beam
Map Lamp - Police
FRAME/SUSPENSION: Heavy-duty Frame - Police Heavy-duty Suspension - Police
& extra-heavy, high rate front and rear springs, extra control shock
absorbers, heavy-duty front and rear stabilizer bars, plus special lower control
arm bushings. COOLERS Power Steering Fluid Cooler - Police Extra Cooling Package
- Police & viscous type fan drive Transmission Fluid Cooler - Police
& Forward mounted air-to-fluid cooler
WHEELS / TIRES / BRAKES: Wheel Rims - Police & heavy-duty Safety
Rim Wheels Tires - Police & tires (including the spare) are speed rated
radials for police use.
Brakes - Police Semi-metallic brake pads are standard
heavy-duty on the front brakes to meet the varying demands of different police
service for fade resaistance and other performance requirements. These linings
meet LASD/LAPD and MSP certification requirements.
INTERIOR: Heavy-duty seats - Police Calibrated
Speedometer - Police More precise read-out of true road speed is achieved by a
calibrated speedometer head. (The speedometer head assembly accuracy is +/- 2
mph over the entire range [at 70 degrees F or 21 degrees C].) The
"certified calibration" applies to the head assembly only and does not
apply to the indicated speed of the system which is affected by variations in
vehicle loading, tire inflation pressures, tire rolling radii and driveline
ratios. Deviations from true road speeds are minimized by this specially adapted
speedometer head which gives both miles-per-hour and kilometer-per-hour
readings. (0-140 mph; 0-220 km/h on Crown Victoria, 0-160 mph; 0-250 km/h on
