if you are wanting to do some body work and then go fool some ppl into thinking you are a cop, then YES! Otherwise, NO WAY. But then again, $700 for a running vehicle isnt too bad.

I'm not sure what exactly the modifications are, but I know they are fast, not sure if because of engine or different suspension, but I think you should offer $500, Try to find out the upgrades.

The only differences with the Interceptors are high-temp radiator hoses, and a heavy duty radiator. THere is nothing different with the motor.

BAD IDEA

I DO THIS FOR A LIVING GUYS AND THESE CARS ARE SO SLOW THAT ITS NOT EVEN FUNNY. I HAVE A 97 STOCK GT THAT WILL PUT THEM TO SHAME. I ALSO HAVE A 99 COBRA AND LETS JUST SAY THAT CROWN VICS DONT PUT OUT THE HP YOU ARE LOOKING FOR AND DONT HAVE THE LOOKS EITHER. IF YOU ARE GOING TO BUY IT I WOLD DO IT FOR PARTING OUT PURPOSES. YOU COULD GET MORE THAN $700.

BY THE WAY: I WAS OUT RAN BY A V-6 CAMARO IN A MARKED CROWN VIC

Its just another junky non pi headed mod motor. Those motors are garbage and not good for anything. Not worth the money.

The Police packages do have the aluminum heads that can be ported and polished. Port and Polish the heads and swap the cams with whats in your mustang now and you will get some power increase. but its now worth 700. I got a full upper setup (Throttle body, plumen, intake, and heads all aluminum for 119. so it was worth it to me. Plus I have a set of PI cams going into the heads also so I'll see a good HP increase. it your going to spend 700 then get the PI swap.
