Here's a couple pics of my brothers Crown Vic and Sedan delivery. Both have gone through several resto/rebuilds (the Sedan Delivery had its first rust repair done by my Dad in the early 60's - very rust prone..). The Crown once had an SCJ 429, Toploader 4speed and 4.11 9" and ran at the drags but he went Grandpa on me and put it back to stock with a 312 auto. The Delivery now runs an injected 302 & C4 auto.

ZZ, that Crown is wild. I really like the sedan delivery...have always thought they'd make a cool rod.

It's called 'Mandarin Orange', he had it painted in the late 70's and it still looks fresh.

I went to a small show about fifty miles away last weekend. The Ford did really well, no issues other than not being able to roll down the driver's window for fear it'll come out of the track. Drove it a hundred miles or so yesterday in constant rain...sure am glad I spent the money on the electric wiper conversion! The delay feature is awesome to have in an old car, too. It's something I take for granted in the newer stuff.
