1985 Ford Crown Victoria base

1985 Ford crown Wagon is very nice driving car. I use it for local events. I drove it from South Carolina to Ohio in hot summer with a/c on with no issues. It always starts and runs great. it uses some oil between changes (3,000miles LOF) but not always. it does sit a lot now. This is reason I am selling it. Too may cars to keep up with and we are traveling more. I worked on these cars since they were new at the dealer and they had no problems. They have never been issues with the drive trains in these car unless they were abused. This car was bought in 1990 after I believe it was a fleet car use. It had 60,300 miles and was purchased at Mc Cafferty Ford in Langhorne PA. by second owner. Most cars optioned like this were used for fleet. I bought this car in 2015 from the second owners daughter who had driven it for several years after her father passed away. I have a lot of records from second owner of this car.
It has Manual A/C and heat, stereo radio, cruise control, tinted glass all around. it is not a high option car which leads me to again think it was fleet order. All windows, dual action tail gate, manual seats work. tailgate window is electric but all others are manual. inside of car is all original upholstery and is like new. Very slight wear on driver seat area.(wrinkle) in fabric, but remaining seat areas, headliner, door panels, carpet are nice. I have keep it in garage since I owned it. It has light surface rust on floor pans but NO HOLES or soft spots anywhere. inner rear fender areas in rear are not rusted. Frame is perfect and rings when it is hit (meaning there is no rust or debris inside.) I don't see any signs of any accident damage. I did repaint the car with PPG base clear factory Wimbledon white and added the dark color charcoal (Lincoln color) on bottom of car to highlight it a little. It has not been wet sanded or buffed. I also added gauges. I did make sure any weak areas (for break down) were repaired, such as a new timing chain. I suspected it had original plastic timing gear on camshaft in it, which it did. No plastic had come off cam gear, so I know there is no debris that got into oil pick up screen. oil pressure is 20 PSI in 100 deg weather hot idle, a/c on. I did a lot of preventive repairs. I am a mechanic and don't like to fix cars when I travel. Here is the list of what I have done to it.
Double roller Cloyes timing chain setwater pump, coolant and rad cap, (water pump replace when timing chain was done.)heater corevalve cover gasketstune up with Motorcraft Plugs, wires, cap, rotor and fuel filternew beltspower steering pumpfront calipers with steel pistons (police option) and pads. rear brakes good.alternator and voltage regulator are newThrottle body reseal with TP sensornew tires rear, will need front tires (age)Trans service, filter and all fluid is Mercone 5 now, brass TV grommet replacementcat back daul exhaustThe front end of this car is tight and alignment is good. trans shifting is is a joy to drive on trips.the CFI 302 motors (80-85) where not considered fast. they move the car good. fuel injection was change to SFI 302 (86-90). camshafts are better in later SFI cars for added power. the 302 motors are known to have piston noise concerns in years 80-89. this has some piston noise at idle. This is a great car and will not disappoint. It's a get in and drive to cruise night car in comfort and room.
