I have a dark blue crown victoria (2000), I'm not sure what kind of crown victoria I have. How do I know if its an police interceptor or just a basic crown victoria?
Police interceptors aren't required to have emission controls. Look for catalytic converters. They're also strictly for police work and have no carpet or upholstery in the rear seating area. They have a 100 amp alternator and a heavy duty radiator. They also are usually worn out with extremely high mileage.
Vehicle specifications are either on the door, in the driver's manual or under the hood on or near the radiator. Check the tail lights or search online with your Vin number it will tell you what year and make of vehicle.
If got 140 on the dashboard its a police car If it have 120 on the dashboard it's a basic crown Victoria been driving them to long
I know this is an old question but is also a very common question so I will answer it even though it's old. All Police Interceptors after 1993 have the digits of "P71" in the VIN (vehicle Identification Number) code located on the drivers door jam and also on 4 other places on the car and frame. All Ford Police Interceptors from 1981 thru 1993 have "P72" in their VIN code.Also ALL years of P.I. (police interceptor) vehicles will have a "certified calibrated" identified 140 mph speedometer and factory dual exhaust. Hope this helps, Kenny/MrBlueOval
