1982 Ford LTD "S" Fleet Model, previous Fire Service vehicle.

Up for sale today I have my 1982 Ford LTD fleet previous fire service vehicle with only 65,000 miles on it. I have been thinning my fleet and am down to my last two cars to sell although I really hate to sell them they need to go. (other is a 66 Mustang)


I was told that this car was placed in service in February 1982 as the City of Madison Fire Department Fire Marshal vehicle (Fire Marshal purchased the vehicle through the Fire Department and received a car allowance) and was in service until late 1990. The Fire Marshal retired in 1990 and drove the vehicle sparingly until he passed away in 1998. Upon his death the widow refused to part with the car due to the memory of her late husband and his career with the Fire Department. The car sat in the widow's garage from 1998 until November of 2015 when the car was removed from the garage due to the widow passing away.

When the car was removed from the garage the carb was cleaned out along with the gas tank and all the fluids were changed out. The car started right up and runs like new. The paint was oxidized badly and a good wax has restored the original paint to a nice gloss.

This is a real decommissioned fire service vehicle, not a clone car, complete with radio delete package and even the clock delete package. This is very basic transportation but just verifies that it is the real deal. The car is exactly the same as it was when it rolled off the assembly line back on January 26, 1982. This car 90% original, even the ignition wires, and I have all the paperwork for it to include the original window sticker.

The radio, light bar etc. is all period correct for this car. The old "lollypop" lights in the grill and on the back deck were still in the vehicle when I purchased it. This is just a fun old car that you don't see any more and it puts a smile on everyone's face!


Mechanically this car is in perfect working order. The car does not have any real options other than the full size spare tire, right hand side remote mirror and very rare to see on a fleet model vent windows. The car also has factory tinted glass which was an option back in the day. The car starts right up every time and drives down the road as straight as an arrow. All the windows roll up and down and all the lights work on the car. The heat blows hot and again it does not have A/C, has the radio delete and clock delete also. I don't think I have ever seen a LTD or Crown Victoria of this generation without a radio and clock in it. I just put a new battery in it since the old one was becoming weak.

When you look under the hood there is a bunch of room without the A/C components in there. The 302 5.0 V8 runs flawless and it appears to be all original. The original ignition cables are still on the car and since it runs so nice I wanted to keep it original and not replace them. The car does have the automatic overdrive transmission that goes through the gears well and the car is good on fuel also with the overdrive.

The interior of the car is like new, the seats are in great shape and all the vinyl door coverings etc. are great. The car was always garage kept and no signs of sun fading are apparent on the interior of the car.

The exterior of the car still wears its original single stage paint. The car looks like the left rear quarter panel was painted some time ago but the rest of it looks like it's all original. The factory grease marker letters and numbers are still under the hood and again the paint does shine up beautiful. The car does have a couple minor scratches, some environmental and maybe a ding or two but it's in amazing condition for being original. The white on the car in vinyl and the decals are also all vinyl. The trunk of the car is beautiful and even the cardboard on the sides of the trunk are in great condition, usually they are missing or totally destroyed. The chrome is amazing except for the rear bumper. The rear bumper is rusted on the bottom and that is why the black rub strip is on the bottom of it.

The emergency equipment is original to the car. The Federal Signal Street Hawk lightbar was in the trunk when I purchased the car so I purchased the brackets and installed it once again. All the lights and rotators work on the bar. The power supply runs down the passenger side b pillar under the trim so no holes are in the roof or trunk (antenna is lip mounted). The siren is a newer one but the radio in the car was also in the trunk when I purchased the car.

If you are looking for an amazing one of a kind car that will have everyone waiving and taking pictures of it this is for you. I don't drive the car enough to justify keeping it any longer, I average about 250 mile per year on the car right now. The car has been used in for local advertising, parades and countless photos that people have taken of or with it.

As any vintage car this car is being sold in AS-IS condition. I would encourage anyone interested to come look at the car prior to purchasing if you can. The car is currently registered, insured, titled in my name and was inspected last month. I will help with shipping if you are going to have the car shipped but all shipping expenses are the responsibility of the buyer. If you would like more photos or have questions please feel free to contact me. The trunk contents in the photos are not included with the sale.
