  • Crown Vic question, only slightly off topic

    My wife and I have decided a CNG Crown Vic would fit our needs perfectly, if we could find one with a bench front seat. Since they don't seem plentiful in that configuration, I thought I could buy one of the more common bucket front seat models and put a used bench front in it's place.

    I'm just looking for re-assurance that the floor pan and mounting points are the same between the two. I can't imagine they'd be different, but want to double check.

    I would double check for Ford; I know that some time the seat belt anchor locations are different. They will be a Chevy Impala coming out in the next month or so that is dictated CNG not sure what the seat belt configuration is on that.

      I just looked it up, and the Impala is available in a configuration to seat six. I'm sure it will be three times the cost of a decent used Crown Vic though. I'll try my Ford dealer to see if they know, but they're typically not much help in situations like this.

        A used 2008 Impala is selling for between 14,000 and 18,000 on KSL. An EPA certified conversion is $11,000 but you do qualify for state and federal tax credits for this conversion.

          Unfortunately, I'm talking about spending $11k total.

            You would think they would be the same, but chances are they are not. The floor pan will have flat spots where they should be so the seat will fit. You will have to drill the holes in the floor, and bolt the seat down.
