For those wondering, there was never a convertible version of the Crown Victoria, making this an actual one-off. This 1999 Ford Crown Victoria was spotted for sale on Facebook Marketplace, an ad posted by a page called Kruze N Kleen. The four-door sedan has been heavily modified into a two-door convertible by welding the rear doors shut, moving the B-pillar back quite a bit, and, literally, dropping the roof. Yes, there is no roof to speak of, making it perfect for those who live and breathe the "top down" life. The car has a little over 186,000 miles on the odometer, and no additional info was posted about engine modifications or interior condition.
It should still have the throaty 4.6-liter naturally aspirated V8 under the hood, and, if the looks alone don't sell it, that engine makes this purchase a tempting one, indeed. From the pictures posted, we can tell that the interior needs some touching up, but a little cleaning and elbow grease can do wonders. Or you could let the rain do all the work. In any case, this convertible Crown Vic is a great conversation starter, and we'd buy it in a heartbeat just for the kicks.
