Are they not interchangable, considering the bolt patterns? Remember to update the spare if you go to the larger wheels.
Can anybody please help me out on how to go about adapting 2003 wheels on my 2000 Crown Vic. Thanks
I have read thru another post in this forum about heater and a/c blower motors that stopped working suddenly. I have a similar problem with a 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis LSE with climate control (Electronic Automatic Temperature Control or EATC for short). I have checked the obvious including the inside passenger compartment fuses plus the power distribution box underneath the front hood with particular attention to both the blower motor relay ...

The same basic platform goes back to '79, although with significant improvements over the years, especially the 2003's. Personal speculation, but I think the ... Read More
For clarification, after 1983, Ford's LTD and Mercury's Marquis/Marquis Brogham were built on the midsize Fox platform shared with the T-Bird and the Mustang.

I own a Kelley Blue Book which lists the body lengths of both the 1991 and 1992 Crown Victorias and Grand Marquis. The 1992's have a shorter body length. And they have no more passenger room than my 1985 Marquis Brougham with a fuel-injected 3.8L V6 which is classified as mid-size. The 1991's on the other hand had a longer body and more passenger and leg room. And they were equipped ... Read More
