Yes here is by far the craziest crown vic sale i've seen this year $18k for a used 07 CVPI. Surely NOT going to happen in this day and age :roll:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayI ... K:MEWAX:IT
Vehicle is/was owned by the City of Palmer, not a private party. That is very pricey for a fully marked unit with those miles. The equipment is worth more then the car, but way too much stuff for off-duty construction work. My last Tahoe went to one of these officers, he just runs a Edge Freedom with a few grille & Microman in the rear deck.


I find it always interesting when seller cover their plates on eBay, but the VIN is there and that works the same running it. Then the Youtube vidoes show the plate clearly, so what is the point in covering it on eBay, well none???? :roll:

Interesting, did you catch that the videos at Youtube also have some Sonny Burgess country music star? Well with a simple search on Google finding Sonny Burgess Facebook page, looks like Clint Burgess is his brother who is the Constable that is selling the CVPI. Maybe they should post that in the listing to make it worth 18K, LOL!! :lol:

i think that is 2000 for the entire package, bar, siren, scanner and switch box. still a little high, but not just 2 grand for a bar.
I think that it could have been a typo maybe one to many 0's. If not 2 grand for that is just insane.

$2000 for a 6 strobe Edge...? Really? That "extra" 0 is in his price in the title AND description is just scary.


Not to mention you can buy a brand new Liberty from Galls for about half that.


You'd think people charging that much for 'common' stuff would know that any buyers can look around a LOT of other places to see what they REALLY cost.

They never sold new for that price, in my old 1995 price book the independent rotator version with TCL has a MSRP of $1168.75 and take about 40% off that for street price. There is nothing that rare about the independent rotator AeroDynic, but the synchronized can be worth some money in good condition to a collector. Especially the 52" all light with reversible motor for that arrow left & right option, that is a rare bar. I would not pay more then $150 for that light bar you posted.

oh yeah, I forgot.


Included with the AeroDynic 25tcl is another AeroDynic 22i... No picture of it....


Still pretty overkill for over a grand... :roll:

I was just about to post the exact same link..


Not a Whelen light, cheap China light and trying to avoid final value fees by charging $335 for shipping. I am sure it will be removed soon as eBay and/or Whelen will see it and cancel it. I copied the listing so others can see it when it gets removed.

Get yours today...super bright! Off brand but bright as can be...
PLEASE READ ALL OF THE DESCRIPTION PRIOR TO BUYING SO EVERYTHING IS UNDERSTOOD...I DO THINGS


A BIT DIFFERENT IN MY LISTINGS THAN OTHER SELLERS FOR THE BENEFIT OF YOU THE CUSTOMER


PER EBAY POLICY THIS LIGHT IS SOLD WITH


CLEAR LENSES!!!!!!


PLEASE EMAIL ME WITH ANY ?'S


Easy to install with the universal brackets that slide


under your existing visor hardware with little to no


modifications. Most installations can be done in


under 20 minutes. Fits great on the rear deck too.


12V Plug with On/Off switch


2.5 amps


15 Flash patterns


Vibration dampeners included


8 LED modules, 4 each side


4 LEDs per module


Housing constructed of painted aluminum. No


need to worry about this one melting in the sun.


SIDE NOTE: BUY IT NOW (BIN) PRICE is so low beacuase the shipping price makes up the difference. EX- 75.00 BIN price with 300.00 in shipping for a total of 375.00 only charges me $7.50 in final value fees and $4 dollars in paypal fees, where a $375.00 BIN price would charge me $27 in final value fees and $16 in paypal fees. Thus I am saving you the customer over 30 dollars listing it this way. I do it this way because the BIN price is the price that EBAY and PAYPAL charges their fees from, not the shipping charges. Therefore I can bring my product to you at a cheaper price due to less ebay and paypal fee's


THE LIGHT PICTURED IS A LINEAR MODEL...PLEASE NOTE THIS MODEL IS NOT LINEAR, EACH LED MODULE CONTAINS 4 SUPER LED'S AND EACH SIDE HAS 4 LED MODULES FOR A TOTAL OF 32 LEDS IN THE LIGHT, 16 ON EACH SIDE!
