There was a time, not too long ago, when enthusiasts and collectors alike weren’t terribly interested in vehicles built in the 1980s and 1990s, but that has changed drastically in recent years. Now, these relics from the not-too-distant past have gained serious steam in that regard, even models like the older, boxier Crown Victoria. Now, we’re seeing yet another example of this, as a rather pristine 1991 Ford LTD Crown Victoria station wagon has surfaced for sale at Bring a Trailer with just 29k original miles on the clock.
It’s difficult to imagine that there’s a nicer 1991 Ford LTD Crown Victoria wagon out there in the world than this one, let alone one with fewer miles on the odometer. However, there’s a very good reason why this is the case – this particular model spent 31 years as a courtesy vehicle for the Stanley J. Krish Funeral Home in Altoona, Pennsylvania, before it was purchased by the selling dealer this year. As a result, this Light Titanium wagon looks virtually brand new, with few flaws save for a scratch or two on the outside.
This particular LTD Crown Victoria wagon came from the factory equipped with the optional Heavy-Duty Handling Suspension and Trailer Towing packages, as well as front disc brakes and rear drums. Power comes from the naturally-aspirated Ford 302 cubic-inch V8, which sends a mere 160 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque to the rear wheels via a four-speed automatic transmission and a 3.55-geared rear end.
Peek inside this classic machine, and you’ll find perfectly plush Currant Red velour seats and lots of amenities for this era, including a power-adjustable driver seat, side-facing third-row seats, cruise control, air conditioning, a factory cassette stereo, and power locks and windows. There are burn marks in the driver’s side seat, however, likely because, well, this was a time when pretty much everyone smoked. Regardless, this is still a veritable unicorn in today’s world, and for that reason, we imagine that more than a few wagon fans will find it quite enticing.

I haven’t left any comments on this site for a while now because there’s just little to nothing of interest to me on here or from FMC any more. I still check on here for interesting articles (like this one), but all I seem to see is trucks and SUV’s and/or CUV’s. Boring and sad.
So this article caught my eye. Oh, to think FMC could/would make fantastic vehicles like this again but in a modern form in sedan/wagon and 2 dr. Funny thing is that this “Wagon” is not much different from the higher sitting SUV’s today. So basically, all those SUV/CUV lovers out there are simply driving a beefed up wagon! haha.
Anyhow, this is one nice example of what Ford used to make (outside of that top that was added for the funeral home).
I think Ford’s next ‘fantastic vehicle’ for you will be called the ‘Fusion active’… think Suburu with a Ford badge.
Mike: I’ve seen pics of that Fusion Active I believe. Looks to be a nice and sporty wagon type. But is that coming to the US?
DAB, the new version of the Fusion has been in the works for several years.
The pivot to SUV’s further sidelined the model after the sedan was discontinued.
To your question, I don’t know other than to say that I, like you lament the absence of ‘cars’ of any type in the Ford lineup.
Ford and Lincoln are under increasing pressure to build some version of a car again lest the imports, KIA, Toyota and Honda completely own the sales segment.
i wonder how many “bodies” were in there?
This is what’s missing in today’s vehicles………………personality
Ah…chrome bumpers, sort of. I love my ’91 Caprice wagon.
Nice Unit. And “Where are the Spark Plugs”? 😂😂😳🤔. Man, That’s the MESS I remember under the Hood, Could use one a Those Engine Compartment NVH Cover’s to Pretty it up and Hide All that Ugliness! Nice Car with a Really Nice Ride Quality also. FORD….. JOB ONE!
Time to bring back the Country Squire!
