we have actually started building a few Intrepid cop cars this week. They come with rubber floor mat not carpet, they have bucket seats with a coulm shifter. they also are wired for a trunk mounted battery and have lots of extra wiring for the police equipment. The engine is a 3.5 300M-R/T motor. all heavy duty cooling ,alt. and brakes. From what I saw the brakes have different callipers and a different master cylinder . The suspension is even more HD than a 300 with the performance handling package
Don't laugh!!! The other day, my wife was laughing hysterically because down the street from where I was driving, there it was, a black Intrepid Taxi. What a downer!!!
Not an RT but I couldn't figure out whether it was an SE or ES. Too far.
Yep... Nascar, Police, Hacks. What next,,,pimp mobiles??
First, driving around San Fransisco, I saw a LOT of Intrepid cabs. Anyway, here's the big question... will the parts for the Police Intrepid be available for everyday people like me? Specifically, can I get a 150MPH speedometer?
I was watching this one movie, The Watcher (I think), and they had as a police car a 2nd gen Intrepid. It was unmarked and I believe an ES. The fog lights looked normal, but when the police sirens and lights were activated, the fog lights doubled as police lights. I thought it was rather cool.

When I go to Toronto there is tons of Intrepid taxis. They are just the base model 2.7L.
About the front bumper guys, I was thinking abut this the other night, what about just going to the junk yard and TRY and find a bumper from an SE or base(pre-2000) and slap it on your ES or R/T??
Just a thought
They wreck a new Intrepid in that new movie "The Rat Race" a green SE.
I saw the Watcher, the Intrepid was probably the only good part in the movie...that movie was HORRIBLE!! But it was cool they used our car. They show a couple seconds of hard driving in it...pretty cool.
You will see a lot of Intrepid Taxi's in canada because they are built in Canada. Im sure the taxi commision gets some sort of funding from the government... and im sure they have a say in what vechicles are bought.
Thats why you only see Crown Victorias and Impalas... at least here in NYC. You will never see any imported taxis.
Well... then again, i did see a MERCEDES taxi a few years back. If i remember correctly, it was a minivan.
Djpill-Crown Victorias are also built in Canada .I have never heard of the goverment telling taxis what cars to buy. they buy what lasts and what they get the best price on.
Madtxn - yes the parts will fit , but I dont think you will be able to get them at the dealer . Im sure they are for police only.
