The Golden Wheels 1997 Ford Crown Victoria Police Car was produced during the early 2000’s. The casting is a copy of the Matchbox version produced from 1997 to 2009. It either came with a lightbar or no lightbar on this example. The front bumper is plastic and part of the base.
I found this beat up Pennzoil example at a Brooklyn flea market recently for a $1.00. I took it apart for a repaint. I originally was going to paint it white, however there was a horrible gap between the front wheel and bumper so I stripped it to bare metal and repainted it black. I also took some Matchbox Ringed Disc chrome wheels from my junk pile to replace the crappy original ones. After putting the body together, I did my usual chrome and paint marker detailing. I used a toothpick for the headlights, front grille badge and rear license plate.
