New Member and first time Panther owner.
Hello from Toronto. I recently aquired a 2009 P71 that was used by the Ontario Provincial Police (they patrol the province's highways and provide policing for rural areas and places that don't have their own police depts). It has a 3:27 Trac-Loc axle. This particular P71 has an interesting history. The OPP had their 100th anniversary in 2009. To mark the occasion, they ordered 6 Street Appearance Package units (no spotlight, the chrome package, full wheel covers, but with the cloth buckets and rubber floor), then they added the usual cruiser equipment, push bars, light bars, cage, etc. These six cars were used for promotional events and holidays, events such as car shows, job fairs and the like. One is in the OPP museum. As far as I know, they were not used as normal highway cruisers, because of their pristine interiors and low miles and hours. Mine had 96,000 kilometres (60,000 miles) and only 576 hours. So it has all the police upgrades but was not beat on or abused. Drives great, much nicer than the regular OPP cruisers that I had test driven. Here is a pic of it, plus a couple from when they were in service. (mine's door number is 5-100).

RE: New Member and first time Panther owner.
Thanks for all your welcomes and comments. Here is a link to pics the seller had in his ad. The only thing I changed was that I now have the Ford OEM center caps. Dont like the plastic wheel covers.
