Crown Vic Setina push bar onto a Caprice ??

Would a 98-02 Crown Vic push bar fit onto a 96 Caprice

Appreciate the mounting would have to be altered, but would the actual push bar shape fit the Caprice front ?

I've been offered 1 here in the UK & weighing up the pro's & cons against ordering a Caprice one from the US ?

If it is the hoop style setina they are the same hoops. The difference is the mounting kits for the brackets.

Good Luck with that. They were only made for the Crown Vic's so there is no Mounting Bracket kit for the Caprice that I am aware of. You will need to custom fab the brackets.

Come to think of it, that may become a useful mod once body parts start drying up and deer season begins...

It also works VERY well for killing Toyota's when they pull out in front of you at 45mph and stop! Don't ask me how I know. LOL.

Been awhile since Ive seen a push bar on a b-body, looks good all the way up to the point where the licenses plate is kicked off to the side.
