Greetings to my fellow Tauriceptorists (Tauriceptarians?)!

Long-time emergency vehicle enthusiast, on-and-off EMS and Fire Support volunteer of over 20 years, but a relatively new (under a year) Police Interceptor owner here. Bought my first one, a 2017 Utility with just under 300 miles back in July of 2018 from Griffin Ford by Milwaukee. Wasn't planning on another one, except that chance came along. I had a 2017 Focus (my third Focus in a row), of which I was kind of growing tired. Thoughts of a replacement led to that other "almost new" Interceptor dealer, Jacky Jones Ford in Cleveland, GA, who advertised what has to be the most unusually-configured Interceptor I have ever seen since first becoming interested in this type of vehicles all the way back in 1991. In fact, I suspect this car may be 1 of 1, at least for 2017 model year. The option list makes no sense (almost like someone was randomly checking boxes), the car appears to have been ordered by Ford for their own internal use only to spend two years sitting at the World Headquarters Garage in Dearborn. By this past February 28th it had accumulated just over 200 miles. But enough talking, here are some pics and also a copy of the window sticker (if it uploads). If anyone can figure out the backstory on this unit, I would be very curious to hear it.

Looking forward to learning more on this forum, never thought I'd be a "Taurus Person", but here we are.

I remember seeing this one for sale, didn’t last long. That color is striking and not commonly seen on the Taurus. That car is loaded with options and low mileage, very nice find overall. That dealer tends to get their hands on some good ex police/demo vehicles. Prices are steep however.

I agree, prices aren't the lowest. Jacky Jones is more or less the only dealer East of the Mississippi that does a lot of this kind of business (basically new Interceptors to the public), so no bargains to be had.

As soon as I saw it on ebay, I was all over it.

welcome to the club!
Thanks a lot!

Been enjoying the car so far. I'm starting to think it was some sort of a show car for Ford. Jacky Jones presently has for sale the car that was built right after mine (mine is HG100040, they now have HG100041). That car is black, Ecoboost, and has all kinds of operational add-ons (partition, lights, control box etc). So, maybe the took them both to shows as examples of respectively an unmarked (Fire Chief?) car and an unmarked patrol unit. Then once 2018s came out, both 040 and 041 just sat at the HQ garage until just recently.
