When Ray is planting the last bomb on George's Crown Vic, he reaches up past the oil filter to the distributor. The only engines with that configuration are the straight sixes, which were never used in Crown Vics or any police-package. All police cars of that era have V8s, which have the distributor on top in the center, where it's impossible to reach from the below. Ford puts the distributor at the front; GM & Chrysler at the rear. Also, the distributor clearly has only 7 wires - one for each of the 6 cylinders, and 1 from the coil.
