Better Days – 1970 Ford LTD XL

April 13, 2016

Having just looked at an example of a now-rare Ford coupe, let’s take a look at another less-common coupe from the same manufacturer. Eighteen years makes enough of a difference that if you looked up “complete opposite of the Ford EXP” in the dictionary, you’d probably find a picture of a Ford LTD XL. Funny enough, the LTD XL coupe was never that much of a success either, in spite of its interesting styling, which showed that Ferrari is not the only F-brand that could make cars with a flying-buttress roof. Let’s take a closer look at this 1970 Ford LTD XL for sale for $3500 in Battle Ground, WA.

Action Star – 1975 Ford LTD Brougham

January 13, 2016

Have you ever wanted to share the experience of a select few? Yes, that’s right, the experience of stunt drivers on shows like Simon & Simon, The Rockford Files and Hart to Hart, struggling to remain seated on cushy bench seats while forcing their asthmatic V8-powered, rental-spec sedans into oversteering. And of course, hubcaps flying off, a thing that really happened, at least based on experience with the formative (and wholly unrelated) RustyButTrusty VW Rabbit back in about 1986. If your answer to this compelling proposition is “yes, please!”, open up the listing for this 1975 Ford LTD Brougham for sale for $3500 in Columbus, NE.

Not Limited – 1966 Ford LTD

September 19, 2014

Many enthusiasts would agree that American manufacturers hit some design high points in the 1960s – freeing themselves from the clutter of tailfins and excessive chrome of the 1950s, and simultaneously blissfully unaware of the 1970s constraints imposed by safety bumpers, headlight and bumper height regulations, and more. Based on the Galaxie line of cars, the LTD was the top of the line for the 12th generation full-size Ford, and was available with V8 power from 289 to 428 cubic inches. And while it’s a bit of a grandma car, seeing one of these parked on a corner of a postwar suburban street evokes the height of the cold war, space race, and more. Check out this 1966 Ford LTD for sale for $3000 in Sparks, NV.
