Noble Birth – 1972 Ford LTD Crown Victoria Country Squire

July 31, 2014

What’s old is new again, and just as 1980s bright neon colors and skinny jeans are trendy, station wagons are regaining popularity from minivans. They’re dropping their stodgy image and re-emerging as family vehicles that, unlike minivans and SUVs, actually handle with most of the agility of their sedan and coupe siblings. If you want to revisit the first time station wagons were cool (actually, by 1972 they weren’t really cool anymore), you’ll have to pony up some decent dollars since the collector car crowd has taken notice of woodies and other period utilitarian vehicles. Check out this 1972 Ford LTD Crown Victoria Country Squire for sale for $3950 in Sacramento, CA.

Limited? 1968 Ford LTD Hardtop

April 11, 2014

Introduced in 1965, the LTD was originally a high-line trim version of the Galaxie, much as the Galaxie one-upped the Fairlane before it. As a high-end model, it was often sold as a hardtop sedan. With today’s cars being rather claustrophobic – we might be protected from impacts, but we can’t see out to avoid them worth a damn – there’s something charming and appealing about a car that forgoes pillars. And before you start coming up with “pillarless” cars like, say, the Mercedes S-class coupes, those are just coupes, and out of the reach of most of the population. If you’re looking for a pillarless car for the masses, check out this 1968 Ford LTD hardtop, for sale for $3500 in Seattle, WA.
