1978 Ford LTD II Brougham Coupé.jpg

Ford LTD II. 1977–9 (prod. n/a). 2-door coupé, 4-door sedan, 5-door wagon. F/R, 302, 351, 400 in³ (V8 OHV). Reskin of intermediate Ford Torino (1972–6), but with the normally full-sized LTD nameplate to give the impression of downsizing during 1970s’ fuel crisis years. Overly soft suspension, with resultant poor handling. Relatively cramped at rear given the large size. Retained Fairlane name in Venezuela.


Manufacturing locations: Lorain, Ohio, USA; Atlanta, Georgia, USA

Marque: Ford | Predecessor: Ford Torino (1972–6) | Successor: Ford Granada (1981–2)

q.v. Mercury Cougar (1977–9)
