1972 Ford LTD The LTD nameplate was first introduced in 1965 as Ford sought to expand upon their Galaxy 500 series. They were the highest trim level for the full size Ford model range. They were geared towards the luxury car market and offered features that had previously been reserved for Lincoln and Mercury. With the arrival of the 2nd generation in 1969 the LTD was given a major redesign. The look entirely changed and although the chassis was mostly the same the wheelbase for the full size Ford Sedans stretched to 121 inches. This 1972 belongs to that 2nd generation and is a true survivor car. It has 19,541 original miles which is pretty remarkable considering it is a 50 year old car. Redesigns for this year include a chrome bumper that stretch across the grill, a squared off deck lid, and a very unique rear bumper that incorporates inset brake lights and central 3rd brake light. All of the chrome and stainless on the car is in excellent condition throughout. The body is straight and painted in Yellow paired with a Black vinyl top. It has had 1 repaint in its lifetime and it looks great. The vinyl top is part of the original Brougham trim package which was special ordered. The glass is all in good condition and has a slight tint. All of the exterior lights are working properly with no issues. It rolls around on a set of original wheels with original Ford hubcaps. 65K 2 Door Hardtop LTD Brougham 6D Yellow ZZC Dark Tobacco U C6 Automatic Transmission 2 2.75:1 Axle Ratio 23 Philadelphia District Code The LTD era was the first time that Fords lineup was entirely powered by V8 motors.
