Classic Car Overview

Here we have a 1978 Ford LTD II 4 Door Pillar Hard Top for sale. This is a gorgeous survivor piece thats showing just over 20,000 miles. A truly remarkable find, this car is just as nice as the day it was bought new. The body on this car is stunning as it doesnt show any signs of damage or abuse. Down the sides all the body lines are perfect, and the fit of all the doors, hood, and trunk are equally impressive with every gap being even and symmetrical. This car is covered in its original Dove Gray paint that still has a gorgeous finish. Its accented by the red dual accent pin stripes along with the factory Dove Gray vinyl top thats in excellent condition. All of the glass in this 78 is beautiful and shows little to now wear. Both front and rear bumpers look to be original as well and still have a brilliant shine. All the side trim is just as nice along with all the window trim. This is a stunning vehicle and as you walk around it your appreciation will only continue to grow. To finish off the look its sitting on the 14 Wheels with Hub Caps and White Wall Tires. Next, we will look at the interior of this 78. On the inside its stunning to see something so well kept as all the interior looks to be as close to original as we have ever seen. The Russet Red color scheme is the perfect accent to the exterior combo and makes for a gorgeous vehicle inside and out. The bench seat with fold down arm rest is in phenomenal condition and rides like new. Looking at the dash we can see it shows no signs of damage or abuse and that the pad is still soft and has clearly been kept out of the sun. All the gauges look amazing along with the wood grain accent and they are working as they should. It has the original steering wheel along with the original radio. The headliner still has a phenomenal fit and all the carpet looks amazing and is not worn. Inside the trunk all looks to be factory and has the original trunk mat and spare. Finally, we will get to the driveline of this Ford. Under the hood its powered by the 302 V8 engine that is original to the car. Its a true time capsule under the hood as it looks like it would have when new in 78. As you can see from the firewall and inner fenders everything is solid and in excellent condition. The 302 is dressed in the factory valve covers and air cleaner. We can also see that it is a factory Air Condition car that is working. It also comes with Power Steering and Power Brakes with Disc on the front. When we look under this LTD II its just as impressive as it has clearly been extremely well cared for its entire life. All of the floor pans and frame are solid and in great condition. The 302 V8 runs through the C4 Automatic Transmission and stock rear end with 2.75 gears. On the highway it runs and drives phenomenal while also handling with ease. This would be great addition to collect or cruise.
