I happened to be walking through the customer parking lot at work today and spotted this super clean LTD...



My mom had a 75 LTD like this. Sumbitch would lay rubber for a 100 feet. One wheel peel but damn it was fun!!!

What makes it unique? Did they not offer a ragtop in the 66/67?

no convertibles were offered in the 66 or 67 Nova body, just 2 drs, 4 drs and wagons.

Friend said he saw a project truck he thought was a datsun ute in town.... I went to go see if I could find at after a dump run this morning.... sadly it was a Volkswagen... still a cool old truck though.....




Those are leaf spring live axles out back, ya know. I have always wanted to convert one to RWD using Datsun bits...

I gotta stop thinking about this before I do something really dumb...  😄

This showed up to an event this weekend. Never found the owner to find out how they like the FiTech efi. Not a show car, but a nice driver condition for sure.








The square body in the background ran for the first time in 5 years too.

By Opel ?


These were basically rebadged Ford Sierras from Europe. 👍


Ford wanted a more "European" sounding name for these cars they imported from their European division so they called them Merkur, which was basically the German spelling of Mercury...  😄


They made some pretty badass versions in the UK that I lust over...





And they raced it a bunch in European WRC...
