In the early 1970s, one of the most popular cars was the Ford LTD. The next generation from the Ford Galaxie, the LTD was bigger, bolder and certainly noticed.
LTD was the acronym for luxury trim decor.

The sport coupe featured two doors, bucket seats and a distinctive central console, with a strong ventilation system, all decked out in woodgrain.
In 1971, Ford also introduced a convertible version of the LTD, but was discontinued two years due to changes tin design and car regulations. The price for the hot convertible? $4094.00
Despite continuing changes to design and style, the Ford LTD was one of the bestselling cars of the 1970s – a big car with numerous fans.
