This 1972 Ford LTD convertible is the final year for Ford's LTD full-sized luxury ragtops, but they certainly didn't hold back. This cool blue droptop is the ideal size for grabbing some friends or family and heading out on a road trip, and you'll even see it has all the ideal features for this adventure. Plus, with its ultra-desirable 429 cubic-inch V8 under the hood, it'll move everyone with effortless ease.
The style of these LTDs have gotten even better with age. Bumper laws would soon put an end to artful front ends like this one with chrome surrounding a full-feature grille and inset headlights. So with this kind of history, it's nice to have one with a very survivor-like quality. You see it everywhere from the light blue paint, to the full-length rocker trim, to the factory wheel covers. And the way the sheetmetal looks, you can see this has been well-respected throughout its history. And we can understand exactly why. This final-year convertible was the rarest LTD by far with basically only Ford's wagons and Thunderbirds commanding a higher price. So they were scarce when new and are even rarer nearly a half-century later.
The black convertible top looks distinct against the blue, but for true distinction, you'll like taking it down to show off the white interior. After all, the light blue exterior and white interior give this color combo all the appeal of an ocean wave. As a true full-sized convertible, this will seat six people with ease. The wood paneling has been preserved on the doors and dash to the level that allows this LTD to retain its luxury image. Ford's two-tier instrument panel puts all the gauges up high and the secondary controls down low, and the effect is very clean and driver-oriented. This convertible retains some nice factory features like the AM/FM stereo and provisions for the air conditioning. There are even terrific rare features for the era, like power windows and cruise control that make this large droptop ideal for cruising.
Another reason this is a driver's car is under the hood. Ford's 429 cubic-inch V8 is a legend on its own, and this one is believed to be original to the car. So we know there are already some people dreaming of creating a sleeper muscle car convertible. But before anyone gets to altering this one, take a moment to respect exceptionally honest engine bay. It keeps the survivor-like style, right down to the Motorcraft four-barrel carburetor and Powered by Ford valve covers. And this big motor convertible knows how to get around town with ease thanks to nice driving features, like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes w/discs up front.
The sale comes complete with the original warranty card and owner's manual. A rare big block convertible like this is not often also this affordable. So you know you have to act quickly if you want this LTD to be yours. Call today!!!
