In what some consider the height of brand engineering, for 1977 Ford merged its Torino and Gran Torino lines into the intermediate LTD II that lasted only three model years. The 41K original mile 1978 example originally listed in October 2020 on Craigslist in Orchard Park, New York, by the original owner clearly shows how well preserved a car can remain in Buffalo, New York if you keep it off the salt covered roads of Western New York from about mid-October through mid-April.
Here’s the seller’s description:
“1978 Ford LTD II in excellent shape. The original owner bought off the showroom floor. Undercoated when new, solid body, never saw a winter, 41,000 original miles, 302, many new parts, original paint, stored inside, covered. No trades. Do not need help selling, interested local parties only.”
