The Ford LTD (pronounced el-tee-dee) was first built in 1965 on the Galaxie platform as a top of the line for Ford’s full sized offerings. In 1979 the LTD was downsized to Ford’s Panther platform and in 1983 it was turned into a midsized thing on Ford’s Fox platform…which was a good thing for people […]
When I first received this tip with a rave review from DT regular Art C, I thought perhaps Art needed his CO2 detectors checked for function…but then I spent some more time examining the curves of this appliance white Escort and decided that I like it. Perhaps I got a computer virus from the tip? Anyway, some words of wisdom from Art: I don’t know why, but I want to buy this. I think it’s the blue interior combined with a manual wagon that is making me a little hot and steamy…Seriously though, this thing looks to be in GREAT shape! It’s a shame that motor is a dog and ford 90s build quality left something to be desired. Guaranteed to be the only one in your neighborhood though.

The Ford LTD (pronouced el-tee-dee) was first built in 1965 on the Galaxie platform as a top of the line for Ford’s full sized offerings. In 1979 the LTD was downsized to Ford’s Panther platform and in 1983 it was turned into a midsized thing on Ford’s Fox platform…which was a good thing for people who enjoyed a fun driving experience. The new rack-and-pinion steering, unibody construction, and drivetrain/suspension parts shared with the Mustang meant the LTD finally went from making its drivers sick to making its passengers sick.

Classic car prices are always fluctuating, and for many various reasons, instead of slow appreciating with time, classics seem get a bump from cheap to expensive that happens overnight to the joy of sellers and detriment of buyers. But sometimes you can find a car that appears to have been priced without the recent bump factored in — as if the car is presented through a warp hole or time jump…and I am always happy to feature those cars, even if they might be from a dirty scammer. This next car is a rarified LX Fox Mustang with a 5.0 V8 and a manual gearbox — and it looks wicked. Find this 1987 Ford Mustang LX 5.0 offered for $6,500 in Houston, TX via craigslist.

It’s hard to believe that the Fox Body Mustang is 41 years old….well not today’s example, but it is 31 and not exactly a spring chicken. Let me put that in perspective…imagine you are living in 1989 (that’s not that much of a stretch) and you tried to daily drive a Ford from 1958…or even […]
I’ve always been a moderate fan of Ford’s Fox-body Mustang — it does offer a decent platform with manual gearboxes, rear-wheel-drive, and V8 power — but with an emphasis on the later models that offer fuel injected engines and more power…but recently I’ve become obsessed with the quad-headlight Fox models…because..well…more is more. Find this 1983 Ford […]
The third generation Ford Mustang, commonly called the Fox Body, was sold from 1979 through 1993. You probably want a cool notchback version with the sweet 5.0 V8…but today we’ve got the bargain basement 4-cylinder version that was advertised for $13,270 out the door. Find this 1991 Ford Mustang LX here on eBay bidding for $4100 CAD ($3187 […]
The Police version of any car has a special attraction because of the cop shocks, cop steering, cop motor…etc…but within the Fox-body world it brings the added cool factor of being an LX notchback version. On all other Mustang body styles the fastback was way cooler, but with the Fox (1979-1993) it somehow flipped the […]
A few decades ago, Ford teamed up with 7-Up to (in the most American way possible) to promote cars and sugary soft drinks at the 1990 NCAA basketball championships. The idea was to give away 30 green Mustang convertibles to people who could make a half-court shot. Somewhere, someone got cold feet and the contest […]
