1979 Ford Crown VictoriaThis is a 1979 Ford LTD Landau. This vehicle was ordered fully loaded with the optional 351 engine which was discontinued in 1981 to the civilian market. The car was also outfitted with a factory ford CB radio of which the manual is still in the glove box. This LTD has just 45000 miles and is in original survivor condition. The sticker price in 1979 for this car was over $10,000 and at the time the flagship of Ford Sedans which I believed pioneered the way for these LTD/Crown Vicorias all the way up to 2011. It has been in shows in the survivor class in the recent past and sure does get heads turning as many of these cars did not survive in this condition. I did not plan to be selling this car and there is some sentimental attachment which I will be happy to pass the story down to the next proud owner. The car has had complete mechanical service and is all up to date which includes... oil change, spark plugs, cap rotor, trans filter and fluid also new rear springs and shocks etc. The only complaint I would have is the valve cover gaskets could be done soon as the car will leave a drop of oil or two on the ground when sitting for an extended period of time. We have taken this vehicle on 5+ hour road trips and it has been an excellent reliable old car. The only modification that has been done to this LTD is the dual exhaust and chrome tips. I am sure I am forgetting something but please by all means just ask I will be glad to explain more about the car for serious buyers. I have also taken a full high quality video to show condition as well which I will be adding to the listing soon.
As expected LTD quirks listed below!-Windows work sometimes (at one time they all worked perfect maybe a fuse I am not sure but the rears do work)-AC works on and off-The factory CB radio will turn on the amp but the handheld does not turn on so it is not functional at the moment-The gas tank has had a patch but is also original-The Headliner needs to be replaced
What makes this car unique is the color combination as well as the abnormal over all condition of the car. During the time I have owned this car I have taken excellent care of it. As expected it has been used only during summer months and stored winters inside a climate controlled garage. There is zero pitting in all of the aluminum and chrome as well as no rust on the car to be found. I am not very desperate to sell this vehicle but at the moment we need the space free. This is your chance to get a great deal on a rare unique LTD. I have not seen another LTD or crown victoria in this condition in person and I travel to many shows.On Sep-29-16 at 17:44:23 PDT, seller added the following information:On Sep-29-16 at 18:16:30 PDT, seller added the following information:
Some things I would like to add. I have added a video to the listing for a better understanding on the description of the car. The headliner is not there and needs replaced which I already stated above but also I would like to add that the fuel gauge does not work. There is some paint chipping in the front left fender and on the trunk there is a couple scuffs which is clear to see in the video as well as the rear trunk chrome plastic trim has some peeling but again its all original equipped. Another quick fact is that this car has got the older 351 engine with the basic Carb Set up not the newer kind which had some odd leaky issues going on with it from what I was told. This car could sit on a showroom floor with how clean it is... This paint is OEM Original and these did not have the highest quality paint in their day so for it to be in this condition it is very significant in determining how pampered its life has been as you already know if you have been around other LTD/Crown Victoria in the past. Ebay did not have an option to select for just LTD so it is listed as LTD Crown Victoria. Since I have owned the vehicle I have put over 5,000 miles on it and I would trust it to drive where ever your located. This car is turn key fly in drive home. If you for any reason are not happy with it then I would be fine with unwinding the sale. I have described the car to the best of my ability and if you have any questions at all please please feel free to call me at 707-502-8125 my name is Jerry. Thank you and good luck bidding!
Sorry for the song on the video during the time I took this video I tried to walk around and describe the car but I had this underwater cover on the GO PRO Hero and it didnt take to my voice too well so it is what it is but you get the idea on the condition of the car. Its as nice as youll find.
