Up for your consideration is a excellent example of a unmolested 1973 LTD with the Brougham trim package. This was Grandpa's Sunday driver. As you can see from the pictures it is in excellent shape for its age with only 49583 miles on it!! This car has been garage kept at a vacation home so it has remained in great shape. To the best of my knowledge it has all original parts and has not been modified in any way. This being said please keep in mind that this is a 42 year old machine and even though it is in great shape the are a few beauty marks, ome of which show up in pictures and others like fine scratches are hard to see. There is very little rust anywhere on the whole car but there are a few small nicks and so one that have a little surface rust ( Please see pics). All of the doors open and close effortlessly as they should, he hood and trunk operate flawlessly. As you can see in the pictures the paint is deep and glossy with no evident oxidation or peeling. The white vinyl top is intact with no cracks or severe wear marks. All of the glass is clear and unbroken with no stone chips or clouding issues.
The Brougham interior is nearly perfect with only on wear spot on the driver side carpet near the rocker ( Please see pic) and one crack in the vinyl piping on the front of the drivers seat. The dash is not sun faded and has no cracks ( even in the speaker area!!) all of the door panels are in excellent shape with the exception of on tiny crack on the lower front of the drivers side door arm rest. Other than the small wear spot in the drivers carpet and two tinycigarette burns below the main ashtraythe interior is nearly perfect, he headliner does not sag or have any damage and the rear deck is not sun faded or damaged. All of the interior features appear to operate as the should. The power seat has full range of motion, ll the windows go up and down as they should, ll of the gauges and lights seem to be in proper working order as does the horn. Recentmaintenance done included a complete tune up and carb service as well as a oil change. The under hood area is in nice shape with most of the original equipment still intact. The air intake hose is cracked ( see pic) but that does not affect performance in any way. The 400m engine starts easily and runs smoothly, he transmission shifts smoothly and does not slip. The car is equipped with air conditioning and the pump does turn but there is not a belt on it so I cannot tell you for sure if the A/C system will need attention. The brake system is in good working condition and stops the car properly.
Overall this car is in great shape for its age. It looks great, rive great and is ready to hit the road. But PLEASE keep in mind this is a 42 year old machine and will have imperfections. I have tried to represent this as honestly as I can. Please feel free to ask questions or come and test drive the car prior to bidding. I will be happy to take or send more pics if you need. Please let me know
