The 1984 Ford LTD LX – The Hot Fox That Slipped Under The Radar

Introduced during the 1984 model year the LTD LX featured a 5.0-liter throttle-body fuel injected V-8 engine which cranked out 165 hp and 245 lb-ft of torque standard four-speed automatic transmission handling suspension quick ratio rack and pinion steering (15:1) performance exhaust with dual tips plus 14 inch alloy road wheels and P205/70R14 tires. On the outside it was distinguished from regular LTDs by black instead of bright metal window trim moldings and a body colored grille plus a small LTD LX emblem on the trunk lid. Inside in place of a split bench were standard front bucket seats a unique instrument cluster with a more sporting speedometer and tach plus a standard floor mounted shifter and console. Priced comparably with the Mustang GT the LTD LX was a peppy car in its day offering a great blend of gutsy acceleration and predictable rear-drive handling. However despite a fairly extensive initial marketing program sales never took off and although some 200000 LTDs were produced for the ’84 model year just a fraction of those were LXs.
