I've heard two different answers to this and I'd like te correct onen funnily eoough. :)

What does the LTD mean?

I know and a mte knows but we know ifferent answers. Ford here and U.S haven't answered me.

What do you guy's think?

I would like it sorted and finish this "conversation" with my mate.

Something like "Lincoln Town Design" and definately NOT "Limited". as many people think.

I forget the "D" but the L and the T are certainly Lincoln Town.

PS Sorry if you didn't win the bet but I researched this for a questionnaire I did at work

This site http://homepages.ihug.com.au/~fulton/ATW/ltd.htm says
"For many industry observers those initials came to suggest "limited edition". But when Ford Australia was ready to develop its own homegrown long-wheelbase luxury car LTD was the obvious name to adopt, combining as it did that literal meaning of "Lincoln Type Design" and the implication of being an exclusive model, produced in limited numbers for a discerning clientele. "

yeah, it's lincoln type design...

a bit of a funny name for a car if you ask me! LTD does sound impressive though. how i want a lowered black NF LTD with 18" billet chrome wheels...
