eek LTD exports to the UK!!

just got a nice Ford UK brochure 1981 / 1982 today and when i opened it up, i had to double take. there, in all its glory was our very own LTD. Ford Personal Import Export were taking these into teh UK...

Anyone who has ever driven over there would agree that the car would be nice on te motorways, but try parking one of those in a town car park. forget it. and they brought in the 5.8 litre V8...with english fuel prices...

wonder how many they ever sold.

on a side note, they came with a lot of kit...air con, central locking and six way power operated seats. quite amazing for their time really.


You wash your car like it was your firstborn child, you tend to its needs like it was your own body, you protect it like it's your family, then you drive it like you stole it.

2002 Ford Falcon AU3 XR6
1985 Ford Sierra XR4i
1980 Ford Escort RS2000

I remember seeing a picture of an '81/'82 LTD driving through London. I don't think they would have sold very well though. Is there a market outside Australia where the Falcon did sell ok?

A whole bunch of AU wagons with Fairlaine front bodywork were just recentlty sent to the UK as Funeral cars. I saw them under cover at the Laverton (melb) site of Patricks a few weeks ago. on some enquiries I found out they were UK bound.
