The P6 LTD was based on Ford’s square-edged ZH Fairlane and appeared in showrooms during September 1976.
Mechanically, the new LTD was proven and uncomplicated – a 5.8-litre V8 with a three-speed FMX transmission and sky-high 2.75:1 rear axle ratio that diminished acceleration but kept average fuel consumption at under 20L/100km. Four-wheel disc brakes were standard, as were variable-ratio power steering and a limited-slip differential.
Interior appointments were a step above Fairlane standards and helped justify an introductory price of $14,000 that would climb to $17,500 by mid-1979. The dash was finished in fake timber, a remote boot release and air-conditioning were standard. Windows from the outset were electrically-operated and six-way electric seat adjustment was added during 1978.
Leather trim was a commonly-specified option, except on ‘Silver Monarch’ models that cosseted their occupants in cranberry-coloured crushed velour and the Town Car that had leather seats as standard equipment.
