    There is a fairly good condition 85 LTD near me. It's got a 3.8 but it's all there. It would be a cool sleeper project. There was an 85 LTD LX for sale near me a few months ago. It had an SEFI conversion with Twisted Wedge heads and a Trick Flow intake. It also had a T5. It looked mint and the guy wanted $10K for it. The car sold in about two weeks.

    Too bad they didn't include the REAL 80's LTD.

    Ultimate 80's Sleeper when built. No one ever suspects that car of being fast, no one.

    I saw that car at Carlisle back around 1998 or so. Very nice car with lots of subtle touches and tweaks that really make that car a one of a kind. I especially liked how he had installed a keyless entry pad into the top of the door. Instead of using the bezel surround, he eliminated it and made the buttons flush with the sheetmetal. Very slick idea.
    I couldn't take my eyes off that car and it made me want to go buy a Futura or a Z7 and do the same. Talked to the owner for a bit. Nice guy who was proud of his creation and he didn't seem have a huge ego about it either. I wonder where that car is today?

    BTW, nice find on the article Dan.

    I once saw a red LTD Wagon with an '86 Mustang front end. That combo is now on my bucket list...

    Here's some random Google pics of cars similar to the combo I saw:

    Gumby, that's the one! The wagon that Carm posted is bad-ass too. I just showed it to my wife and told her if I could find one, she'd be stuck driving a "Mustang" wagon for a family hauler...lol.
