    Default '79 LTD Base on Facebork Marketplace

    Hazlehurst, GA - would make somebody a "good 'un"! Price looks reasonable (that's a rarity on F/M!), just need to send the wheels to a smelter somewhere:

    That does look pretty good. White can clean up pretty easily too. Come with extra battery when the first one leaves you stranded!

    I guess the only value in the sellers mind are the wheels.

    That green interior just kills it for me! And so many of those 79-81ish have it. It’s like the blue of 1985ish-1991ish except I like the blue better.

    I wonder what was cheaper for Ford to build. The slicktop with the finished seams or a full vinyl top with the bubble gum and foam seams?

    My eyes with those wheels.

    Meh, very base, beat interior and quite honestly not the best color with white IMO.

    Id pass on that one.

    It's in pretty good shape for a '79! I kinda dig the "army green" interior!!! It all looks fairly presentable except the the driver's seat could use a little re-upholstery work...

    For the year, current prices on older (collector, antique etc), and general rarity, that's a good deal, Especially with those wheels that can be resold for decent money

    Right??

    I kind of chuckle when people take very late model or new cars and rip the factory aluminum wheels off in favor of aftermarket junk. If only they knew how expensive & well made those factory wheels are by comparison to what they just slapped on there..

    I wish I had a dollar for every classic "shoebox", "muscle car", or really any cool classic 50's/60's/70's car where someone completely destroyed the awesome look by slapping on some ridiculous-ass 18, 19, 20+ inch wheels. I can even understand 16's or maybe 17's with the goal of clearing some modern huge disc brakes, but even those do nothing for a classic car's looks. It's like putting clown-shoes on a car!!!

    My dad got a set of chrome 18's in some trade. Initially he had them on the '71 LTD just as roller wheels. For shits and giggles he put them on the '62 Ranch Wagon, but ended up in a magazine as trendy and fashionable (now seven years ago)

    I'm not advocating for 100% "concours show correct" with faithfully "reproduced" overspray, runs, chalk marks, etc. for every old car either. They just typically look like absolute $#!+ with those ridiculous diameter wheels!

    I have to admit, I've seen worse. Those don't seem to clash as bad as what I'm used to. Maybe it's the angle or lighting! Love the flames!

    I did roll one of those next to my MGM last summer before dad sold the wheels.
