Though it was the final year of the 1st generation, the 1968 LTD looked nothing like previous model years. New were the hidden headlights, and an overall styling refresh. The LTD was introduced as an affordable-luxury car; based on basic Fords yet upgraded with premium features. This LTD has a middle-range 390, though monster 427 and 428 were available. Standing out with its vinyl roof and sweet hubcaps, this LTD has great patina: well-used, but not uncared for.
On a different topic, today is the one-year anniversary of the creation of this blog. It's been really interesting and fun.
