We’re not in the car sales business, but Hank sent me this link to what must be Australia’s Broughamiest Brougham ever, the Ford LTD P6. I know it’s just a stretched Falcon, but someone in the U.S. needs to buy this car (listed at AUS$28,990; or about $30,000 in greenbacks). Wouldn’t it confuse folks this summer at your local Friday night “drive in”?
What caught my eye among the shots was this one showing the sort of cobbled-up appearance of certain low-volume cars back in the day–which is understandable, since the volume of these cars must have been quite low. But check out those chrome levers sticking out of the console–you sure wouldn’t see those on an American Brougham–and all that soft vinyl all over the console in place of Detroit’s hard plastic.
Here’s the dash. A bit simplistic, but better than some of Detroit’s efforts of this era.
The Cordoba rip-off front end will confuse them even further. So who’s going to bite?
