1987 Ford Country Squire LX 5.0 EFI from North America
Fantastic comfortable long journey car
Coolant looked like coffee with creamer in it when I bought it; took 3 flushes over 3 months to get it clean.
The overdrive is so tall that the cruise control will let the car slow to 45 on a 1-2% grade unless you drop it into regular drive by hand; in other words, in cruise it will not downshift on its own.
Car starts right up, even in minus 25 degree F. temps.
She runs so smooth and quiet that you might not realize it is running, and try to start it while it is running.
I have had a class one receiver hitch installed to pull a motorcycle trailer, and it pulls it so nice you don't even know it is back there.
The ride and general comfort of the car is unreal. For such a big car, it sure is fun to drive, and it just has a nice classy feel to it.
Very quiet, no rattles or any wind noise at all.
I have the "no fake wood side panels" option with some mild vinyl graphics, and I get compliments almost every time I stop! It is a "baby blue" factory color, with raspberry/cranberry graphics.
I would recommend to any friend of mine, that if they could find a similar low mile example in the general condition, this one is in to jump on it!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
