1979 Ford LTD 351 Windsor from North America
A fast car if worked on a little
I had to change the transmission, as the transmission would leak transmission fluid.
I changed the starter, replaced the valve cover gaskets, I am going to have to fix a lot of rust that is on the floor pan, I had to replace the exhaust system, and I had to change the radiator.
It shifts hard, when I go from park to reverse or park to drive or any other shifting, it "kicks" and moves the car.
The rear differential needs to be overhauled.
The interior is very comfortable.
The car could be really fast if it had a new carburetor and if the engine was rebuild, it would haul.
The car drives like a boat.
It handles moderately well, could use some work though.
The miles per gallon could do better too.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
