The Australian-built LTD was released in 1973, effectively replacing the imported Galaxie as the top-line model in the local Ford range. Known as the P5, it was initially based on the ZF then ZG Fairlanes, albeit with a wheelbase stretched even further. Available initially only as a four-door sedan, a two-door hardtop version known as the Landau was also released to sit alongside the LTD. Both were given 351ci Cleveland engines as standard with a three-speed automatic the sole transmission. Fully optioned with retractable door ‘hidden’ headlights, power windows and steering, air-conditioning and electric windows, the P5 LTD was the perfect choice for the patriotic Australian executive. In 1976 a new P6 series was introduced, and the Landau was dropped due to poor sales. The LTD continued as the high-end luxury staple of the local Ford range through to 2007. Today, early examples are rare and sought-after with their 351ci engines, ample space and luxurious cabins, making them mechanically reliable and effective cruisers.
