1985 Ford LTD LX

All posts about projects to the LTD LX!

Current Status: Sold and missed.

About/History:
I bought the LTD LX on 9/11/04 from New Mexico with 120k miles, and am its third owner. Being from NM, it is pretty well rust free – a good starting point, and it’s light for a big car.

Only 3260 were made between 84 and 85 and I think very few are left. Basically it is (or was originally) an LTD with an 85 Mustang drivetrain – a 5.0 HO CFI and an AOD. Also, a 7.5″ rear with 3.27s.

    I know it’s been a while but was wondering if you still have the info regarding the wiring harness adaptation to the ltd as im about to swap in a v8 in mines.

    Sorry for the delay, I haven’t been too good about keeping up on here. I pretty much used the manual I have posted and made the proper connections to the green and brown connectors. Let me know if you still need more info and I’ll see if I can find anything more specific. If you’re doing a swap it won’t be a problem, but the original CFI 5.0 distributor also used a different reluctor ring.
