I am from Gander, Newfoundland. The car came from Amhert, NS. Your message has me excited as I hoped that someone on here might be from that area and know the car or its history. I hope that person to be you!

Cheers

For the first time, I did a search for tawny gold metallic and this forum came up. I like the color as it changes depending on the suns angle.

My first car was a '71 Ford LTD that I acquired at 15 in 1978. I wanted a muscle car so I purchased the RR the next year for $1200. Drove it on and off between other vehicles...'69 RR/'69 RR convertible, '65 AMC Rambler American/'65 Fury III/'60 Ford F100...then parked it in the barn at our Nebraska farm in '87 before moving to LA, then Texas followed by Colorado back in 2000.

It was a 340 auto car but the engine threw a rod while doing 90 driving on my 17th birthday. Through in a 360 then a 400 with a 440 super commando top end.

The last night I had it out it was hit-and-run in the quarter panel while parked outside of my girlfriends house in Omaha. It also has rust along the rear quarters. I had also replaced a fender with a '71 (I assume that it would not be too difficult to modify the side marker light to fit a '72). In the late nineties, I drove it from one barn to another at my friends farm about twenty miles away and it has not been started since. A long time ago, I hoped to repaint it candy cranberry after seeing a it on a hot rod in a magazine. Now, I am not so sure. Considering these are not popular, I may modify it somewhat...if I ever find that chest of gold bullion that I buried.

I recently saw an LTD at a car show and still no '72 RR's and maybe only one '71. I know that they were not popular in their day due to emissions/lack of a hemi option, etc. All of these years I wished that I still had the '69 but now realize that I prefer rare cars over popular cars.
