Enormous,Big, Large and Huge, these are words you associate with the USA, where everything is just that! Our latest acquisition is no exception to this rule! With a length of 5 meters 90 centimeter (230 inch) and weighing 2,5 tonnes, it is the Ford's largest coupe ever! With these measurements they also hung a 6.6 litre engine with a 3-speed automatic. It had a 3-year production run, at a price, even then, of $22,000. This Super-de-Luxe coupe came with a number of modern gadgets; a clock with date display, a fuel gauge showing “ tank empty" when you really have to pay a visit to the petrol station, steering wheel operated cruise control, electric seat adjustment, electric aerial, wing mirror attached external thermometer, luxury leather trim and front seat armrests and of course aircon. With Ford being environmentally aware at the time, they fitted the downsized 6.6 litre engine. For the enthusiast the loss of some power was compensated with 225-75-15 turbine rims. It came standard with a vinyl roof or you could chose to pay $187 more not to have the vinyl. The owner who ordered this car from new in 1979 choose a Champagne Yellow finish, electric sunroof and (drumroll!!!) a digital cassette player, a really special accessory at the time! This gigantic coupe has a number of styling elements; the opera windows in the C-posts, the radiator grill and concealed headlamps which popped open when in use. It amazingly still has 100% of its first lacquer, quite unheard of! The interior shows only minimal signs of use and just 25,908 miles on the clock. Mechanically a perfect car! This car is certainly striking with its stand-out styling, the huge engine and a level of driver and passenger comfort luring you back to the 80’s!
