LTD P6 BUYING
ALMOST 6000 of the P6 series LTD were built (including 250 Monarchs and 400 Town Cars) and survivors are easily found in the used vehicle market. Cheap examples in decent condition are far less common and $12,000 is the minimum spend for a tidy car. Providing you’re not overly concerned about appearance, untidy but usable LTDs are available at $55007000.
LPG conversions are popular and commonplace but don’t add a great deal to values when compared to petrol-only cars of similar quality. A 118-litre fuel tank was optional but it’s rare to find a car with this bootshrinking extra. “There are plenty of LTDs around but very few really tight, well-kept cars,” Steve Koukouletas said. “When my uncle wanted to move up from a ZH Marquis we had to look for ages for this car and I can’t imagine they are any easier to find today.” Silver Monarch and Town Car versions aren’t yet booming with the same ferocity as Falcon GTs and V8engined Fairmonts, and enthusiasts seeking a car to preserve might still obtain an outstanding example for less than $25,000.
