Rust at­tacks vir­tu­ally ev­ery­where but is most dev­as­tat­ing in the lower fire­wall, rear spring at­tach­ment points, in­ner sills, floors and un­der the vinyl roof cov­er­ing. Have a good look at the steer­ing box at­tach­ment points for rust and crack­ing. Spare pan­els from the wind­screen back are shared with the ZH Fairlane and not es­pe­cially dif­fi­cult to find. Front mud­guards and es­pe­cially that dis­tinc­tive grille are scarce and must be in good con­di­tion. The heavy doors sag on their hinges and can be dif­fi­cult to close. LTDs that have been used for heavy tow­ing can stretch, so look for in­con­sis­tent or en­larged gaps between the rear doors and quarter panel and around the bootlid. Cor­rect-pat­tern vinyl for Town Car roof cov­er­ing is al­most un­ob­tain­able.
