The Fox-based '84 Ford LTD really did handle pretty well… if you checked the boxes for all the suspension options that came on the cop version when you bought one, that is, and for some reason that bit of info doesn't get much play in this ad. This ad would have been far more entertaining had Mr. Bondurant taken the base version out for some door-handle-scraping racetrack action. Why, some madmen even autocross the Fox LTD!
Oh dear GOD!!! The last one of these things I saw was when my mom ditched hers off and got a '91 Chevy Lumina. I remember how bad the air sucked in that car especially with the red friggin vinyl seats. Hers had the 3800 motor, but I never got to hoon it. The lumina was a different story though. BTW, they did make a mercury version as well with velour interior.
