This car is in a NO RESERVE auction on THE MARKET by Bonhams website. The auction is LIVE now. The price shown is the lower estimate.
All bidding takes place on The Market (see photos for web address), plus you will find further text, over 90 photos/video fully illustrating the car and its service history, and the ability to ask questions directly to the seller. The text below is just a brief summary of our full description.
In common with most cars from the vendor’s collection it comes to us with no history or service records.
We know its chassis number is: 1G63S213482.
We know that it entered the vendor’s collection in 2016.
We know it has Ford’s 400 cu in (6.6-litre) 2V engine.
We know the odometer currently reads 75,621 miles.
We have a sales description for the car from a St. Louis dealer. We don’t know the date, but the mileage at the time was 75,619.
It reads as follows.
“For sale in our St. Louis showroom is a 1 owner 1971 Ford LTD Sedan. This time capsule was purchased and resided in the same town its entire existence, right here in O'Fallon, IL.
Options for this 1971 Ford LTD Sedan include: AC (non-functioning), AM/FM Radio with an 8-track and cassette player adapter, cruise control, hub caps, power brakes, power steering, seat belts, cloth interior, and white wall radial tires.
Powering this LTD is the original 400 CID V8 and 3 speed automatic transmission.
This survivor has been garaged since it was purchased new, and has won awards in several car shows. The odometer reads 75,619. The entire interior: dashboard, cloth seats, carpet, and headliner have all aged very gracefully and are still in fantastic condition. An FM converter and a cassette adapter has been installed via the 8-track player which was added to the original AM radio, all of which work and function as they should. The power brakes and power steering make this long 70's sedan manageable in any environment.”
Although we haven’t tried to start or drive the car and can therefore only comment on its cosmetic state, we’d say that the above description largely still holds true and that this vehicle is in very good overall condition.
For much more description and photos see THE MARKET by Bonhams website.
