Saw this one a couple of weeks ago. A friend bought a 4-door '68 Ford Custom ex-company car back in '76 - Canadian National Railways orange with a 240-CID inline-6, 3-on-the-tree MT, and armstrong steering. It's interesting to me how similar the two cars look (at least in my memory) despite the difference in trim levels. Same basic body shape, although of course the Custom did not have the hideaway headlights or the vinyl roof. I'm pretty sure this minty LTD does not have the six-banger either. 302? 351W or C? 390? Note how the rear side reflectors met the letter of the law for the '68 model year. GM and Chrysler used actual marker lights, as did Ford the next year.
