1981 Ford LTD | 2019 Barrett-Jackson Auction in Palm Beach

This is an ’81 Ford LTD that’s a replica of the Family Truckster from National Lampoon’s Vacation, and I saw it at the 2019 Barrett-Jackson Auction in Palm Beach. The Ford LTD is a range of cars that was made between 1965 and 1986. This is from the third generation, which was made between 1978 and 1982 (model years between 1979 and 1982). The engine of this one is a 4.9 Windsor V8 that produces 130 horsepower and 235 pound-feet of torque. The transmission is a 4-speed automatic. This car does 0-60 mph in 13 seconds and has a top speed of 101 mph. This LTD was auctioned off for $100,100.
