That 2-tone green looks awesome on that LTD II!

Yeah, It's a Hybrid...It burns gas and tires.

No matter how good she looks, somebody, somewhere, is tired of her sh*t.

Thanks guys I've been trying to post more pictures but my iPad is being goofy. All the stripes are painted on and clear coated in so that there are no tape lines like it originally had. My dad is the original owner of the car bout it new in June 79. According to the marti report there were only 192 two tone green ltds in 79

Your beautiful car has been stuck in my head since I first read this post. I am currently trying to decide if I want to do some expensive repairs to the trim and vinyl on my car or just convert it to my favorite look for the LTD II. I have not seen one of these in person in years, and was wondering if I could get some more info or pics of how the paint lays out for the two colors. I'm thinking about doing this in a metallic orange or copper, and black.
