The seller opens with this: “Also will barter for new siding on my colonial house or new roof shingles installed on my roof or landscaping work worth about value I am selling car.”
That aside, I love several things about this car and ad. First, “Fort Lauderdale” edition was likely quite garish and obnoxious to begin with, based on the blue puffy top. Add to that the snow bird connection and this can’t be beat.
How do you put a value on this collector’s classic? I think it’s worth one installed 13-foot french drain (assuming no clay soil or rock) and 1,263 square feet of HardiePlank® lap siding. Roofing may just be too much.

No comment necessary.
Rear window is another classy touch.
Fancy gold badge hasn’t held up well.
Interestingly, my ’70 Mustang has the same steering wheel wrap (for now).

This is a special edition town car. I am the 2nd owner. This vehicle is a Ft. Lauderdale Edition which is where the NY Yankees practice off season. Back in 1994, this car was specially made to promote a local dealership in the area and the car was made with an all White Exterior and an all White Interior with Blue Pinstripes like the NY Yankees Uniform. This was what I was told by the prior owner.
The body is in very nice shape and the paint still shines. Has no rust and a minor dings but otherwise is very nice shape. The Landau roof is in good condition. The interior is in ok shape. The seats have cracks in them but not torn due to the heat over the years and the headliner in torn but it there and all the power windows work
The past year I installed a New Radiator, New Water Pump, New Antfreeze, New Windshield, New Wipers, New Brakes, New Battery and 2 New Wheel cylinders.The Engine purrs like a kitten and runs beautiful. The transmission shifts perfectly and is solid. The exhaust has no leaks and is very quiet. Cruise control works perfect and the power antenna and factory radio work too.
The tires on it are practically new and I will throw in a Complete Set of 4 NEW STUDDED SNOW TIRES WITH RIMS ( PAID $350, OCT of 2013) for freeThe AC is ICE COLD and the HEAT is HOT.
The check engine light is on but everything seems to work. Probably a sensor for something but didn’t fix and the front passenger door doesn’t open from the outside, opens from inside only. As far is MPG I honestly got about 25MPG on Highway and about 21MPG locally. Regular gas. Pretty good for a car like this.
The tires on have about 90% tread remaining and I will throw in a Complete Set of 4 NEW STUDDED SNOW TIRES WITH RIMS for free. They have close to 95% tread remaining
Selling because I don’t use anymore to commute to the city in the winter back and forth since I don’t work in NYC anymore but when I did, and put the STUDDED SNOWS on, honestly the car handled like my 4×4 Nissan Armada in the snow or ice. It was great and the stickers and striping can be removed if you dont like.
