Does anyone have access to the Ford commercial made for the release of the Landau? It was on TV at the time in the early 70's. It was made down Cape Schank way (south east of Melbourne) and had someone repelling down the cliff face in sillouette towards the end. That someone was me. To satisfy my curiosity I occasionally do a search in case it's found its way onto the internet but no luck to date.

Just went through this whole thread looking for pics of Landaus with C4 Chamois Leather and pictures.

Most of them were Parchment, Black , and Saddle

A couple of whites but no C4 Chamois :(

Was a great 30 mins though!!!!!!

Winabbey, I just had a look on youtube, but no luck.
I did see this video of a Landau in Florida. I have a mate in Florida, who ships me cars. He has a nice HK Bathurst Monaro there, I should ask him to keep an eye out.

I took the photo of the engine bay. it needs a general tidy up and i'm on the look out for a replacement preslite wiper washer motor and need to replace the heater tap which the previous owner did a 'work around' on.

the photos of the car are courtesy of the previous owner as I haven't had a chance even to wash it since the drive down from Sydney.

Hang on a minute Landau girl

You didnt buy Kim N's Landau from Sydney did you?

The wheels look the same

Pics from 2005 attached




That is a GREAT example either way

PS: You need one of these reproduction badges to replace teh FC or FD LTD badge on your boot lock cover

Spoek to him once by chance as I rang about an AU Fairlane V8 he had for sale about 3 months ago

He said he had a Landau as well and said it was black....I put 2 and 2 together and asked if it was the one that used to have a boot rack as I had seen pictures of it before. I have a habit of bumping into Landau ppl.....

Small world!

EDIT:



Pics of Landau repro badge on bottom right of pic above. it is pictures next to an original insert.

Will have to call the mystery member and inform him of the Coupe Anniversary

As long as this car isnt parked near mine we will be fine. Otherwise I will kick myself for spending so much $$$ on a Tropic Gold Landau......

Now I know how to use photobucket, here is my old Landau, I had to sell it to get the Superbird. (Bosses orders).
JG70NG29421K. 1973 model. Just looking at the old rego papers, it was in the missus name too.
Never seen it since the day it left my driveway?




You can't really see it, but the vinyl roof chrome moulds were not Landau, but when I sold the car, I had bought a genuine set and gave them to the new owner. They were a bit rusty, wonder if he still has them?
