1998 Ford Mustang, 6 cyl.  Looks cool, and at 237K miles now, mine still gets 20 mpg., as I drive it to and back from work everyday.  Still passes smog in CA.  Can't remember the last major repair.

THAT was a well-made American car.

Where is your head Ruben?

It's simply based on the # of units sold for those specific years. It has nothing to do with a need for research, just a check of the sales figures. Geez man!

Will Austin, my V8 Impalas, and my other GM vehicles built on that same platform, deliver over 25mpg highway cruising at 80mph, seat 6 adults, are more comfortable than a La-Z Boy, and look great in this person's opinion.  Find me a 4 banger econobox that will do that.  And BTW, was the word for which you were looking mediocrity?

@Texa Gurl & Rigley Neff,

The "LTD" in question is actually an "LTD II."  The one pictured is obviously the 4-door model but they actually made a 2-door that was the successor to the Ford "Elite" which was the successor to the Ford Grand Torino.

What ruined Detroit was spending 50 years fighting their Union workers instead of designing great automobiles. They seem to have learned their lesson.

The 1977 LTD pictured is actually an LTD II.  Both models were available in that year.  Someone at MSN Autos missed this :)

Very misleading teaser line!  Shouldn't be "10 American Made Cars That Sell",  should say "10 American Cars That SOLD" !!

The car in the photo listed as an LTD is not. It is an LTD II. Totally different from the LTD. The LTD II was manufactured from 1977 through 1979. It is a mid size car, not full size like the LTD. The LTD II, Thunderbird, and Mercury Cougar from 1977 through '79 were on the same chassis as the Ford Torino/ Mercury Montego rode on from 1972-1976. Great cars with outstanding quality. The article does spell GALAXIE correctly, as Ford nameplates spelled it with ie ending as opposed to y ending.

Rigley Neff, have you ever peed on a 1977 LTD Landau?  I think this is one.  The 1977 T-Bird actually had 2 little windows.  We'll forgive you since you can't see above the fenders.
