Hi Simon,

Its a public forum so technically, everyone has access to it! Most of us are not worried in the slightest about sharing this sort of info as there is precious little that anyone can do with it anyway. Naturally you do not have to post anything that you are not comfortable with.

Would love to see some pics of your restored Landau too!

Off topic, move it if you wish, but I thought here was the best place to post.

There is a Landau horn pad on Ebay ATM, with a Puma emblem on it.
Any ideas whatg that signifies? I can't remember what my Dads one had on it, I assumed they had the Coat of Arms, like the LTD's.

The early Landaus had a steering pad that was from the American Ford Cougar - so it's a Cougar not a Puma

How do I know if it originally had a vinal roof? What would colour E have been. Car is currently white.

Welcome aboard and great to see another Landau here...post some pics of it in a separate thread! I can't find my paint codes atm so someone else might tell you what E was but to answer your question, all Landaus had vinyl roofs- they shared a specific twill pattern with the LTD's- some will have had it removed but all came with it as standard. Colours ranged through blue,green,brown,white and black.
Your trim code is saddle (beige cream)
What state do you live in? You'll see plenty of helpful info here to aid you on your resto- getting the matching numbers engine would be brilliant whilst difficult but there is a site that locates listed cleveland blocks- again, someone here may be able to point you in the direction of it.

Cheers, Jamie

Hi all. I'm another new bloke to the forum. I'm also new to the Ford scene.
Been a Holden man all my life but I have always like the Ford coupes.
I have a 1973 Landau, details as follows:
JG70NC22747K
Eng T
Trans B
Trim P (Parchment)
Paint 4 (Deep Ivy)
Roof ? Vinyl has been removed.Unsure of original colour.
Plated 9/73
Matching Numbers
Car has no rego and was purchased partly dismantled. The car is missing some items but I hope to pick these up along the way.
The car needs a total rebuild/restoration.

Thanks auslandau.
I've been looking at this forum for a while now and thought it time to join.
I'm looking forward to getting to know all you other Landau blokes.
I'll post up a few pics of my car when I get a chance.
Where on the tags does it tell you the roof colour. I've looked on my tags and can't see it listed.

It should be on a tag 'wired' to the radiator support panel.

We found 'the tag' when we pulled our Landau to bits but whatever had been written/embedded whatever on it was long gone. Cannot make anything out on it at all. If you cannot find your tag, or if like ours it is stuffed, it does tell you on the Ford old vehicle report. You just need to ring Ford on 13FORD and ask to do an old vehicle report - have the VIN number there. No charge if they just read it out over the phone (usually takes a couple of hours for them to ring you back), however if you want it in writing you need to email/fax a copy of your rego or some other proof of ownership to Ford and they will then post you out the letter with all the details. Our letter said option 15 - Vinyl Roof, Mandatory White (what does the Mandatory mean no idea - maybe just a name for the shade of white or something...)

cheers Lisa

Literally means that all LTD/Landau's must have the vinyl roof fitted. That is, you could not have it as a delete option.

And yes, the quality of the tags from the factory is somewhat poor. I remember mine had a crappy piece of wire tired to a very thin piece of metal (I would not even call it sheetmetal) and it was hand scribed into the soft metal. Not what you would think to be long lasting but surprisingly, after 30+ years, it still was.

Thanks for the info. I'll check the radiator support panel next time I'm working on the car.
The radiator was missing when I purchased the car, along with many other bits from the engine bay. I don't hold much hope for that tag.
I'll also try giving Ford a call.
