the one on the right is also an LTD... 1978 (only?) Ford LTD Landau.

Don't know where that "1978 only" comes from. Do you know something we don't?

Also, what's with that "BMC" tag?

the BMC tag is the "company" in the movie... hence the modified grilles and little "tweaks" on so many of these newly added vehicles.

i definitely have no insider information on these, and in fact i'd wager that you know these much better than i do.

the first Landau example that i found in a VERY quick search (standard catalog) for the 1978 model year had the rear skirts, and the Landau example that i found (also standard catalog) for 1977 had open rear wheel wells. that was what sparked the thought, but also why i was sure to leave the year as a question, as i know that the body style was certainly offered earlier. i just found a Landau example in the 1975 brochure with the same skirts though, so it would seem that both of these could possibly be from the full 1975-78 range.

the cars in the showroom segment of the movie show "1976" roof signage, so if they're to be trusted...

OK. Just wanted to be sure you did not have specific info I didn't.

As I have posted in other LTD threads, the '78's (and equivalent '78 Grand Marquis) can be id'ed from the front by their wider under-bumper rubber spoilers. However, I know of no way at all to differentiate the 4 years at the rear.

thank you... i was sure that someone could clarify it, and if nobody had, i would have tried to narrow it down ~ or broaden it, actually, in this case ~ myself a bit later.

:p

But '77/'78 owing to vinyl roof style.
