19. Ford Landau
Ford presented the Landau in 1971 as the biggest and most expensive car the company sold in Brazil. However, the Landau was basically an upscale mid-’60s Ford Galaxie. They produced it until 1983 and made few changes during that time. The Landau was a common car with government officials.
Under the hood was a 302 V8 engine the mated with a three-speed automatic or manual gearbox. Interestingly enough, in the late ‘70s, Ford Brazil produced several thousand Landau models they modified to run on alcohol rather than gasoline due to the oil crisis. They built over 77, 000 Landaus during its 12-year production run.
