Help me find a bug deflector

June 1, 2010 | By Richard Prince


I am the second owner of an original 1975 LTD in all-original condition. I grew up seeing these and other “land boats” with bug deflectors attached to the fronts. J.C. Whitney sold them for some time. I would like to know if anyone still offers these. A blue or smoke-tinted deflector would be perfect!


There are plenty of companies that make and sell bug deflectors but oddly enough nobody makes one specifically configured for your 1975 LTD. If you’re handy and patient it would not be a monumental task to simply make one yourself. In the alternative, check out the Internet and consider running some want ads. I’d hazard a guess that there are some originals out there but low value and lack of demand discourage those who possess them from going to the trouble and expense of advertising them for sale. Let the world know you want one and perhaps someone will respond.
