Continental Mark V Collector Series
49K ORG. MILES, MATCH. #'S, 400 V8, AUTO, SUNROOF, LOADED, 4 WHL DISCS, CLEAN!!
There's nothing quite like a big American luxury car of the '70s. They were unlike anything that came before, or since, and the biggest most luxurious of them all had to be the Lincoln Continental. This particular Mark V, with just over 48,000 original miles, is perhaps the most sheetmetal per dollar you'll find anywhere.
Short of 20 feet long, this blue 1979 Lincoln Continental will easily have everyone's head's turning. Not only because of its size, but also because it demands attention due to the excellent paint, the gold grille, and the gleaming bumpers. The car is covered in its factory correct color, and the paint has recently been wet sanded and buffed so it looks practically new. The more square shape of the car is nicely outlined with bright trim and framed in fresh chrome bumpers. The vinyl top and tire cover are in fantastic condition and really helps to complete the look. Optioned out, including a working factory sunroof, this Continental was easily ahead of its time.
The blue cloth interior appears new and is quite plush, and perfectly matches the exterior as it screams luxury. The cleanliness of the interior follows through from the door panels, to the carpets, and up to the headliner. For being a car from 1979, the amount of amenities is plentiful, and is appreciated today. This Lincoln was again, simply ahead of its time, with factory power windows and locks, cruise control, 8-track player, sunroof, and even the Quadraphonic 4 speaker system also works to this day. The wood grain dash completes the rich feel, and is the perfect contrast to the lavish seats, making both stand out in their own ways. Even the trunk is lined in the comfy carpet, and shows that the luxuriousness on the inside extends from the dash all the way through the trunk.
Under the hood is the numbers matching 400 cubic inch V8. With less than 49,000 miles, the 400ci Cleveland power plant is extremely clean and looks right at home in the engine bay. Bolted to the 400ci mill is a smooth 3-speed automatic. Stopping power surprisingly comes courtesy of four wheel disc brakes, a nice touch, and a must have for a vehicle this large. In front of those brakes, the factory 15" hurricane rims have been wrapped in like new rubber. Under this car you will find a fully sorted chassis with great floor plans with no hints of rust.
The Mark V was only produced for 3 model years, but it quickly became one of the most popular Lincolns vehicles, selling an average of 75,000 models each year. When you look at this incredible survivor, it's easy to see why. If you are a fan of the '70s American luxury cars, it doesn't get much better than this. Call today!
