25K ORIG MILES, EXCELLENT COND, 400 V8, AUTO, COLD A/C, LOADED, LOTS OF DOCS, A+

It's kind of hard not to fall in love with a long and luxurious surviving classic when it's at such an unbeatable price. From the 400 V8 under the hood, to the opera windows in the vinyl roof, everything you could ever ask for on this 1978 Lincoln Continental Town Car is original.

Lincoln has always been a premium nameplate, but not all of them were created equal. The Town Car trim on the Continental was the top of the line package. This optional package is where you get the details that really impress, like the opera rear windows and the half vinyl coach roof. Of course the reason why they look so good is because you're looking at a sedan that has been treated like royalty since day one. You'll be amazed at how well the factory code 52 Light Champaign has held up after nearly four decades. It's the perfect backdrop for the razor-sharp fender creases and plentiful chrome accents. And speaking of brightwork, this one has all of its pieces complete – from the big bumpers, to the little guards over the parking lights. The total package is a time capsule that makes this large Lincoln a favorite at car shows.

Open the door and you'll see the kind of luxury that could only come from the 1970s. The optional light velour seats are exceptionally nice with the pillow top design that is just as comfy as it looks. There are even armrests, front and rear, for true individual luxury. This one came straight from the factory with premium items like power seats, power windows, power locks, and air conditioning. And everything works exactly as it should in this well-preserved Town Car. But if you really want to understand the level of care that has gone into this Lincoln, just look at the dashboard. Beyond just the amazing condition of the wood paneling, this one still has its 8-track stereo in working order, and the Cartier clock is still ticking away.

With a luxury car so well preserved inside and out, you better believe it has the original motor in the engine bay. Ford's 400 cubic-inch powerplant is related to the high performance Cleveland V8s that went into legendary muscle cars. But in this larger displacement, it was refined to deliver the necessary torque to move this large sedan in quiet comfort. This has been nicely maintained so it fires up on command and shows an amazingly low 25,526 on the odometer. While this is the perfect car for the drive-in (after all, its interior is more comfortable than any movie theater seat), there's much more to this sedan. It has got power steering, front disc brakes, and a three-speed automatic transmission. This is the kind of luxury that can easily take you in comfort to car shows as far away as you want.

You'll want to show off this Lincoln, and that's why it also comes with plenty of original documentation, including the factory buildsheet, bill of sale, warranty card, and owner's manual. So yes, you've discovered a thoroughly complete survivor with the paperwork to back it up at an exceptional value price. That's why we know it won't last long in our showroom. Call today!!
