Classic Car Overview

With its preserved vintage style, true luxury features (including A/C,) and big V8 power, this 1974 Lincoln Continental Mark IV continues to represent the era of awesome and elegant classic cruisers. The affordable price is just the cherry on top. The Continental Mark IV was the bridge between two styling eras. The previous generation established a flowing elegance, and this one continues that with the flared fenders, smooth kick-up behind the rear door, and taillights that stylishly wrap around the body. But the 1970s would be a more forceful period, and this also ushered in a more commanding style. That means sharper body lines, bigger chrome bumpers, and a roof pillar so large that you got an opera window. Plus, it always continued the right traditions, like the Rolls-Royce inspired grille, long hood, and a trunk built to look like there was a namesake continental kit on the rear. It all makes the Mark IV a distinct and stylish coupe - especially on this example. The Pastel Lime shows all the right signs of being the original application. And the green vinyl roof and matching pinstripe make for a great color package to represent a 1970s machine like this. So its nice to see an exceptional level of preservation with crisp and straight body panels. In fact, were told this one was tucked away and taken off the road for years. So that helps with the time capsule status and leads us to believe the odometer reflects the full actual mileage. But as youll see from the list of recent investments, this one is also ready to be a great classic cruiser today. The pillow-top style of the velour interior is pure classic luxury, and this has been preserved so nicely that youll love to show it all off. The details really are beautiful, right down to the working dome lights and the rear ashtray that is set in the front door (just to remind you how far the doors stretched!) And the famous Cartier clock was recently replaced with a correct unit just for that added touch of elegance. The interior is large enough to comfortably seat six people, or both rows can fold down the armrests for four independent luxury capsules. And no matter how many people are along for the ride, the driver always takes priority. Thats why the front seats individually power adjust. Theres a tilt steering column, and its an easy reach to features like power windows, power locks, the Philco AM/FM stereo with classic 8-track, and cold-blowing factory air conditioning. Fords big 460 cubic-inch V8 was the ideal torque-filled powerhouse for a long cruiser like this. Fans of originality will love how the big blue Ford engine looks so preserved, right down to the decals. But as you dig a little deeper, youll see fresh components all added within about the last year. This includes essentials, like a new heater core, new belts, new wires, and a fresh tune-up including major fluids changed. This V8 fires up eagerly as it inhales deeply with the four-barrel carburetor with a new electric choke. Features like the supple ride, new Bilstein shocks, and cruise control make it a true boulevard machine. And the three-speed automatic transmission, new whitewall tires, power steering, power brakes with discs up front make it easy to enjoy near or far. The sale comes complete with good paperwork like the factory buildsheet, owners manual, and a Marti Report. Its all about being a true cruiser with great preservation and presentation. Call now!
