Few products from the Motor City have been as well-defined in the market as the Continental Mark IV. Produced by Fords Lincoln-Mercury division from 1972 to 1976. the Mark IV was the sleeker, flashier successor to the successful 1969-71 Mark III. A team of two designers and six modelers under the direction of veteran FoMoCo stylist Wes Dahlberg developed the Mark IVs imposing profile, which, surprisingly, was only four inches longer (and 200 lbs lighter!) than its predecessor. When Ford president Bunkie Knudsen saw it, he reportedly said, Gentlemen, that is the next Mark, do not change anything! Of course, all you hardcore Lincoln enthusiasts know this wasnt the first Continental Mark IV, as Lincoln also produced a Mark IV in 1959. But when the Mark III was introduced for 69, the Mark series roman numerals were reset, rather like a TV or movie franchise reboot. Anyway, by 1974 the Mark IV was in the third year of its five-year product cycle, so Lincoln offered a series of special trim packages to offer buyers some exclusivity. As showcased in this original Lincoln-Mercury dealer film, these included the Lipstick and Emerald green Diamond luxury groups. (L-M expanded on this theme in 1976 with its Blass, Cartier, Givency, and Pucci fashion-designer editions.) Of course, the Mark IV will be eternally remembered for its signature styling features: the faux-Rolls grille, spare tire bump, and opera windows, and all three are on prominent display here. In 1974 Lincoln introduced the Emerald green DIAMOND LUXURY GROUP. The Green Diamond cars were painted in Emerald green Diamond Flare Metallic (paint code 4y), an exclusive color to this model which made the car quite striking visually. This was topped off with an Emerald green Normande Grain vinyl roof which featured a new-for body color band around the edges. Just below the fender line, a double body side stripe in Gold ran from front to rear, matching the vinyl roof color and accenting the elegant lines of the Mark IV. Inside, soft Emerald green leather upholstery with Dark woodgrain appliques on the instrument panel, steering wheel, door trim panels, and rear side trim panels provided a nice compliment to the Emerald trim Priced at $475, the Emerald Diamond Luxury Group was the most expensive luxury group to date, attributed mostly to the additional cost of the Diamond Flare Metallic paint. Despite its availability during the entire production run, cars with this option are rare. Lincoln introduced two new Luxury Group Options for 1974 , continuing a successful marketing program started in 1973 that allowed special combinations of colors and fabrics to define a limited edition automobile, and allow buyers to own a more distinctive car. Since most of the parts necessary to create these limited editions were pulled straight from the parts shelves, the cost was very little to Lincoln, yet it allowed the Mark IV to achieve higher status in the personal luxury car marketplace. For 1974, the two new options were the Emerald green Diamond Luxury Group and the White and Red Luxury Group. The Emerald green Diamond cars were painted in Emerald green  Diamond Flare Metallic (paint code 4y ), an exclusive color to this model which made the car quite striking visually. 

This is a rare opportunity to own a very fine and unabused example of an obviously always pampered 1974 Lincoln Continental Mark IV 2 Door Hardtop Diamond Edition Coupe with believed to be only 45k original miles with absolutely no evidence or history of any rust or accidents in this striking and very rare color combination! This is a great investment thats sure to appreciate over the years for any American classic car collector of obviously any Lincoln enthusiast!
