Classic Car Overview

With a big personality and a big V8 to back it up, this 1978 Lincoln Continental Mark V owns the road with its imposing style and executive-level comfort. And the way this retains the right vintage style tells you it has been cared for correctly over the decades. We often think of drab earth-tone colors when it comes to 1970s machines, but this luxury Lincoln has a terrific sense of timeless style. It starts with the factory-correct white paint. It was resprayed later in life to make sure the coverage remains comprehensive. It currently has the right touch of aged-in style for those who want to look like a glossy survivor, or just one comprehensive detail should unlock a whole new wow factor. The current luster in the finish already shows off the crisp lines and well-fitting panels of this respected coupe. Theres also opulence in the details, like the Rolls-Royce inspired grille, classic fender louver trim, hidden headlights, and intricate corner lights. We love the look of the opera window in the middle of the half vinyl roof. And the way that blue vinyl top coordinates with the pinstriping is a masterstroke. The Wedgewood Blue interior complements the exterior blue accents perfectly. The doors, dash, headliner, and plush velour upholstery continue the well-respected feeling of this classic Lincoln. Theres plenty of space to spread out, and plenty of desirable features, including power windows and power locks. You get a dual-spoke tilt steering wheel with cruise control buttons and a wood-like trim that matches the dash. The layout is a reminder that this is a personal luxury machine, and so all the controls are centered around the driver. So you get an easy view to cool vintage features like the AM/FM 8-track stereo and the Lincolns hallmark Cartier clock. Plus, there was a solid investment in the air conditioner within the last few years to make sure its blowing nice and cold. Under the hood is the numbers-matching 460 cubic-inch V8. This is important to have, because this was the final year for the biggest of big blocks. It has a time capsule kind of style, right down to the factory decals. But on this well-respected coupe you can also tell it has received the right care over the years. Thats why the big V8 fires up readily and runs well. This has the torque that keeps this smooth and confident everywhere from stoplights to highway cruising. And it remains a luxury driver with Lincolns famously supple ride, power steering, a three-speed automatic transmission, and the confident stopping of four-wheel power disc brakes. The sale comes with terrific paperwork, including the factory buildsheet, title documentation, maintenance records, service manuals, and the dealer invoice showing it sold new out of Alabama all those decades ago. Its all part of a well-presented and well-respected vintage package. So dont miss this deal, call today!
