Classic Car Overview

The bright paint, road-owning size, and big V8 all remind you that the 1978 Lincoln Continental Town Car is a true classic premium cruiser. And when the presentation is both loaded and vintage, it feels like driving a luxury time capsule. The Wedgewood Blue paint is a more modern respray of the factory-correct color. Its part of an investment in making sure this has an upper-class presentation. After all, 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. This shows its regal presence with details like the coach lamps and a vinyl roof that coordinates in blue. Its all quite nice while also never being so preserved that this feels more like a museum piece than a driver. Plus, these knew how to really bring style to the streets with hidden headlights, a Rolls-Royce inspired grille, and bright wraparound bumpers. These join the sharp lines and tight body panels for a look that still earns respect today. While muscle car lovers look for triple-black, premium classic lovers will take note of the paint, roof, and interior that give you a triple-blue. Two rows of pillow-top velour seats prove that this sedan is more comfortable than some peoples living rooms. In fact, a full-size car in the 1970s means you also have more room than some peoples homes! Thats how you define classic American luxury, and so this is a sedan that family and friends will love to go for a ride. But even when youre just going solo, this Lincoln is great. Part of the Town Car package means front seats with dual folding armrests and individual power adjustment. So its a very personal drivers experience. The opulent dash is built around you with an easy reach to the power windows, cruise control, tilt steering column, remote mirror control, and cold-blowing air conditioning. And it makes sure to deliver a true vintage experience with details like the AM/FM stereo with 8-track and the full courtesy light package that greets you when the door opens. The engine bay continues the time capsule style, including the correct-displacement 400 cubic-inch powerplant. Its 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 looks great and fires up readily. It also has power steering, power brakes, front discs, and a three-speed automatic transmission. It makes for the kind of luxury that can easily take you in comfort to car shows as far away as you want. Complete with owners manual, if you love true classic American luxury, you know this is a car you need to get your hands on right now. Call today!!!
