Classic Car Overview

Its hard not to get excited about a nicely-priced example of classic American luxury, but this 1979 Lincoln Continental Mark V has far more going for it than just value. With its original big V8 under the hood, factory white paint, and A/C still blowing cold, this is a great example of a luxurious survivor. This two-owner, 7,717 mile Mark V is the lowest mileage example weve ever seen, and boy are we impressed. The Continental has always been a great American luxury car with a TON of vintage sheetmetal. The gothic Mark V was longer, wider, and lower than its predecessors. This coupe has the great big personality of the 1970s without the drab earthtone color pallet. Its sophisticated original white paintwork is the perfect backdrop for the razor-sharp fender creases and plentiful chrome accents. The front has the Rolls-Royce style grille, and 1970s chic flat front hidden headlights. This is accented by attractive parking light lenses that are miniature works of casting genius. Out back, the deck lid features the Continentals trademark spare tire hump/continental kit. But what really makes this Mark V stand above the others are all the great factory features that remain on the car today. From the red half-vinyl roof with opera window, to the delicate red pinstriping, to the turbine-style wheels it all feels like 1979 all over again. The right person ordered this coupe, because a red interior is always a great choice for these vehicles. It has sophisticated tone with just enough flash not to be ostentatious and that was the whole point of the Mark V line. The deep wine color covers everything, including the seats, carpeting, steering wheel and dash. While the car is survivor quality, the entire interior is superbly preserved. The seats, carpet, dash, trim, gauges, etc. are all in fantastic condition, further proof that this Lincoln was a garage queen its entire life. The pillow-top seats have that feeling of true cruising luxury, and you have the choice to seat six total, or fold down the front armrest to give you true individual luxury. As expected from a vehicle of this caliber, there are plenty of factory luxuries, including power seats, power locks, power windows, cruise control, and the factory air conditioning thats blowing nice and cold. There is even a Cartier in-dash clock in front of the driver (and it works!), so you know this is true automotive jewelry. Everything is as Lincoln intended, and in excellent condition. Fords smooth and refined 400 cubic-inch Cleveland V8 provides effortless performance in the Continental. It has good horsepower, but the real story is the torque thats enough to pull a boat. Of course, you will likely never want to tow a yacht in this beautiful big bodied car, but its this kind of available strength that allow you to smoothly and quickly cruise away from the stoplight. And because the car has been so original so far, it should be no surprise that this is the numbers-matching powerplant. While its the perfect car for the drive-in (after all, its more comfortable than any movie theater seat), theres much more to this Mark V. It has a three-speed C6 automatic transmission, power steering, and disc brakes at all four wheels. This means you can ride in comfort to car shows as far away as you want. Incredibly original and preserved, vintage luxury, and a value price if youre quick enough to grab this deal, youll see this Continental Mark V offers everything you want in one extra-long coupe.
