Classic Car Overview

All the great big personality of the 1970s without the drab earthtone color pallet. This 1979 Lincoln Continental Mark V is a well-preserved cruiser that you can pick up for less than just about any other example of classic luxury around. This kind of iconic value goes quickly around here! The Continental has always been a great American luxury car with a TON of vintage sheetmetal. This style Mark V was longer, wider, and lower than its predecessors. The hood alone looks like it could have its own horizon. Luxury was a guarantee with features like the razor-sharp fender creases, Rolls-Royce style grille, and 1970s cool flat front hidden headlights. Out back, the deck lid features the Continentals trademark spare tire hump/continental kit. The white paint is believed to be original to the car, and it still has a showroom level of shine. Lasting four decades with this outstanding luster means a lifetime of great care and little exposure to the elements. So, the kind of luxury you expected from Lincoln in 79 remains today. The opulence is also in the details, like the opera window in the middle of the half vinyl roof. And the way that Wedgewood Blue vinyl coordinates with the protective rubber strip and pinstriping is a masterstroke. Inside, the leather seating complements the exterior perfectly. The blue is a nice matching shade for the accessory color. Plus, the doors, dash, and headliner continue this great blue theme. Its joined by some tasteful wood trim to really give it a premium atmosphere. The interior is large enough to comfortably seat six people, and up front you can fold down the armrests for the choice of independent luxury. As expected with a true premium cruiser, this one comes with power everything power windows, power door locks, and power front seats. And there are provisions for factory air conditioning. This one is so loaded, it even has the rare sunroof option. Fords smooth and refined 400 cubic-inch V8 provides effortless performance in the Continental. It has good horsepower, but the real story is the torque thats about 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. Fans of originality will love how the big blue Ford engine looks factory correct right down to the decals and it does show signs of being the original powerplant. While this is the perfect car for the drive-in (after all, its more comfortable than any movie theater seat,) theres much more to the Mark V. It has a three-speed C6 automatic transmission, power steering, and disc brakes at all four wheels. This means you can effortlessly ride in classic comfort near or far. Complete with owners manual, this Continental Mark V is vintage luxury in a complete package and offered at a value price. The only way youll be disappointed is if you dont act quick enough to get this classic cruiser in your garage. Call today!!!
