From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.

Classic Car Overview

Merchants Auto Group is pleased to present this original survivor 1979 Lincoln Continental Mark V featured in Wedgewood Blue for your consideration at our Cicero, Indiana showroom. This Gorgeous car represents the true end of an era in U.S. motoring. Standard on all Mark Vs are four-wheel disc brakes (continuing is the Sure-Track anti-skid brake system from the Mark IV, as an option), a Cartier embossed logoed sweep-hand clock with day/date feature, and full power accessories including Automatic Temperature Control air conditioning, power windows, six-way power drivers seat, power radio antenna, etc. Test drives, trades, and inspections welcome. Financing available in the U.S. and shipping available world wide. The 1979 Continental Mark V offered a supple ride, both from the suspension as well as the luxurious interiors. Velour was the standard available in seven different colors while leather and vinyl could be specified in one of 14 colors. Standard features inside included Twin Comfort lounge seats, a Cartier clock, and a four-speaker AM/FM clock, and power came from a 400-cid V-8 making 179 horsepower, or an optional 460-cid V-8 making 208 horsepower. Both engines were mated to a 3-speed automatic transmission. A Luxury Group option outfitted the interior with two-tone leather and vinyl, while the Majestic Luxury Group turned the Mk Vs interior into a sea of crushed velour. Lincoln also offered several special models in the Mk V, dubbed Designer Editions. These Designer Edition Marks included Cartier, Bill Blass, Givenchy, and Pucci, and each featured special plaques to authenticate them, unique colors and trim packages, and designer signatures in the opera windows. The Mk V carried over largely unchanged for 1978, and the big news was the Diamond Jubilee Edition, built to commemorate Fords 75th anniversary. The cars came in either Diamond Blue or Jubilee Gold and were outfitted differently and more luxuriously than any other Mk V, with ebony inserts, color-matched cloth seating with broadlace inserts, Tiffany-cut pile carpeting, beveled instrument panel lenses, optional an owner monogram, and much more. Most optional features on other Mk Vs were standard on the Diamond Jubilee, and the distinction added about $8,000 to the Mk Vs $12,000 price tag. Once again, the Mk V saw few changes for 1979 its last year of production before Lincoln downsized its flagship to meet stricter emissions standards. The Mk V marked the apex of Lincoln luxury and engineering, as subsequent cars became victims of stricter federal requirements, badge engineering, and shifting buying habits.
