Classic Car Overview

ateway Classic Cars is excited to present this 1979 Lincoln Continental Mark V Bill Blass at our Milwaukee location. An elegant beauty that was so tastefully designed, that it has become an icon in the automotive world. Lincoln was born in 1917 as Fords luxury brand competing directly with Cadillac for market share in the personal luxury car segment. In 1959 the Continental was integrated into the Lincoln line up with the Continental Mark series beginning production in 1968. The Mark was marketed as a two-door model only in response to the rival Cadillac Eldorado. Among the Continentals, there were designer series versions, but the best appearance package was the Bill Blass version. This shows as a great example of how a highly packaged Lincoln set the tone for true luxury. Lincoln debuted the new 460 cubic inch V-8 along with the first Ford vehicle to be produced with anti-lock brakes in the 1968 Mark III. Our 1979 Lincoln Continental Mark V Bill Blass is a fine example of what has become one of Fords most successful line ups. At over 19 feet long, the Mark V is among one of the largest coupes ever produced. The Continental Mark V became the most successful Car in the Mark series with 228,000 units sold in its three -year run. This bright white beauty with matching interior and a contrasting white vinyl top makes quite the statement. Luxury abounds when you open the door and sit yourself down in two tone leather seats. Being pampered with options such as power windows, power seats, power locks, air conditioning, cruise control, and even a period AM/FM/8-Track radio. Under the hood is a 400 cubic inch V-8 attached to three speed automatic transmission. Such comfort features as power steering, power brakes and newer shocks all add to the luxury driving experience.
