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

This luxurious and very special 1979 Bill Blass Edition Lincoln Continental Mark V was the essence of unconstrained American automotive opulence, conceived in a time when fuel economy and space efficiency were the concerns of lesser cars. The Mark V is a huge piece of machinery, albeit a desirable one, in terms of potential value. It is the last of a breed and has sufficient quality and style to assure eventual classic status. It is entirely likely that the owners of such cars will discover that they have a piece of collectible automotive machinery. Experts from Motor Trend, April 1980 say that another automotive era ended in 1979, and summed it up by calling the 79 Continental the last traditionally full-sized American car. The hardware of the matter is that the car is one of the largest mass-produced passenger cars ever to roll off an assembly line. With an overall length of 230.3 inches, a wheelbase of 120.3 inches, and a curb weight of 4,763 pounds, it is a dinosaur, and the changing nature of the times will no longer tolerate such blatantly consumptive machines for personal transportation... The Mark V is larger and more complex than its predecessor, coming just ten inches short of 20 feet! To drive the Mark V is to be the captain of your own huge, luxurious ship. In an operational sense, the Mark V is massive, smooth and competent only in boulevard or highway applications.....What it was designed to do, it does very well. It isolates the driver and passengers from the outside world, and when youre driving, it makes you feel and makes other people think you are rich. Even with its rather straight-lined, sharp-edged styling, the car has a certain rakishness and projects the image of the driver as an elegant rogue. The Mark V is the pinnacle of 60 years of automotive definitions. Naturally, we present it to you comprehensively serviced and detailed by our highly regarded Bosch Authorized Service Facility.
