Classic Car Overview

This 1979 Lincoln Continental Town Coupe is a rare offering with the size and formal style of the sedan, but it delivers it in an even more personal two-door package. And this V8 Lincoln has such a clean and correct time capsule style that youll even be looking on eBay for 8-track cartridges to complete the retro-cool cruiser feel. You might have a few Lincoln coupes from 1979, but those will usually be Mark V cars. This is the plusher and far rarer Town Coupe. These cars look especially nice because they take the regal hidden headlights and square-jaw lines of the Continental sedan and apply them to a more personal luxury vehicle. It makes for an exclusive classic of true luxurious classics, and so its nice to have an example like this thats so distinctly vintage. The color holds close to 1979s Diamond Blue. The respray has the right amount of maturity you want on a classic like this, and so do pieces like the trim and color-coordinated vinyl roof. This helps tell the story of a coupe that spent over 25 years in storage. It has been properly resurrected to remain a strong cruiser, but the fit of everything from the big doors to the small headlight covers tell the story of a coupe that has seen less use and wear. And the details remain impressive everywhere, from the smooth wheel cover to the golden insignia inlay in the quarter windows. Open the door, and youll see the luxury that could only come from the 1970s. The light blue velour seats are exceptionally nice, with the pillow top design is just as comfy as it looks. There are even armrests, front & rear, for true individual luxury. Vintage elegance is all about the atmosphere it creates. So you have plenty of matching wood-like trim, the front seats individually power adjust, and there are the nice factory extras like cruise control, the AM/FM 8-track stereo, a tilt steering column, power locks, and power windows. The Cartier clock is still gleaming in the dash, and the courtesy lights are working. The only upgrades youll find are subtle ones, like upgraded air conditioning with newer components and R134a refrigerant. So, your overall impression will be a classic luxury Lincoln that retains a premium time capsule atmosphere. Under the hood is Fords 400 cubic-inch V8, and this was the right-sized motor for its time. It was an era when car companies were getting their power zapped, but these mighty Cleveland engines still gave you the kind of torque that people put trailer hitches on their Continentals. This example looks clean, honest, and maintained. And the way it fires up and runs reaffirms that this was resurrected from its slumber correctly and has seen quality care. Lincoln paid close attention to making this a terrific cruiser when new, so it remains effortless today. This is due to the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and front discs. This rare Town Coupe has the smooth and supple ride you want in a classic boulevard machine. And not only does it cruise comfortably near or far, but this one also has a bit of a barn find story to tell everywhere you go. This is a lot of distinction for a small price. Call now!
