All the great big personality of the 1970s in a terrifically coordinated package. This 1978 Lincoln Continental Mark V is a time capsule than offers distinction, luxury, size, and value.

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 Continental's trademark spare tire hump/continental kit. But there's something extra special about this coupe. The Rose Beige factory paint was given a quality respray later in life. The result is a great 1970s premium hue with a truly modern shine. So the sunlight loves to highlight how straight the body panels have remained over the decades. And the coordinating vinyl roof looks excellent, too. Another reason for good care is it's believed the odometer reflects the total actual mileage, in kilometers, and so this has averaged under 1,300 kilometers annually.

The red pinstripe on the outside looks ... Please ask for the full description.

Description

BELIEVD 32K ORIG MILES, 460 V8, 3 SPD AUTO, PWR BRAKES/STEER, 4-WHEEL DISCS, A/C

All the great big personality of the 1970s in a terrifically coordinated package. This 1978 Lincoln Continental Mark V is a time capsule than offers distinction, luxury, size, and value.

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 Continental's trademark spare tire hump/continental kit. But there's something extra special about this coupe. The Rose Beige factory paint was given a quality respray later in life. The result is a great 1970s premium hue with a truly modern shine. So the sunlight loves to highlight how straight the body panels have remained over the decades. And the coordinating vinyl roof looks excellent, too. Another reason for good care is it's believed the odometer reflects the total actual mileage, in kilometers, and so this has averaged under 1,300 kilometers annually.

The red pinstripe on the outside looks subtle and premium, and if you like its style, then you'll love the coordinating deep red interior. The upholstery, doors, dash, headliner, and even the steering wheel are all both bold and sophisticated in red. It's joined by some tasteful wood trim to really give it a premium atmosphere. It all has a carefully preserved appearance, right down to the plush velour on the seats. The interior is large enough to comfortably seat six people, and up front you can fold down the armrests any time you want independent luxury. As expected with a true premium cruiser, this one comes with power everything - power windows, power locks, power remote mirror, and power front seats. Other great comfort features in this classic include cruise control, the original AM/FM stereo w/working 8-track, and provisions for factory air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) Even the special Cartier clock is still ticking away. So you know this classic is still a great place to spend some time.

Ford's smooth and refined 460 cubic inch V8 provides effortless performance in the Continental. This was in the lower compression era, and since the motor is believed to be original, that's a good thing. It means this is a survivor that's already built for unleaded gasoline. Plus, Lincoln fans know this is the final year for the big motor in the Mark V. This has the torque that keeps this smooth and confident everywhere from stoplights to highway cruising. And this one was built to enjoy the drive with features like power steering, a three-speed automatic transmission, Lincoln's famously supple ride, and the power of four-wheel disc brakes.

Complete with owner's manual, this Continental Mark V is a preserved luxury classic with a great presentation and an affordable price. An opportunity like this is seldom and fleeting, so if you want to take it home, call today!
