1978 Lincoln Mark Series MARK V DIAMOND JUBILEE

BEAUTIFUL 1978 LINCOLN MARK V DIAMOND JUBILEECOLLECTOR EDITION. 460 4BBL V-8. GARAGE KEPT, 1 OWNER CAR (UNTILDECEMBER 2015WHEN I PURCHASED IT).

NEW VOGUE TIRES, BRAKE PADS & ROTORS, BATTERY & FULL FRONT TO REAR DUAL EXHAUST (TO REPLACE THE ORIGINAL SINGLE STYLE EXHAUST).

I PURCHASED THIS BEAUTY LAST DECEMBER FROM THE ORIGINAL OWNERS. THEY BOUGHT IT BRAND NEW IN JANUARY OF 1979. I MADE A COPY OF THE ORIGINAL TITLE BEFORE TRANSFERING IT INTO MY NAME. THIS CAR WAS NEVER USED AS A DAILY DRIVER. THEY ONLY DROVE IT ON WEEKENDS/VACATIONS FOR PLEASURE USE ONLY. BACK AND FORTH TO THEIR SUMMER HOME. WHICH WAS ABOUT 200 MILES FROM THEIR HOUSE. NEVER DRIVEN IN THE WINTERS. THEN FOR THE LAST 10 YEARS IT WAS STORED AT THEIR SUMMER HOME. LAST REGISTERED IN 2007 PRIOR TO MY PURCHASE.

WHEN I BOUGHTTHE CAR.IT NEEDED A NEW BATTERY, TIRES HAD FLAT SPOTS FROM SITTING & THE EXHAUST HAD SOME PINE HOLES & NEEDED TO BE REPLACED. AS MENTIONED EARLIER.. IHAD ALL OF THIS DONE. PLUS NEW SPARK PLUGS AND AN OIL CHANGE. THE CAR RUNS AND DRIVES EXCELLENT. IT FEELS LIKE A BOAT GOING DOWN THE ROAD. THE ONLY THING IT MAY NEED IS A CARB ADJUSTENT. IS HAS A SLIGHT SHAKE AT IDLE. WHICH MAY BE FROM A CHANGE IN BACK PRESSURE FROM SINGLE EXHAUST TO DUAL EXHAUST. BUT IT IS NOT AN ISSUE. I'VE BEEN DRIVING IT A LOT SINCE THE WEATHER HAS GOTTEN NICER.

THE LAST YEAR OF THE 460 BIG BLOCK IN THE MARK SERIES! ENGINE RUNS STRONG! TRANS SHIFTS SMOOTH! 111k ORIGINAL MILES. I'VE PUT LESS THAN 400 MILES ON IT.

THE BODY AND PAINT IS BEAUTIFUL. MOST OF THE PAINT IS ORIGINAL INCLUDING THE FACTORY PAINTED PINSTRIPES & INTIALS EMBLEMS ON EACH DOOR. I HAD A COUPLE OF SMALL AREAS OF SURFACE RUST REPAIRED IN THE LOWER 1/4's. IT WAS VERY MINOR & UNDER THE LOWER MOLDINGS. IT CAME OUT VERY NICE. THERE IS SOME MINOR FADING ON THE HOOD & DECK LID. FLOOR & FRAME ARE ROCK SOLID. ALL CHROME AND MOLDINGS ARE VERY NICE.

THE INTERIOR ALSO IS BEAUTIFUL. NO RIPS OR TEARS. THIS CAR WAS VERY WELL CARED FOR.

MINOR THINGS THAT THE NEW OWNER MAY WANT TO ADDRESS:

1) PASSENEGER POWER SEAT ENGAGES WHEN THE FWD/BACK SWITCH IS USED. BUT DOES NOT MOVE. HOWEVER THE TILT DOES WORK.

2) POWER ANTENNA WILL MOVE DOWN BUT NOT UP. I'M GUESSING IT'S THE SWITCH.

3) A/C BLOWS COOL, BUT NOT ICE COLD. STILL HAS ORIGINAL R-12. WILL NEED TO BE RETROFIT TO R-134 FREON.

4) CARB ADJUSTMENT/DYNO TUNE TO THE NEW DUAL EXHAUST. RUNS A LITTLE ROUGH WHEN FIRST STARTED.

5) POWER SUNROOF DOES NOT WORK. I'M NOT SURE IF IT IS THE MOTOR OR SWITCH.

NADA VALUE FOR A #2 DIAMOND JUBILEE IS OVER $28K. #3 IS OVER $11K. I WOULD CONSIDER THIS CAR TO BE MUCH CLOSER TO A #2 THAN A #3. SO I'VE PRICED IT VERY FAIR TO SELL. I JUST HAVE TOO MANY CARS & NOT ENOUGH SPACE OR TIME FOR ALL OF THEM. PLUS I RECENTLY BOUGHT A CONVERTIBLE FOR THE SUMMER. SO SOMEBODY IS GOING TO GET A GREAT DEAL ON A BEAUTIFUL, COLLECTABLE DIAMOND JUBILEE!

IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS. FEEL FREE TO EMAIL ME. SERIOUS BUYERS ONLY PLEASE! NO LOW BALL OFFERS!! THIS CAR IS WORTH MORE THAN I'M ASKING FOR IT.

PLEASE VIEW THE VIDEO BELOW. THE MICROPHONE ON MY CAMERA/VIDEO RECORDER IS VERY SENSITIVE. SO THE CAR MAY SEEM A BIT LOUDER THAN IT REALLY IS.

THANK YOU FOR VIEWING MY LISTING.
