1978 Lincoln Mark V Cartier Edition

All the great big personality of the 1970s in a terrifically coordinated package. This 1978 Lincoln Continental Mark V is a low-mileage time capsule than offers distinction, luxury, 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. With 3,741 on the odometer, it has averages less than 100 miles annually. The white paint is original to the car, and it still has a showroom level of shine. Lasting four decades with this outstanding luster means a lifetime of great care and little exposure to the elements. So, the kind of luxury you expected from Lincoln in '74 remains today. The opulence is also in the details, like the opera window in the middle of the half vinyl roof. And the way that Wedgewood Blue vinyl coordinates with the protective rubber strip and pinstriping is a masterstroke. Inside, the seating complements the exterior perfectly. The blue is a nice matching shade for the accessory color. Plus, the doors, dash, headliner, and even the steering wheel continue this great blue theme. It's joined by some tasteful wood trim to really give it a premium atmosphere. All of it is presented in like-new condition, because the low odometer means there was very little seat time. The interior is large enough to comfortably seat six people, and up front you can fold down the armrests for the choice of independent luxury. As expected with a true premium cruiser, this one comes with power everything – power windows, power door locks, and power front seats. Other great comfort features in this classic include cruise control, the original AM/FM stereo, and cold-blowing factory air conditioning. 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 original, that's a good thing. It means this is a survivor that's already built for unleaded gasoline. Plus, the big V8 has the torque that keeps this smooth and confident everywhere from stoplights to highway cruising. Fans of originality will love how the big blue Ford engine looks as factory-fresh as the exterior of this coupe. In fact, as you look over all the details, there are so many original components that you even still see the factory decals. But while this may be the lowest mileage vintage Mark V you'll ever see, we bet you won't be able to resist adding to the odometer. After all, this has great cruising 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, time capsule cars are exceptionally rare. So to have an expensive luxury machine with survivor status, well then, that's is a true show-stopper. You know there's nothing else like this one, so don't miss out. Call today!!!
