When it comes to vintage automobiles, it is a fact that original vehicles from California and the West Coast of the United States have always been the most desirable the world over for many reasons; the mild climate and the lack of exposure to the elements of nature that cause things like rust also many automotive trends started in California. The automobile is the perfect technological symbol of American culture, a tangible expression of our quest to level space, time, and class and a reflection of our relentless mobility, social and otherwise. You see automobiles advertised the world over described as California cars because at some point they were in California or drove through California.

Up for sale is a beautiful 1975 Lincoln Mark IV. This is a car that has spent its whole life residing in the mild climate of the San Francisco bay area. This car was bought new in Oakland, CA and was only used as a primary transportation to commute 200 miles to the cabin in Lake Tahoe,CA. By 1980 the car was retired from use by the family and parked inside along with all of the other vehicles in the collection. The Lincoln Mark series was an iconic symbol of status in the seventies. The Mark IV was special for being one of the last of the big American coupes from an era when size mattered. This long brown coupe represents 1975 well, and is a blast from the past.

Cosmetically this car is in good shape for a 44 year old Lincoln. The body is straightand has no rust. The paint shines and looks great. The chrome trim, emblems and hubcaps are all in good shape with no pitting or dings. All the glass is original and in good shape. The original top looks great and has no rips. All the lights are working and in good shape.

The headliner is flawless and does not hang or have any rips, testament to being stored inside in a climate controlled environment.

The C-6 transmission shifts smooth in all gears as well as reverse. There are no odd noises coming from the motor, transmission or rear end. The brakes work great as they should, the car will need some new shocks at some point but is very much drive able.
