1979 Lincoln Other

You're looking at a true American classic that has been slightly customized in a true American style. Nowhere else could you find a 1979 Lincoln Continental Mark V tailored to be such a sleek and intimidating vehicle.The Continental has always been a great American luxury car with a TON of vintage sheetmetal. The gothic Mark V was longer, ider, nd lower than its predecessors. This coupe has the great big personality of the 1970s without the drab earthtone color pallet. Its jet black paintwork is the perfect backdrop for the razor-sharp fender creases and plentiful chrome accents. The front has the Rolls-Royce style grille, nd 1970s chic flat front hidden headlights. This is accented by attractive parking light lenses that are miniature works of casting genius. Out back, he deck lid features the Continental's trademark spare tire hump/continental kit. But you already can see what really sets this Lincoln apart from any other car out there. Those huge whitewall tires with what appears to be wire wheels, ut then you get a little closer, nd you can see that those chrome kings are actually a design by Chip Foose.Step inside and see the interior you always thought a comfy Continental should have. This is a completely custom black crushed velour interior, hat not only covers every inch of the seats in the comfy cloth, ut also it's on the doors and floormats. The addition of aggressive red piping just makes every other Mark V interior look like a letdown. And the customizing didn't end there. The driver gets a Grant three-spoke steering wheel, nd everyone can enjoy modern tunes with a large AM/FM/XM/CD stereo that's iPod compatible. Of course features were not something you ever had to worry about in a Mark V. This one already came straight from the factory with power seats, ower windows, ir conditioning, lectric rear defogger, ower locks, ilt steering wheel, nd a sunroof. There is even a Cartier in-dash clock in front of the driver, o you know this is true automotive jewelry.Ford's smooth and refined 400 cubic-inch Cleveland V8 provides effortless performance in the Continental. It has good horsepower, ut the real story is the torque that's enough to pull a boat. Of course you will likely never want to tow a yacht in this beautiful big bodied car, ut it's this kind of available strength that allow you to smoothly and quickly cruise away from the stoplight. Fans of originality will love how the big blue Ford engine looks factory-fresh, nd it does show all signs of being the original powerplant. While this is the perfect car for the drive-in (after all, t's more comfortable than any movie theater seat), here's much more to this Mark V. It has a three-speed C6 automatic transmission, ower steering, nd disc brakes at all four wheels. This means you can ride in comfort to car shows as far away as you want.This Continental Mark IV has all the right custom touches, ut all the original pieces you want are still with this all-day cruiser, ven the owner's manual. It's everything you love about the 70s without having to give up modern comfort. Call today!
