1978 Lincoln Mark Series Mark V Diamond Jubilee

I am selling my Lincoln Mark V Diamond Jubilee Edition. I have owned it since Oct 7th 2012. I bought it in California where it spent its entire life until I brought it to Colorado. I bought it with 78,000 miles and now it has 87,000 miles.(I have receipts for the car dating back to the 90'ssupporting the miles are correct, thetitlesaysmiles exempt)The miles are low for the year, but not so low one would be worried about putting miles on a mega low survivor car. I drove it from California to Colorado(whichwas 1265 mile trip) without one single issue. The car has never been driven in snow, I only take it to Lincoln meets and car shows in nice weather, the car is stored in a heated warehouse.
I had it painted shortly after I bought it in the original Diamond Blue Moon dust metallic paint color. I also had pinstripes added to match how it would come from the factory, except it is vinyl pinstripes vs. hand painted pinstripes. The Paint is beautiful and almost completely chip or scratch free. The interior is nice with minimal fading on the seats nice a bright, the back seat was preserved with backwindow tint, I didn't like the window tint and I recently removed it myself and unfortunately it still has a sticky residue from the tint on the back window. The wood trim is very nice and the center arm console is near perfect . It has its original floor mats which are still very nice. The moon roof opens and closes just fine, the power seats work, the power door locks work and the power windows work, the miles to empty gauge works. The original radio is in the car and works, it is just disconnected from the antenna because I had a hidden modern stereo installed which sounds much better than a poor quality radio from the 70's.The car has the 400ci motor(one could not order the 460 in California in 1978) The 1978 400ci has 179hp vs. the 1979's 159hp. It has plenty of power and I have raced two 460 cars in our Lincoln club and one on the YouTube "diamond in the ruff video" and I out accelerated all 3 of them withmy 400ci. Themotor is smooth and powerfuland thetransmission shifts nice and smooth. My car has the moonroof and the cb radio and the umbrella. I have a like new leather toolkit and leather owners manual cover that may come with the car depending on the selling price.
I have added NOS front parking/turn signal lights, not a scratch or chip in them, these were expensive. Also the chrome trim piece that goes along the front bumper filler piece is also NOS and nearly impossible to find, also very expensive.
Here is what I have had done to the car since I have owned it:* New white wall tires with less than 5000 miles on them
*New Paint and Pinstripes
* Brake system bleed/flush
*Power steering flush
* New U-joint
* New Idler Arm
* New outer tie rod
* New motorcraft spark plugs
* New fuel filter
* New Accellignition wires
* New MSD Distributor cap* New starter
* New starter solenoid
* New battery cables
* New valve cover gasket
* Wheel bearings re-packed
* New Alignment(goes straight down the highway) The car has been so fun to own and drive, I have bought another Lincoln and now have too many cars and I need to downsize, that's why I'm selling it. Feel free to come and look at this beautiful Diamond Jubilee in person.The shipping cost/payment is up to the buyer. I can assist in meeting a shipping company and making sure the car gets sent off to the new owner.As far as payment, I can accept cash, a certified cashiers check(that my bank can verify) orwire transfer. No PayPal. No trades and no payments.
