1979 Lincoln Mark Series Givenchy EditionWhen you want size, distinction, and limited edition style, it's hard to beat this 1979 Lincoln Continental Mark V Givenchy Edition. It's a low-mileage time capsule than offers vintage luxury and true value.
The Mark V was one of the most stylish cars on the road with hidden headlights, a Rolls-Royce inspired grille, etched marker lights, vents along the fenders, and the hallmark Continental curvet in the trunk. It's a true boulevard king from the crisp fenders to the turbine-style wheels. But there's something even more special about this coupe. Few people were willing to add 16% over the already expensive Mark V for the Givenchy Edition. That makes the original Crystal Blue Moondust Metallic paint a unique feature. And because this has barely averaged over 1,000 miles annually, there are signs of great care that go beyond the deep luster in the factory paint. Other notable Givenchy Edition upgrades include the pinstriping and half vinyl roof both finished in a complementary shade of darker blue. Speaking of the roof, you might have also noticed the Givenchy was the only one that covered the forward half of the roof. It brings extra attention to the hallmark opera windows that now also have Givenchy in the glass.
Inside is a well-coordinated and highly original package. The blue leather is a nice matching shade for the exterior accessory color, and all the seatbacks have the Givenchy logo stitched into them. 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. Low mileage means little seat time, and so the total presentation really impresses. The space this one provides lets you and you passengers really understand the "grand" feeling of the grand tour. And there are great features to keep them feeling comfortable, like power windows, power locks, an AM/FM/cassette stereo, and cold-blowing air conditioning. But even when you're just going solo, this special edition Lincoln is a great cruiser. You have the individual comfort of a fold-down armrest and power driver's seat. The steering wheel has the cruise control buttons at your fingertips, and dash is built around you. There's even the famous Cartier in-dash clock in front of the driver, just to remind you that this is true automotive jewelry.
Under the hood is the numbers-matching 400 cubic-inch V8. It has the look of a well-respected clean originality, right down to the decals. Even the carburetor was rebuilt to ensure drive-ability. That means this one knows how to retain its proper Lincoln smoothness. Not only did they give you a torque-filled motor, but also it was part of a total package that was designed to effortlessly enjoy the road. That's why you have the original three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and a ride that floats down the road. Plus, these later Mark Vs even came standard with four-wheel power disc brakes for superior stopping power.
Complete with owner's manual, this survivor-grade Continental Mark V Givenchy Edition is a rare classic with low miles and an exceptionally affordable price. An opportunity like this is seldom and fleeting, so if you want to take it home, call today!
