My Car Collection 1979 Lincoln Continental Collector's Series
This Lincoln Continental is one of the less driven cars in my car
collection it has no 12k miles Originals it has never been restored or
something like that, it works absoulutely everything ,power windows,powered
locks, it has a working MAGAZINE, its really in a mint condition as you can
see it, it runs a V8 Ford 400ci (6.6lt) . The 1979 Collector's Series Mark
V was equipped essentially the same as the Diamond Jubilee Edition of 1978;
virtually every Lincoln luxury was provided as standard equipment on these
cars. Offered in just two colors initially, Midnight Blue Moondust Metallic
and White, two additional colors, Light Silver Moondust Metallic and
Crystal Blue Moondust Metallic, were offered later in the year.The
"Collector's Series" option almost doubled the retail price of the standard
Continental Mark V to almost $22,000 US dollars, The Mark V version truly
was limited with production of just 5,159 cars. Enjoy
parking my 1965 lincoln continental with glasspacks
Unless you want to hear it start, fast forward to 1:20. This is me, in I
think about 2002, parking my 1965 Lincoln Continental (ALL original minus
the glasspacks) next to my tiny little 1994 Subaru Justy (semi-intentional
burnout hehe). 430ci engine with 10.1:1 compression ratio. 2.5" pipes from
the Exhaust manifolds to glass packs,
and nothing in between :)
To all the upvotes - thank you all :) you're awesome :)
Update: Just sold it last weekend (end of Sept 2014). Heartbreaking, but I
absolutely could not have hoped for a better home for it. Thanks again
guys, and I'm glad there (narrowly) ended up being no fatalities getting it
on that trailer :D
132337 / 1969 Lincoln Continental Mark III
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/7yjoxet
Showing just 30,084 original miles, this triple black Mark III is the
epitome of late '60s cool. You just know Sinatra owned one just like this,
and prowled the Las Vegas strip in it, the big block under the hood
rumbling with authority, while the luxury-filled interior coddled him and
his lady companions in the finest tradition. Nothing looks better on these
cars than black, and the bodywork on this one was undoubtedly very straight
before the work started, and today it's simply amazing. In the photos, you
can sight down the flanks and see that there are no ripples or signs of
bodywork, and that someone block sanded the hell out of this body before
the two stage urethane went on. There's a subtle relief line that runs the
length of the car, kicking up on the quarter panel, and alignment is
spot-on from one panel to the next. There's about an acre of sheetmetal in
that hood, and I'm astounded that they've been able to get it to look and
fit as well as it does.
The engine compartment of this car might be the nicest we've ever seen.
Everything appears as new, from the bright Ford Blue paint on the block, to
the hoses and fittings. The 460 cubic inch V8 in the Continental was a
high-compression 4-barrel unit, and the Mark III was most certainly a
gentleman's express. With 365 horsepower, it powers the
big coupe with effortless ease, and when you drop the hammer, it moves with
real authority. The A/C system has been completely rebuilt and uses R134a
refrigerant, so it will be reliable and easy to service in the future.
Things like the inner fenders, the radiator cradle, and the firewall are in
exceptional condition, and all the wiring appears new. With only 30,000
miles, this is an extremely strong runner that rides and drives like a
full-sized Lincoln should.
Harnessing all that big block power is a Ford C6 3-speed automatic driving
a rugged Ford 9-inch with 2.83 gears out back. Thanks to the engine's
massive torque reserves, tall gears really aren't required, and this is one
of those cars designed to hammer across vast stretches of interstate at
high speeds in supreme comfort. The Exhaust system has been upgraded to some
seriously big pipes and Flowmaster style mufflers, which give the big coupe
a deep voice that is ideal for its luxury/sport mission. The wheels are
positively massive 20-inch Boss Motorsports pieces wearing Yokohama
radials, and quite honestly, they look great on the car. Where the original
tires look kind of lost under those big fenders, these manage to stuff the
wheel wells without significantly degrading ride quality to a great extent.
The high style continues inside, where the original cloth and vinyl
interior is almost 100% intact and in spectacular condition. Power windows
and locks were standard equipment, of course, and the controls are at your
fingertips on the nicely preserved door panel. Both the driver and
passenger get six-way power seats that are fully functional and extremely
comfortable. The steering wheel is a recent addition, but it looks right at
home in the flashy Continental passenger compartment, with a bright billet
aluminum center and a leather-wrapped rim.
Cars like this are red hot right now. Collectors are realizing that they
are exceptionally nice vehicles to drive, and they were some of the most
expensive vehicles on the road when they were new. Pop culture has embraced
'60s Lincoln Continentals as well, and a younger generation is discovering
what amazing machines these full-sized luxury cruisers really are. With a
few tasteful upgrades, this Mark III is surely one of the nicest anywhere
at any price. And there's simply no color combination better than triple
black on these wonderful machines. Call us today!

Bagged 1964 Lincoln Continental on 24 Inch Rims
Just wanted to show the range of travel of the air suspension on the
Lincoln. In the video the air compressors are running the whole time.
They seem a bit loud however in person they are actually extremely quiet
and can barely be heard above the normal idle of the car. Slam specialties
