1976 LINCOLN MARK IV - PERFECT IN EVERY WAY
I'm a little prejudice for this car for I love all Lincolns including my
own '76 Continental but this Mark IV is a perfect, almost new appearing
example. This was the year Mark IV Designer Series came out. The special
editions came with Cartier, Bill Blass, Givenchy, and Pucci
interior/exterior designs. This example is not one of them but it appears
as if it was just driven off the showroom floor. The only engines in
Lincolns this year was the sturdy V8, 460 with a listed 202 horsepower, but I think
really closer to the 400 level. The price for a Mark like this was around
$11,000 and the weight was registered at a heafty 5,083 lbs. I can tell
you that these 460 engines are smooth and library quiet. Things to notice
on this exquisite Mark is the fashionable Rolls Royce type grille, parking
lamps out front, patterned vinyl strips that go over the wheel wells, that
fabulous dash design surrounded by plush white leather interior, full
vinyl roof that is perfect after all these years, and the familiar faux
continental kit at the rear. Notice the distinctive tailights that readily
tell you that you're behind a Mark. By the way, 56,110 Marks were sold
this year soundly beating 14,000 Cadillac Eldorados, the Mark competition.
I hope you enjoyed the tour of this like-new Mark and thank you very much
for viewing this 1976 Lincoln Mark IV.
1973 Lincoln Continental STK 1407
When you talk about Lincoln Continentals, you have memories of someone
successful, someone who has made it so to speak. Back in 1973 when this car
was born, gas prices were rising, lines were forming and only the upper
crest could afford this type of elegance. Now, today, this car is still a
mark of class and distinction. Not only is the body laser straight with a
deep elegant maroon paint, the body seems impeccably solid. The chrome is
beautiful, emblems are crisp and sharp, which are all in the factory
original positions. The glass is very good, lenses are sharp and clear. The
interior is like new. Not even sun fading on the dash is present. The tan
leather seats are soft and supple just the way there suppose to be. Carpet,
headliner and panels are in excellent condition, even the clock works!
We could talk for hours about how well built and solid this 70's
masterpiece is, but the real question is how was she maintained. Well, an
all original with numbers matching, you would expect proper care and with
this car you get it! The original window sticker, 2 build sheets and
manuals are still there. I mean, the original first vehicle registration is
even there! Maintenence of this vehicle has been a primary mission. A new
custom bent dual Exhaust, new A/C
compressor with the STV converted to POA valve, new expansion valve and
receiver dryers. New door locks, trunk lock and AM/FM stereo. New heater
core and HCV, new motor gears in the windows and all windows lubed. This
car was seriously taken care of!
This vehicle is located in our Charlotte, NC showroom. For more

1972 Lincoln Continental Cold Start and Drive
This is a 1972 Lincoln Continental featuring the 460 c.i. (7.5L) 4bbl. V-8,
C6 transmission, and 9.25" removable carrier rear end. Power output is
224hp @ 4,400 RPM and torque is 357Lb./Ft. @ 2,800 RPM through a single Exhaust w/ resonator. Values are SAE net.
This is the first year of the "regular fuel" engines, so the compression
ratio is 8.5:1 (down from 10.5:1 from 1970). I go over some details about
the car in this video, perform a cold start, and a short drive to
demonstrate the unique speedometer. More videos about this car to come as
maintenance needs arise. Footage shot on 2/18/2012 using a Sony Handycam
model DCR-TRV27. There is a pause at 15:03, but keep watching. The video
