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.

Only the best cars in the nation, or should I say world, get invited to
participate and to be judged at a Concours d'Elegance car show and each

Continental Mark IV Convertible not only was invited to participate, this
absolutely stunning Mark IV took home a Blue Ribbon for best in its class.

fabulous and flawless Glacier White paint work that absolutely pops next to
all of the perfect chrome and stainless steel. The perfectly working Black
power convertible top looks great and it's hard pressed to figure out if
this baby looks better top up or top down. Even the rear Lincoln Star, side
badges and interior emblems have been re-coated with $2,000 worth of Gold
plating and clear coat to keep the shine and luster for years and years to
come. Sitting on new white wall tires that wrap up the flawless original
wheels with the original hubcaps that were painstakingly restored to
Opening the door to this unbelievable '59 Lincoln reveals brand new
aluminum thresholds on both doors and an interior that looks as if this
gorgeous ride just rolled off the Wixom, Michigan assembly line last week.
The all-leather interior was fully restored and/or refurbished using the
correct Presidential Black color leather that is so subtle and soft. The
door panel�s vinyl upholstery is original to the car and is in excellent
condition and has been re-dyed to the correct color and sheen. Just dashes
out in California restored the original dash back to its showroom ready
condition. The dash mounted original clock has been upgraded with quartz
movement and looks and works perfectly. Brand new, extra thick black
cut-pile carpet and padding covers the front and back flooring and the
lower door panels. Even the original plaid Burtex trunk lining, which is no
longer available, covers the entire trunk and looks absolutely amazing,
especially for being over 50 years old. Power seats, cold-blowing air
conditioning, power windows and the original AM radio are some of the
creature comforts that make driving this gorgeous Mark IV such a pleasant
Lifting the bonnet, you notice the extremely high and correctly detailed
engine bay that houses the numbers matching 430ci V8 that's mounted to the
strong and smooth shifting automatic transmission. All the correct labels,
stickers, stampings and tags are present and help highlight the perfect
painting and detailing of the engine and its compartment. The engine detail
is all correct except for the Sander compressor, but the original
compressor comes with the car so you can put it back to its 100% original
form. The factory air conditioning has been rebuilt with a new compressor
and new rubber lines and still runs on new R12 for very cold blowing air.
The front end was rebuilt using new poly-graphite ball joints, which help
give this pristine convertible Mark IV its ultra-luxurious ride. The

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
information, please call (704) 598-2130 or toll free (866) 542-8392.
