1978 Lincoln Continental MK5
Here is one of the finest MK5's you'll see on the road today! This one is
a Bill Blass Edition that came with some very luxurious detailing! It's
powered by a 460ci V8 and a C6 3 speed automatic transmission. It's also
equipped with power steering, 4 wheel power disc brakes, A/C, hide-away
headlights, and sits on a set of turbine-styled cast aluminum wheels with
Firestone white wall tires! Aside from the Bill Blass indication on the
rear opera windows, the interior has Chamois leather upholstery, Cartier
instruments, power windows, power sunroof, power seats, an AM/FM 8 track
player (that works!), remote mirror, and over head lighting! Overall, the
interior of this '78 Lincoln is luxurious even by today's standards. The
Midnight Cordovan painted body is super straight, VERY shiny, and the
beautiful chrome accents it nicely! The MK5 runs exceptionally well and
shows very little wear for it's age! All in all, this thing is like driving
a leather couch with doors! You'd be hard pressed to find a nicer one!
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

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
Lincoln What a luxury car used to be
Hybrids, little frisky V-6 engines, and front wheel drive suck. Detroit
has lost their way a long time ago on what a real luxury car is and should
be. Nothing today rides, or even compares to the cars Ford Motor Company
produced under the Lincoln brand, say for the stand alone survivor, the
Town Car, which is nothing to what it used to be. Cadillac, and Chrysler
have nothing to offer say for reworked front drive basic transportation and
a couple rear drive, cheap engineered, basic drivers. Sit back and enjoy
some history as it parades across your screen. Thank You for watching.
1979 Lincoln Mark V Collector's Series
Here's a video of start up, playing with the toys, and a bit of a walk
around. The carburetor hates desert heat, so sorry for the funky
idle--time for a rebuild. This is the ultimate highway cruiser.
