Diamond in the Rough: Restoring a Classic American Luxury Car ( Episode 7 )
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) On this 7th episode of A Diamond In the Rough,
Ted and Roman continue work on the Diamond Jubilee. Today, they go and test
the Lincoln to see how fast the old girl will go from 0-60 MPH at a mile
above sea level. Will the Mark V break 12 seconds? You'll have to watch the
video to find out.
Ford built the 1978 Lincoln Continental Mark V Diamond Jubilee Edition to
celebrate the companies 75th year in the automobile business. A grand total
of just 5,159 cars were built. To help celebrate the the 75th anniversary
and to distinguish the car from other Lincoln Mark V the Diamond Jubilee
was available in only two colors, Diamond Blue and Jubilee Gold. In this
very special and very personal 3rd episode Roman Mica and his British Car
mechanic friend Ted Ax set out to restore and Roman's Dad's old and very
neglected 1978 Continental Mark V Diamond Jubilee edition.

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!
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.

After a one-year absence, 1982 saw the Continental name reapplied to a
mid-size car based on the long-wheelbase version of the Ford Fox platform.
Intended to compete with the Cadillac Seville (priced in 1982 from
$23,433), the new Continental was priced from $21,302. Unlike the Seville,
which switched to a front-wheel drive chassis for 1980, the 1982
Continental remained rear-wheel drive. While the now-unrelated Mark VI was
produced in coupe and 4-door styles, the new Continental was strictly a
four-door sedan. For 1982, the Continental was offered in base, Signature
Series, and Givenchy Designer Series trim. Starting in 1983, the Signature
Series trim was dropped but base and Designer (Givenchy and/or Valentino)
trims continued through 1987. The 1982 Signature Series and Givenchy
Designer Series Continentals included many additional standard features and
added $3,100 to $3,500 to the price of the base model. Fully optioned
Signature and Givenchy models would top out at over $26,500 (approximately
$63,043 in today's dollars) and were among the most expensive Lincoln
sedans built to date. The standard powertrain for 1982 was shared with the
Town Car; a carbureted version of the Ford 302 cid V8 backed by the new
4-speed AOD automatic transmission. Fuel injection replaced the carburetor

1970 Lincoln Continental Mark III Test Drive
Visit http://www.sunsetclassics.com/1970-lincoln-mark-iii/ to see this
restored classic 1970 Lincoln Continental Mark III for sale from Sunset
This car is nearly impeccable. It has been completely restored down to the
gas tank, brakes, engine rebuilt, interior and paint. The bumpers have been
rechromed and the front grill looks brand new. The seller says he has
$30,000 into the restoration. The chroming alone totaled around $4,000. The
result is stunning. This car exudes style, class, luxury and respect.
From the undercarriage to the engine, this car is just about as nice as
possible. It has the 460 ci engine, factory A/C (that hasn't been charged
since the engine was reassembled), and power everything. The engine has
fewer than 3000 miles on it since it was rebuilt.
The white wall tires are new on this car. They not only look great, but
they are one of many items that help this car ride as smoothy as possible
down the road.
Have a look through the photos via the link above, and let me know if you
have any questions! I can help with shipping Worldwide, so wherever you may
be, I can help you get this car into your collection safely.
Thanks for checking out this 1970 Lincoln Continental Mark III for sale!

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!
