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

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

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!

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!

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!
