1977 Lincoln Continental Town Car walk around and cold start.
Just a short video here of my 1977 Lincoln Continental Town Car I traded for the other day. I traded off my 1999 Lincoln Town Car Executive Series and ended up with this.... She's not perfect by any means, but that's okay with me because I plan to drive it and enjoy it (when I can afford gas). It's got the 460 7.5L with 74,XXX miles. The guy I traded said he got it from an elderly man that could no longer drive it and it had been sitting outside under his carport for a number of years. And with a new battery and voltage regulator it came back to life.... And then I had to have it!
1979 Lincoln Continental STK # 1125
Looking for that classic cruiser, this rare 1979 Lincoln Continental
Collector Series fits the bill. Still sporting the original paint white
paint and the blue interior that it came out of the factory with. Powered
by the original 351ci V8 and automatic transmission with 39,169 miles on
the odometer. Lincoln luxury permeates the interior with leather, air
conditioning, power locks, power windows, power windows and an AM/FM/8
track/CB radio. The original rims are wrapped in white wall radial tires.
Power steering and power brakes make this Lincoln easy to drive. 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
SOLD : 1978 Lincoln Continental Town Car (low miles)
2011-04-29 : SOLD : 1978 Lincoln Continental Town Car with 12,904 miles.
This car is still For Sale because the tow truck, that was transporting the
car, broke down. The car never arrived at the auction. Backstory : The
original owners of this car died together in 1991 in a collision with an
articulated (semi) truck. Stories like that make me wonder whether it's
worth taking care of anything, but I still do. The car passed to their son,
who sold the car to me in 2004.
My Car Collection 1979 Lincoln Continental Collector's Series
This Lincoln Continental is one of the less driven cars in my car
collection it has no 12k miles Originals it has never been restored or
something like that, it works absoulutely everything ,power windows,powered
locks, it has a working MAGAZINE, its really in a mint condition as you can
see it, it runs a V8 Ford 400ci (6.6lt) . The 1979 Collector's Series Mark
V was equipped essentially the same as the Diamond Jubilee Edition of 1978;
virtually every Lincoln luxury was provided as standard equipment on these
cars. Offered in just two colors initially, Midnight Blue Moondust Metallic
and White, two additional colors, Light Silver Moondust Metallic and
Crystal Blue Moondust Metallic, were offered later in the year.The
"Collector's Series" option almost doubled the retail price of the standard
Continental Mark V to almost $22,000 US dollars, The Mark V version truly
was limited with production of just 5,159 cars. Enjoy

BARN FIND 1959 Lincoln Continental MKIV, Garage Find, Survivor
Following up on a 1959 Lincoln Continental from the owner of a 1963 Olds 98
convertible "survivor" I recently acquired. This car was actually parked in
1993, so it's been sitting under a cover in the solitude of a residential
garage for almost 20 years...

Featuring a standard V8 engine, body-on-frame design, rear-wheel drive and
large exterior and interior dimensions, the Town Car was based on the
Ford Panther platform. This gave it powertrain and suspension commonality
with the Mercury Grand Marquis and the Ford LTD Crown Victoria (later the
Crown Victoria). This design made them durable even in the rough conditions
taxi and livery cars are subjected to, and easy and cheap to repair when
they did suffer damage. Town Cars are typically operated in commercial
service for at least 400,000 miles.
Its large dimensions made it the largest car in production in North
America. From 1997 to 2011, the Town Car was the longest car (but not the
heaviest) built in the Western Hemisphere, measuring nearly 18 feet (5.49
m) in length for a standard Town Car and 18.5 feet (5.64 m) for an L
Lincoln is also believed to be preparing a true Town Car successor on a
rear-wheel drive platform to rival the Mercedes S-Class and BMW 7-series
The Town Car underwent a minor exterior facelift for the 1995 model year.
Changes to the exterior included smaller, clear headlights as well as
additional running lights in the rear. Larger door mirrors were
body-colored (formerly chrome), and were moved slightly forward on the door
itself. Updated bumpers front and rear, new body side moldings, and the
deletion of the small fixed window in the rear doors completed the exterior
changes. The antenna was removed from the outside of the car and integrated
into the rear window.
1995 also saw the introduction of a new steering wheel, which was used in
all Panther-based sedans from 1998 to 2004. In addition to the cruise
Also introduced in 1995 was a new digital dash layout (replacing the unit
used since 1993) that featured a more italicized look to the readouts,
while the exterior temperature readout moved from the dash cluster to the
climate control panel. A "miles to go" trip computer feature was added.
Dual power recliners with lumbar support—as well as a three-position
driver's seat and mirror memory function became standard (formerly
optional) on Signature Series which could be assigned to the keyless entry
remotes as well as the up to four personal keyless entry codes. Heated
seats were a new option, and door panel switches now featured (slight)
illumination from a lamp located below the interior door handle. Power door
lock switches were back-lit, and were mounted high up on the driver and
passenger door panels. The fuel door release (previously mounted in the
center dash panel) and trunk release button moved from inside the glove
compartment to the lower driver's side door panel. Similar to the previous
year, Signature and Cartier models featured dual clamshell storage armrests
up front with cassette storage, coin holder, and an optional Cell phone.
The 1997 Cartier models held dual cup holders in the rear center armrest,
and offered lighted vanity mirrors in the headliner for the two outboard
rear seating positions.
With the demise of the Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham after 1996, the Town Car
became the last of its kind: the last American full-size, rear-wheel drive
luxury car. The demise of the Fleetwood also made the Town Car the largest
mass-produced car available in North America.

1979 Lincoln Continental Town Coupe (Town Car 2 door) cold start
Some of you guys have been saying you would like to see my 79 Lincoln, so
here she is, all 450000km of her. This has been sitting untouched since
November so this is a cold start, and it's also pretty much out of gas
right now so i probably can't run it much. This is just a cold start with a
short tour of some of the power features that (remarkably) still work.
