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!
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
1977 Lincoln coupe with new 460 engine, mild build
Well, since I painted it, it has been on the road 6 years, we wanted to get
rid of the low compression 460 and used a 1972 460 which we built to 10:5
to 1 compression, used a performance intake also, mild cam upgrade, it is
probably putting out about 400 horsepower. We also
repainted the front fenders to get rid of small nicks from being on the
road. Stripped front fenders to bare metal, and repainted with 10 coats

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.

2002 Lincoln Town Car - Grand Marquis Replacement
Back around Thanksgiving, we hit a deer with our 2000 Grand Marquis. They
eventually ended up totalling out the car, so we needed to find a
replacement. We just recently bought this 2002 Lincoln Town Car. It has
really low miles for the year and seems like a nice solid car. I thought
I'd give you an update on the situation. I ended up doing a full
walkaround and a test drive, so this video went a little long. I hope you
find it interesting, thanks for watching!
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.
1976 LINCOLN CONTINENTAL - ONE OF THE LAST DINOSAURS
Okay, so this is a gas guzzling 4 door sedan dinosaur but it's mine and I
like it. I am the second owner of this car and it is in totally original
unrestored condition. Let me tell you about this boat. It has the
reputable 460 cu. in. engine with 70,000 miles and the curb weight is about
5,073 lbs. The ride of this Town Car is magnificent! It has the
smoothest ride I have ever experienced in a luxury car and I have ridden or
have driven Cadillacs, Mercedes, Buicks, Oldsmobiles, etc., and this car
absolutely floats. AND quiet! I have mistakenly tried to restart the car
without looking at an idiot light thinking that the engine had died, and
no, it was still running, I just couldn't hear it. This Lincoln does not
have all of the options available but does have an automatic tranny, power
steering, seats, windows, antenna, door locks, trunk release, A/C, climate
control thermometer, Cartier clock - still works, map light, wire wheel
covers, fender skirts, double pinstripe, vinyl padded roof, and dual remote
mirrors. The only item not factory is the AM/FM tape player of which I
have yet to install my factory unit. The interior is flawless finished in
a mustard color velour and vinyl. The carpeting is in finished in a
"shag" type of pile which was popular in the seventies both in cars and in
homes. The trunk is huge and the original spare is present. During
the video tour notice under the hood the two black "coffee can" vacuum
pumps for the hidden headlights which still operate. I taped this car
from a distance to show off the side view and the fact that this car is
over 19 1/2 feet in length. I have won numerous trophies at car shows.
So yes, this car is heavy, powerful, and a gas guzzler getting 12mpg in the
city and at best 17 mpg on the highway. Cars of the 70's were commonly
gas hogs until the great gas squeeze due to the Yom Kippur War in the
middle east. At that point, U.S. car makers scrambled to reduce the size
and bulk of cars making a lot of downsized models look unproportionate and
an incomplete design. Lately though, car collectors are looking twice at
seventies cars though and four door sedans in particular as being more
appreciated and collectible. Perhaps this video will reevaluate your own
feelings for old dinosaurs. ( Here's a hint for you car enthusists that
want to clean up the engine compartment........Spray WD-40 on a COLD
engine. Don't wipe, just let it drip off the grime and do it in the street
- not your driveway so as not to stain. WD will, upon several
applications, melt the grime away without leaving a residue like engine
cleaners do but does leave a sheen on rubber and plastic. You can wipe off
excess WD with a cloth because it really cleans surfaces. Again, since WD
is flammable, only use on a stone COLD, I repeat - COLD engine compartment.
