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!

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.

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 black lacquer.

KBB review 1979 Lincoln Continental
Kelley Blue Book's video review of my 1979 Lincoln Continental, Mary Todd





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 does continue.

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. )





The History of Lincoln
Henry Leland, a former manager of the Cadillac division of General Motors, and his son, Wilfred Leland, formed the Lincoln Motor Company in August, 1917. Leland named the new company after Abraham Lincoln, his hero and for whom he cast a vote in 1864. Lincoln's first source of revenue came from assembling Liberty aircraft engines, using cylinders supplied by Ford Motor Company, to fulfill World War I government contracts. After the war, the Lincoln factories were retooled to manufacture luxury automobiles. Ford Motor Company purchased the Lincoln Motor Company in 1922, but Lincoln continued to operate as a somewhat separate company from Ford through early 1940. On April 30, 1940 the Lincoln Motor Company became the Lincoln Division of Ford Motor Company At the direction of Henry's son Edsel, in 1923 several body styles were introduced, that included two- and three-window, four-door sedans and a phaeton that accommodated four passengers. They also offered a two-passenger roadster and a seven-passenger touring sedan and limousine, which was sold for $5,200. A sedan, limo, cabriolet and town car were also offered by coachbuilders Fleetwood, Derham and Dietrich, and a second cabriolet was offered by coachbuilder Brunn. As the brand grew it developed several memorable vehicles, the Zephyr, the Continental Mark II, the Lincoln Continental and recently the ubiquitous Town Car.
