1978 Lincoln Continental Mark V Diamond Jubilee Edition Blu Eust062213
I thought I had videoed this car before, and I HAVE! I finally located
it..and if you check it, you'll see that the windows are up...in the
current video, I have much better interior shots. The original video is at:
At any rate, this is an exceptional Diamond Jubilee car..and the interior
shots sure indicate a level of luxury that befits a Continental.
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!
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.
