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.
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!

Here's a video of start up, playing with the toys, and a bit of a walk
around. The carburetor hates desert heat, so sorry for the funky
idle--time for a rebuild. This is the ultimate highway cruiser.

1976 LINCOLN MARK IV - PERFECT IN EVERY WAY
I'm a little prejudice for this car for I love all Lincolns including my
own '76 Continental but this Mark IV is a perfect, almost new appearing
example. This was the year Mark IV Designer Series came out. The special
editions came with Cartier, Bill Blass, Givenchy, and Pucci
interior/exterior designs. This example is not one of them but it appears
as if it was just driven off the showroom floor. The only engines in
Lincolns this year was the sturdy V8, 460 with a listed 202 horsepower, but I think
really closer to the 400 level. The price for a Mark like this was around
$11,000 and the weight was registered at a heafty 5,083 lbs. I can tell
you that these 460 engines are smooth and library quiet. Things to notice
on this exquisite Mark is the fashionable Rolls Royce type grille, parking
lamps out front, patterned vinyl strips that go over the wheel wells, that
fabulous dash design surrounded by plush white leather interior, full
vinyl roof that is perfect after all these years, and the familiar faux
continental kit at the rear. Notice the distinctive tailights that readily
tell you that you're behind a Mark. By the way, 56,110 Marks were sold
this year soundly beating 14,000 Cadillac Eldorados, the Mark competition.
I hope you enjoyed the tour of this like-new Mark and thank you very much
for viewing this 1976 Lincoln Mark IV.

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.
