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
Lincoln What a luxury car used to be
Hybrids, little frisky V-6 engines, and front wheel drive suck. Detroit
has lost their way a long time ago on what a real luxury car is and should
be. Nothing today rides, or even compares to the cars Ford Motor Company
produced under the Lincoln brand, say for the stand alone survivor, the
Town Car, which is nothing to what it used to be. Cadillac, and Chrysler
have nothing to offer say for reworked front drive basic transportation and
a couple rear drive, cheap engineered, basic drivers. Sit back and enjoy
some history as it parades across your screen. Thank You for watching.

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.

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!

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...

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
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 Lincoln Continental was produced from 1939 to 1948 and again from 1956
to 2002. The Continental was a distinctively styled, highly equipped,
luxury car. Its name conveyed prestige. This generation of Continental is
favored by collectors and has appeared in many motion pictures, such as The
Matrix, The Last Action Hero, and the Inspector Gadget films. It has also
appeared in the television series Pushing Daisies, and recently in the
opening sequence of the television series Entourage.
The fourth generation Continental's most recognized trademark, front
opening rear doors, was a purely practical decision. The doors were hinged
from the rear when Lincoln engineers kept hitting the doors with their feet
when examining the back seats. The suicide doors were to become the
best-known feature of 1960s Lincolns. The Continental was the first postwar
four-door convertible from a major U.S. manufacturer.
Vanguard Motor Sales is proud to present this, two owner, 1966 Lincoln
Continental Convertible. Let me just say, if you are tired of being a
spectator at the car shows, and you are ready to get some attention, this
is the car for you. With the suicide doors, brand new Gangster white wall
tires mounted on the original wheels, and a power hide-away convertible top
that works without hesitation, you will be turning heads wherever you go.
This triple black Continental has a straight and solid body. The gaps and
panels line up perfectly, the doors open and shut without and problems. The
paint isn't perfect, but it is nice and shines up great. The chrome is in
average condition. The undercarriage is solid, as you can see from the
pictures. There aren't any holes in the pans or frame rot. The squared-off
grille houses the headlights, and sits above the chrome bumper, which
features the parking lights and front turn signals. The taillights are
fitted with a ribbed chrome grille on each side, and set in the rear
Pop the hood and you'll find the 462ci big block motor, with 80k original
miles. The automatic transmission shifts smoothly, and with the power
steering, this boat practically floats down the road. Power brakes are
another nice feature that really makes driving this convertible a true
Inside this convertible you will find the original black leather interior.
The walnut-paneling on the doors ads to the prestige look. Front factory
seat belts with retractors, a tilt wheel, and both power seat and windows
make for one comfortable ride. The A/C is currently inoperable, but who
needs A/C when you can put the top down?
Product breakdown for the 1966 Lincoln Continental consisted of 65% sedans,
29% coupes, and just under 6% for the four-door convertible. Total sales
were close to 55,000 in 1966, which means only around 3,200 of these 4 door
convertibles were made. How many do you think are left? This is an amazing
opportunity to own one of these luxury automobiles for a reasonable price.
It runs great, drives straight down the road and will be a great cruiser
for summer nights. Don't miss out on this opportunity, call today!
