Barn Find - 1978 Lincoln Continental Town Car, Garage Find, Survivor
A follow up video to the "other" Lincoln that was parked next to the 1959 MKIV in a twin garage. Both of these cars have sat untouched for nearly 20 years. The 78 is on the road and the 59 is next for resurrection!
MAY 6, 2013: THIS CAR IS NOW FOR SALE! I've put about 2000 miles on it since I picked it up and it's been well maintained. As you can see from the vid, it's nearly perfect. There are a few small tears in the vinyl top and the muffler needs replaced. That's it. PM me if you're interested. The car is located in Wyoming.

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 4,500 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. )
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.

1979 Chrysler New Yorker 5th Avenue
This is Wanda. She's an R-body New Yorker from 1979 - which means she's kinda rare; especially in this shape and with the options she has.
This is not meant to be serious. I'm just trying to have some fun and figure out how to edit audio/video on my Mac.
Bonus pop-culture points to anyone who can name the song, band, and year of release for the background song. No cheating with the Google-nets, either.
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.

Bagged 1964 Lincoln Continental on 24 Inch Rims
Just wanted to show the range of travel of the air suspension on the Lincoln. In the video the air compressors are running the whole time. They seem a bit loud however in person they are actually extremely quiet and can barely be heard above the normal idle of the car. Slam specialties HE-7 airbags with a 10 gallon tank and 2 Viair 480c compressors rubber mounted.
