Immaculate original Lincoln Continental Town Coupe. The last of the big ones! Like its Continental Mark V twin, these were Ford's ultimate luxury statement and 1979 brought to an end the largest, longest cars ever made by the Ford Motor Company. Although only on sale for three model years '77-'79, the Continental Mark V series was the best-selling version ever of the Lincoln Mark Series, with a total of 228,262 examples sold.
This car is mint original and in impeccable condition. From the twenty Lincoln colours available in 1979 this car was produced in Classic White with sumptuous Dark Red Leather interior and signature partial padded vinyl roof. The paint is completely original, the car has seen no paint or repairs of any kind. The condition and quality of the interior, seats, door trims, dash, wheel and carpets is amazing and literally as new. And with the front bench armrests folded up this car has the seatbelts in place to comfortably carry the chauffeur and five passengers.
Running it's original 6.6 litre 400ci Cleveland V8, the only engine choice in '79, it carries all the expected features including 3 speed column Cruisomatic trans, factory A/C and power steer, pop-up headlights lights, power windows and locks, tilt wheel, power seats, power antenna, tinted glass, steering mounted cruise, decor interior lights, intermittent wipers, and Cartier clock.
Showing a genuine 62,000 miles this car drives like new, it's 4 coil suspension is the benchmark in ride comfort and smoothness.
