1972 was the first year for the Lincoln Continental Mark IV, and it
sure was a good year for the Continental! Luxury barges were in
full effect, and stricter federal vehicle safety regulations had
yet to be implemented. This attribute gave us the 1972 Continental
Mark IV, an unencumbered land yacht with gorgeous lines that lacked
the atrocity of "five mile an hour" impact bumpers.
The 1972 Continental looks drastically different from 1973, and the
only key difference is the bumpers! The 1973 model wears impact
bumpers which make it look both longer and wider. The 1972 bumpers
make the car look clean, smooth, and much more "classic." In fact,
for as large as it is, it almost looks sporty! The exterior of this
car is clean and straight with good driver quality paint. The vinyl
top is intact but showing its age. With a new vinyl top, this
Lincoln would really turn heads! The wire spoke wheels are not
factory, but they do work with the appearance of this car and can
easily be swapped out for originals. The white paint contrasts
beautifully against the dark blue interior.
The interior of this Lincoln is very comfortable and almost
soothing in a "back in time to grandma's house" type of way. The
dark blue feels classy and clean, while providing a calm backdrop
to your cross-country cruise. The interior is complete and intact
with minor wear on the front seats and some plastic repair to the
driver's door panel. Furthermore, it has that classic "Lincoln
Under the hood is what is believed to be the original Ford
monstrous 460 V8 that puts out approximately 224 horsepower. Though
this car won't be winning any speed contests, it will haul you
along leisurely wherever you are going which is exactly what it was
intended to do! The engine bay, like the exterior, is pretty well
original and appears just the way it should for 1972. It fires up
easily, drives smooth and is a great candidate to run to the local
ice cream shop with the grandkids.
Overall, this Lincoln would be a good selection for a unique
weekend cruiser. It is mostly clean and complete and the ultimate
affordable luxury cruiser.
