Vehicle Description

New arrival - triple blue Mark V! Low miles believed original on the optional 460 V8, car runs and drives very smooth. Blue leather interior is free of rips, tears and stains. Body is nice and clean for the year, including the vinyl top. Loaded with power options, most of which work. These late 70's cars are really beginning to gain traction among younger collectors, so don't wait or this one will be gone. Asking $4900 - reasonable offers always considered. Following on the great strengths of the Continental Mk III and Mk IV, Lincoln introduced the 1977 Continental Mk V as an evolution of its predecessors. The new car had a more squared-off appearance, but several styling characteristics carried over: concealed headlights, turn signals incorporated into the leading edge of the front fenders, an upright chrome grille, the trademark hump across the edge of the trunklid, and the oval "opera windows" in the C-pillars. The big cars offered a supple ride, both from the suspension as well as the luxurious interiors. Velour was the standard�available in seven different colors�while leather and vinyl could be specified in one of 14 colors. Standard features inside included Twin Comfort lounge seats, a Cartier clock, and a four-speaker AM/FM clock, and power came from a 400-cid V-8 making 179 horsepower, or an optional 460-cid V-8 making 208 horsepower. Both engines were mated to a 3-speed automatic transmission. The Mk V marked the apex of Lincoln luxury and engineering, as subsequent cars became victims of stricter federal requirements, badge engineering, and shifting buying habits.
