1979 Lincoln Continental Mark 5

Car History

When we say the 1979 Lincoln Continental Mark 5 we have here at Adventure Classics is a creampuff, we do not mean it lightly. This Mark 5 is a beautiful example of 80's Luxury Cars with its white paint job and maroon landau roof with a matching burgandy plush leather interior.

This Mark 5 is truly a time-capsule of a car since it only has an actual 26978 miles on it, and it shows!


Under the hood of our Lincoln is a small block Ford 400 cubic inch V8 providing plenty of power and torque with a 4-speed Automatic Overdrive Transmission (AOD) which had been developed and was an industry-first transmission that featured both a mechanically-engaged overdrive fourth gear and third and fourth-gear torque converter lock-up.

Everything on this engine and in the engine compartment appears to be all original. It has all the factory parts it came with back then including the fresh air cleaner assembly, blue painted engine and valve covers, air conditioning, power brakes, power steering,

It sits in the clean and factory stock engine compartment and retains all the air cleaner, valve covers, power steering and brakes, air conditioning, ram air induction, and everything that it came with from the assembly plant back then.


Our Mark has the plush burgundy tan leather twin bucket seats with armrests in the front and a matching sofa like seat in the rear along with the great instrument cluster with speedometer, odometer, fuel gauge, temperature gauge, and trip computer, a premium sound AM/FM w/Cassette system, Lighting Off-Delay, Air Conditioning, Cruise Control, Power Locks, Power Windows, Key-Pad Entry, Power Antenna, and much more.


The Lincoln has a nice looking exterior color of white over the exposed headlights, maroon landau top with the porthole window, and all the straight looking body panels on this 26,000 mile pampered Lincoln.

Everything looks as it did back in 1979 with great glass, trim, maroon side trim, iconic spare tire styled trunk, chrome mirrors, front and rear chrome bumpers, and side louvers on both front fender panels.

It rides on matched Lincoln looking hubcaps on factory wheels with thin white wall tires and has a great ride and handling.


This 1979 Lincoln Continental Mark 5 we have here at Adventure Classics is probably one of the nicest originals you will ever find.

Don't miss your chance to own this example of classic luxury that is a one owner car since it was purchased in 1979.
