1983 Lincoln Continental MK VI Pucci Edition
Ford's Lincoln Division introduced the downsized Continental Mark
VI in 1980 and kept the model in production through 1983. The fifth
generation of Lincoln's Mark Series, the Mark VI was the first
ground-up revision of the model line since 1972, and the first
generation to undergo downsizing.
As the flagship line of Ford Motor Company, the Mark VI was fitted
with distinct features to distinguish itself from the Lincoln Town
Car, including the return of Designer Edition trims which had
exclusive exterior and interior color combination and additional
equipment over the standard-trim Mark VII.
This is one of them we have here at Adventure Classics. A 1983
Designer Series Pucci Edition Mark VI Lincoln Continental.
Engine & Drivetrain
The engine in our Lincoln is a small block Ford 302 cubic inch V8
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.
It sits in the factory stock engine compartment and retains all the
air cleaner, valve covers, power steering and brakes, air
conditioning, air induction, and everything that it came with from
the assembly plant back then.
Our 1983 Lincoln Continental MK VI Pucci Edition retains the
original Interior that is also in very good condition. It has that
great rich-looking blue plush leather twin seats with armrest in
the front and a matching sofa like seat in the rear along with one
of the most touted options the 1983 Continental offered, the
instrument cluster with speedometer, odometer, fuel gauge,
temperature gauge, and trip computer, and many pushbutton to
operate the controls.
Other features include 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 1983 Lincoln Continental MK VI Pucci Edition has that great
looking Pucci blue paint scheme that remains in very good condition
accented by the carriage roof which is also in excellent shape.
All the body panels, chrome trim, badging, and lower chrome panel
on each side look good on this 81,000 mile pampered Lincoln.
It rides on matched wire wheels with thin white wall tires and has
a great ride and handling because Ford had put the Continental on a
diet and it had previously shed 10 inches of its wheelbase and 14
inches in length losing nearly 1000 pounds of curb weight.
This 1983 Lincoln Continental MK VI Pucci Edition we have at
Adventure Classics is a stunning scheme of the blue and dark blue
top and appears to be a well-preserved example.
