Collectible Motorcar of Atlanta is proud to present this low and in
charge 1977 Lincoln Mark V.
Despite decades of engineering progress, nobody has managed to
duplicate the floating, effortless feeling of a true American
Luxury car like this 1977 Lincoln Mark V. With a giant V8 up front,
chiseled features, and a long list of features, this is as close as
you're going to find to the ultimate American luxury car
experience. If you were at the top of the world in 1977, THIS is
what you drove.
With such careful maintenance on this car, you know the bodywork is
in good shape. Body gaps and fit are still just as the assembly
line workers bolted it together, and the paint has had a custom low
rider touch added. The colors are elegant and sophisticated with a
touch of west coast cool. The original white vinyl padded half-roof
remains in outstanding, unblemished condition thanks to years of
careful ownership, and the chrome is in great shape and there sure
is a lot of it! Lenses, the hood ornament, and the rub strips along
the lower flanks of the car are all in great condition. And yes,
the folding headlights work properly. We see a lot of these cars,
and this one is better than most.
Inside, the white interior is the epitome of '70s fashion and
luxury. Sure, it looks a little bit like Hugh Hefner's living room,
but you can't argue with the preservation and amazing comfort
levels. There are a lot of controls for all the power options,
ranging from power windows and locks, to cruise control on the
steering wheel, to the beautiful clock nestled into the dash. Of
course, A/C and a tilt wheel are included.
Lincoln's 460 V8 won the displacement war, as Cadillac downsized to
a 425 V8 in 1977. Entirely original and showing proper maintenance,
the engine bay is packed with wires and hoses, all dedicated to
making the big Lincoln waft along in eerie silence. The big V8
makes enough torque to give the sensation of limitless
acceleration, much like an electric motor, and drives the power
accessories without hesitation. Hoses, belts, and other routine
maintenance items have been replaced, but for the most part it's
100% stock and original under the hood. A C6 3-speed automatic
shifts almost imperceptibly, and with 2.73 gears in the 9-inch rear
end. It's super clean underneath, obviously coming from a southern
climate, and it sits on big 235/75/15 whitewall radials and wire
rims for a classic low rider look.
The world will never again see cars like this, and you'll be amazed
by how well this one look, drives and handles. Lincoln knew what it
was doing when it built this car, and one drive will show you the
way. Call today!
