For Sale: 1977 Lincoln Continental Mark V in Lake Hiawatha, New Jersey

Vehicle Description

Zoom Classic Cars is proud to have some ELVIS in the house, there is a connection to this beautiful time capsule, a fully loaded 1977 Lincoln Continental Mark V - "Bill Blass Designer Edition". Here we go .... as per documentation provided this car was purchased new in 1977 by Elvis Presley himself from Foxgate Lincoln Mercury (Memphis TN, - of course). The car was an immediate purchase request by Elvis directly to the dealership and as a birthday gift to Elvis's personal jeweler - the famed Lowell Hays. Duane Curtis (Sales Mgr. at Foxgate Lincoln Mercury) personally delivered the car quickly to Grace-land and there is documented testimony from him that Elvis quickly grabbed the keys and enjoyed a drive just prior to gifting it to his good friend Lowell. As per Duane this Lincoln was the last car purchased by Elvis from the Foxgate dealership, and as we all know Elvis died shortly after. The car remained with Lowell Hays through the fall of 1978, then sold to Gary Selman who was an avid Elvis collector and documented Elvis Memorial member. Gary was diligent to research and gather as much documentation as possible in a binder for this vehicle as well as having the car relocated to the northeast. In 2015 the car was purchased by its current owner who owns a modern and classic auto repair shop where it has received great care and continued to share its history. Post "Mark 111" and "Mark IV", most might know this series "Mark V" of Lincoln as the creme de la creme (best of the best) of domestic cruisers of the 70's, highly optioned and available with special order designer editions such as this one being the "Bill Blass" Edition. Mark V marked the peak of Lincoln Luxury, engineering and performance of the decade, this one has it all. This creme puff is powered by the large 460 Cid/208Hp V8 mated with its 3-speed automatic transmission with all accessories including AC of course. In full Bill Blass attire this Lincoln holds the Cartier Clock, AM/FM 8-Track, Leather interior, factory installed CB, Power windows, Power Seats, Power Trunk, Cruise Control, Power Glass Sunroof and Cold AC (R12). Everything in this vehicle functions including the hideaway headlight doors. The car currently shows 67,727 original miles and is in amazing condition with no signs of any previous body work or finish repair. Mechanically the car has received an engine top end overhaul with factory style components including a tune up and fluid changes. This car literally floats down the road in true Lincoln fashion and certainly attracts attention with its polished exterior shine. Grab your "Blue Suede Shoes", open the Sunroof, turn up the ELVIS 8-Track and have some fun sharing the story behind this classic. This vehicle would also make a great add to any automotive collection especially ones linked to Elvis or the Music Industry. This vehicle is located in Northern, NJ. Call Scott at: (201) 483-0388.
