For Sale: 1978 Lincoln Continental in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Houston is proud to present this 1978 Lincoln Continental Mark V. The Continental Mark V is a personal luxury coupe that was marketed by the Lincoln division of Ford Motor Company from the 1977 to 1979 model years in North America. The fourth generation Mark series, the Mark V was derived from its Continental Mark IV predecessor, bringing an extensive update to the interior and exterior design. While only sold for three years, the Mark V is the highest-selling generation of the Mark series. At 230 inches long, the Mark V is the largest two-door coupe ever sold by Ford Motor Company. Powered by a strong 400 CID (6.6L) V/8, matched to its 3-speed automatic transmission. These cars weren't about performance. They were about a silent, cushy ride and plush seats that swallowed you in velour comfort. The Medium Chamois Metallic (2997) gold exterior is clean and in good condition. The gold interior is very clean, luxurious, and comfortable. The car rides nicely and would make a nice first collector car for someone, or a nice stylish daily driver which still has most of the modern creature comforts we've come to expect. The 1978 Mark V marked the apex of Lincoln luxury and engineering, as subsequent cars became victims of stricter federal requirements, badge engineering, and shifting buying habits. The Options include: AM/FM Radio, a/c, power; windows, locks, driver/passenger seats, antenna, cruise control, rear defroster, aluminum wheels, white wall radial tires.
