For Sale: 1973 Lincoln Continental in Grand Rapids, Michigan

Vehicle Description

1973 Lincoln Continental Mk IV - Same Owner Since 1974 - 460ci V8 - Automatic Transmission - 33k Miles - Maroon Over Brown Interior Produced from 1972 through the 1976 model years, the Lincoln Continental Mark IV is a personal luxury vehicle that shared its chassis with the Ford Thunderbird. Although it saw little direct competition in the American marketplace, it nearly exclusively competed against the Cadillac Eldorado, which was redesigned for 1971. Lincoln brought back hidden headlights along with a radiator-style grille and a Continental spare tire trunk lid for this generation. Available only as a two-door hardtop coupe, the new Continental was four inches longer than the previous model adding to the visual impression of an extremely long hood. With so little differentiating the years and models of this generation, savvy buyers will want to concentrate heavily on condition and mileage when seeking out these vehicles. Highlighted here is a 1973 Lincoln Continental Mk IV which presents the epitome of 1970s luxury. Shown with what appears to be its original maroon color, black vinyl top and pinstriping, this vehicle displays the fact that it has been owned by the same owner since 1974. With hidden headlights and larger-than-life front fascia, this vehicle reminds us of something that a mafia boss would drive on his off day. The exterior is in very nice condition and all the chrome components shine with great luster. The black vinyl top retains its initial appearance and is offset by port quarter windows on the rear quarters. This large luxury sedan is powered by a 460ci V8 that is paired with an automatic transmission and only shows 33k miles on the odometer. With a full engine compartment, you can be assured that this vehicle will float down the road and provide the smooth ride that you should expect from any Lincoln Continental. The chassis and undercarriage show a little wear from the small number of miles but appear solid and functional. For the driver and passenger, you will find a completely brown interior. From the wood inserts on the dash to the carpet and the brown button tuffed seats, it is brown as far as the eye can see. All interior components are in excellent visible shape with few signs of wear. The only thing that we would be able to gripe about would be what appears to be a missing section of carpet in the trunk. Regardless of whether you are looking for a personal luxury time capsule or feeding into your internal mafia boss spirit, this Lincoln is the perfect sedan for you. Like mentioned above, these vehicles differentiate themselves through mileage and condition and this vehicle is a very nice example. We hope that you consider adding this Continental to your collection. Please call if interested or e-mail with any questions. Thank you for looking.
