This 1978 Lincoln Continental is a rare two-door treat. It's a
two-owner car from the end of an era where we built cars that owned
the road. And with V8 power, a plush A/C interior, and a terrific
style that barely fits in a zip code, this has an irresistible
This is a two-owner car that has been under long-term care for over
35 years. So the well-creased body panels that make this Lincoln
look so premium have been properly respected to retain their
upper-class crispness. We like the two-door coupe from this era.
It's not a popular Mark V, which makes this the rarest of the
Continental series. More than just rarity, this is for lovers of a
more formal design. The roof line has a more upright design for a
more established style, and it's especially noticeable with the
clean full blue vinyl top. The Polar White paint is original in
many places, and so it will show some are. We like that it helps
tell this low-owner car's story, but the value price also leaves
room in your budget for a respray. And no matter your plans for
this coupe, there's an attractiveness in how the fundamentals look
so good. This means the hidden headlight doors line up nicely, the
Rolls-Royce inspired grille shines bright, the full trim looks
complete, and the classic wheel covers have a smooth elegance.
The light blue roof looks distinctive on the exterior, and it's a
preview of the elegant Wedgewood Blue interior. The low odometer is
believed to represent the full actual mileage, and so less driving
also means less seat time. That's how you get a nice preservation
on the pillow-top velour upholstery. And the side panels, carpet,
steering wheel, dash, and headliner are all done to coordinate.
There are even terrific classic details like plenty of wood-like
trim and plenty of individual lights to greet you when the door
opens. While this Lincoln is quite vintage, it also knows how to
continue to be a proper cruiser. That's because many of the classic
features have a modern appeal. The power windows, AM/FM stereo,
fold-down armrest in both rows, and cold-blowing air conditioning
keep you and your passengers happy. There's even cruise control for
Under the hood is Lincoln's hardy 400 cubic-inch V8. This one looks
very stock, but there have also been good investments in the right
areas, including newer belts and hoses. Topped with a four-barrel
carburetor it has the right torque to correctly move this coupe.
Add in a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power
brakes, front discs, and Lincoln's famously supple ride, and you'll
be ready to eat up the miles in this classic.
Complete with owner's manual, this coupe has been properly
appreciated by two owners thus far, and so you can see this crisply
presented Lincoln commands your respect. Call today!!!
